Take it from this bride, a great wedding is one where the newlyweds can relax and have fun. I can only assume that was thanks in part to the perfect planning of Christina Leigh Events. As for the other parts? Like the classic florals and lace back gown? The French Bouquet and Claire Pettibone can take credit there. Check out ALL the reasons why this is one for the blogs in a gallery by Ely Fair Photography.

From the Bride... When Jody and I started talking about our wedding the only thing we were sure of was that we wanted it to be fun. Realizing that this was probably the only time that everyone we loved from all aspects of our lives would be with us in the same room, we were determined to enjoy our wedding. Things were also pretty hectic leading up to the wedding, we graduated law school, moved to Tulsa, adopted a puppy, took the bar exam, and found jobs. By the time our wedding came we were ready to celebrate and relax!

Our ceremony was simple, but incorporated things that were important to both of us. I had asked a close family friend to marry me long before I met Jody, so having him preform the ceremony was really special. Jody's brother went to juliard and is an amazing singer, so having him sing at the wedding was both sentimental and amazing. We also asked our pianist to play songs were special to each of us instead of traditional aisle music.

Our reception came together better than what I had dreamed up. The tables and chairs were dressed in the linens my grandmother made and the flowers by the French bouquet pulled the little details together. After seeing all the little details come together, there was nothing left to do but enjoy our being with our loved ones and dance the night away. During the last song, Jody picked me up and spun me around the dance floor. We were not ready for the night to end! The night was a total success because we were able to relax and truly enjoy our wedding."
