A Picture Perfect Love Story with @elizabeth_wisdom and @Denislafargue

For more photos from Elizabeth and Denis’s wedding as it unfolds, follow @elizabeth_wisdom and @denislafargue on Instagram.

What started with small conversations through Instagram photo comments, became a fairy-tale love story for Elizabeth Wisdom (@elizabeth_wisdom) and Denis Lafargue (@denislafargue). After months of texting and eventually speaking on the phone, Elizabeth finally drove from Mineola, Texas to visit Denis in New Orleans, Louisiana. “I had seven hours to think about the fact that I was about to stay with the family of a man I had never met in person,” Elizabeth recalls of the nerve-wracking trip. But all fear vanished when they finally met. “Within moments of being together we both secretly knew that we were meant to be together,” Denis remembers, and in less than a year he proposed to the woman of his dreams. Denis printed out Instagram pictures from the trips to visit each other and formed a trail on the floor. “The trail of photos led me to the barn where Denis was standing with his guitar. He sang the most beautiful song he had written for this occasion and got down on one knee to propose to me,” Elizabeth recalls the romantic moment.

The couple now counts down the days to October 18 when they will finally tie the knot—and as they go they’re excited to continue sharing their story with the community. “There will be lots of moments shared on Instagram from the wedding day,” Elizabeth says. “I’m thankful for the people who have followed our relationship from the very beginning up to this point.”

An Instagram Wedding

In mid-August, Instagrammers @kimathomas and @colerise photographed a wedding at San Francisco City Hall with just iPhones and Instagram. The couple — @jonathanbuckley and @blynnsfbay’s — met and fell in love in SF, and they wanted a wedding day full of the things that make The City so wonderful, including a number of local start up influences. (Betabrand provided the bride’s dress; Uber supplied the transportation).

Altogether, Kim and Cole took over 550 photos of the event, and edited them all in Instagram, the majority with the Rise filter, a few with Amaro, and 2-3 with Hudson and Valencia. Kim carried an iPhone 4s, a backup iPhone 4, a charger, an SLR Mount and a 50mm f1.4, a Glif Plus and an Olloclip. To see more photos of the event, check out Kim’s blog and her Instagram photos.
