We are SO excited to FINALLY be sharing Jillian and Dustin’s utterly FABULOUS wedding photos with you. Their wedding was featured this morning on Style Me Pretty and I’m excited to share more from their big day. Jillian and Dustin are LOVES! Simply put, we ADORE them and we couldn’t have loved their wedding more. It was at our favorite venue with our favorite team of vendors and these two are just out-of-this-world in love with each other. It made for one heck of a wonderful day. I adored everything about Jillian’s details – from her Jenny Packham dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes to the spot-on florals from Flourish and incredible design by Kate Miller Events this day was nothing short of perfect.
Of course while I was basking in all the bridal glory, Dustin was having a blast photographing our dapper groom and his hilarious group of groomsmen. Note to future grooms: If you wear a velvet blazer I might pet your arm pretty much the whole time I’m with you. Just be aware.
Jillian and Dustin chose the ballroom for their ceremony location and added lots of candles to the after-dark affair. I LOVE that Dustin (the groom, not my hubs) gave me the thumbs up seconds before Jillian walked down the aisle. These two were SO ready to get married. It was fantastic! (And yes, I totally cried… but you probably knew that already.)
As soon as these two were down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs. we RAN upstairs to the Governor’s Suite for some after-dark couple pictures. I love this happy accident photo of them right after the ceremony running to the elevators.
Just a quick word about the picture above. When I helped Jillian and Dustin into this pose I said, “Okay you two, this one is for your mom’s.” To which our handsome groom replied, “No, this one is for our daughters.” Que Sarah Maren melting into a puddle on the balcony. I mean, SERIOUSLY! Could you be ANY more adorable? No, no you can’t, Dustin.
Now, let’s just talk for a minute about the incredibly beautiful job Kate Miller Events and Flourish did creating this event. I just loved how elegant everything was – from the linens to the draped pearls in the centerpieces it was STUNNING. I can’t thank Kate and Shannon enough for their hard work – the always make me look SO good. And a shout out to Kate who creates THE BEST timelines I have ever seen. She ALWAYS carves out space for me to photograph the room and I so appreciate that. My bride and groom usually don’t have the opportunity to see the room completely empty of people and it Kate knows how important it is that they be able to see that all of their planning and hard work paid off so she makes sure it’s photographed beautifully for them. Just another reason I simply adore working with her.
Jillian and Dustin we just can’t thank you enough for having us be there to witness your fabulous wedding. We love you loads! Check out the SLIDESHOW HERE or below for more from this perfect day.
Also a HUGE thank you to the vendors who worked on this wedding and KNOCKED IT OUTTA THE PARK! I love you all and am always thrilled when we get to work together.
