Jenna & Jesse’s DIY Vintage Book Themed Wedding Day

This wedding, of Jenna and Jesse, is kind of making me re-think my own celebratory decisions like “Why didn’t I have a FERRIS WHEEL at my wedding!?”.  Seriously, how much awesome is that? Lots of awesome, I say!

There are so many wonderful details in this wedding and the love that Jenna and James have for one another shines through in every shot. The photographer, Tiffany J, has known Jenna since the day she was born which adds to how wonderfully personal and special this day is.

Tiffany J tell us: Jenna & her bridesmaids spent so much time making the day beautiful by handcrafting customized details to make their day special, personalized & memorable. Jenna & Jesse both love reading, so books were a key element in this beautiful October wedding.

About her wedding day, Jenna says:

My vision for the day was obviously vintage books & anything rustic. We wanted books to be incorporated as much as possible without it being ridiculous. One of the bridesmaids made the card box & the ring bearer boxes out of cardboard books. We made the “I’m here for the cake” sign, book page overlays & painted & distressed the mason jars. We made all of the paper fans & cut out the book page hearts that were on the aisle. We made the pillow covers, the paper book mark favors, the mason jars that had his parents candles in them and the place cards. We tried to do as much DIY as possible. The day of the wedding I was so excited to see all of the projects all come together. We had so many vision s & to see it all come together was amazing! It was exactly how I imagined it!! It was so emotional to see all of our hours of work, painting, folding & gluing pay off. All of the months before the wedding so many friends had complained that I could never hang out & was always too busy with the wedding. To see their faces when they saw everything was so funny to me…most of them came up to me & said they understood why I was so busy all the time.

It was so exciting to finally be married! We planned the wedding for over 2 years and it started to feel like it was never going to happen.
