We love the fact that Jess and Billy Manning discovered Cedarwood through a Kentucky Bridal Magazine that featured a Cedarwood wedding but we love them even more. Jess and Billy are a totally cool couple with a genuine, laid back style that beckons people to them. Their November 14 wedding was true artistry – blending the best of fall into a gracefully romantic and warm French Country fete extraordinaire. If you missed our first blog post on their wedding, including a link to Shaun Ring Photography, click here to see it! Shaun’s amazing slide show puts you there!
We were heavenly happy to get a CD of images from Shaun Ring so we can share more delightful details that define this couple and their wedding. Here are some of our ‘part 2’ faves, starting with a series of black and white images of Jess and Billy:
Reception details are fun for us to share since they showcase the talented Cedarwood Design Team and are a great resource for brides looking for inspiration. We are head over heals for Jess and Billy’s French Country reception style and love these fantastic shots of the Cedarwood Pavilion.
Jess and Billy wanted to find a way to incorporate a lyrical quote that had special meaning for them: “Always remember there was nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name,” and we did! Our custom chalkboard bar menu adds a personal touch to the celebration (and a bar menu is something every guest reads!)
Dreamy cake design by Patty Cakes incorporates two essential design elements: lace and bird nests! It is soft and rustic at the same time, and one of our fall favorites! And look at the yummy home made pies….nice to have an aunt who bakes so well! …and A Dream Come True Catering is ready to serve!
Next up: beautiful bouquet photos! We love the sage and navy color palette with champagne, ivory, gold and peach florals. Autumn Hydrangea blossoms used for the bridesmaids’ bouquets are a perfect fall compliment to their airy organdy dresses.
Jess and Billy, congratulations on your upcoming three month anniversary. What a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
Thanks Shaun, for sharing your amazing work. And congrats for being one of our 2009 Cedarwood Fave Photo winners!
