It goes without saying that I love weddings. I’ve been gushing about them for years now on the pages of SMP, but they truly never get old to me. Even though I am knee deep in them daily, the way a couple looks at each other still sends a flutter through me I just can’t shake. Take this couple for instane, who love each other so much it shows in every gorgeous picture snapped up by Jeremy & Kristin. It’s reason number 1,305 that I will never tire of swooning over nuptials, and you can see why here.
From Jeremy & Kristin… JoJo and Gio’s wedding was the epitome of elegance and simple beauty. Early in the planning process JoJo wanted her theme to be vintage elegance. While there were aspects to her day that were vintage, there were also details and florals that made the wedding appear more graceful and exquisite. A unique aspect to their wedding was the range of culture. JoJo is half Indian and half Chinese and it was very important for her to reflect her heritage and allow her guests to experience a multi-ethnic wedding. One way JoJo accomplished this was by hiring Bollywood Dance Instructors. These two girls did a fabulous dance routine as a performance and then JoJo invited all of the wedding guests to join her on the dance floor to learn some simple Bollywood moves. This was a first for Gio and many of the guests. JoJo’s reception venue, the Ashton Depot, was a perfect setting for their immaculate reception. The grandeur of the chandeliers and vaulted ceilings were the perfect ascetic for this wedding. JoJo even mentioned the most important aspect of her wedding were her flowers, and it shows. Her bouquets and centerpieces were gorgeous and added a light soft color to the day. Jen Rios with Jen Rios Design helped JoJo with coordination and styling and played an integral part in making the wedding day the success that it was!
