HGTV’s show Fixer Upper is one of my favorites! If you haven’t seen it, and you love home design, waste no more time. So, when I discovered today’s bride and groom have something in common with Chip and Joanna, I was all ears. Then I saw their wedding, and I knew we had to feature it. Below is a bit about the couple from the photographer Alicia Lacey Photography.
She’s an interior decorator, and he enjoys flipping homes. You may think you’ve heard this story before, but I promise these two are not Chip and Jojo from Fixer Upper! Emily’s boss at her decorating firm introduced her to Robbie, and they immediately bonded over their love of tackling home renovation projects. A year and a half later, with the cliffs of the Big Sur, CA in the background, Robbie asked Emily to be his forever. Together, they returned home to Washington, DC to begin planning their big day!
Like most brides, Emily had only one fear on her wedding day: rain. Luckily, Saturday’s forecast arrived with none in sight. But 30 minutes before the ceremony was set to begin, guests noticed a strong wind rustling the trees, but quickly brushed it off. The bridesmaids lined up for the processional just as sprinkles landed lightly on the shoulders of the guests. And just as quickly as it came, it was gone again. The moment Emily stepped into the aisle, the sun gleamed through the trees as if to wink about the cruel joke the clouds had been playing on her not a moment before. And the rest of their wedding night went by even more perfectly. Emily slipped into her short fringe dress so these two “dance lovers”, surrounded by their friends and family, wouldn’t have to leave the dance floor the rest of the night!
Thanks for stopping by!
