Today’s wedding is a real stunner!! Merica + Harrison’s Portland wedding is so full of love and also some of the most wonderfully personal details! We love the story of the box that M + H used as their ring box. We asked Merica some questions about her big day and her answers are absolutely beautiful. Merica + Harrison had their first dance as a married couple to this John Legend song!
At what point did you feel most the joyful on your wedding day :: Our most joyful part of our wedding day was during our first look. It was a moment where we got to get away from everyone and all the chaos that comes on a wedding day. At that moment, on the dock, we were able to take a moment for the both of us, hug, share our excitement and tell each other we love one another without any interruptions.
What was your favorite detail from your wedding :: One of my favorite details from my wedding was my cake- more specifically, the cake topper. I made the cake topper myself. I spent a lot of time and put a lot of effort/love into it to make sure they matched our wedding attire so they would look just like Harrison, our dog Nala, and I.
Tell us something interesting about your wedding that we need to know and share :: The box that held our wedding rings was painted by me for Harrison when I was 16 years old. While going through a box that had a ton of our memorabilia since 2001 I came across the box and figured it would be a great personalized ring box. I sprayed it with a gloss sealant to bring the color back to life and added the sponge center to hold our rings. Originally, I made that box to hold a ton of his favorite jelly beans.
Merica + Harrison, your wedding was GORGEOUS and we are so happy to have been a part of it! All our Love. xoxo
