A Classic Combination

Ice cold milk and an oreo cookie... they forever go together like a classic combination... just like our cute couple Jessica and Jesse. Yes, this is the jingle I had stuck in my head as we put the finishing touches on their wedding. We have been wanting to share this one for some time now and have been caught up with wedding season but are pulling this one out of the archives...just for some fun and to well...get the jingle stuck in your head to.


These sweet love birds came to us with just a couple specific requests for the feel of the wedding; that it be formal and timeless. After getting to know them a bit better, we found out that Jesse had a love for Oreos and Jessica for peacocks. What is more regal than a peacock? And what more timeless and classic than the ol' black and white favorite....Oreos! Sounds like a tricky combination but by using elements of both inspirations, we created a completely unique and timeless wedding for this classy couple!



Jessica looked absolutely breath taking on the big day! We adore the traditional jewelry and birdcage veil she donned. Jamie Hammond did a stellar job capturing the whole day and of course these gorgeous shots of the bride!



Further proving that the couple has excellent taste, Twigg Botanicals was brought in to create all of the personal flowers as well as the reception florals. Twigg used beautiful vintage looking flowers (anemones, Juliet roses, etc.) as well as guinea feathers and pale bleached peacock feathers in Jessica's stunning bouquet.





Jesse looking very dapper on his big day! Love that Twigg incorporated the feathers into his bout as well!









Look at that sisterly love! Jessica's younger sister made a beautiful bridesmaid. All of the bridesmaids were outfitted in chic LBD's with vintage brooches fastened to the waist for a glamorous touch!






What's a group of peacocks called? Anyone? A PARTY of course! Our bridal party was no exception. Lots of fun with this group! Love this shot of them goofing around at the beach! The bridesmaid bouquets were punched up a bit by adding in purple and green florals as well as vibrant peacock feathers. They looked drop dead gorgeous and really popped against the girls' black dresses!




So in love with this picture of Jessica- she just looks so classically beautiful!



Can't forget about the precious flower girls decked out in there black and white best! Sooo cute!


Jesse and Jessica fell in Love with the Thursday Club after our first walk through! It was really the perfect place to hold their reception with it being a historic building full of charm. We especially loved the vintage touches throughout the building and the overall grand feeling of the main room. It even had a stage-perfect to elevate their traditional head table. Oooh and those chandeliers!





Colors played a prominent role in this wedding to really set the tone. Table linens were selected in shades of peacock green and blue with teal napkins to really add a punch of color to each place-setting! We loved how the colors even being so bright, looked so refined and elegant.








What else would Jesse and Jessica give their guests as favors other than Oreos? The pair chose decadent chocolate covered ones wrapped up in little boxes to greet each guest at their seat. Brightly Designed created the custom packaging and we were are especially fond of the tags that were made to hint at the treat inside!







The patio was a hot spot for guests during this spring wedding. Who can resist delicious aquas frescas?


Instead of creating a candy station for the happy couple, we just had to incorporate an Oreo bar in honor of Jesse's favorite cookie! You can not believe how many different types of Oreos there are... We had them all from Double Stuf to Cakesters to Fudge Cream!








The Oreo bar was definitely a hit with guests young and old! We even had little goodie bags for those who wanted to take the delicious treats on the road...




The head table was quite a work of art. Displaying it on the stage really set it apart from the guest dining tables and gave the whole reception a grander feel. We added "curly willow" accents that hinted at the tail of a peacock.




The beautifully traditional and delicious cake was from VG Bakery in Cardiff. Twigg brought some fun by adding purple blossoms and peacock feathers to accents the tiers. We also created a custom purple cake box to match and elevate the grand cake. As a nod to the past the couple chose to adorn the cake with a vintage topper who coincidentally shared the same ensemble as Jesse.




Awww these black and white shots by Jamie Hammond are favorites! They definitely fit the classic theme perfectly. So sweet!



Congratulations to Jesse & Jessica! We had so much fun planning your wedding! These two really are a classic combination that will forever go together.
