Jacie and Tyler are simply adorable together. Jacie was tall and lovely in her off the shoulder gown and a snowflake barrette in her long hair. They exchanged vows in the Terrace room while Jeff played acoustic guitar. The couple was married “officially” last February before Tyler was deployed, so this ceremony was a special sentimental moment shared with all their guests.
At the reception, the parents and bridal party were introduced to “Say Hey, I Love You” by Michael Franti. Jacie and Tyler shared a special dance to the acoustic version of “Calling You” by Blue October. (I love Blue October! And this sweet acoustic version makes an amazing first dance.)
The Terrace Room was transformed into a snowflake wedding theme. White and pale blue linens sprinkled with snowflakes were on the tables, matching the Maid of Honor’s dress. The gorgeous wedding cake had white and pale blue snowflakes and a jeweled snowflake topper.
There were tons of reasons for this group to celebrate: Tyler’s return from Iraq, Jacie and Tyler’s birthdays, Jacie’s graduation from massage therapy school the newlyweds moving to Colorado. All these wrapped into one made for a warm, enthusiastic group!
One of the highlights of the night was when Jacie’s friend Natalia sang, “Like a Star” by Corinne Bailey Raye. She and Jacie have been friends since they were three years old! She nailed this song with amazing pitch and a beautiful voice.
By the end of the night, Jacie and Tyler’s friends were in quite the good mood. We watched a tall young man lift the Best Man into the air a la Dirty Dancing to “The Time” by the Black Eyed Peas. I think that was a first for us!
