Mallory & Dan were married on a gorgeous fall day in October. Back when I met these two over coffee to discuss their wedding, I knew it was going to be a great one.

There was no bridal party; no party bus; no emcee; no speeches. Instead Mal & Dan spent the day just the two of them, driving to our photo locations in their car. They laughed, and cried, and sang a duet for their guests as a thank you speech.  It was perfect.

Bridal parties are amazing; the party bus is a laugh; and speeches are always great to hear. But if you don’t want these things, you don’t need them to have your perfect day. Just do you, and you’ll have the best day ever; whether it’s a full-day fairy tale wedding or signing papers at City Hall.

Thanks guys, for absolutely killing it on your best day ever.

xo, Victoria
