Love, Laughter & Sweet Kicks!
A Summer Wedding In Cambridge
Rosie and Jack are a couple you can’t help but love. They radiate joy. Honestly, they just make you feel all warm and happy inside! I’ve known them for five years now, and I don’t know if I have ever met two people who smile and make each other laugh more.
Jack & Rosie met when they were just teenagers and quickly became the very best of friends. They loved spending all their time together, always made each other laugh, and over time, that strong friendship developed into a one-of-a-kind love. After several years of dating, Jack decided to propose on a day trip to London. Just like Rosie, her ring was unique and beautiful, and not the least bit cookie cutter. Jack certainly has an eye for the exceptional!
Rosie & Jack’s big day was much the same; beautiful and unique, and not the least bit cookie cutter! They wanted their wedding to feel fun, original, and very colorful. Rosie is a designer and Jack is an architect, so nearly every detail was handmade, not to mention packed with meaning. Some of the meaningful touches included a monogram that we created which had not only their initials, but also a design element that reflected their relationship to one another and to God. Another meaningful touch was the special moment when Rosie’s dad John played his saxophone during the ceremony and nearly brought the room to tears. It was so touching.
At the reception, the escort cards had illustrated pictures of all the places that were special to the couple which coordinated with the different tables. As Jack is an architect, it was no surprise that they wanted to incorporate an architectural drawing of the reception venue, mapping out each area. Each table had hand-crafted pylons that Rosie and Jack asked friends to create with their interpretation of the word ‘foundation.’ Each one was distinct and unique, small pieces of art that the couple could take home and have as keepsakes.
In addition to all these meaningful touches, Rosie and Jack wanted to bring the outdoors in, so they had lots of box flowers, incorporated lots of bright colors, had a grass runner, and at the reception, Rosie’s brother Andrew created clouds that hung from the ceiling, where multicolored pieces of paper reflected light throughout the room. To top it all off, their favors were grass coasters with glass bottles of Diet Coke (Rosie’s favorite!), which complemented that playful outdoorsy feel.
Finally, in true Jack & Rosie fashion, they had lots of little surprises tucked into the day. The ceremony literally ended with a bang as brightly colored confetti canons were set off in the balcony of the church, a surprise from the bride’s brother Andrew and father John. At the reception, a town crier announcing the couple’s entrance, a game of croquet, a live band, a vintage ice-cream cart, and custom high tops for the new couple (and their fun-loving best man) were just a few of the fun surprises that Rosie and Jack had in store for their guests. This Cambridge wedding was filled to the brim with love, laughter and meaningful touches. A perfect blend if you ask me!
