May 20, 2017 — the forecast was foreboding. Heavy wind, rain, and near freezing temperatures. While it’s true that most brides hope for peeks of sunshine, gentle breezes, and warm air, smart couples know that the weather on their wedding day is just one thread in the tapestry of their story — one they can choose to view with fondness and good humor instead of dread. As Jane told me shortly before her rehearsal dinner, “I’m just so happy to be getting married, we are going to have a fabulous time no matter what.”
And she did. We all did. Jane, Jeff, their families, and their wedding party, were so kind, helpful, flexible, and fun — everyone spent the day enjoying laughter and dabbing at happy tears, drinking in once-in-a-lifetime moments.
It doesn’t hurt that Jane and Jeff are so in love, so happy together, and have such a classic, elegant style, that they couldn’t help but look amazing. Enjoy this sneak peek into their perfect celebration, and check out the amazing list of vendors who made this day possible at the end.
