Yellow was Stacy and Joe's accent color...

It's a beautiful day at the Jones Victorian Estate! Kim and Jeray sent over a few more pictures from the photo shoot with Stacy and Joe! It was just us, no guests, no children and no staff! They had an opportunity to just enjoy the environment and each other!

Stacy's bouquet was a delightful mix of ivories and yellows with a few jewels thrown in for good measure!

"There's no place like the Jones, there's no place like the Jones" they murmured, as
they were surrounded by the breathtakingly gorgeous, wild mustard plants. 

What's your color? What do you want? Let me help you find it!

I just received an email with lots and lots and lots of photographs from Erika and Michael Hauser's wedding. AND they are amazing! Brandi of BrandiBarrPhotography captured their joy and fun while highlighting the elegance and beauty of their day. Join me...


 Somehow I loaded these backwards.... Here's our famous rose petals exit!!! The end has to be a joyous affair to match the day. Don't forget this detail!
 They danced under the lights and had a ball. We added colorful Chinese lanterns for an added accent.
 Here, we had a group shot! A perfect choice for their album!! Squeeze in everyone and look here!!!
Erika and Michael took private moment on the back bridge with the waterfall flowing underneath!
 Is this the cutest picture EVER? I love, love, love it!! They were just announced and we were all cheering and clapping in celebration.
 Erika and Michael at the gorgeous Arch and perfect backdrop for their ceremony. Father Ara is behind them. He is  short but his ceremonies pack a big punch of love, honor and commitment!

 The vows are next! Father Ara has the good ones!!

A beautiful backdrop for Erika's lovely gown and beautiful flowers. Can you see the light hue of blush and the delicate jewels? A perfect gown for Erika!

Fishing at the Jones Victorian Estate

Andy and Megan were married this weekend with a new and fun twist! Megan surprised Andy by adding  a fishing theme to her wedding planning. The special touches were noticed by all and especially by Andy! He loved it! 
Check them out below.

 The Bride's grandfather brought a fishing pole that we sat on a rock next to the lagoon. It was the perfect prop for the day!  It was her grandfather that made all the fish out of wood. Megan, her mother and Maid of Honor painted them and we anquored them down with one pound weights on fishing line. The fish looked like they were swimming in the current of the falls! 

Look at all the fish!  Green fish, blue fish, yellow fish, grey fish!!  There were eighteen fish in all including bottom dwellers and sharks that swam that day!!

Megan and her Mother, Julie, found this great  fish vase for the candy station! They included the candy fish and with the rest of the treats!! What a great find!

For more fun, Megan found a fishing Bride catching a Groom for her cake topper! 

Their special touches reflected their love of the outdoors. And, where else to express that than the Jones Victorian Estate! 
Megan was mindful at keeping the elegance of her wedding while including their personality and it worked perfectly.
 I can hardly wait for the pictures from the photographer!
Congratulations Megan and Andy!
