I loved this wedding. Seriously – everything about it. Colleen, Casey and their entire group of friends and family made us feel like so much a part of their day. I literally have SO much I could say about their event – I remember every single detail and moment – and I knew how special it would be to show them the images.
I was pretty much certain that Colleen and I would be the perfect match when we collectively swooned over the past Glee episodes at the Fort Lauderdale engagement session!
Colleen and Casey met at a superbowl party almost 7 years ago. After Casey realized he’d probably be stuck with Colleen forever (:)), he proposed on a snowy morning at their home in Maryland. Their destination wedding at the Jupiter Beach Resort was nothing short of amazing. Their details were soft and sweet, and they brought in fashionable details from JCrew and Anthropologie to suit their nerdy-chic style! The flowers had romantic touches of peonies, baby’s breath and billy buttons. Their music really told the story of the day (and we rocked out to LOTS of Glee music!), so keep an eye out during the post for songs they used.

Colleen’s Anthropologie bridesmaid shoes were the same Lea Michele wore on the season finale of GLEE!
I just adored Colleen’s 5 year old neice! She was telling Colleen that she looked “hot” :)
Colleen picked out Casey’s “Whale Tie” – it was one of my favorite details!
Kelly almost didn’t make it after getting stuck in airports up north the morning of the wedding. We were super happy to see her!
The girls walked down the aisle to a gorgeous version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Colleen was escorted down the aisle by her mom and dad to ‘God Only Knows’
One of my favorite ceremony moments was when Colleen and Casey read their own vows to each other.
This was our first Ring Ceremony. String was passed along the aisle and each ring was sent down,
allowing guests to touch the ring and pass it on to Casey and Colleen, symbolizing their commitment to Colleen and Casey’s marriage.
Sealed with a kiss, Colleen and Casey left the ceremony to ‘Wouldn’t it be Nice’
Celebrating their first dance to ‘First Day of my Life’ by Bright Eyes
Colleen’s sister teaching her daughter how to ‘Put a Ring On It’!
Colleen and her dad danced to ‘Daughter’ by Loudon Wainwright III
Casey and his mom danced to ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’
Super cute moment – all the guests made a circle around Colleen and Casey to sing the Adam Sandler hit “Grow Old with You’ from the Wedding Singer
Finishing off the night with the Beatles classic, ‘Blackbird’
