    Taylor + Jacob

    An Elegant Rustic Wedding

    Taylor and Jacob are two of the sweetest people I have ever met. Ever. Less than a year ago, Taylor contacted me to help her design her very large, elegant rustic wedding. This girl was organized and had a vision – a light canopy, to get married under a chandelier, to make a lot of the decor herself and have lots of her mother’s favorite flowers throughout the table centerpieces. It was a perfect vision and I was honored that she trusted me to make it happen. Once I got to meet Taylor and Jacob last November, I fell in love with both of them instantly. Her heart for God made me love her even more!

    These two middle-school sweethearts – yes, you read that correctly (they started dating in 7th grade) – are seriously the perfect match for one another. There is so much love, trust and honesty between these two, that you can’t help but step back and admire how crazy they are for each other and for God! Jenna from Patch 36 Photography captured this beautifully!This design was full of personal touches and details that accentuated Taylor’s rustic elegant vision. Taylor knew in order to pull off our awesome design plans, we were going to need a very large crew. I have never seen an entire community come together like Bluffton, IN did for Taylor and Jacob. We designed and planned for months and she found a crew to help her. I was blown away by the love and support from literally 100’s of people to make Taylor’s dream wedding come true. I can honestly say, it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in this industry! Everyone was so nice and welcoming! I can’t wait for my next event in Bluffton! Taylor and Jacob – thank you so much for all of your kindness and generosity! I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!
