Happy One Month Obers!
One month ago today, my sister Mattie got married! She became an "Official Ober."
I don't think I've ever seen a bride that so closely resembled Barbie. Which is just so, so Mattie. She is all things glitter, tulle, lace, and sparkle. She is a Mary Kay Director so you better believe the color pink wove its way through the wedding, too.
I flew home a couple days before the wedding and walked into full-on wedding world. There were crafting stations all over my parents' house. And if it wasn't crafts, it was bridesmaids dresses or baking stations. Or baby stuff. There's always baby stuff these days.
I was obviously not the hired photographer for Mattie's big day, but I did want to document some of the craziness of her week. I took a camera body and lens home and tried to capture what happens in the Horning household in the days leading up to a wedding. (The photos are sparse because my time was sparse. Everyone pitches in during wedding week.)
The small details of the wedding were so striking. But one of the details wasn't a DIY project, but Mattie surprising Dan and singing a song for him at the reception. Here is a clip of her practicing the morning of the wedding:
Mattie: you were stunning. I can't stop looking through the photos of you on that day. I hope Dan knows he's batting way out of his league. If he forgets, just have him give me a call.
