You guys. This weekend was amazeballs.
Yes, it rained. And it was cold. And dreary.
Jenny and Victor got married, and their wedding was just the most whimsical, wonderful occasion ever. They had this vision of smiling people, games being played everywhere and their guests having the. best. time. ever. And that was exactly how things went down.
This wedding. This wedding was one for the books, dude. When I got the phone call from my boo-thang Diana from Jubilee Events, a.k.a. one of the best event planners this side of the Sun, that she had JUST the perfect couple for me, she wasn’t kidding.
Jenny and Victor are my spirit animals! And their wedding reflected everything about them I immediately fell in love with when I met them.
One of the questions I ask my clients is to tell me about the style of their big day. A question Jenny answered with “Whimsical, carefree, an opportunity for adults to feel like kids again, joyous and accepting.” I read that, and my heart skipped a beat.
And their day was just that, all of the things. No one cared it was crappy out, that it rained or was way too cold for the first day of October. It didn’t matter. We all showed up at Priam Vineyards, walked into this tent, and were transported to a big top circus extravaganza! There were games, so many games, with prizes! A barbershop quartet, an adorable dog, cotton candy, so many desserts, popcorn, wine, dancing, laughter and so much love for these two, it was palpable.
But don’t think for one second it stopped there: We all came back the next morning for a fantastically delicious brunch…and to witness Jenny completely ruin her wedding dress by stomping grapes with her new hubby! Dude. Probably my favorite, most random moment at a wedding, ever.
A quick couple of big ol’ thank yous, first and foremost to my rad second shooters, Gina and Amanda; y’all killed it! SO many good shots. So many. Love you both long time. To the amazing, fun crew from Jubilee: D, Libby and Ashley. I LOVE working with you…you are on point and profesh, but laid-back and fun all wrapped in one adorable ball of awesomesauce. The catering staff, y’all rocked, and your food is amazing. So good. SO GOOD. To Priam Vineyards, the beautiful space, and kind people who work there. To Mike and co. from Buzz Media, it was pleasure working with ya! And to everyone else who helped make this wedding a really, REALLY fun one, y’all.
