Wedding Wednesday: Jen & David

David and Jen met in 2009 while attending East Carolina University. During a group assignment for class, a friend of David’s was in a small group with Jen. Since she knew David was interested in Jen, she invited her to lunch one day knowing David would be there as well. The couple hit it off at lunch and David asked Jen on a date for the upcoming weekend, which happened to be Valentine’s Day! The couple has been together ever since.

During a long weekend in Savannah, GA, David surprised Jen with a new Nikon camera. While the couple was out admiring the town and taking photographs, David hid an engagement ring in Jen’s camera bag. David insisted that Jen switch lenses while they were in Forsyth Park knowing that Jen would find the ring underneath!

Their reception took place in the Verellen showroom in High Point, NC. Jen is a designer for the company and knew the showroom would fit perfectly with the theme for their wedding. She’s crazy about anything vintage and antique. Burlap, galvanized lanterns, mason jars, and old springs created a wonderful laid back, southern, vintage feel. Their galvanized metal cake stand was out of this world beautiful! When Jen’s mom dropped it off in the shop prior to the wedding, mass amounts of swooning took place! Their wonderful vintage feel transferred beautifully to their three tier cake. Simple whipped frosting adorned with soft purple and white flowers and finished off with wooden bird toppers created the perfect touch.
