On July 17, 2010 I became Mrs. JEGs.
|My Not-So-DIYed Hoodie|
Right from the start, I knew that I wanted to carry my two favorite "summer" flowers: tiger lilies and hydrengeas. From there, I came up with my bold color scheme of orange and blue. My fantastic florist, Cindy from Infinitely Yours did a fantastic job of giving me exactly what I wanted
In order to compliment the orange and really make it pop, I dressed my ladies in a neutral navy blue
JEGs and his boys dressed in simple black suits and matching navy ties. The groom wore stripes.
My dress was an A-line silhouette with lace over lay and embellishment that gathered at the hip. I had the satin and tulle cut from the train to emphasize the beauty of the lace (and to take out some of the weight!) I also had cap sleeves added for the ceremony.
My shoes not only accented my color scheme, but were my 'something blue'!
Our ceremony was held in the gardens of Normandy Farm in Blue Bell, PA

Instead of a unity candle, we opted for a sand ceremony, blending two beaches with special meaning in our relationship.
It was a simple ceremony with two readings and traditional vows. And then it was official. We were man and wife.
My 'Must Have' shot
One of my favorite shots. We were walking back from the above shoot, and JEGs was holding my hand and my shoes.
We paid tribute to our family members by showcasing photos of their wedding day

The florist continued to build on my vision by creating floral arrangements in vintage bowls my mother and I scouted out in yard sales and thrift stores.
The cake was absolute perfection
For the reception, I ditched the sleeves of my dress and veil and opted for my DIY hair flower
Our first dance was to Eric Clapton's Wonderful Tonight and Chad from Pulse Entertainment kept the party going through the entire night.

As a special surprise, we asked the DJ to play a couple of song from when Momma G was in a rock band in the 70s. We supplied him with a CD and he was happy to oblige. Uncle Jimmy was even happier to hear himself crooning Locomotive Breath from 35 years earlier.
It was the most amazing, and most perfect day of my life. Best of all, when it was all over, JEGs was my husband, and I was his wife.
