A Family Tree!


I love displaying family photographs for a special vignette tucked in for that added detail. 

Here, at Carissa and Lee's wedding, we included black and white photos of both  parents, grandparents,   and mixed in adorable childhood photographs of them!  
It was a wonderful tribute to them as well as a really pretty presentation.
We have lots of trees at the Jones Victorian Estate!!

Thank you to Gina and Ryan Photography for the photo!

What About the Bridesmaid's Dresses?

So, you have found your gown and now you are ready to start the entertaining what the Bridesmaid's will be wearing. 
Do you have a  traditional style?
Do you have a modern flair?
Do you like lots of color? 

There are a lot of questions, but the main question is what do you love? Not like, love?
Anything goes! AND if you really love it, then it REALLY goes!!

Here, Annemarie decided on specific colors for each Bridesmaid. A lot of thought went into how each gown would look on each lady. She chose long dresses for a more formal look.

Here, Kallie went with a floral gown! And, the maid of honor's dress was floor length to set her apart! Fun and Sassy!
Carissa decided on short dresses with a mix of color. The jewel tones were gorgeous! The grey sash along with their shoes were the accent of the day!

Brianna loved the mix of the pink and the mauve. With all matching shoes, the look was playful yet elegant.

Brandi dressed all her ladies in ivory to go with her vintage design. 

Rachell loved yellow so it was her first choice on Bridesmaid's dresses. 

Sara loved the tiffany touch! Her ladies were dressed in a short version for a warm day!
Kristen, with her Hallowedding theme, let her ladies decide on their own dresses.

Whatever you choose, remember, if you love it... it will be perfect!

Luggage Accents!

Have you moved and traveling back for your wedding? 
Do you love to travel?
Has your engagement been a traveling connection?
Do you just love old luggage?
Whatever the reason, luggage is a multi-faceted accent piece. 
The important thing is that if you love it, let's figure out the best design for you!

Below, I stacked old crates with the luggage for Jessica and Adam's wedding. 
Here Ashley and James added luggage to a crate for a special welcome at the entrance to the wedding. "From This Day Forward" was the perfect sign to add to this overall design and perfect for the setting. 
Ashley and Ryan used their luggage as a special photo display! Filled with beautiful baby's breath, the photos are more romantic, fun and have a real pop!!
Hillary and Ryan use their luggage at the guest book table for a perfect container for all her special finds! 

These are just  a few ways we have incorporated luggage in the wedding design!
 If you love them, then lets start playing!!

Brilliant Yellow with Black at the Jones Victorian Estate

The brilliant pop of yellow is amazing for Stacy teamed with our Ralph Lauren Black floral linens!
See how beautiful the combination was!
A special and big thank you to Kim and Jeray Photography!

Centerpieces were a wow factor!

We added black candelabras with crystals and the table design was complete! Thank you to Flower Allie of Fullerton for an amazing job with the flowers.

Seating for the wedding with yellow accents with crystals hung from our shepherd's hooks!

And the wedding arch... covered in orchids, roses,  gerbras with black crystals  for that breathtaking backdrop.

The Bride and Groom's sweetheart table with a white candelabra!

And the three flower girls taking a moment on our swing...

The gorgeous Stacy!
