J + R at Old St. Mary's Church and Cuvée

Reading Jillian's form post inquiry from my website made me laugh out loud. I was immediately interested + feeling good energy. We met at Purple Door for ice cream one rainy day last June. I, of course, got an ice cream cone, and sexually licked it the entire time Jillian was trying to brief me on her wedding. We both laughed about it. She + Rick are my people.

I worked with Jillian's Mom not-so-secretly planning her bridal shower at Third Coast Provisions. Her Dad also called me a couple of weeks before the wedding with a grand plan to surprise the couple with a Mariachi Band. I was on Google Translate all week leading up to their wedding while I coordinated with the band. What a fun, loving + warm family I got to know.

Classic black + white, with modern winter vibes. That's probably how I'd describe Jillian + Rick's wedding. J had her bridesmaids in white, and I loved that look. The guys wore classic black tuxes, and everyone had great style. I loved this day. Just a perfect dusting of snow (when we were, of course, rumored to have a blizzard). It was winter magic.

The vendor team on this *showed up* big time, and worked together to make a really special day happen for J + R.

J + R seeing the reception space for the first time - this was special.

Jillian's dad surprised them with a Mariachi Band to interrupt his speech. Jillian's reaction was amazing!
