TIDES ESTATE WEDDING: JUSTIN + JESS

Happy one-month-a-versary to Jess and Justin! I'm so excited to share their gorgeous wedding at the Tides Estate! It was my last full day wedding of the 2013 season, and I couldn't have asked for a better couple or party to end the season with! As you might remember from their engagement session blurb, Jess and I went to high school together so I actually knew a few of the guests at this wedding. It was so fun to see familiar faces, dine with friends, and witness true love all day long! Jess and Justin fully embraced the fall theme without wandering into cheesy territory. I love all of their thoughtful details, including the simple and classy watercolor leaves on their invitations...so pretty! Jess gifted all of her bridesmaids these hand-painted sunflower wine glasses for mimosas on the wedding day!

Ya'll know I love me some "daddy-daughter" first looks, and this is easily one of my favorites! He's so cute!

Jess creatively used a "winery in the Fall" theme at the reception. Justin even helped DIY these centerpieces by cutting the tops of the wine bottles off to be used for holding the table names. I really don't want to even think about how big of a project cutting glass is!
