"Look at the light—it's so beautiful." Alice's vows quoted Walker when he told her this on one of their first dates; her tearful delivery, coupled with the rest of her touching promises, had many of their guests (myself included!) reaching for tissues.

This line so perfectly encapsulates these two: they are light incarnate, surrounded by the bright love of their dedicated families and friends, gleaming with their love for each other. Spots of sunlight shone through the trees surrounding Old Lystra Inn as they shared vows and celebrated; bold and colorful lights brought their dance party—high energy, enthusiastic, and relentless!—to life.

I was privileged to witness Alice & Walker's intimate wedding ceremony last year, and this celebration, though larger, was intimate in a different way—many hearts coming together to honor and share joy with these two cherished souls instead of last year's dozen guests. Literary details throughout the reception—including one of my absolute favorite guest favor ideas yet: book shopping!—acknowledged both their love of books and literature and their history (they met in a book store in London!). Pies—pumpkin, apple, chocolate chess—brought in the season as much as the open sides of the tent did, and the air all night was warm and full of love.

We have been so grateful to be part of Alice & Walker's story throughout the process of these last couple years, and have loved sharing in their joy. Enjoy a selection of our favorite images from their celebration day, and send them some bright loving vibes for a long and happy marriage as you do!
