Nina & Jimmy | An Ayr Mount Wedding
The Saturday before Memorial Day was perfect. Blue skies, an occasional light breeze, sunshine--an ideal day for an outdoor wedding. Jimmy and Nina's early summer wedding went off without a hitch--well, except for the one that really matters, anyway. (Get it?!) They read their own vows, which were rife with inside jokes (Jimmy's mentioned a janitor's closet), making each other and all their guests laugh and showcasing the unique brand of humor that makes them a perfect fit for each other. Friends waved them off with handmade streamers, laughed at the fake programs (listing the officiant as Obi Wan Kenobi, the wedding date as Stardate 12543.7, the reception location as the Hog's Head pub in Hogsmeade) which were dispersed along with the real ones, and watched Nina and Jimmy's dog, Zeus, follow them calmly down the aisle after the ceremony.
Nina and Jimmy are regulars at Mystery Brewing's Pub House in downtown Hillsborough, so it struck them as the perfect place to hold their reception. They rolled up in a stunning vintage Excalibur and entered the bar to AC-DC's "Shoot to Thrill." Their playlists throughout the night evinced their eclectic musical taste and their background as musicians, and even though, as Jimmy said, "They're a bunch of engineers, I don't know how much dancing we really expected," the music kept people moving throughout the night. With custom velociraptor cake toppers (handmade by one of the bridesmaids), toasts recounting tales of Pokemon cards and terrible sadistic childhoods, some big ol' granny panties tossed instead of a garter, and delicious craft beers flowing freely, it was an upbeat night of endless fun celebrating two excellent individuals. We are so thrilled to have been a part of Nina and Jimmy's wedding day. Check out their awesome images below!
