I knew Megan & Jacob were designers, but when Megan sat in my office and shared their letterpress invitations her guests received, I about died....Red! Graphic! PURE AWESOME! So, after hearing about her big day with Jacob, and listening to all of the details they designed together, I knew our team was in for a treat.
Lauryn, Natalie & I arrived at the Blue Dress Barn to begin setting up the beautifully restored barn around noon on Sunday. Megan, her sister Kristen, Jacob and Megan's parents were there helping unload all of the gorgeous DIY details. It was a delight to work directly with Megan to make sure everything was exactly how she envisioned it as we set up.
Megan & Jacob did a First Look with their fabulous photographers, Jessie & Eric Stevens from Simply Jessie Photography. When couples want to join their guests at cocktail hour, plus get a ton of great photos, it makes a lot of sense to do this. And amazing photos were taken - check out the posts from Simply Jessie Photography if you're interested in all the shots - PART ONE & PART TWO.
Guests began arriving and one of my favorite parts of the day was that cocktail hour was FIRST! Guests grabbed a drink from the bar, and munched on glorious appetizers from Classic Catering before the ceremony - which was as awesome way to begin the celebration and I'd highly recommend it.
The short & sweet wedding ceremony took place on the side of the barn, under the arbor while everyone cheered on the couple. Guests made their way inside for a second cocktail hour, and Megan & Jacob had time to greet their guests casually. Dinner was served family style by Classic Catering before the toasts and cake cutting. The couple began the party portion of the evening with a spin around the dance floor together.
Since the couple LOVES photobooths, they had The Traveling Photobooth on hand the entire evening for guests to enjoy. Everyone also enjoyed s'mores over the bonfire, which was a great idea for a barn wedding!
Megan & Jacob - Thank you SO much for allowing Pearls Events to be a part of your day. Your style is impeccable, your love is contagious and we were thrilled to celebrate with you! Wishing you nothing but years & years of happiness!
