Sometimes you meet a couple and think, they must have a love story written about them. Well Carly and Jason do, it’s called The Lovely Love Story. So the really short version of the story is that a fierce dinosaur falls in love with a sweet dinosaur who is keen on shopping and they live happily ever after. Okay Jason isn’t really fierce at all, he’s a teacher and Carly… well I have a feeling that Carly is pretty keen on shopping. But aren’t all lovely dinosaurs? Although this love story isn’t really about them, they did read it during their ceremony, which is probably one of the best readings I have ever heard and super cute, just like them. Their love story really goes more like boy meets girl, boy asks girl for her number, she looks at him like he is crazy and many years later he asks her to marry him. Well if you think their little love story is awesome than you are going to be blown away from their wedding story.
Carly has what you call… impecable taste. Like you want to break into her house and steal all of her clothes awesome, especially her wedding shoes. Navy and white stripped J Crew heels, I had major shoe envy. Actually I had major wedding envy! Everything tied together just perfectly. From the navy and white polka dot bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s ties to the stripped ribbon wrapped around Carly’s flowers the style and decor was just amazing. I think I took 20 pictures alone of her bouquet which was made by Eastern Floral along with the stunning flowers on the tables at the reception at San Chez Bistro in downtown Grand Rapids. Oh and don’t even get me started about how gorgeous San Chez is for a wedding reception, exposed brick, fabulous windows, bistro lights, awwww a dream 🙂 I could go on and on about everything but I think I’ll just let you see for yourself. Oh and keep an eye out in the Fall/Winter edition of The Knot Michigan for Carly and Jason’s wedding. Yup that’s right, their wedding along with Katia and Scott’s Camp Blodgett Wedding will be featured as Real Weddings!! I am so excited and happy for both couples, it’s such an honor to have your wedding published! Yay!
Congrats Carly and Jason on a gorgeous wedding day and on being published! I hope you had an amazing time in Europe on your honeymoon! (super jealous by the way)
