There were two things Jenna told me she wanted to have for her wedding day at Belmont Country Club. One, she didn’t want it to rain. And two, she didn’t want either her or Jimmy to be too hot. Well on a slightly overcast day in October, Jenna got her wish. She also got to marry a great guy in Jimmy too!

Before they said their I Do’s surrounded by about 180 of the friends and family, Jenna made sure a special gift was delivered to Jimmy. A pretty sweet watch and a notebook where the first few pages were filled with personal thoughts and wishes before they met at the end of the aisle. Jimmy wouldn’t read out loud what Jenna wrote, but he had a smile on his face the whole time he was reading!

Back during their engagement, they mentioned that it was too bad they didn’t start dating sooner than they did because they were so happy together. Well now that Jenna and Jimmy have tied the knot, I hope they have a lifetime of happy years to make up for that lost time.

Enjoy some of the highlights from their preppy navy and pink wedding day!

See the couple on the right? Aren’t they the cutest? These grandparents won the anniversary dance with 65 YEARS married!! I have to admit, seeing all the established couples just staying on the floor (and there were several) after the years went up and up and up was so sweet and made me a little teary watching it all.

Happy Thursday, friends! I’m excited to bring you another dose of fun and inspiration with my newest installment of Need Feed Heed!

Need Feed Heed October 2014 v2

Need: It’s sweater season, and I’m loving the Fair Isle pattern with the plum accent color. From Target of all places!

Feed: Instead of recommending a recipe I’ve tried recently, can I instead ask if I’m the only one who will be happy when all this pumpkin stuff is gone? Am I the only one who hates anything pumpkin flavored?

Heed: But I do love October as a whole. The changing leaves, the start of boots and sweater weather, and Halloween!

Leave a comment with some of your recent Need Feed Heed discoveries. I’ll try them out myself, and maybe I’ll feature them in a future post too!

I don’t know why it struck me during Ashley and Mark’s engagement portraits at Morven Park, but I realized the relationships are a series of promises that two people make to each other. I mean, I knew this deep down but I really started thinking about it after I spent the evening with these two.

When you’re dating for a while, you make a promise (spoken or unspoken) that you’re not going to date anyone else. When you get engaged, you promise to commit yourself to getting married in the future. Then on the wedding date itself, you make the biggest promises. To have and to hold, to love one another through thick and thin, pledging yourself to always be by the side of your new spouse. It’s beautiful really. But the big promised will never get made if the smaller ones aren’t fulfilled right from the start back when you’re just dating.

Those smaller promises must have worked out pretty darn well for Ashley and Mark because come May 2015 they’ll be making the biggest one of all! In the meantime, enjoy some of the highlights from their engagement session (where I promised them that I’d make it an enjoyable experience. I hope I delivered on it!)
