When Jeannie called me about her ideal wedding, I knew that it was going to be a super sweet, intimate wedding at the Heritage Society. We hit it off right away and when she started describing all the details she wanted in her wedding, I knew family was super important to her. She had a strong desire to do a tea ceremony and to have lots of time for family photos. As a wedding photographer, I have seen a lot, and it always warms my heart when family is important to the couple.
Before we get into their wedding I want to remind of what they look like! Here is their engagement session at the dreamy McGovern Centennial Gardens, where they read books and walked among the flowers.
Intimate Wedding at the Heritage Society
When Jeannie and Alan were trying to figure out their wedding last year, they went back and forth on a lot of options. Jeannie told me they had been going back in forth about whether they should have a simple court house wedding, or do an adventure elopement, or maybe a backyard wedding, to waiting until next year and finally decided on doing an intimate wedding at the Heritage Society.
They brought on some amazing vendors to make their wedding as special as possible. J. Bray Events coordinated everything, doing all the logistics from rentals and flower setup, to making sure all of us were in position for all the important moments.
The flowers they chose were stunning. They had a light boho feel to them, using a lot of cream tones with punches of orange red. College Park Flowers made the arch look like piece of art and the bouquet was a showstopper! Jeannie, Alan and I had a ton of fun with the photos to highlight all of the flowers they incorporated.
The ceremony was right in front of the white house with black shutters, Jeannie wore a vintage gown with lace on the top and peblam white dots on the skirt. She looked beautiful! They had a traditional tea ceremony with an elegantly simple tea set. They said their vows with lots of touching moments and laughter mixed in. I love how emotional everyone was during the ceremony, it made it feel special!
After their touching wedding ceremony, Jeannie and Alan walked over the the gazebo and had a champagne toast with this in attendance. Palace Party poured the champagne and Jeannie and Alan had their first dance. It was so sweet! You can see how much they love each other during the dance, and there were a lot of wet eyes from those watching.
