Jennifer and Ryan’s Colorful Wedding
The wedding of two artists always guarantees introduction something special and unique to their wedding ceremony. And Jennifer and Ryan’s wedding of two ceramic artists that took place in San Antonio exceeded all the expectations. Every single detail of this summer wedding is carefully thought-out starting from the handcrafted ceramic place-cards-vases that were everywhere.
I guess neither Jennifer nor Ryan will ever forget about the feel of intimacy throughout the entire day. Jennifer and Ryan designed and custom made every wedding detail themselves, what made the entire ceremony very sweet and personalized.
We are both ceramic artists and we hand made porcelain bowls as favors for each of our guest. Jennifer also made the chihuahua bride and groom wedding cake topper. We also made ditsy floral covered mason jars for table lighting. Friends and family helped with cutting fabric flags for the alter and love and aloha bunting. A major project for the wedding was the 1,001 origami paper cranes. It symbolized good luck and Ryan’s mom folded almost all of them herself! We had a party at our house and had friends and family string all of them. We used them to decorate the walls of the chapel.”
During the venue Jennifer and Ryan decided to bend the rules a bit and spend some time with their guests instead of taking pictures. So, that morning they first met before the ceremony in order to take the pics beforehand.
The apparel definitely deserves our attention: groom opted for the khaki suit worn along with the blue shirt and an orange bow tie. As for the footwear, he wore the brown classic shoes with the white and orange socks that were sticking out once in a while. The bride chose the plain dress in cream shades with the frills. The entire look was complemented with the orange bouquet and the headpiece.
We got married on the historic grounds of the Southwest School of Art and wanted the feeling of our wedding to match the old charm of the campus. We wanted a small, intimate gathering of close friends and family that was DIY, vintage, colorful and whimsical. We really tried to have everything have a personal touch.”
Everyone asked us about color schemes every time we talked wedding. We love color and pattern so much that we couldn’t just limit it to a two color scheme. We kept the eclectic, whimsical theme consistent with lots of patterned papers and fabrics.”
Newlyweds gave advices to the brides and grooms on wedding planning:
We really wanted to enjoy the wedding day and not worry about anything. Ryan and I did our research and found vendors (some were even friends!) that understood our style. We chose vendors and friends that we trusted to help make the day special. A friend married us, good friends were our videographers, our friend made our rings, we knew the band – it was important to have a personal connection to everyone at our wedding. We told them to do what they do best and after that left it up to them!”
