Summer Weddings
When Events by Jade encountered a beautiful stranger in a coffee shop, she was immediately struck by the woman's bohemian, eclectic, whimsical and romantic style. She began wondering, "If I were to design this stranger's wedding, what would it look like?" With The Vault full of bright, gorgeous photos from Rachel Elaine Photography, that question was answered.

From Events by Jade...The Texas girl in me finds something extraordinary about the combination of a crisp white barn in a setting of vibrant colors. The White Sparrow Barn shines on it’s own, so adding to this radiant space for such an enchanting event was easy. My intent was to create a lovely masterpiece that would bring into focus the beauty of the moment, and when you take a closer look you are in awe of every fine detail.

One day, not too long ago, I met a beautiful woman in a coffee shop. I would describe her style as bohemian and eclectic, with a touch of whimsical romance. We only spoke for about 2 minutes, a fleeting conversation, but she left a lasting impression. There was something very special about her that struck a chord inside my soul. Unbeknownst to her, in those two minutes she inspired me. If I were to create a wedding for her, it would be very similar to the pictures you see today. My goal was to design her a bohemian inspirited wedding with a fresh interpretation.

Rachel from Rachel Elaine Photography and I immediately agreed we wanted eye-catching hues to contrast with the white washed walls of The White Sparrow. Using a color palette of pinks, greens, oranges, and blues opened up a bright infusion of summer. R Love Floral Design used organic, natural flowers and foliage to embody this inspiration.

It was very important to me to fuse both the nature of the surroundings and the additional pieces into a cohesively effortless space. I used a tree on the property to hang a dream catcher seating chart, the vibrant green-grassed space that was made to be sat in, and a tree swing that was calling to be transformed into a cake stand. Clean, simple, native, yet elegant.

I fell in love with the idea of having a loaf of bread on the tables, representing “breaking bread” among friends and family. The word “bohemian” immediately makes me think of a more relaxed and informal sitting, and with that in mind we used a low table for the dessert displays all made by Amuse Bake Shop. I visualized friends and family informally surrounded around the table sharing stories of the bride and groom.

The true beauty in what I do is the friendships I form along the way. Each event is a way for me to take the traits that make my clients truly unique and extraordinary, and create a sitting that expresses all of those attributes for them to enjoy. I had the privilege of working with some of the best in the industry on this shoot. I hope you love these pictures as much as I do.
