Vivacious Vintage Celebration : Jillian and Ryan Part 3

Photos by Kate Crafton of The Studio Five

Jullian and Ryan LaFave’s flawless wedding day flowed like silk into the evening celebration. September 5 was perfect :  a warm, sunny day with refreshing evening temps to usher in happy moods for cocktails and dinner.  The reception floral and decor repeats the vintage feel with lace overlays, vintage iron tabletop candelabras and romantic garden flowers mixed with personal accents like family portraits and Irish blessings for every guest.

As family heritage was a focus of their wedding, Jillian custom designed their wedding cake featuring family trees for her and Ryan. We love original cake designs, and remember Jillian sketching her idea on paper. Patty Russell of Patty Cakes was definitely up to the task. It turned out beautifully.

And what about Ryan’s Patty Cakes DeLorean ‘back to the future’ groom’s cake?  Smokin’ hot!

Who can resist beautifully romantic tables, candlelight, the wafing of fragrant garden flowers and fresh air?  Elegant surroundings at Cedarwood doesn’t mean giving up the relaxed atmosphere guests always rave about.  Cedarwood in three words? Chic not stuffy!

(Above) Love Jillian’s short reception dress!

There’s a whole lot of shaking going on this night to celebrate Jillian and Ryan’s marriage. Such a fun party! We can’t resist sharing some of the cool color-infused dance shots by Kate Crafton of The Studio Five.  In case you missed Part 1 and 2 of this wedding, check out her incredible photos from Jillian and Ryan’s wedding day at Cedarwood!

What a fantastic farewell for Jillian and Ryan.  (Below)  A romantic moment on the front porch before being showered with roses.

LOVE THEIR RIDE!  Matchless Limo is always impressive with  impecable class.  A vintage car for this vntage-inspired wedding made a send-off statement.  Now it’s off to Ireland for the honeymooners.

Jillian and Ryan and all of your fantastic families:  We had a great time!  Your wedding expresses why we love our work so much. May you always enjoy the luck (and blessings) of the Irish!

Kate, we will see you and The Studio Five back at Cedarwood this Month for our first wedding of the season. Can’t wait!
