So this was the kick off of rojo’s wedding season, and what a start it was! When Julie and Chris first met with me and told me about their wedding ideas inspired by the colors of the sunrise, plus all of the DIY pieces they were planning, I was totally excited. So to start it all off we planned a sunrise engagement shoot that was freezing cold, but amazing! Then, when June 9th arrived I met up with Julie at the Crowne Plaza and got the first peek at all of the gorgeous details she planned; the beautiful rainbow shades of the flowers; bridesmaid’s shoes; the folders for all of those reading in the ceremony; all of the gold accents; that dress!
Then the details at the Greenhouse Loft–AMAZING! Just see for yourself! Julie did all of this! Yes, you read that right…Julie did ALL of this. That backdrop, so cool! Look at the colors hanging on the chairs, and the candles with the painted patterns. I loved the tissue paper backdrop for the entry way… It all looked so good!
Julie and Chris are great people–the type of people that you want to keep hanging out with after the wedding is over. They had such a beautiful ceremony officiated by Chris’ parents. One special event that is a wedding tradition is the “ring warming”. The rings are passed through the audience and everyone is given an opportunity to give their best wishes, good thoughts and prayers to the couple while warming the rings! Such a cool way to involve all of the guests. There were a lot of tears of happiness, and an eruption of laughter as Julie and Chris were introduced incorrectly after the first kiss.
…and then there was the dance party! Toast and Jam DJs know how to keep the dance floor going! I think I am going to have to email them for the playlist for the reception. It was crazy good! (Unsolicited plug: If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding, click that link right up there!) See if you can guess which family member (pictured below) danced so hard at another wedding that he split his pants. So if you have waded through all of these images maybe you can tell that we loved every minute of photographing Julie and Chris’ wedding! Thanks guys for letting rojo spend the day with y’all. Best wishes for your future!
And just to show you a little bit more of the amazing things that Julie created, here is a look at their invitation suite, the program, and the mad libs that served as their guest book! Isn’t this stuff just awesome!?!
