A few months ago, Jennifer contacted us about her upcoming wedding. She was very organized and had a good idea of how her wedding day would go. Since she has such a great support group of family and friends willing to help, we suggested month of coordinating instead of full planning services.
Jennifer's vision for the decor was vintage elegance, accented with purples. She collected unique broaches from women closest to her, and we put together a beautiful bridal broach bouquet! After the ceremony, it made the perfect focal point on the sweetheart table.
Jennifer and her new hubby, Jonathan, selected the Historic St. Andrews Church for their traditional, early afternoon ceremony. The woodwork inside the church was stunning and very little decor was needed to make their day feel special!
Jennifer and Jonathan's closest friends and family watched as the wedding party and our loving couple made their way to the alter. The beautiful sounds of the church organ filled the air as we all sat and witnessed the miraculous moment that has become the beginning a life long love story!
The reception to follow, was just as impressive as the ceremony! The couple selected to be the first wedding celebration at in the new venue space at 131 by Trigo in downtown Panama City. The worn brick walls, huge chandeliers, and towering ceilings were a perfect complement to this couple's decor style!
Guests were welcomed as they entered the reception, to suggest date night ideas, sign the guest book, or take in the sweet smells of the cookies & creme flavored semi naked bride's cake, or the groom's cookie cake.
Elegant vintage decor rentals mixed the stunning lavender flower arrangements from Hallmark Flower Shoppe set this wedding celebration over the top!
Since their celebration was mid-afternoon, Jennifer and Jonathan selected to have a great variety of heavy hors d'oeuvres prepared for their guests. Trigo's Cafe kept deliciously fresh trays of food stocked throughout the event! The staff was polite and ready to help anyone in need.
Guests were able to relax and celebrate with the sound of local musician, Donnie Sundal, before heading over to enjoy the photo booth!
The photo booth was a huge hit with guests and the bride!
Jennifer and Jonathan incorporated some extra fun moments into their special day too, like the shoe game and a fun paper airplane sendoff!
It's always such a blessing when couples invite us to be a part of something so special in their lives! No wedding goes off without some hiccup and it's such a good feeling to be there to intercept any stressing situations, so their day can feel as miraculous as it truly should! It's an extra blessing when the couple is as fun to work with as Jennifer was!
