The Kiss... Seal the Deal!

I was reviewing all the amazing photographs from the past weddings and thought...
The Kiss! 
It seals the deal and the party begins. 
What a lovely way to start a new life together!











I just love our weddings!

Picket Fences... What a Backdrop!

Hi!
What is it about a picket fence that is so charming?
The history?
The playfulness?
The lightness?
Whatever it is, I love them. Ours is extra special with a heart gate! Here at the Jones Victorian Estate, it's just one of the many backdrops that a photographers can indulge in! 
Check these out!!


Katie and her new hubby! 


This photographer loved the simplicity of the green!

Erica added a wreath and a vintage tin to the gate for her wedding!

Hmmm, cute?


I love this... Channtel and Aron!

Here the guys are impromptu!


Brandi's group! We needed a backdrop large enough and presto! Perfect!


 Sara and Ryan enjoy a secret moment!

Old Beautiful Quilts... They are not just for warmth anymore!

Hi!
Are you planning a wedding with a homegrown or vintage design theme? 
Have you given it any thought? 
If you are or have, I have a suggestion for you. 
Quilts!
In my mind, it conjures up rich texture, color with dimension, love that's real  and warmth of history all  mixed together into a beautiful package.
So, how would you use these precious love gifts?
Here are a few....

A table overlay!


A special linen for the sweets or cake table!


They may be used for those rumbustious flower girls and ring bearers!


                 I added a few snacks and toys to the quilt and these children were in heaven!

A welcome quilt that proudly displays the love for the day!


                                    Here, I mixed textures with the table linens and it was a big hit!


Quilts are a lovely way to add color and texture to the overall theme without a huge expense. 
They can be a special wall hanging behind the cake table or how about an overlay for the gift table or bridal table! 




Here, the guests signed quilt squares instead of a guest book! So, whether the quilts are for decoration or practical usage, they are a wonderful element to add to any wedding.

Let's have fun!

Is That Really A Gate?

Hi!
During the winter months when the wedding bookings are slow, there are always all kinds of activity at the Jones Victorian Estate. There are engagement photo shoots, anniversary photo shoots, visiting with past Brides and their precious new babies as well as replanting, repairing and redesigning. 
Today is just one of those days!
We transformed our old, white gate into a lovely garden backdrop.
 This particular area 
is our smoking section... away from the crowds. 


With the real large trees in the background accenting the artwork and newly covered bristro sets for comfort and conversation, this area is sure to become a favorite! 



Come see why the Jones Victorian Estate is like no other!
Let's have fun!

Beautiful Flowers in the Garden!

Hi!
As the rain subsides, beautiful flowers are emerging everywhere on the Estate. 
It's magical and charming to witness such a hardy transformation so quickly.


 The succulents emerge and boast with rich color!

The potted Pigmy Palms come alive with color that were sleeping only days ago!


Come see the Wedding magic of the Jones Victorian Estate.
