Well it’s no surprise that we love weddings here. But, surprise!!! This is best kind of wedding yet. A whole new twist on DIY for me. And one that I am surprisingly loving! This wedding was a surprise to their guests! Jen and Greg had secretly been planning their wedding for months. Guests thought Greg had invited them to be witnesses to a secret proposal when the tables turned and- Voila! Fooled you! Greeting their guests with a “we’re getting married right now” hello, guests were escorted to an amazing vintage beach ceremony followed a vintage seaside reception. Blue Lane Studios not-so-surprisingly captured every last detail and heartfelt moment perfectly.
From the photographer:
Something that touches my heart so deeply are the emotional reactions to Jen and Greg’s revelation of their plans..so many tears of joy and so much laughter. One reason they wanted to plan their wedding for when they did was so that Jen’s mom could witness and be a part of it. Her mom had been diagnosed with the as yet incurable Sjogrens Syndrome, and it was heartbreaking to think that her mom might not see the day her daughter got married. Greg’s mom was beside herself with happiness, and had already considered Jen as a daughter for years. It was the emotional icing on the cake that they were getting married!
The cottages that Jen and Greg rented from Scruggs Harbor Vacation Rental provided the perfect vintage beach backdrop for their vintage Hawaiian, tikis, and glass decor. Thanks to Blue Lane Studios for choosing to surprise us and share this wedding. Congratulations Jen and Greg!
