Happily Engaged - Kim and Tom! Llove Aalways!!

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Kim and Tom are one of the cutest, unlikely couples that you will ever meet. Well, they say they are "unlikely" due to their difference in size, but I actually think they are a PERFECT match and the way that they interact with each other is oh so beautiful. They have complete respect and love for each other but still know how to laugh at themselves and just have a general good time. I love hanging out with them and am a bit sad that their wedding is next month because that will be the end of our meetings and crafting sessions. But I guess that is when the post-wedding friendship begins!!

Their wedding is loosely based on a children's poem that Tom once sent to Kim because it reminded him of their relationship. It is entitled, "The Llama and The Aardvark," by Leslie D. Perkins.

The Llama and the Aardvark
Went ambling by the llake;
The llama said, "I llove you
Aas much aas llemon cake."

The lady aardvark aanswered,
"I've lloved you aall aalong,
Aas much as llarks and llovebirds
Aadore aan Aapril song."

The llama said, "How llovely!
Llet's never llive aapart!"
The aalways-aardent aardvark
aagreed with aall her heart.

So, Kim decided that she wanted to go with a "Llove Aalways" theme for their wedding, with a sensible amount of aarvarks and llamas invited to make an appearance at the party. Seriously. Aren't you just dying to be invited?! 

Eddie from Up Imagery will be capturing their special day and as both of our clients, we offered them a styled engagement session where we felt like we could run with their "Llove Aalways" concept and play out scenes from the poem itself. I know it sounds a little out there - but just check out the photos! This was one of the most fun shoots to work on because the models were my clients and it was such a joy to be a part of this moment with them. 

I have to thank Jane, from Olive Hue Paper Goods, for her great illustration and design of the llama and aardvark. She let us borrow the images, originally created for their invitation suite, and print them poster sized for unique "puppet" signs for the engagement session. She also helped me cut out felt hearts and music notes, which I sewed together for garlands to hang from a beautiful tree. I also sewed together some mini felt heart pillows as a nod to llove. I brought my picnic blanket and Kim supplied a lemon cake and some lemons from their very own backyard, which I decorated with a custom "llove allways" felt letter garland and some felt heart tags! 

Hope you enjoy this set! I have another shoot that Eddie and I worked on together to share very soon!! For more images from Kim and Tom's e-session, please check out his blog! xoxo!!

Aren't they the most beautiful couple? Llove Aalways, indeed. :)
