Notes from the interns: family weddings

From intern Jess:My cousin’s fiancé Kate put a lot of thought and time into her nuptials. Their wedding was a family affair to be sure and a perfectly personalized Blue Bling theme. To start off their ceremony they played a photomontage video of baby photos and photos of them together. Being that they met in Christian pre-school there were plenty of photos that made us all laugh and cry. They included both of their mothers in the ceremony by having them light the candles that they would later use to light their unity candle. Joshua’s brother Jacob and cousin Kaylee announced the entrance of the bride with a handcrafted sign that said, “Josh, here comes your girl!” As the Bridal March started, Kate glided into the church wearing an elegant strapless sweetheart A-line gown with a corset back. They said “I Do” with traditional vows and sealed it with a tender kiss. 

We adjourned to the preschool house beside the church for cupcakes and punch before we sent the newlyweds off with a birdseed toss. The reception venue was just a short ride away. We were treated to beautiful fruit and ice sculptures along with an array of cocktail food and a bartender with a heavy hand. After some time, the venue director invited the guests into the dining room, where Kate and Josh carried their theme of Blue Bling. The tables were adorned with blue hydrangea centerpieces, napkins and gems scattered on the table. The DJ had everyone on the dance floor all night, keeping the celebration upbeat and energetic. We loved the personalized photo booth; my family and I definitely took advantage of that. Their round three-tier cake was simply decorated with blue and white and tasted delicious. Towards the end of the night the venue team rolled out an ice cream bar and a blue candy bar! We were able to fill our personalized mason jars up with tasty treats. The night ended with a group photo and a bittersweet farewell. Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Feldman, many years of love, laughter and happiness.
