Liz and Jen’s Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool wedding ceremony was everything they wanted it to be: intimate, peaceful, and surrounded by loved ones. If you’re into nature, this is the perfect spot for a romantic ceremony! They did all of the planning themselves, and everything came together seamlessly. I met them at Hotel Lincoln (one of my favorites) one September morning to get ready for the day, and we had just enough time to stop at the J. Parker rooftop for some photos before heading out.

The two were married by one of Liz’s childhood friends while their guests stood in a semi-circle on either side. Truly, I don’t think there was a dry eye among us! One thing I love so much about smaller ceremonies is how personal and emotional they tend to be. If one thing is clear, it’s that these two have each other’s hearts. I don’t think they stopped smiling all day long 🙂

Liz and Jen: thank you again for having me on your wedding day! It was so wonderful to be a part of, and I wish you so much happiness in the years to come.
