      Do I have a treat for you today…

      Friends for eight years; dating for four; two and a half of those years were long distance. I’m almost certain that Michelle can’t give a small smile; her entire face lit up when we met for the first time over coffee last winter. She held Klark’s hand and said, “He’s my best friend.” And on a warm, breezy Saturday in July, Michelle and Klark were married under the big oaks at Mercury Hall. Everything about their wedding was about them: bare feet, cigar rolling by Bobalu Cigar Co., custom champagne drinks, DIY wood projects, and a lot of laughter, dancing, and amazing food by Pink Avocado.

      What an amazing night. Here’s a small glimpse into Michelle and Klark’s wonderful wedding at Mercury Hall!

      There is no doubt that this was the BEST wedding ever. The Brice family and the Sweitzer’s always had the MOST FUN. Michelle was beyond lovely and what a hunk of guy is Klark ! My Luv to all ! xoxo Joanna is so very proud of you all.

      You’re dialled in. And this wedding was style personified. Huge fan.

      I was a barefoot bride too, so how could I NOT love this wedding.
