We had the opportunity to work with Jen and Jake after we helped out with Jen’s twin sisters wedding a few years ago. You can find them here, Chrissy and Casey’s Wedding. We have a lot of memories with Casey and Chrissy’s wedding, it was FUN! We just adore both these couples. Jen and Jake though knew their wedding would be a little more low key. Though they are twins Chrissy and Jen are very different. So as we planned the details out with Jen and Jake we wanted to be sure we helped them make “their” wedding.
It was a HOT June afternoon in Sacramento at Courtyard D’Oro, it was peaceful and beautiful. We had the hard-working staff at Courtyard D’Oro making sure everything was in place and ready to go and we had Jenn with Jenn Bartell Photo ready to rock all their pictures (which she did, thanks for the eye candy in our post. LOVE!). You can’t forget the incredible cake by New Roma Bakery with a millions flavors and last but not least the kids from Elk Grove High School that did her flowers. Jen mentioned that the kids are taking a class and do affordable flowers to gain experience, she was sooo happy with them! Jen and Jake made a lot of their own things for the wedding but the most memorable was their fan. Look here, isn’t it perfect?
We planned a lot of fun things with them; custom intros that Jake wrote up since he’s a creative writer, trivia to release tables and their Top 10 list pass along cards. Their guests were so in-tune with everything and participated. It ended up being a fun filled evening (even if it was blistering outside). 😉
Below is their cute photo booth print, we think it fit them perfectly! Thanks Jen and Jake for being awesome and letting us share your spectacular day with you!
