Jen & C.S.

Here's what you need to know about Jen & C.S.: they love good food, good wine, the outdoors, and each other. Their goal was to create a relaxed atmosphere where their guests could enjoy all of these things.  Set at the incomparable Dunaway Gardens , this wedding was a perfect blend of their tastes -- elegant and beautiful (him), with rustic and natural (her).

Besides blending their styles, the couple also blended their cultures. The rehearsal dinner was held at Alma Cocina to represent C.S.'s Mexican heritage, while the wedding cuisine from Endive was purely southern -- a nod to Jen's South Carolina roots. The ceremony was performed by the bride's brother, and translated into Spanish by the groom's sister. Guitarist Brandon Crocker played some great American classics for the ceremony and cocktail hour, while  DJ Eric Anthony  brought along some Latin favorites to spice up the reception.

They also brought in some of their favorite things including carefully chosen wine selections served from the venue's gorgeous wooden bar (adorned by ever talented Bloomin' Bouquets), a special chocolate cake made with olive oil and sea salt, the couple's favorite dessert from La Tavola Trattoria, and specialty cupcake flavors like creme de menthe and samoas, created by Amy from Sugar Moon Bake Shop.

Congrats Jen & C.S.!
