A jack+bean Wedding: Ashley & Bill

Ashley was my big sister in our sorority at Penn State (yay Theta!), and when I say she went above and beyond for big/little week that's putting it SO mildly. After you see some of these wedding pictures I think you'll understand where I'm coming from. She took every last detail into consideration and made their big day the best day ever.

A few weeks before her wedding, Ashley reached out to me to do a few last day-of details for her - programs and menus, and I couldn't have been more excited. What's been so great about starting jack+bean is reconnecting with sorority sisters, and in some cases, their sisters (thanks Amy & Angela - who is also a PSU Theta!!)!

I also want to thank Ashley and Bill's amazing photographers, Mary + Roy (appreciate that + sign!) for letting me do a blog post with their photos! Mary reached out to me on Pinterest so she could give me access to all of the photos - just amazing. If I know anyone getting married in South Jersey anytime soon, you'll be my official vendor recommendation, for sure! Another sorority sister, Erin Taylor, did Ashley's makeup, so if you're in need of a makeup artist for your big day in NYC, Long Island and New Jersey, be sure to look her up! So, here you are: Ashley & Bill's amazing wedding!

More polka dots! I just can't get enough. While program wording is always a little difficult, even with a host of templates I keep on file, Ashley's was really different! They incorporated Filipino wedding traditions, it made for an absolutely gorgeous ceremony. We also included their wedding hashtag, #ashandbill on their program, as it was an outdoor ceremony and they knew everyone would be instagramming up a storm!

I had never done wrap-around menus like these but I really love how they turned out. They went with the tablescape perfectly! Definitely something I'll keep in my back pocket for another wedding.

Now these next few photos, jack+bean and myself have absolutely nothing to do with, I just need to share the pretty!

I mean how could I not include these gorgeous blooms? So beautiful.

This one is particularly special. Ashley has absolutely ridiculous handwriting (I think you have a future in calligraphy whether you know it or not!), and hand wrote their table numbers. Wolf Hall is the dorm where our sorority lived at PSU. Brides, what a great idea!

Ashley and Bill and their super sweet dog Bella, complete with a tutu and rosette collar.

I just loved these gray bridesmaid dresses. Universally flattering color and it paired perfectly with their flowers.

Finally, the happy couple. Thanks again Ashley for letting me be apart of your big day! The wedding was so perfect and every detail beautiful. Wishing you and Bill a lifetime of happiness!
