Oh I am thrilled to share today’s second wedding with you! Beautiful sun flowers and the most gorgeous details! The lovely Nancy Liu Chin of Nancy Liu Chin Designs sent us today’s wedding, Nancy created the most beautiful floral arrangements for the event!
Jennifer’s favourite hobby is cooking, while JC counts his number one hobby as eating! The wedding was filled with special touches that reflected the couple’s love of good food! The floral arrangements contained fresh herbs.
During cocktail hour, Jennifer and James had a “marketplace” set up for guests to “shop” in. Guests could choose from recipe boxes, fresh sunflowers, flip flops and fresh fruit.
Jennifer and James asked guests to contribute a recipe for a good marriage.
Guests were given favor boxes filled with cards featuring Jennifer’s favourite recipes and a muslin sack of thyme, her favourite herb. The top lid of the kraft colored favor box was rubber stamped with “Good Cookin’ with Jenny and JC”.
The reception, catered by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering featured a Fromage Station (Jennifer’s favourite food) and also a Popcorn Station (James’ favourite food). Comfy outdoor seating areas were st up with Jenny’s favourite cook books placed on the coffee tables. Stella Pastry Cafe provided their famous Sacripantina cake for the couple to cut.
At the end of the night, guests were offered a late night snack which involved Jenny and JC’s favorite… In-n-Out burgers and Boylan’s Soda!
A big congratulations to Jennifer & James on their marriage and a big thank you to Nancy Liu Chin of Nancy Liu Chin Designs for sharing this beautiful wedding with us today!
It’s a bumper wedding Wednesday with two beautiful weddings for you today! They’re both full of colour and sunshine and perfect for coming into Australia’s spring season!
The first wedding is the wedding of Tiara and Robby who married in Ellerslie, Georgia on Robby’s parent’s lake at Ellerslie Lodge. One week before the wedding, the couple adopted a puppy (pictured above) who was their ring bearer on the wedding day.
Here’s how Tiara described their meeting:
“I (the bride) grew up in California but have always wanted to try living somewhere else. So, back in October of 2006 I packed up my car and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to live near a friend from high school with no job and housing for only a month. At the same time Robby (the groom) who had been living in Georgia for three years decided to move back to his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, also without any job prospects. We arrived in Fort Lauderdale within a week of each other and met three weeks later on November 6th at a Bible Study.
Robby had just returned from a trip to Haiti where he’d caught Dengue fever, and had only stopped by because the guy who ran the Bible Study went to high school with his sister. Robby was only in the door a moment when our mutual friend brought him over to meet me. I thought Robby was uncomfortable when we met, but he told me later that after he left the Bible Study he went to a friend’s house and told his buddies that he had just met the woman he was going to marry. A month and a half later (January 31st) he proposed and we were married on June 6th, the 7-month anniversary of the day we met!”
Tiara walked down the aisle to one of Robby’s favourite songs “Love and some verses” by Iron & Wine, while her bridesmaids preceded her with “Be Thou My Vision” by Pedro The Lion.
It was important for the couple to honour their family traditions, so they wed under a chuppah, Robby broke a glass at the end of the ceremony and they did the traditional chair lift dance during the reception! Tiara made a lot of the wedding decor herself including the chuppah, wedding invitations, programs and even hand painted little boxes for the bridesmaids containing their jewellery for the wedding day.
The white, aqua and yellow cake was made by Columbus Corner Bakery.
Tiara and Robby danced their first dance to “I will hold you in my arms” by Ray LaMontagne.
Congratulations Tiara and Robby on your love filled wedding day and marriage! Thank you to Daniel Lateulade for sharing the wedding with us today!
A quick little announcement before we get into today’s weddings!
The lovely team at Highlight Films have chosen the winner of the $1300 loveshoot!
The winner is Brooke!
I rarely like ‘traditional’ wedding videos. When fiancé and I saw a highlight films clip – love happened. We’re interesting people and want a clip that captures that. We’ve dabbled in filming our scooting adventures, and even bought helmet cameras. But – we are participants, not producers. Share our ‘Vespa love story’.
Congratulations Brooke and thank you to all of our entrants!
