This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Jasmine and Kenneth, held at St. Dominic’s Church and Stern Grove Park in San Francisco, CA. The couple met six years prior at the Stern Grove Concert Festival, so they chose the same spot for their wedding reception.
The big day reflected the groom’s Southern roots and the bride’s Chinese-Filipino heritage. The cover of their wedding program read, “So you’re going to sit through a Catholic Filipino-Chinese Southern wedding.”
They had Filipino phrases incorporated into the wedding décor and favor tags, traditional Filipino “barongs” for the groomsmen, Chinese lion dancers, a New Orleans-style jazz band and a delicious Filipino-Southern menu that included sweet tea, ‘lechon’ whole roasted pig and purple yam ice cream.
The bride DIYed a lot of the decorations herself. She designed her infographic-style save the date cards, a friend designed her wedding invitation and she also used a lot of stylish stationery from Tiny Prints, Shutterfly and Wedding Paper Divas. Menus, escort cards, place cards, rehearsal dinner invitations and ceremony programs are from Wedding Paper Divas, ceremony bubble wands are wrapped with Tiny Prints address labels, bridesmaid gifts and welcome guest bags also used Tiny Prints and Wedding Paper Divas stationery.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Elizabeth and Ross, held at a horse farm in Dallas, PA. The day was absolutely beautiful and better than they could have ever imagined, minus the 30 mph winds and the 50 temps in the month of May. They were able to get up close and personal with the horses on the property while taking pictures. So close in fact that one started to eat the bride’s bouquet! They wanted to make their dog part of their special day, so in lieu of a traditional pillow, they had the ring bearer carry a stuffed animal replica of their German Shorthaired Pointer with the rings tied to the collar. The couple is all about tradition so they used lace from the bride’s mother’s wedding gown to wrap her bouquet, and lace from her bridesmaids’ dresses to wrap her girls’ bouquets.
This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Christie and Will, held at The Love Boat House in Hattera, NC. The Love Boat is an estate house right on the water. The ceremony took place down a small pebbled path from the reception area, specialty refreshing cocktails offered along the way. The tented reception was on the vast back lawn of the estate, overlooking the calm waters of the sound.
Imported French lace tabletops, history books on love strategically placed throughout, each table displayed a magnificent array of beauty and uniqueness. The bohemian theme and feel continued to the head table with beach drift wood hearts, old vintage chests overflowing with flowers, napkins put together with torn fibers saying Love of a Lifetime, old keys, and vintage french teacups. This mix of vintage and bohemian made you feel like you could just curl up in a corner with a cup of tea and book off of one of the tables, hanging out all night.
