I loved working with Jenney & Joe for their wedding, this is such a cool grounded couple who truly belong together and it shows in all of their photos. The day was so beautiful, it really reminded me of my wedding. I had such a blast with you guys, thanks for letting me be a part of your day! Here are a few of my favorites!
WHERE IS YOUR WEDDING/RECEPTIONS AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS LOCATION?
Belmont Country Club for bother Ceremony & Reception. We choose this place because of its rustic, yet elegant beauty and charm.
WHAT WAS YOUR THEME OR STYLE AND WHY?
Romantic, whimsical, classic
WHERE DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR DRESS AND WHAT LEAD YOU TO THE ONE YOU CHOSE?
I went dress shopping with one of my close friends who is also getting married a few weeks before me, and found a shop that offers dresses in all sizes called “Curvy Girls Bridal”. I wanted sometime lacey, romantic, classy yet not too conservative. We picked out about 10 dresses, and the first dress I tried on was the one I ended up purchasing. I loved the swiss tulle and hand-beading.
DESCRIBE YOUR SHOES AND WHY YOU WENT WITH THEM?
I wasn’t sure what type of shoe to go with – similar to the girls (gold/champagne), or pop of blue, or classic white. I went looking for other shoes, when i found this pair of white heels, with a flower on the heels with beading that similar to beading on my dress. As soon as I saw them and tried them on, I knew they were the ones.
WHERE THERE ANY OTHER PIECES OF JEWELRY/ACCESSORIES FOR YOU, YOUR GROOM, BRIDESMAIDS OR GROOMSMEN THAT YOU DECIDED TO INCORPORATE?
I will be wearing the pearls that my mom gave me on 18th birthday. I bought the bridesmaids these beautiful pearl and gold necklaces and pearl earrings.
WHO IS DOING YOUR HAIR & MAKEUP AND WHAT IS THE LOOK YOU ARE GOING FOR?
My friend Danielle, who is a hair stylist, will be doing my hair and makeup. I’m going for a romantic look with the hair (long loose curls half-up), and more dramatic with the make-up with smoky eyes.
DID YOU HAVE ANY WEDDING FAVORS AND WHY DID YOU SELECT THEM?
Yes, we’ll be donating to the American Cancer Society, and having candy in bright colored tulle.
WHO DID YOUR FLOWERS AND WHAT WAS THE LOOK THAT YOU WANTED WITH THEM?
Joe’s mom will be creating the bouquets (ivory roses), and centerpieces (pink/peach roses)…we wanted a classic, yet elegant look and feel.
TELL ME ABOUT YOUR CAKE, WHO CREATED IT AND WHAT DID YOU DO TO MAKE IT UNIQUE
We chose a local bakery that came highly recommended. We picked out a simple, yet elegant cake in wedding colors (champagne/ivory/pink as pop of color) with fresh flowers.
WHAT DID YOU DO FOR FOOD & DRINK AND WHY?
We went with an all inclusive package because it was a lot of food / open bar, with one easy payment
WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO BE GO ON THE HONEYMOON & WHY?
Paris because we’ve always wanted to go together, and it’s such a romantic, beautiful city.
Joe is a lot of things: sincere, genuine, talented, driven, fun, silly, smart, lovable, patient, kind – the list goes on and on. But, above all, he is my best-friend. We get each other – I mean, he understands me better than anyone else I know, and I him. He completes me (yes I just misquoted from the movie “Jerry McGuire”…but, it’s true).
Jenney is the most supportive person I know, and she makes me feel like I can accomplish anything. She has a big-heart and always puts others’ needs first. I also love how she laughs at her own jokes, even when they’re not funny – plus, she’s a good kisser!
