I cannot begin to tell you what a joy it was to plan Jenna + Greg's wedding.
With the bride + groom busy in medical school, it was Jenna's mother Kristine whom I had the pleasure of working with. This is one exceptional woman. Classy, sassy, smart and knows what she wants!
When it came to the wedding, Kristine + Jenna had a few priorities....a meaningful ceremony, over-the-top floral, an abundance of food and a super fun party. They were definitely speaking my language!!
The ceremony, at St. Mary's Cathedral, was officiated by Archbishop Schwietz, a close family friend who had performed every family sacrament for the past ten years.
A 12 person choir along with strings and a trumpet fanfare set the tone for the beautiful ceremony and the full Catholic mass was everything the couple was hoping for.
The floral was beyond exceptional. From adorned pillars and railings at the club, tables overflowing with fluffy peonies and a dripping chandelier, no detail was overlooked.
Guests were treated to tons of passed appetizers and a five course meal which ended with digestivi carts.
The toasts had everyone in tears and really made clear what a pedestal Jenna's five siblings held her on. And Uncle Lou, a 90 year old relative serenaded the couple and celebrated his 67 wedding anniversary the next day.
With a dream team of vendors, the sweetest clients and a perfect sunset, this wedding was certainly one for the books.
