Joanne + Jeff at The Allan House: Featured on SMP!

Joanne and Jeff have one of my favorite love stories of all time! They were high school sweethearts. (As in, they attended their high school homecomings and proms together!) After high school, college and life took them in different directions…until they reconnected several years ago through Facebook, when they were able to pick right back up where they left off.

They envisioned an intimate, elegant celebration with their closest family and friends, and The Allan House provided the perfect backdrop. Working together, we designed around an “early spring” palette of lavender and plum. (Which worked out perfectly because we ended up getting a warm, spring-like day for their February nuptials!) Joanne’s style is a bit more whimsical, while Jeff’s is more modern, so we worked to balance the two throughout the space. At the ceremony, lush florals and bistro chairs were paired with groupings of more modern, geometric lanterns and pillar candles. At dinner, guests dined under a ceiling of twinkling lights at long, feasting tables.

A couple of our favorite design details from the day: When we flipped the tent for dinner, the ceremony arbor became the perfect backdrop for their delicious lemon cake. Marquee installed beautiful, blush draping on the stage to frame out the DJ, and Clementine added growing greenery to complete the look and tie the stage in to the rest of the space. The “elevated purple” color palette was perfect for their day–it was at once light and springlike and also romantic and moody.

What we’ll remember most, though, was all the love felt throughout the day. Each guest was truly overjoyed for them and thrilled to be there to celebrate. We also loved that Jeff and Joanne walked down the aisle accompanied by their children (and later danced with them during first dances)! This was such a special day, and we were honored to help bring all of the details together to make it happen.

We are thrilled to have their celebration featured over on Style Me Pretty today! Keep scrolling for some of our favorites, and then click on over for even more pretty.
