Style Me Pretty Feature … April 6, 2010

We are BLUSHING … red rosy cheeks and all …

Remember our POST from a few days back in regards to Andy Jackson with Portal Films???  Well, that stunning short film of our lovely couple {Regan and Micheal} is being featured today on Style Me Pretty!!!

Style Me Pretty – Kentucky Wedding by Portal Films

Jacki and I couldn’t be more excited or thrilled for how happy Regan and Micheal were about their wedding! We feel that their true emotion for each other, their journey and their glorious wedding day couldn’t be put in a better format than what Portal Films has shown in this short film.  Seriously, you will need your tissues … {I still get teary eyed and I’ve seen the film a hundred times}.

Please go on over to Style Me Pretty and check it out

As a side note, but just as important, we are honored to have been chosen to be a Little Black Book Member for the second year in a row {2009, 2010 and counting}.

Reagan and Michael’s Wedding Film … March 26, 2010

Portal Films … enough said!    Andy Jackson with Portal Films is simply AMAZING!   {let me set the scene real quick}

Regan and Michael’s wedding was simply stunning and we enjoyed so much working with the two love birds for the whole 14 months.  Their October 3, 2009 wedding was held at the quaint Shaker Village {a truly gorgeous backdrop}.  Regan and Michael currently live in Pittsburgh, PA and 85% of their guests were from out of state, so they wanted to show everyone true Southern Hospitality – which I think they achieved ten times over.

{pretty pictures and special details to come in a post soon}

Regan and Michael truly embraced this time in their lives and wanted to capture their feelings, style, and emotions on film so that they could cherish and remember for a lifetime.  They were able to achieve this with Portal Films

Below is a short four minute film that Andy was kind enough to put together so that we could share with the you.  So, please grab a tissue, turn on your volume and embrace what you are about to see and feel from this simply amazing film …

Winter Weddings Warm Our Heart … November 23, 2009

It’s cold outside, warm in the office, we have a pine tree candle lit and we are in the CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!  Christmas is less than 6 WEEKS away … can you believe it?!?!  Where has the year gone?  Time flies when you’re having fun … I guess that’s why this year has been a whirlwind!

Today in the office we have taken a poll and its time to start christmas shopping (yay!!!) since none of the ladies at Kentucky Bride has started! As we are getting in the Christmas spirit, others are ready for their Winter Wedding and we will not leave you out in the cold…(haha!)
Here are some of our favorite Winter Wedding Ideas…

*Using the color WINTER WHITE

*Hot Chocolate

*Faux fur wraps

*Mistletoe (how cute is that?)

*Christmas Trees

*Pictures in the snow (1. It must snow 2. You must be brave enough to go out in the snow. 3. Photos with snow are breathtakingly beautiful)

* Having pashminas for guest (or for Bridesmaid gifts)

* A WARM  honeymoon destination

Winter Weddings are beautiful! If you plan to get married this winter or dream of having a winter wedding, please tell us your ideas … we would love to hear them!

Sauer – Cutshaw Wedding … thank you September 28, 2009

Filed under: jacki and jaimeson,Wedding — jackiandjaimeson @ 10:55 am
Tags: , , , , , ,

On Saturday, September 5, 2009 we had the pleasure to be a part of Jenny Sauer’s and Quincy Cutshaw’s wedding.  Let me give you a little background on this couple … they are both uber talented {Jenny owns her own company called Three Sheets 2 the Wind (don’t you just love the name) and Quincy is an engineer, who can figure anything out (he made a pully system for chandeliers they used during their reception)} … they are both super kind to each other {if one of them interrupted the other, they would automatically apologize, how sweet!} … and they were both dedicated to making their wedding day very unique and special {Jenny actually took the hard job of drinking all the wine for the bottles that was used for the centerpieces, now that’s commitment}. 

Jenny and Quincy, both, were very involved with their wedding planning.  While we were there to help make suggestions and give some “logistics”, this was their BABY!  They have amazing taste and if they don’t see something that fits what they want, they create it, build it, make it – LOVE it!

Here is a short list of things that Jenny and Quincy made for their wedding …

* Jenny added a beautiful sash to her dress

* They hand crafted their own invites with screen print and laser printing together

* They made three amazing chandeliers for their reception

* And so much more in small details ….


Some amazing features of their wedding …

* We used real burlap for their tablecloths {it was fabulous and not too rough for the guests}

* We used one complete song for their processional … and everyone, including the children, were where they were suppose to be … it turned out perfect! {oh, and the song was only 4 minutes long ….}

* Jenny’s Dad, who is also very talented, created their cupcake stand … it was fabulous!

Now onto some photos … I am only going to show four, for a few reasons {first, this wedding will most likely be featured in jacki allen’s Kentucky Bride Magazine so I don’t want to give everything away AND the amazing Amy Campbell with Angela Anderson Photography was the photographer and our picutres just won’t even compare}

This first photo is of where they had their cocktail hour, outside on the terrace at Talon Winery

Lastly, here are the guests enjoying photos of the newlyweds and signing a scrapbook from the photobooth {see the amazing Amy in the background with her cameras … can’t wait to see her photos}

I will end with this lovely letter from the bride …

“Thank You! I was so impressed with the amount of service provided by you and your team on our wedding day. Quincy and I were so happy and felt that the day went off without a hitch!  Everything was perfect … I am not just saying that because I was surprised by how well everything came together. I don’t know what we would have done without you!”

Richards wedding … thank you September 8, 2009

Filed under: jacki and jaimeson,Wedding — jackiandjaimeson @ 12:56 pm

We planned and coordinated our last “summer” wedding of the year on August 29, 2009 to the wonderful couple Katherine Richards and Nathan Snyder.  The wonderful couple lives in Virgina, but wanted to have a Kentucky wedding where Katherine grew up.  Katherine is into the Arts and Theatre, so Lexington Arts Place was the perfect choice for her.

Here are just a few shots taken by the lovely jacki allen

from these few photos, you can probably get a feel for this wedding … simple, white with a hint of blue, very minimal … love it!

A few days after the lovely wedding, we received this in the mail …

” Dear Jaime,

Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding perfect! We appreciate all the work, effort and time you did and gave for us – Please thank the rest of the crew – you all make a fantastic team.  Everything was just gorgeous. Thank you.


Carson {mother of bride}”

… blushing … we love to get these sweet little notes in the mail – they really do make it all worth it!  Congratulation Mr. & Mrs. Snyder – and THANK YOU for letting us be a part of your special day.

celebrate your love …
