Taylor and Rob

I fell in love with the Russell Family two years ago with Carrie and Adam. Those crazy kids had me work their beautiful Asticou wedding nine months pregnant. I LOVE this family. Then last year Jess and Todd asked me to work with them as well. Todd and Carrie are brother and sister, so when their first cousin Taylor and her mom called to see if I would help with their August wedding I shouted "I DO!!"

Taylor and Rob had their wedding at the family camp that has been renovated to an amazing lakeside home. It is lovingly called LTD "Living The Dream" When we sat and talked about family and this camp that was so precious to the Russell children and Grandchildren, I knew this spot was going to be magical. Now the matriarch of the Russell family, Grammie Russell, is the rock of the family. She built the original camp in East Orland with her Late husband Dr. Russell. She collects rocks and carves each of the children's name in a rock. SO it is a big deal when a "new" member of the family receives a rock. When I heard this story I knew we need to honor this family tradition. Rock where everywhere, the invitations, a rock ceremony during the ceremony, rock escort cards, rocks in the beautiful centerpieces, even a rock custom graphic down the center strip of the photo booth pictures. All the rocks where found at the lake.

NOW the Russell's KNOW how to throw a party and bocce ball games where played, everyone danced to The Waiters under the dance tent and s'mores where made in the original fireplace from the family homestead. Everything had a meaning from the Sails in the trees with Taylor's lucky number. The flowers where done by Taylor's Aunt and my friend, Jeanne Russell from Verona Island Flowers.
