Our Rebrand & New Website!!


Wow. I am so excited to share with you our new look and website! I actually can not believe I even get to write this blog post. I started Jayne Weddings & Events about 5 years ago. It was nothing more then a dream and a hobby. I was still working full-time and just wanted a creative outlet. Over the years, I have met so many adorable couples, worked with tons of killer vendors and formed amazing friendships. I have to pinch myself to believe that this happened, this is my career!  At this point, I couldn’t imagine life without the whirlwind that is Jayne. It soaks up 95% of my thoughts and I’m always thinking about the next move, next project, next item to spray paint! Some days, its doesn’t even feel like a job, but just who I am.

I have been talking, plotting and working on this re-brand for over year. I really wanted it to be absolutely perfect before I shared it with all of you. The old Jayne Weddings & Events was soft and feminine. Full of pastel colors and beachy pics. This is who I was at the time. Since then, like all things, my design atheistic and business has changed. I am totally obsessed with sharper angles and brighter contrasts. I love mixing modern minimalism with homespun pieces. Our team has grown to more then just me and a glue gun, and in 2015 we will launch our window design services!   This is what the new Jayne will reflect. Bigger, bolder, hopefully even better then before! The new logo is something I created to reflect all the different pieces that make up the greatest love – as well as an amazing event. We will always focus on meaningful design, no matter the style, that is something that will never change.

It is with tears in my eyes, that I proudly present to you, the New Jayne Weddings & Events!!! We hope you love it as much as we do!

Andrea + Mike | A Big, Bright, Balloon Filled Wedding!

THIS wedding. It combines so many items that we absolutely love. Giant round balloons with glimmering tassels, gold glittery table numbers, a head-over-heels Bride and Groom, the sunniest, brightest, flowers, an outdoor ceremony… and the sign-age, you must see this sign-age! The couples friend (who now is providing items to other lovely couples!!!) made all these gorg watercolor items! I about died when I first saw them, seriously, they are super legit! We were so thrilled when this couple reached out to us for Month of Coordination in Chicago. The couple had so many amazing ideas and we were so excited to be able to assist them in creating his fun filled wedding day!

Happy Monday Folks! Enjoy the eye candy!

Emmy Fashion | Recap 2014

We are super excited to be starting a new section to our blog – FASHION! The fact that we haven’t already covered this is absolutely mind blowing. While we love shopping and all things fabric, Jayne Weddings & Events has decided to bring on writer and blogger  Christine Cottrell ! She will be sharing the latest trends, hot splurge/steals and so much more! To get us started off, she is helping us sift thru all those red carpet looks seen at this past weeks Emmy Awards! 

Take it away Christine!

Did you catch the Emmys? For fashion’s sake, we hope so. We’ve created our very own awards for the most notable, pinable gowns of the night. We sure wish Rent the Runway could get their hands on these dresses!

The “most fab crop top that God has ever put on this earth” award goes to Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano -


The “making maternity glam” award goes to Hayden Penettiere in Octavio Carlin. (We actually might get pregnant just so we can wear this…might) -


The “nude dress that’s even sexier than your Birthday suit” (and honestly, that’s hard to come by) award goes to Taylor Schilling in Zuhair Murad -


This year we were delighted to see a whole new category. For “being able to “walk the red carpet” and “down the aisle” in the same dress” (and in that order, of course) award goes to Kristen Wiig in Vera Wang, Lucy Lui in Zac Posen, and finally, Syd Wilde in we don’t know, but it’s smoking!


The “O.M.G I want that back and tail” award goes to Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier -


There was a tie for the “So vogue” award. It goes to Uzo Aduba in Christian Siriano, and Kate Walsh in Stephane Rolland Haute Couture -


The “I want to hate it, but I think I love it, but I still can’t decide” award goes to Alicia Quarles in Dany Atrache -


And last but certainly not least, the “secretly slutty yet sophisticated” award goes to Debra Messing in Angel Sanchez -

Sarah + Dan | A Wedding in the Vines

Sarah and Dan met in Chicago. They work in the Midwest. Their families are from the Midwest. So why a California wedding? Well once you check out these photos you will totally get it. Sarah owns an amazing wine bar (the ruby tap) it was thru her connections there that she stumbled upon the most beautiful wedding venue she had ever seen! She always knew she wanted a destination wedding, but after seeing the glorious  Gundlach Bundschu Winery, that was that.
Since they were traveling from Chicago, they chose to keep the decor simple. They wanted to show off the vines and lovely sunset. They chose pretty lush and low centerpieces and super fun burlap and gold table runners. We placed all of the guest tables in two really long lines that helped create the most intimate feel amongst the vines. Dan, the groom, made all of the paper goods for his lovely bride. We chose to clip the placecards on to their wineglasses to avoid the wind blowing them away. The bridesmaids all wore anthropologie dresses and they had the cutest ring bearer!


Many Chicago vendors traveled out West for this wedding, so it truly was a midwest party with a Californian backdrop!

Special thanks for Jeffery Marini for the amazing photographs! We are totally in love with his editorial style!
