Happy February! Love is in the air, and we’re dreaming of spring weddings that exude romance. Although this styled shoot was photographed in the fall, its boho style and blush + plum color palette make it perfect for a spring celebration. The bride’s style is soft and ethereal, with loose curls that can be worn up or down. The tablescape is light and airy, with eclectic details from the pink rosette runner to the amethyst geode vases, and gold accents. Such a sweet way to tie the knot with your valentine! You can see more tips for achieving this romantic boho look on our Style Made Simple blog.

Thanks again to photographer Jenna Henderson for these beautiful images.

Erin + Kyle ~ October 17, 2015

This sweet couple celebrated their nuptials in a sophisticated garden reception at CJ’s Off the Square. The floral centerpieces, arranged by the ever-talented Enchanted Florist, created a gorgeous color palette of blush + burgundy. The couple also chose to incorporate fun personalized details like the shotgun shell place-card holders. We were so happy to help Erin + Kyle plan the wedding of their dreams, and we’re so grateful for their glowing review of our services!

There are not enough amazing things I can say about CJ, her staff, and her venue! Planning a wedding was fun and stress-free, thanks to CJ! She helped me stay on top of everything and was there to answer all my questions along the way. Every person she referred me to was exceptional and wonderful to work with as well. On the day of my wedding, I had nothing to worry about; I knew CJ was going to meet and exceed all expectations, and she did! She stayed the entire night, made sure my husband and I actually got to eat the delicious dinner, and was there to make sure everything went as planned! The DJ, Jason, was absolutely amazing! He had everyone on the dance floor the entire night, and he knew how to keep the flow of songs going to make sure everyone had a good time! The caterer was amazing, and the food was delicious! Every one of my guests had an absolute blast and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! I am so thankful I had the opportunity to have my wedding at CJ’s Off the Square and was able to actually relax and enjoy my wedding day!

Special congrats to Erin + Kyle for winning the Best Cake in our 2015 Best of CJ’s contest!  Check out the other winners here.

Jessica + Eric’s November nuptials brought together soft pastels and rich textures for a sweet autumn wedding. The style was relaxed yet elegant, playful and personal. The opulent details, like the gold chargers and fine silverware, were balanced by more rustic, textured elements, including the oatmeal linens and lantern centerpieces.

Aside from the lovely decor, personalized pieces are what make your wedding uniquely yours. Jessica + Eric chose several ways to celebrate their love, including the “Love Story” chalkboard listing meaningful dates, and “doggie details” honoring their handsome ring-bearer, Sergeant the Bulldog. So sweet!
