One year ago today I was at the happiest place on earth. Even though Disney may try to claim that title, this Disney themed, vintage wedding was one of the most creatively beautiful events I’ve ever attended and the couple that put this whole event together will forever be some of my favorites!
To begin this amazing love story you have to go back to high school when I met the groom. Between super bowl parties and bowling league games I was able to get to know Jacob and Janessa as a couple and right away I knew that they were something special. There are couples that just make the world a better place when they are around and that is what I would say about these two. Their smiles are bigger and more authentic when they are with each other, they delight in each other and support each other through thick and thin.
Every part of the day was planned with precision and Janessa sent me the most beautiful schedule of the day that she designed! She is a graphic artist and her immense creativity was seen in every detail of the day. The pastel colors she chose crafted an experience for the guests that really did remind us of Disney. Just like the parks that give visitors an experience that is magical, this wedding duo transformed a dark ballroom into a magical setting to commit their lives to each other. Being downtown Spokane at the Historic Davenport Hotel allowed us to continue their theme of vintage elegance and the staff here was so willing to help us in any way possible, including a rooftop first look which was a dream come true!
Although all of the pieces of the night were spectacular, one of my favorite parts of the night was when Janessa’s whole family danced with her on the dance floor, there are few families I have seen with the bond, inside jokes and history that you can tell they have with each other and it was so special to watch them enjoy this amazing night with the couple. Congratulations on your first year of marriage Jacob and Janessa! I can’t wait to see what this next year holds for you, including the beginning of your life as parents!
The Knitting Factory staff were also wonderful to work with and quickly transformed the ceremony location to the dinner portion of the night and the pizza options were a fun touch that gave guests a variety of options. The dessert buffet was complete with so many chocolate covered confections that it was hard to pick a favorite.
One hilarious moment of the night was when Janessa’s dad got a close up of the garter being removed, much to the surprise of Jacob! 😉
