Ok, so really the main thing I have to say about these love birds is that they have this one special thing that sounds so cliche but really is the key to a wonderful relationship and marriage... they make each other laugh! Every time I would turn around they were laughing together-- and not like a slight giggle, but a full out 'that is the funniest thing I have ever heard' kind of laughter. Most of the time I had no idea what the heck they were laughing about but I just love it. Uh oh-- maybe I had a booger on my face all day or something! Well, either way their laughter will keep them young and it really is such an admirable quality to see in a couple.
A little about this wedding--
Katie looked SOOO gorgeous in her dress from Chic bridal, I just love the details on the top... and how cool is the back? It has a beautifully designed piece that snaps over the zipper to hide it and fans up the back adding just the perfect amount of detail and flair. The perfect dress for this formal fall wedding. Katie & Jake's wedding was absolutely gorgeous at Barber Park and every little detail was impeccably thought out. The flowers including bouquets, boutonnieres, ceremony arch, and centerpieces by Hope Blooms were just breath taking. Day of coordination by Bliss made everything flow as smooth as butter and wanna know my 2 favorite things about this wedding? (other than this AMAZING couple of course!) That would be the FOOD and the CAKE. Haha, yes you know the way to this girl's heart.... and thats Greg Marsh cake. any flavor. But seriously- take a look at those sugar orchids! WHAT?! And the food was to die for as well--- which is appropriate since Jake is studied culinary arts and is a chef, so his standards are pretty high. I learned a fancy new word for green beans 'haricots' comes with a completely crazy french pronunciation that both Jake and the caterer (Open Table) rolled off their tongues as if it was obvious! Oh, and while I'm at throwin props out there all over the place... yours truly (Ampersand Studios) helped Katie & Jake's vision come to life in their complete wedding stationery suite that included save the dates, invitations, table numbers, menus, and programs.
It was pretty hard for me to narrow the photos down for a blog post- so we have a bit of a long one! Thanks Katie & Jake for choosing Ampersand, we love you guys and sincerely wish you the best. Enjoy!
