From Allison of Studio 28 Photo… Jordan and Wes have a classic, clean style that is elegant but still maintains a modern, fresh, youthful feeling. Jordan, with the help of her mother, undertook many DIY projects that created an intimate personal feeling without being kitschy or overdone. One of the most impressive pieces were the large paper flowers Jordan hand-made, which served as the centerpieces for the ceremony and great accent pieces for the reception. They kept the overall color palette a soft cream and white that gave the reception a crisp and clean feel that blended perfectly with the details and natural charm of the Yacht Club. Handmade garland of white and cream fabric leaves was strung from the windows, bars and chairs, tying in the color element and the natural accents perfectly throughout the space.
The reception tables featured an array of white florals — both real and handmade paper flowers that added a variety in texture while creating a cohesive color scheme. Guests were delighted to find their seat using the handmade paper flowers that served as table cards for the reception. Upon arriving at the table, the guests were greeted with a sweet thank you card from the bride and groom, as well as caramels and various candies to add some flavor and fun! Debuting a W emblem for their new last name, this subtle detail added a personal touch that appeared on the cocktail napkins, thank you cards and menus, celebrating the union of these two amazing people!
