This is one of those pinch-me-is-this-real weddings. The kind that leaves a warm, fuzzy feeling in your heart because the couple is just too lovely, the flowers by The Floral Lab arranged impeccably down to the very last petal, the hair by Megan Wayt so wildly pretty and all those gorgeous details by Sweet Emilia Jane crafted so effortlessly. What I’m trying to convey in an uber long-winded, way too many superlatives kind of way is that this wedding is freaking GORGEOUS and it has a whole lot of images by Nancy Neil Photography to prove it. See them here!
From Emilia Jane of Sweet Emilia Jane… Devon and Jake are about as sweet a couple as you’ll ever meet. As high school sweethearts, they have a love that is refreshing, genuine and easy. They are both super smart, charming and were such a delight to get to know. Right away, I knew that I was going to love designing and planning for them. With a venue like Firestone, you can’t really go wrong, but we wanted to make Devon and Jake’s wedding true to them with loads of personal touches and handcrafted decor. Since both have an affinity for the 1960s, the overall vibe of the event had a rustic, flower child kind of feel with giant orange, yellow and tie-dyed kraft paper pinwheels, wood table runners and seasonal flowers in vintage milk glass vases. There were many highlights throughout the evening, including the school bus ride for all the guests (reminiscent of Devon and Jake’s school days together), a hay wagon ride for the bride and bridesmaids to the ceremony spot, the phenomenal pies in lieu of wedding cake by Crust by Stephanie Jayne and the all-night dance party. Nancy Neil totally captured the whimsical, laid-back yet elegant day perfectly.
