Haven't you heard? It's all in the details!
Why do the details matter?
Each of those special touches brings your personality to life, and what better place than your home and your wedding! 

If you are purchasing a car, you're deciding on the make and model, the color, the engine size, the interior, the special wheel treatment (some do!) and more before the final purchase...Right?

Wedding planning is really not that different! 
And, that's a perfect analogy for the Grooms that they will love!

Here at the Jones Victorian Estate, we offer so much more than just a location.
We offer the assistance, the care and the details in all our packages. 
Personalizing is our middle name... the Jones Personalizing Victorian Estate!

Your event should reflect your style and rather than being overwhelmed by the process, (did you get overwhelmed buying your last car?), this is the time for creativity (you can do it!), a time for fun (enjoying the planning equals a fun wedding day) and time that you can call your own, (seriously, it's your day!).

After all, it's your day and together we can make it grand!!
Without the extra rental costs.... check out some of these props!

Luggage, crates, silver trays, silver tea pots and smalls, and books!

An old dresser instead of a cake table, frames, assorted cake stands, pink depression glass.

Old wine barrels! Who says you can't get beer from a wine barrel?!

French doors, old doors, old windows, vintage china and
Chandelier lighting.

Shutters?! Right. Who knew they would be so cute for your seating cards. And, they re-purposed, we can use them as a vignette with the old bistro set...

Old gates with hearts... old pallets with hearts! Hearts? I love 'em.

Wine barrels as tables bases, old doors for table tops, old picnic baskets!!!

Silver and gold charger plates, old vintage blue trays, vintage tins, tea cups (stacked they are so impressive... table number or as a gorgeous accent), vintage napkins....

And of course, chandeliers and crystals. 

So, whatever your decorating style, let me help you find it!
Let's have some fun!

We are completely private on many acres of land.

We have a breathtakingly, beautiful drive (over 1,000 feet) into the property that is part of the Jones Victorian Estate!
We have our own parking lot that is fully serviced by our Valet. 

We have a secluded wedding site with water falls and beautiful surroundings.

We have a separate yet inclusive reception site that is accented with chandeliers and old street lamps. 

We have a rich history dating back to 1881. 

All of this and more is tucked into the hills of Orange for complete privacy. 

I work as your personal coordinator and stylist and together, we create your day based on your style and ideas.

Tree Branch Cake Stand made for the Jones Victorian Estate (714) 343-1964

I have to tell you that I just love my job! 
As I look at these pictures, they just make me smile!

I want to send out a huge thank you to Susan's Father-in-law, Steve Moore, for creating the cake stand of her dreams. She had found a picture and that particular stand was really pricey! 
Steve came to the rescue and made it just for her!

  He even carved a heart with their initials, just like a real tree!!
We added birds to the limbs and flowers on top and waa laa, an amazing display!

 The cake was stenciled beautifully by ABC Cakes and a bird's nest was tucked beside it.

Hanging Birds in the windows, frames with canning jars filled with flowers on the lattice work, vintage blue/green corning ware on the window sills, they all added that special touch that made the cake stand the true centerpiece on the design!
Thank you again Steve! I love it!

There's always a solution! Let's get together!

Flower girls, flower girls, a whimsical addition! The Jones Victorian Estate (714) 343-1964

Are you thinking of adding a flower girl and/or ring bearer to your wedding party? Are you thinking maybe two, or maybe three, or even four, what about five?
Erica and Charles did just that! They had five beautiful little flower girls ranging from the age of 2 years old to 8 years old. We didn't think the 2 year old would make it but just having her in the wedding was magical.
Erica decided to do something different then a mini bouquet or a flower petal basket for her little girls. She came up with these "floral wands" idea and they were a huge hit!!
She started with a wooden dowel that she covered with ribbon. She twisted and wrapped the green stem of a silk peony around the ribboned dowel. She then hot glued more peonies to the top. Underneath the flowers, she added white polka dot organza ribbon bows along with a pink satin edged ribbon bows. Black and white stripe ribbon in long lengths were glued with pink polka dot ribbon and a tiny pink satin ribbon. Each dangling ribbon was a different length. We spray painted a galvanized tin bucket white and added ribbon and a button on top for decoration. It was a perfect choice to hold all the wands!!!
Erica loved baby's breath wreaths for the flower girls and they looked adorable.
Here she goes, she getting ready for pictures!!
It was wonderful to see the girls get along so well. As it turned out, the two 8 year old girls paired up and the two 6 year old girls paired up! Walking down the aisle with your new friend turned out to be perfect. We add animal crackers to the vintage quilt that they sat on and everyone had a great time.
Here's Erica with the first two flower girls, Kendal and Katalin. The others joined the group shortly there after.
Are you thinking of adding flower girls to your Bridal Party? They are so much fun and add a
magical touch! I'm here to help with goodies for them! Enjoy!
Thank you Brandi Barr Photography for the photos!
