From the sparkling snow, blue skies, and mountain backdrop of Carolyn & Sean’s first look to the dripping orchids and soft drape framing their St. Julien ceremony; from the twinkle lights on evergreen trees to the glimmer of sequined flowers on table linens; and from the touching toasts to the human pyramid, this wedding showcases the beauty and romance of winter in all its elegance.  Inspiration abounds in the stunning images captured by Studio JK.  With the stellar team of Statice Floral, LMD Productions, Shamane’s Bake Shoppe, Top Hat Entertainment, the details are gorgeous!  Carolyn graciously spoke to the inspiration behind their day, favorite moments, and some parting advice, quoted below.

Picking our favorite memory of the day is tough because the whole entire weekend was just fantastic.  We had an absolute ball,  loved every moment and truly did not stress about a thing (a big thank you to JA Special Events for helping to make that possible). If I had to choose,  I think one of our favorite moments was our first look… Sean and I really want get some photos outside so we had planned to meet up at Chautauqua Park. Little did we know how cold it would be… but we had fun regardless. It was great to have some time together (just us)  before the actual ceremony… Joe & Joyce (Studio JK) were so fantastic and such troopers to endure the zero degree temperatures with us. We absolutely LOVE the shots they got!

My mom & I really wanted the decor to be elegant  & festive with a touch of “rustic” to honor our (Sean & my) love of the outdoors.  During the planning stage, my Mom said she wanted the room to be “magical”.  Which it most certainly was… from the candle lit ceremony, to the gorgeous flowers, the Christmas trees, & the beautiful table settings, it really could not have been more perfect.0686_1208_173826sk  0674_1208_173209jk0672_1208_173014sk  0690_1208_174206jk0648_1208_171039sk  0643_1208_165834sk0660_1208_171750jk

My only advice would be to be present! The best thing that we did was to just enjoy every moment, each other and all of our friends & family.  Stressing and worrying about the details is not worth it (it will all come together!). Take in every wonderful moment in…It goes so quickly… have a blast! It truly was the best weekend of our lives…”
