This beautiful quote came from one of my favorite blogs Seeds and Stitches:
"If there were any words of wisdom I could pass on to brides/grooms to be it would be this; The most important part of the day is about making this insane (and it is insane) lifelong commitment to each other, of declaring your love to each other amongst the support and love of your family and friends around you. And having a good party. The other stuff, the details are secondary. Not unimportant,especially if you are a creative person, but secondary. And marriage rocks. It is incredible. But it isn’t easy. However,If you are both willing to look at yourselves in the mirror sometimes and say 'I'm being a stubborn twat' (really, very important), and if your both willing to compromise and talk it out, really talk, about everything, then in my experience the best is yet to come."
Cheers Hannah! Well said :)

We sourced the honey from a local farmer - something like 8 gallons in total (8 large jugs)
Then we bought 4 oz. glass jars and pewter lids from an online candle supply co., and I got to work designing round labels that were printed on sheets of avery label paper, each one cut out with a circle cutter.
Once we had the honey and jars in hand, we began filling them one-by-one with a ladle with help from our roommate Charlie.
Success! The honey was a hit and no jars were left behind.

Last fall, Erica and Collin got married at Webb Barn in Connecticut. Their wedding had all the elements that we appreciate here at PH+C. Erica’s 60's dress was found at vintagewedding.com and her veil was made from her mother's veil, to which she added new tulle and lace. Her bridesmaids bought vintage dresses from the 50’s and 60’s that they found themselves at thrift stores while the groomsmen's shirts were chosen to match the same vintage feel.
One of the highlights of the wedding was the band, aptly named The Barnstormers, which consisted of the bride, groom, father and brothers of the groom, and mother, father and aunt of the bride. Weddings are meant to be a reflection of the bride and groom and the people in their lives. This is really best highlighted by incorporating your personal talents and creativity into it!
Among the homemade decor was a giant wooden cut-out painting of Collin's father's guitar. The decorative guitar was originally made by Collin's uncle as part of a float designed by his late wife. Upon arrival to the barn, guests were served hot cider. As a gift for all the guests, they gave a mix CD.
Erica and Colin had their fingerprints imprinted on their wedding rings.
Isn't it great to see two people not giving into conventional wedding brouhaha and creating their own, creative, inspired day? Heck yes!
