Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Jen & Jeff's wedding
October 15, 2008

I've been so suuuper excited to blog Jen & Jeff's gorgeous wedding photos ever since the insanely talented Jose Villa sent them my way. Jen & Jeff were planning all the way from Washington DC so despite much of our planning being done long distance, from the very first moment we talked we instantly clicked and the planning process did not feel quite so long distance at all. Jen was interested in having a wedding at the Firestone Crossroads Estate (one of my most favorite locations ever..) and I knew the moment that she flew out to see it, she would fall in love. Jen's vision of bold popping colors in the rustic barn setting evolved into the most fabulous eclectic-modern floral design, brought to life beautifully courtesy of Nico Designs. Using mismatched teapots, saucers, cups, glasses, jars, and silver, Nico brought in an incredible mix of colors and textures- romantic and soft roses and peonies, structured and exotic pods and protea, delicate and lacy maidenhair fern and hydrangea. It was truly like little pieces of art on each of the tabletops. Nico also incorporated fruit- oranges, apples, pears and juicy strawberries made unexpected appearances alongside the floral and guests were as delighted to munch on them as to enjoy their beauty in the setting. :)
Jen being the sweets lover that she is selected her favorite candies which we turned into an impressive candy buffet while the fabric letters we placed along the barn's ledge read "love is sweet." We lucked out with perfect weather and Jen and Jeff's ceremony under the canopy of the famous Firestone oak tree is still to this day one of my very favorites ever. It was performed by one of Jen's best friends and was written just for Jen and Jeff- I laughed, I cried, I texted my husband to tell him that I loved him. It was an absolutely incredible day! Thank you Jen and Jeff for allowing me to be part of something so special! Miss you tons!
























What a gorgeous wedding! I love the idea of using mismatched vases as centerpieces...

Wow gorgeous wedding! Well I just got engaged this week after my fiance bought me a diamond engagement ring from www.idonowidont.com and I have been seeing the trend of white frosting cupcakes in wedding photos recently and we're so doing that too for our wedding! Thanks!

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.
