One of the sweetest couples I have had the pleasure to work with is Jennie and Reade. They were married on December 1st, 2012. When we first started to work together, I was told the story of how Reade proposed to Jennie. Get ready for your jaw to drop....! Jennie came home and walked in the door, and who was there but THE John Besh, with a basket of food, ready to cook for Jennie & Reade. From there, Reade proposed, and the rest is history! They had their rehearsal dinner at Restaurant August, which is a great connection to the beginning of their wedding story.
Some great detail shots by Studio Tran of all of Jennie's beautiful things....
Get Polished did Jennie's flawless makeup.
I love this picture of Jennie and her dad.
Bella Blooms nailed it with her vibrant bouquet, as well as the bridesmaid's.
Jennie got ready at the Windsor Court. Their incredible Christmas tree provided
a great backdrop for some pictures before they took off for the ceremony.
The lovely ceremony was at Trinity Episcopal Church.....
....and after the party started at the always amazing Board of Trade.
Jennie & Reade choreograhed their first dance. It was equally cute & funny!
The cake was classically simple, and very delicious....made by Pure Cake.
Bella Blooms again, with striking centerpieces.
Studio Tran's above picture of the rings reminded me of a story from that day that I must relay!
In all of the excitement, everyone left in the limos to go to the ceremony , only to realize after arriving at Trinity Church (Uptown) that the rings were still at the Windsor Court (in the CBD!)....and this was 10 minutes before the ceremony. Luckily, Rachel from our team was setting up at the Board of Trade and was able to run to the hotel (in heels, naturally), get the rings, and run them to the church in the nick of time. Wedding coordinators to the rescue!
The end! Congratulations to Jennie & Reade.
It was a pleasure to help make your wedding everything you dreamed of!
Hope your new marriage is a wonderful as the two of you are.
