Jeannette & Jason's Wedding

posted on: August 24, 2006



If I could name a queen of Do-It-Yourself weddings, it would have to be Jeannette! There were soooooo many handmade personal details that I can't possibly cover them all here, but I do think she had quite a bit of help from Jason, which is above and beyond for most grooms! Here he is making sure the off-road truck cake topper really does look like it's been through a trip in the "dirt"...



... and check out the ring bearer's "ring" box! (I guess a pillow wasn't manly enough for him!)



One of the ways that they really personalized their wedding was with tons of framed pictures of family members. I think all of the guests had a fun time looking at the pictures and seeing some great memories. Some people enjoyed them so much that they ended up taking their favorites home with them!




Their ceremony and reception were held at the historic Lafayette Grande in Pontiac, MI. The crystal ballroom has a perfect set up for watching the action on the dance floor.





One of the things that they felt was really important to include in their wedding was a way to remember important family members that had passed on. This can be tricky because you want to have the memory of those special people with you on your wedding day, but you don't want to turn your wedding into a memorial service. Jeanette & Jason were subtle with visual rememberances in picture frames on a mantle in the back of the chapel and a special pendant with Jeannette's mother's ashes on a memorial pillow. It's amazing how something so small can hold so much meaning.



Congratulations Jeannette & Jason!! I hope every day together is just as meaningful as your first day as man & wife! Click on any image to see more pictures from their wedding day.
