Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Jackie & Jon's Wedding
April 4, 2008

Another walk down memory lane brings me to one of my favorite weddings from last season- Jackie and Jon's gorgeous day at the incredible Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.
When I meet clients for the first time, I always ask them to tell me a few words to describe their wedding. I cannot tell you my delight when Jackie said the words, "rainbow sherbet." I was instantly taken back to my childhood favorite (my brothers would constantly make fun of me for ordering the same flavor each time we went out for ice cream- I did this for many, many years..) and the happy, summer vacation feeling the combination of varying shades of oranges and pinks always brings me. Of course, Jackie was semi-kidding- this was also going to be a completely elegant and romantic day in an exquisite space by the sea. The joyful colors set the mood for a day that was not only breathtakingly beautiful, but one that was incredibly happy and tons of fun.
Jackie and Jon were planning their wedding from Philadelphia and did an incredible job with all of the details. Jackie may just be the most organized person I have ever met in my life! It was such a blast getting to know these two and their families and friends. Jackie and Jon- sending warm California hugs to you in NYC!!
Enjoy the beautiful photos below by the wonderful Christine Marie.

{Jackie and Jon's flowers included the most luscious coral and pink peonies and tulips, the signature drinks of the evening included "Absolute Peach" and "Sink the Pink", the lighting by Rainbow Sound provided extra drama and impact in the room, the bridesmaids looked beautiful in their choice of sage Jim Helm dresses. }

{Jackie and Jon's stunning chuppah was later placed over their cake from Cake Divas, Jackie designed her own invitations and had them letter pressed by Mercurio Brothers, Casa Del Mar's incredible, giant clam shell filled with rose petals made the perfect centerpiece to the escort card table.}

{Perhaps my favorite memory of the night- Jackie and Jon channeling their inner Axl's- singing along with Dwight Kennedy to "Paradise City." How priceless is the reaction from their "fans!!"}

Congratulations
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.

I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
