Hannah & Jeff

4.8.17

 Hannah & Jeff both love getting lost in breathtaking landscapes, and wanted an intimate wedding rooted in nature and adventure. Hannah had been intrigued by Iceland for years, so they decided to get married in the little black church at Hotel Budir, on Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Originally planning to elope, Hannah & Jeff ended up bringing a group of their dearest family and friends along for this magical day. As a florist, Hannah spent the morning with her business partner creating little arrangements in a sunroom overlooking the bay and lava fields. It was just the right size for these personal touches to be manageable, which was so important to her.

in her own words...

"Jeff owns a neighborhood bar in Raleigh, NC called Person Street Bar; we met shortly after I moved into a house across the street. We had an easy, instantaneous connection that felt like home. Needless to say, I began frequenting the bar and we were soon inseparable. We took a trip to Vancouver after a year and a half of dating and he asked me to marry him on the early-morning Vancouver Island Ferry."

THE MIRI GOWN  |  Through her floral work, Hannah had already encountered Alexandra Grecco's gowns. Upon engagement, she immediately sought out her designs in Charleston. 

"The Miri Gown especially caught my eye for her minimal, wearable elegance. I knew my gown would need to easily travel by plane and be up for a bit of rough terrain during photos. Finding a gown that also felt feminine and romantic was not an easy feat, but Miri struck the perfect balance. It was absolutely the perfect gown for my needs and my style."
