Jill and Matt :: Married at Thousand Oaks!

Jill and Matt had the most incredible fall wedding! When I think back to their day, I feel joy, love and warmth. I see smiles, laughter, and some very swoonworthy florals and details! Of course, that’s bound to happen when you have a bride with impeccable taste working with Jenn of Modern Day Floral! Jill and Matt planned a gorgeous, glamorous November affair at Thousand Oaks in Grand Rapids. Jill’s style is timeless, and as a bride she was absolutely exquisite. Their color palette was spot-on in navy blue, soft whites, just a touch of peach and silver. It was an honor to be part of their day, and I am thrilled to share their images with you! Starting with the girls and details…

And what do the guys do while the girls are getting glammed up? 

Just a peek at those gorgeous peach and white bouquets. There’s more to come, promise.

The First Look!

{ swoon! }

Oh, the flowers… whites, ivories, peaches, pinks… and pretty ruffly rustic little greens. Le sigh!

And the gorgeous couple, basking in that rare November sunshine ~

The lovely bridal party in navy and gray

One of my favorites of the day. I love the airy, classic, time-stopping feel of this:

Let’s get married!

A sparkler sendoff!

Gorgeous cake and lush details

Peonies and succulents in November? Yes. Heavens yes.

Congratulations again! We love you guys and wish you all the very best. xoxo, Kristen & Jamie
