Lauren & Richie’s Woodstock-Inspired Orchard Wedding

My heart is filled with love this week. It’s hard not to feel it, with Valentine’s Day creeping ever closer with its pink hearts and red roses, to fall prey to a box of chocolates and a sweet little love note or two. So when BLDG 25 blog reader Lauren sent in these pics from her recent wedding, well I just had to spread the love and share them with you. Read for Lauren’s inspiration:

“Richie and I play in a band together, so it was only natural that our wedding have a ‘Wedstock’ theme. We were married in a pecan orchard, surrounded by the most loving and wonderful people we know. Richie’s brother played guitar and a family friend played violin for the ceremony and my walk down the aisle — With A Little Help From My Friends by The Beatles for the flower children and bridesmaids, and Here, There, and Everywhere by The Beatles for me — it was beautiful and had me happy-crying almost immediately! Later, friends and family sang and played songs throughout the night, mixed in with our personal favorites: Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, and The Beatles, played mostly on vinyl. We wanted the day to be bright and fun, it was the perfect celebration of our love. Lots of smiles, messy hair, and happy happy hearts.”
