New Low Brewing Company: The First New Low

We now pause in our regularly scheduled wedding coverage to bring you a summary of the first homebrewing attempt by the New Low Brewing Company, co-founded by Scott Heines and Emma Christensen:

Let's Get Married! Museum of Science Entourage

I think Scott and I both forgot that there would actually know...people? In the museum? When we were all getting there? We made a scene.

Still. Arriving at the museum was kind of awesome:

A tender moment with my momma, taking in the view over the Charles River as we walked into the room.
Work was already well under way getting everything set up!
A quick consultation with my mom making sure the felt flower arrangements were just right.
Hello, Sister Marilyn! She's a friend of my parents from when they were all teachers together at a catholic school in Portland, Oregon. She and another sister, Sister Rosie, did all the lovely napkin rings.
And look! My two awesomest buddies from college, Ruthie and Camilla! They hung out with me all day - cracking jokes, force-feeding me delicious pastries, and handing me tissues as needed.
Wait, who's that on the phone?
This guy! I like this guy!
Yeah, this guy for reals! I'm totally going to marry this guy (his name is Scott) in about two hours!
More awww....!!!!
Wait, this doesn't bode well....

Let's Get Married! Getting Ready

Whew! As many people warned us it would be, the wedding was a complete whirlwind! A lovely, fantastic, emotion-filled whirlwind. It's been really fun to go back through all the pictures and relive the moments that seemed to slip by so quickly.

(Click on any of these pictures to see them larger!)

The morning of the wedding, I headed over to the Taylor House, a bed-and-breakfast in Jamaica Plain where my family was staying.
My lovely aunt took charge of my hair. She was a hair stylist in another life, and it was special to me to have her be the one to do my hair. The original idea was a simple French twist, but Char really went to town!
Here's Char (on the left) and my mom Joyce (on the right) having a quick consult about the 'do.

Me, attempting to sip my mimosa through layers of hair!
Char and her mighty can of hairspray, making triple sure my hair wasn't going anywhere for a while. It didn't.
A moment with Dad.
Mom, pinning felt flowers in my hair.
With jewelery and make-up!
A last minute fit of nerves once I saw myself in the wedding dress (and boob check, apparently).

Meanwhile, across town...
Scott putting on his tie.
Scott and Troy (and Jana, the photographer!) waiting for the bus to the Museum of Science!

And we're off!
