A couple who takes wedding photos in a grocery store? Now, that's a duo we want to be best friends with. After seeing Tory Rust and Micheal Barkman's big-day pictures, we were blown away — first, by what a gorgeous couple they are, and second, by how they managed to create a low-key yet intimate event that was 100% them.
The two University of Denver grads (who met in an economics class) invited 20 close friends to their ceremony, and then hosted a reception for 200 at an art gallery the following day. Kind of brilliant. And, surprising touches were everywhere, especially in Tory's DIY bouquet, made from her great-grandmother's jewelry collection. Ahead, their adorable photo shoot and reception photos, by From The Hip Photo — plus, Tory's personal tips for tying the knot in a memorable way.
