Chandler and Jason: Meredith College and Cobblestone Hall

We had the pleasure of planning Jason and Chandler's big day last spring. We met these two lovebirds over some coffee at Panera (after we went to the correct Panera!). You could immediately tell these two were just so in love. Whenever I work with a bride, there is always something that stands out to me that I find unique. For Chandler, that was her heart. She was always concerned with Jason having the wedding he wanted - it wasn't about her big day - but their big day! The menu was solely based on his favorite foods, and the tables were based off of his love for fishing. She was attentive and always made sure that those around her had their needs met. It was so great working with these two! I rarely get the chance to attend a bridal shoot and she asked me to tag along! I really felt like at the end of her event- she was no longer a client, but a friend. 

I was immediately inspired by her balloon and vintage feel she wanted. We went with hot air balloons "love is in the air." The invites were custom designed and to open! The little touches are what made this wedding so fun and so unique. It was sad to put their folder in the "past brides" category - but we are so grateful they chose us to share in their magical day.

The gorgeous ring!

Chandler had a twin sister! They affectionately called each other "hey twin!" It always made me smile :)

Seriously - could she be any more gorgeous?!?

Love these vibrant colors

The guys - such a fun group!

All set up! We learned a lot about helium on this one! First off, that pinterest picture of photos hanging from balloons - not actually able to do! There is very little that is lighter than helium. Not even baskets would work! We improvised and make it look great none the less!  

Seriously so cute!

Love this photo!

Love this - it describes her perfectly! Wiping his tears after very emotional vows

The kiss!!

The bridal party


Hot air balloon centerpieces!

The Menu- all of Jason's favorites. Apparently he lives on Hamburgers, Hot dogs, Tacos, and Pasta.

A little guest direction. We had ring toss, balloon darts, an old fashioned popcorn bar and corn hole for guests to enjoy before the party started. 

Love the sparkle

Hot air balloons and draping. Whew- those suckers took forever to make!

Find your seat for the ride!

The most epic of cake cuttings
