Morning SMP-ers! We’re starting off the day with a couple that was definitely not afraid to get their hands dirty…literally! Throughout their engagement, they grew and cared for the centerpiece and bouquet succulents and handcrafted all the little details for their homegrown wedding in Oregon. Their wedding is also a fantastic example of creating a celebration that truly reflects the couple and their tastes. Don’t like cake? No problem! Serve ice cream instead! Even a little rain couldn’t darken the infectious smiles of these two lovebirds! There is even more heart-stirring lovliness from We Heart Photography in the full gallery!
From We Heart Photography –
“Starting from the details, Drew did everything, and I mean EVERYTHING on her own. We were amazed that they were able to stick to a very small budget and turn out one of the most personal, chic weddings we have been to! First of all, Drew decided she wanted succulents to be a part of her floral arrangements for the day. So, she grew succulents for the past few months in preparation for her big day. The day before the wedding, she and her bridesmaids went on a walk through a field near her Bend home and picked the rest of the flowers used in the bouquets. This is incredible when you look at how perfect they are!! She put together the bouquets on her own, wrapped them in inexpensive twine, and picked a personalized button for each bridesmaid. She also made mini bouquets for the flower girls, the boutonnieres, and her arrangements.
All three of their rings were true vintage. Jay got her engagement ring from an antique store and it is from the 1920’s. It is breathtaking. For their wedding rings, they both are wearing their grandparents’ rings. So sweet! When Jay decided to wear his Grandfathers’ ring, he noticed an engraving on the inside. It said “Ann D. Jones”… Drew’s real name is Anne Drew and her new last name is Jones.
Neither Jay, nor Drew like cake very much. So, they decided to scoop ice cream instead! They had 5 different types of ice cream and cute little waffle cones. It was so fun to see something different and not to mention it tasted amazing.
Even though it rained on their wedding day and that changed a few plans, Drew + Jay’s day was truly magical. I now can honestly tell my brides that they CAN plan an amazing wedding on budget!”
