Watching these two and how in love they are was so amazing. Ian adores Jenny and you see it as he stares at her. Sarah with Sarah Maren Photography captured their love in time. She is one of the funnest photographers to work with. She is so easy going and adds comfort to the bride and groom which is appreciated I am sure. By the end of your wedding you are normally done taking pictures and your face hurts from smiling so much. She just makes it fun and funky, we love that!
Jenny and Ian had Rev. Edward J. Donaghy officiate their wedding. He did great and is very diverse is what he can offer. We really enjoyed working with him and his professionalism. We also did some basic uplighting in purple for them which really pulled in their color scheme. Purple seems to be the color scheme for this year. 🙂 Jenny and Ian were married at the unique Croatian American Cultural Center. Mike there is so detailed oriented and truly wants his clients to enjoy their day. He has put a lot of work in remodeling the already beautiful venue to add so much more for his clients. The staff there really tries to go above and beyond and are so helpful. We enjoy working there when we get the chance.
So fun ideas they had for the night were the “Shoely Wed Game” where the couple sits back to back with one of each others shoe. Then the DJ asks a question, “Who’s more likely to…” and they hold the shoe up who they think it is. This is always fun when we do this at weddings, they did very well. Also for their garter toss, Ian removed it and put it around a football to throw. That always gets the single guys involved and more determined to catch the garter. We genuinely enjoyed working with them and getting to know them. Jenny was so organized and knew what she wanted and Ian was so supportive and easy going. It’s always a sad time when we finish planning couples weddings and they are over. We don’t get to see them and plan with them. But we are grateful for the memories, every wedding it different and unique in it’s own way.
Thank you Ian and Jenny for letting us be a part of your wedding day. We wish you many many years of happiness.
