Jenny Wilson started planning her orange and ivory wedding 24 months out. At least that’s when she came to SSD Events and I met her. She knew that it would be worth it. After all, she waited 10 years for a proposal from Myron. And boy oh boy it could not have been any more heartfelt and sentimental. Myron was on bended knee at the monkey house at the zoo with a stuffed monkey (Jenny’s favorite), armful of flowers and their family present, including their adorable mini me’s: Serena and Alaina.
Here’s an actual photo of the proposal that was used as table number.
So fast forward to October 11, 2014 The song choices alone, and you are welcome I am not including a link to each one, were absolute perfection. Admittedly I am bias as half of her wedding soundtrack (as I like to call it) is exactly what I have on mine. To name a few, “I’ve Finally Found Someone” by Barbara Streisand and “Every Time I Close My Eyes” by Babyface.
We spent hours, accompanied by chips ahoy and chardonnay, rehearsing and brainstorming and organizing and planning and re-planning and I am so glad we did. Not only was it beautiful day but I now have another beautiful friend that I plan on keeping forever.
Jenny made most of her decorations, spray painting, glittering, printing and setting up mock guest tables until we knew it would be just right. The rest of her décor (linen, chiavari chairs, chargers and candelabras) was rented through Grand Rental Fairview.
Chef Art and the Four Points staff outdid themselves again- the room was beautiful and the food out of this world! It’s like coming home every time I come back to the Four Points and I truly love that. The gorgeous bridal bouquets and floral and tree centerpieces were from Schnucks Floral.
Beauty started early that day for the girls. But we had an incredible team of glamour technicians- The Glam Fam The GlamFam  who I have to give them props, at the last minute, they saved the day when another stylist was unable to make it. As always, you girls rule!
And while the girls got glammed up, the boys helped eachother get jazzed up! Because our timeline was tight, we made the most of the day by taking pictures beforehand.
Talk about a good looking group of guys! Here’s Jenny and Myron had their first look I am 110% sure he loved what he saw!
Their bridal party was sooo much fun!

Jenny spent weeks rehearsing a surprise choreographed performance for her reception complete with a second dress and shoes!

And you can see her girls rehearsed with her. {cue the “awwwww” here}
Jenny’s Aunt Bonnie lovingly made the wedding cakes and designed just as she wanted, with lots of bling and personalized with photos!
The reception was complete with a photobooth
And fantastic music by Partytime DJ’s! Daryl kept the dance floor packed all night long!
A highlight of the night was Coldstone Creamery – which is always so much fun and so delicious for guests!
I love being a part of days like these, precious moments like these watching two families and all their friends come together to celebrate two people promising to love each other for a thousand years… (that song was also featured on their wedding soundtrack).
My job is so wonderful and I am such a lucky girl that this is what my passion and purpose in life is. Thank you again for reading as I brag about my brides and SSD Events on this blog. xoxo
