You don’t get to pick the weather for your wedding.
On the coldest day so far this winter, Lauren and Jeremy got married. The temperature hovered around freezing and the wind howled with enthusiasm. This adorable couple went about getting married without giving this meteoric ambush a thought. They wanted to pose for pictures at the 360 Bridge at sunset – so we did. It was cold but they never let on and the pictures do not reflect their torment. I will admit my assistant and I had frozen fingers but we managed.
Lauren and Jeremy decided in advance that on their wedding day, they did not want to see each other prior to the ceremony. However, they did want a brief encounter. We set up a “No Peeking” session where they each stood on opposite sides of a column and were able to touch each other without visual contact. It lasted only a few moments but provided the assurance needed to get them to the ceremony on a high.
The entire night was lovely with elegant table linens and flowers provided by Stems, dramatic up lighting on the walls and music provided by the talented DJ – Josh Wilkinson with Penguin Entertainment, Inc. I especially liked how they customized a wedding theme graphic and utilized that consistent design element on all the wedding deliverables: invite, guest book, “Tips For Wedded Bliss” coasters, event program, menu sign, “Just Married” sign, and my favorite – “Ask About Our Signature Drink” sign.
And they danced… all night. Lauren dances for a living. Jeremy admitted he was not all that coordinated on the dance floor but he focused on sharing her passion and having fun. Turns out Jeremy really does have some good moves.
Congrats Lauren and Jeremy Holley – Happy Holleydays to you!
