    Sherri and Jacob were married on the warmest early March date I can remember in the same church that her parents and grandparents were married in. Their wedding was the beginning of the spring wedding season for me and I can’t imagine a sweeter couple to have gotten things moving!

    Some of my favorite vendors were along for the day including:

    April with Bluebird Photography (see more of their wedding here)
    Matt Pine and the crew at Lifetime Video (see their trailer here)
    Travis with Be Creative Catering (one of my easiest recommendations on catering – great food, great customer service and super reasonable on the budget!)

    Sherri’s flowers included hydrangea, roses, lisianthus and freesia.

    Got a few more photos from Mandy that came from Steve Ziegelmeyer, a friend of hers and guest at the wedding. Definitely a very talented friend with a great eye for capturing the details!

    If I haven’t mentioned it before, I’m a sucker for papergoods. Nothing makes me happier than arriving at the reception site for setup and finding coordinated stationery. Mandy and Jon had their seating chart, table numbers, programs, seat backs… the works… all coordinated with this beautiful pink floral design. I think the choice in fonts is a super important detail and I think this mix of casual script and block fonts fit the ‘preppy chic’ theme perfectly. The seating chart was the very talented Kristen at Poeme. And the coordinating table numbers, chair backs, etc. were done by Mandy and John’s planner, Kristen of Tres Chic.

    These martini glasses with single cymbidium orchids and rose petals were on the cocktail tables. They are a simple classic way to add something extra to those often overlooked 30″ cocktail tables!
    There’s something kind of magical about this picture of the flower girl watching the party down below. I love this next photo… showing off the “bracelet” style wrist corsage – simple, classic and age-appropriate (no mini-roses here!). Something about the composition in this photo screams product ad to me. Can’t you just see it in a magazine as an ad for a piece of jewelry or something?!

    Heather and Joe pulled off a simply stunning affair. And I mean, they pulled if off! They are both attorneys living in and planning from New York City. Since I met Heather last year they have figured out and overcome some major hurdles including passing the bar exam, being unemployed and finding work, health issues, the death of close family members, etc. etc. Despite all of this they never waivered on their attention to detail and their desire to create a beautiful event for those family and friends lucky enough to be in attendance. I’ll have to do a seperate post sometime on all her DIY projects!!

    The amazing photos are courtesy of Steph Carson - Talk about someone who has a passion for what they do and the talent to back it up! I really admire the dedication she shows to her work and her clients and am continuously amazed and the gorgeousness she creates. Heather and Joe wanted a very ‘Old Hollywood – vintage glam’ affair and the photos really emphasize that vibe.

    On to the details… Heather incorporate bright bold green flowers to pop against her black and gold color palette. Her bouquet is made up of calla lilies, hypericum berries and cymbidium orchids wrapped with ribbon and pins to match the detailing on her dress.

    Along with Steph, the dream team of vendors included:
    venue: Cincinnati Club (both ceremony and reception)
    videographer: Lifetime Video (check out their pre-trailer here!)
    makeup: Nancy with Brideface
    day of coordinator: Kristen with Tres Chic
    And despite having nothing to do with the flowers, some serious eye-candy for your viewing pleasure :)

    This wedding is particularly special to me. Jason was the Best Man in my own wedding and Olivia has quickly become a very dear friend. It’s been a long time since I boo-hooed so hard at a wedding but these two really have something special. Thanks, guys, it’s been such an honor to be included in your wedding day.

    On to the details…

    Amazing photos provided by super-fun, super-talented Amanda Egan. Ceremony held at St. Agnes Church in Ft. Wright and the reception at The Gardens of Park Hills.

    Olivia wanted bright citrus colors with modern textural elements. Included in her bouquet are hydrangea, Supergreen roses, parrot tulips, gloriosa lilies, hypericum berries, pin-cushion protea, hypericum berries, craspedia and fern curls.
    The bridesmaids carried mono-chromatic green bouquets to compliment their pewter gray dresses. Their bouquets were made up of green hydrangea, Supergreen roses, cymbidium orchids, hypericum berries and loops of lily grass.
    I get asked all the time about alternatives to boutonnieres. While I love incorporating unusual textural elements for the guys, I’m also a big fan of a classic pocket square and have no problem recommending this look to my brides. Look closely, my handsome hubby’s in this picture :)

    The green flowers carried over to the reception details. The cake was made by Olivia’s aunt and was brought up from Lexington. I would’ve been holding my breath the entire drive!!

    One of my favorite vendors to recommend is Brideface. I love how excited my brides are after their trial and finally realizing why I so enthusiastically recommend Nancy and her crew. Part of my wedding gift was Olivia’s makeup… that’s how much I am a fan of Brideface. Mollie, one of the lead artists, did Olivia’s makeup. I just knew that in the hands of Brideface she’d look and feel great all night long. As a guest at this wedding… I can vouch that she did!

    And a few more because the eye candy is too great to pass up! Jason and Olivia went to Union Terminal for a few photos before the wedding. I know it was a second choice because of the uncooperative weather, but what amazing shots!
    This one makes me well up a little… I see them look at each other like this all the time.
    Have you seen a bride more intent on getting down the aisle to get her man?! Love this one, too :)
