The newlyweds set the tone for their reception by making their grand entrance to “Ticks” by Brad Paisley. Yep, cued it right up to, I wanna check you for ticks.
The Best Man and Maids of Honor told the story of how Jay and Jess met on the bus in high school years ago. When Jay finally got up the nerve to get Jess’ number, he wasn’t sure he would call. “I’ll throw this dart,” he told his brother. “If I hit a bull’s eye, I’ll call her.”
Bull’s eye! “You guys were meant for each other,” Jay’s brother, the Best Man said. “The dart proved it.”
THE DETAILS: The bridesmaids wore strapless, floor length yellow gowns and the groomsmen had cool pale green ties. Lovely tall and short floral arrangements of blue and pale green flowers on the tables.
Each table was named for a Lake or Mountain that was special to the couple, who hikes and camps regularly, and also decorated with a postcard. Guests received favors of jars of honey.
The wedding cake was decorated like a birch tree, complete with peeling paper, pine cones and acorns. So cute! Instead of a guest book, Jay and Jess asked their guests to sign an Adirondack chair they plan to seal later on.
These guys danced from the end of dinner until the very end. I watched grandma on the dance floor raising her fist to “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz, and we played Hank Williams Jr. It was diverse, energetic and FUN.
Thank you so much for letting us be a part of it, Jess and Jay!
