Lydia + Matt | Shady Wagon Farm Wedding

♥ With Love From Italy…

They met at NC State and began dating during their senior year. Just after they began dating she took off for a semester abroad in Italy, and it was then that they really fell in love; writing each other sweet emails, sending pictures and letters from across the ocean.
They went to Disney World to celebrate a late Valentine’s Day/early third anniversary. She had a hunch that this would be the perfect time to propose but she wasn’t going to be upset if she was wrong. They went to Epcot and walked around World Showcase pretty quickly, and as they were walking through the Italy pavilion, he said “we need to come back here later when it gets dark.” She thought, aha! So after dinner they walked back to Italy and he proposed by the water.

This was a special wedding because Lydia designed our website, it wasn’t long before she became a fan and asked us to capture her story. We knew that there would be tons of great details at this wedding; one of our favorites was the custom bouquets and boutonnieres made from felt and buttons, which were carried out on the cake as well. Lydia wanted a very eclectic, artsy feel, and we think she definitely achieved it! Our team did a great job capturing this beautiful story! Thank you Lydia for allowing us to convert you to our side and capture your story!
