wedding date: June 24th, 2017
I attended high school with this groom. John was a ton of fun then as I recalled all of the crazy scavenger hunts we did in large groups and drove around town with nothing to really do. John is still the funny guy who has a hard time making a serious face. I also know Jenna’s sister, Erin. What a small world when we starting talking about how she found me! Jenna and John also just moved into a house right down the road from me, crazy!
To start the ceremony, their son Camden came down the isle with Jenna’s best friend and her sister on each side. He carried a sign that Jenna’s mom had purchased just for the ceremony. Jenna and John’s wedding ceremony had a combination of Pagan and Celtic traditions. The hand fasting was so simplistic and romantic. To begin, the JP burned sage to bless the space they were getting married in. Jenna made the hand fasting ties and John made the arch they were married under. They also jumped over the broom once their marriage was announced. In the Pagan tradition, the broom is to sweep out the impurities and to jump over together into their new life as husband and wife.
Their reception kept going under the beatufuly decorated space by Jenna’s mother. She made a ring of greenery for the center of the pavilion and the lights and tulle adorned the space. Jenna’s very talented mother also made the center pieces that consisted of beautiful succulents and hand crafted numbers made from copper wire. They danced the night away with their closes friends and family as the stars came out later that evening. They could not have had a more perfect wedding day! Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding day! Cheers to the next 30 years!
