Google+ Southern Wedding of the Week: Jessica + Jason, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Thank you so much for sharing these amazing images with us, Jeff!  Check out more on Jeff Greenough’s {BLOG}.

What was the design inspiration for your wedding?  The linens – everything started with the green striped linen we had on the cocktail tables.  We wanted lots of texture and a clean, beautiful look.

Describe your wedding flowers:  We wanted a mixture of pink, green, orange, and champagne colored, lush lilies and roses. We also included beautiful green orchids.  The cocktail tables hadorchid arrangements with bamboo around the outside of the container – everyone loved them!
Describe your wedding cake:  It was a delicious, chocolate almond marble, with two tone icing and fresh flowers.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding?  I didn’t feel like I had to overcome anything because our wedding planners made sure everything ran smoothly.  Weddings By Michelle was able to take any task that seemed monumental to us and make it so simple.  From the custom made draperies for the deck, to the lighting, to even building a sea glass display with our favors! They were a part of everything.
Scariest moment?  Almost missing our flight the next morning to Little Cayman Islands!  I was a little worried when the cab picked us up at 6:15 am and our flight left at 7:00 am.  Fortunately, we were able to get to our final destination.
Funniest moment?  When my friend Brandon started break dancing and doing the worm.
The most unexpected event on our wedding day was:  During the reception, we lost power for a minute. That’s downside to being at a house, I guess! However, it was back up and running by the time everyone had filled their glasses.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Romantic, Magical, Exquisite

What advice would you give to someone planning their wedding?  If I could suggest anything to a couple getting married, it would be to find a wedding planner you connect with and who will be able to interpret your vision for your wedding day.
What’s next for you as a couple? We are looking forward to building a family in the future.For right now though, we are just enjoying each other.  Jason is looking forward to growing his business and I’m excited about helping him.  We know what we would like out of life and for our future, but we are in no rush.  It’s nice just enjoying today and everything we already share.

Congratulations to Jessica + Jason!  Check back shortly for Part II of our double header…

    The wedding was something out of a FairyTale!!! From the ceremony, to Jessica’s dress, to the reception. Thankfully all captured in amazing photos. I have been apart of many weddding, and I have never seen a couple enjoying themselves as much as Jess and Jason. Not only did they look relaxed, but they couldn’t take their eyes off each other…… could see how much the two of them love each other. The best of luck to the two of them.
