"Hi Michelle,

I was just watching the video of our wedding ceremony and toasts and I was again just amazed at how beautiful everything was!! If I didn't say it enough before, thank you so much for every thing that you did for us! People at the wedding still mention to me how gorgeous it all was and how incredible it was that the rain stopped and the sun came out! Such a special day!

WHIMSICAL AND GREEN WAS THE THEME AT THE JONES VICTORIAN ESTATE!

Hi!

The mix of fresh picked greens, the textures and sizes of the cut stumps, the glow of amber votive candle holders, the freshness of real moss, the whimsical touches of homemade snails and mushrooms, the warm surprise of burlap table runners, the crisp brown guest napkin tied with twine with a spring of fresh rosemary, the elegance of tapered candles in green, amber and clear wine bottles and the creative wooden table numbers, all came together creating just the natural and green theme that was Denise and Jeff's wedding reception.

Since Denise and Jeff enjoy and collect quotes, she made wooden tags with their favorite quotes for each guest as favors. What was truly amazing, she made 100 tags each with a personalized quote!!!
"Marriage is not a noun, it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way ou love your partner every day." Barbara De Angelis
She painted Bride and Groom signs that we hung from their chairs. She even painted on an old door another special quote, welcoming the guests to her ceremony!!
"The purpose of our lives is to be happy" Dalai Lama
The creativity didn't stop at the tables!! Here, Denise made a beautiful twig, burlap seating chart. Each tag was pinned to the burlap covered board with rock topped pins!!!
This was a wonderful display of not only her craftsmanship but Jeff's too. After all, he cut the logs for the tables, cut the wood for our signs, added his special quotes to the mix, and
gave us the encouragement and added fun to really enjoy this process!! Well done!!

Doors... They're Not Just for Opening!




 \Hi! I found an old door with a lovely window recently and it has now found a lovely home with all my wedding props! It's a wonderful accent and a lovely detail to add. The doors may be decorated with flowers, special sayings, family photos... there are any number of decoration ideas available. They can go anywhere but I particularly love them as the entrance to the ceremony site.
These are just  a few of the fun with doors!
"I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them." Elizabeth Taylor

We have beautiful French Doors for the assigned seating! No one will loose their cards!!!
In this picture, a special family photo display was added to the middle!

Welcome! An open door is the best welcome!


Is there a place for a door at your wedding? 



Doors and windows outside? Yes, they are a marvelous greeting and a beautiful way to invite your guests forward.






What's your dream? Let's have some fun....

AWE... THE WINDOW SHOT AT THE JONES VICTORIAN ESTATE


HI!

One of my favorite spots at the Jones Victorian Estate is the front picture window!

With the light that streams thru the lace curtains, the silhouette of the draperies and the Bride and Groom's eagerness to enjoy this moment, makes it all just perfect. 


Here is another beautiful silhouette!


Ooooo, black and white silhouette!!

  And, the Bride and Groom for that sneak peak.
Whatever your dream photo is, it is here at the Jones Victorian Estate.
