Mindy + JamIe


Mindy and Jamie are 110% couple goals.  They are a gorgeous, kind, talented, and incredibly in love which shined bright through their Great Gatsby wedding.

The couples wedding took place at a private residence, which fingers crossed, we can use again if Mr. Budd will ever take me up on my offer.  The views from Mindy’s childhood home are stunning enough on their own, but paired with a simple white runner and white drape created the perfect ceremony backdrop that allowed the couple to be the main focus.  Just take a look at these photos from Dan Rice Photography and the amazing video from Jordan Niswender Videography.

After the ceremony and cocktail hour finished, guests were invited to the reception under lush green trees draped in café lights.  Dinner tables alternated silky champagne and drool worthy sequin linen as well as carefully crafted black or white fanned napkins.  Rather than flowers, large gold vases with black and white feather plumes brought stunning height to the tables while mercury votives in all sizes glowed in the evening light. 

This wedding also contains my favorite wedding moment EVER.  In 6 years of planning, I have never pulled off a surprise like this one.  Remember when I said this couple was talented? Well Jamie used to play in a popular cover band, so when he came to me with a song he wrote/recorded just for Mindy and asked to cut their first dance song short I did not hesitate to say yes and keep the secret. Blue Wave Band helped me orchestrate the surprise and let me tell you, there was not a dry eye in the house.

Mindy and Jamie, we wish you the sweetest future together and know you will do great things.
