from the photographer… “As photographers, we loved that despite the rain and clouds, Rock and Jenny embraced every inch of July 15th, 2016! We are so honored to have gotten to be a part of this romanic Italian wedding and we are thrilled to share some of our favorite moments from their celebration. Long before Jenny even started planning her wedding day, she had always envisioned an elegant, romantic, yet glamourous setting with gorgeous flowers and decor to match. Jenny’s Italian roots and heritage are extremely important to her. When Jenny and Rock began planing for this day, they knew the historic, Italian designed, Armour House couldn’t be a more perfect fit for their vision!”

“Jenny was drawn toward gold and blush colored accents for her florals and bridesmaid’s dresses. She chose these colors to match the Armour House ambiance and soft romantic vibes for the day. Their flowers were a mix of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and hydrangeas, all Jenny’s favorite blooms. Specifically, for her bouquet, she included anemones, which added a unique touch. Jenny’s gown was everything she had hoped for and a true princess dress. Her gown was designed by Hayley Paige and was completely customized, taking the beaded bodice of one gown and the flowy, flouncy skirt of another to create the dress of her dreams! Her maid of honor, Brittany Tovar of Brittney Tovar Calligraphy helped Jenny design the invitations, escort cards, and numerous signage for the venue. Jenny’s father built a custom-made cross for their ceremony that stood over 10ft tall and was decorated with an array of wildflowers. Not only did this give tradition to their religious roots, but it was a sweet touch that Jenny and Rock will always remember from her father. “

“When we asked Jenny what her most favorite moment of the day was, she said “Being introduced at the reception in front of our family and friends, while cascading down the gorgeous Armour House staircase is a memory I’ll never forget. Our sparkler sendoff was also a memorable moment and turned out magically!” One piece of advice Jenny would give to brides on their wedding day is ‘take a deep breath and just enjoy the day, it goes by so fast, try to take in every moment!! I’d highly recommend investing in a wedding planner to relieve yourself of the details and stress the day-of. Make sure to document in pictures every step of the planning process. This is a great way to look back on the journey!'”
