I have been blessed to work with some families multiple times and that was the case when Amanda’s parents met me at her wedding and said, “You have to help us out again in six months!” That is how I came to work with Sarah and Jeremy for their lovely celebration last summer.
Sarah & Jeremy are such easy-going people, yet they had every detail in place when we started working with each other two months before their wedding day. Sarah chose to get ready in their apartment and TimTab Studios captured all of the little details, like her stunning dress from Kelly Faetanini. Meanwhile, Jeremy got ready in a downtown hotel and we orchestrated their first look at the Civic Opera House. Look at these photos!! They are the sweetest couple in love!
Sarah, Jeremy and their wedding party braved the very warm June temperatures to grab photos around the city and then we made our way to Greenhouse Loft. On display at the venue were a number of Jeremy’s creations, like the welcome sign, escort card display, along with Fab Flora’s beautiful centerpieces. We can’t get over the size of those peonies!
Sarah and Jeremy chose to have a friend officiate their ceremony and that provided a very sweet and unique element to their ceremony. I personally loved that they chose to have a harpist play their ceremony music, as it is a beautiful sound that we don’t often hear at weddings. Guests then enjoyed a beautiful evening outdoors for cocktail hour and were brought back inside for a fabulous meal provided by FIG Catering. Guests had a choice of fontina and prosciutto stuffed chicken breast or a grilled flank steak. FIG Catering also provided the variety of cakes for dessert and guests were able to nosh on those in between dance breaks from Rachel at Toast & Jam. Let’s just say there were some pretty sweet moves on the dance floor that night.
Congratulations, Sarah & Jeremy! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
Note from the couple:
Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding day perfect! We knew you had every last detail covered, which truly allowed us to enjoy our day surrounded by family and friends! You’re amazing at what you do, and we are so lucky that we got to work with you.
