Suzanne & Jordon
Q & A with the Bride:
1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
When we visited the gardens before the wedding, we spent over an hour exploring the many areas of the garden. We loved the field of lilies that served as the backdrop for the ceremony site. The ceremony site gazebo was grand and rustic with a cemented stone aisle and fit perfectly with our vision for a romantic, outdoor wedding. Our wedding was late in the summer, so we didn’t get the full effect of the spring blooms in the lily field, but it was a beautiful setting nonetheless
2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?
1) The vintage furniture pieces with the photo frame wall Jordon built: The vintage rental pieces and the photo wall backdrop really helped create the atmosphere for the reception and tied our other elements together with a common theme. They created a big impact at an affordable price and guests enjoyed the lounge seating area by the dance floor and posing for fun photos.
2) The whimsical table centerpieces: each with a different object and a fluttering butterfly in a mason jar. Jordon and I had fun together shopping for each of the items. My favorite of the objects was a white resin pig. I don’t know why; I just love him. He now resides on my mantle.
3) The men’s boutonnieres: Jordon helped pick out the items to go in them and put them together himself. He did a great job and really tried to make something we would both be happy with even though he nixed the peacock feathers I wanted to incorporate (the blue tiny flowers were a fair compromise). It meant a lot to me that he was involved with the details of the wedding so that it represented us both.
3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.
We’ve come to the conclusion that the best moment of the day was when the ceremony was over, and we were announced into the reception pavilion. That was the first time we saw all the projects and planning come together, and we knew we could relax and have some fun and libations. The sangria was especially sweet after all the stress of the day. (Although, a close second was when I saw my flowers were pink instead of peach. That was a bridezilla moment.)
