Jena and Daniel had a lot of details to their wedding. From decorations at the home, to the planned dances at the reception with the bridal party. It seemed like no detail was too small to overlook. Sometimes, this can cause the wedding to be stiff and boring. Not so for Jena and Daniel, they are both such fun loving people, with many friends who they love to share company with. This was one day that was a fabulous time for everyone. We started at Jena’s parentss house where she was getting ready, then on to Daniel’s parentss house which happened to be close by. The bride and groom had presents for each other, which was a lovely Louis Vuitton handbag for the bride (she had told the groom it was more expensive than he needed to spend, but he got it for her anyway…good man!), and she got him a new set of Titleist golf clubs. What a sensible lady!
The church was St. Theresa Avila Catholic Church, a beautiful old church that really has a special look when the daylight filters inside. After the ceremony, they rode to Southern Oaks Plantation in an old Rolls Royce limo. They then took the horse drawn carriage ride to the front of the building to enjoy the fireworks and streamers for their entrance to the reception. Everyone had a great time, as is always the case at Southern Oaks. They recently had a celebration party with their friends to show off the photos and video from the wedding. Reports are it was a terrific party and everyone enjoyed the photos. I’m sure there will be many more celebrations to follow for this happy couple!
