Cute // Fancy


How could a wedding turn out less than perfect when the bride is also the wedding designer?  In this case, it certainly didn’t!  Our Nearly Newlywed Real Wedding bride, Jennifer, designed a picture perfect wedding for her and her husband, and wore a gorgeous Romona Keveza dress to top it off!

What was your favorite part of your wedding?

The personal touches, all of those that traveled distances to be with us, and saying “I DO” of course!

What was your favorite detail of your dress?

Tough to pick one! I loved that it was backless. The fabric was luxurious and elegant. And the kicker was the ruffle detail on the back…a small bit of glam and sexy to add to the dress.

How did you and your husband meet? Tell us your love story!

My husband went to college with my older brother. When we met we had an instant connection — but the older brother surely prevented anything from happening between us! Shortly after we met my brother traveled out of the country for a few weeks and Sean immediately took advantage of my brother being far, far away. We started dating and soon had to break the news to my brother. He was very surprised! A few months after dating Sean was accepted to Law School in Ohio…and unbeknownst to him I was considering taking a job out of state…also in Ohio! So we moved together and made a wonderful adventure out of what was surely meant to be!

There’s nothing better than a little DIY project here and there to spice up a bridal shower or a wedding!  We absolutely love the blog “Tell Love & Chocolate” and we think she has some great DIYs along with so many other projects and recipes for any occasion! Our recent favorite are the gemstone garlands that we think would look fab as a bridal shower decoration!

These garlands are so easy to make!  All you’ll need is balsa wood 1/16 x 3 x 36 (can be purchased at Michael’s), an x-acto knife, paint brush, gold chord, glue gun, and paint.  The process is so simple!  You can download the gem template from the Tell Love and Chocolate blog, trace the stencil on to the wood, cut out the shape, decorate, and attach them to some string!
