Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Kara and Jon: Intimate, elegant, and vintage.
Junebug: What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day?
Kara: The venue helped drive the theme, along with my love for all things vintage.
Junebug: Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding?
Kara: We are so glad we kept it small so that we were able to enjoy and connect with family and friends throughout the evening with no pressure to host a large group.
One of our good friends, Christopher Wakeley, composed a song for us as a gift. We played it at the beginning of the ceremony, then again at dinner – everyone was in tears.
I cannot think of a venue that could have been more perfect, the romance, seclusion and scenery all helped create an enchanting atmosphere. Although our 4 1/2 year old niece did pull me aside, concerned that it might not be a real castle because it wasnt pink and real castles are pink. She then led me through a five minute discussion on how it might have been pink when it was built and just lost the color because it was so old.
We also really enjoyed the time away taking pictures after the ceremony, it gave us time to soak in the moments.
Junebug: What specifically drew you to Magnus Bogucki and his imagery?
Kara and Jon: Magnus has an amazing eye. He picks up on lines, light and composition wonderfully and has fun with the imagery. He also is great at capturing moments throughout the evening, so that we have lasting images of the time spent together not just the posed pictures. Our friends that have seen the pictures he posted on his blog have called them art. We agree.
