Keith & Jenine | A Bold, 60’s Inspired Celebration

Keith & Jenine hired Jayne Weddings & Events to style their wedding, selecting our Event Design package. They came to us with the idea of a Bossa Nova (a popular genre of Brazilian music in the 50s-60s) & 60’s inspired wedding.  After tossing around countless exciting ideas (Keith is a producer if LA so not only did he have some awesome ideas of his own, he was such a blast to work with), we landed on what you’ll see below: bright pops of color, giant white leather palm trees, plenty of leafy greenery, and a custom neon sign to tie everything together!

One of our favorite decor pieces had to be the killer white palm trees framing the ceremony space. It was a nice, subtle nudge to the 60’s theme without taking away from their “I do’s”. Oh, and an amazing photobooth backdrop of green palms and personalized neon sign, we had made just for them. We are incredibly happy with how everything came together to create the perfectly bold wedding Keith & Jenine were hoping for.

Photographed by Tuan B & Co with a one-of-a-kind style that couldn’t have been more perfect for this 60’s inspired day.

Jenine also had some random paper lanterns she wanted us to use but didnt know where. So we added some balloons and greenery and whipped up one heck of a entryway piece to welcome guests. It was a surprise and the bride loved it!

Our Top Picks for Wedding Favors

When it comes to providing favors for your guests, you want to make sure you find the sweet spot between too cheap and too expensive, while also giving something that is useful, interesting, or exciting. When in doubt, provide something that you love to use or would love to receive. We’ve compiled a list of fun favors that we hope will inspire you to come up with your very own unique ideas!

Mini Succulents
Whether in a small pot, teacup, or mason jar, mini succulents are a lovely favor to provide your guests! You can even customize them by writing your initials and wedding date on a tag or ribbon. If you want to take it one step further, you could write a cutesy phrase as well: “Watch Our Love Grow” or “Let Love Grow” are fairly popular.

Popcorn
Providing your guests with food or snacks is always going to be a winner at weddings. If you choose popcorn, you actually have a couple of options, kernels or bags? If you choose kernels, try putting them in a funky jar with a catchy phrase: “Thanks for Popping by!” or “Our Love is Poppin’!” If you choose bagged popcorn, try printing custom stickers with your names and wedding date to put on your bags.

Pickled Veggies
A step up from our popcorn kernel idea above; give your guests a jar of pickled veggies of your choice! Just find some cute mason jars and top with a custom sticker.  For some inspiration, here’s a favor display we put together with custom pickle favors for one of our favorite couples: Sara & Martin.

Cocktail Recipe w/ Tool
If you featured signature cocktails at your reception, think about giving the recipe (if it’s a complex cocktail) as a favor. Throw in a fun cocktail tool for added value (think muddling stick, jigger, or strainer) Tie them together with some ribbon and you’ve got a great favor your guests will be sure to appreciate.

Recipe Cards
Recipe cards are a great favor option, personalize them with your names and anniversary date. You can provide blank cards or fill them up with some of your favorite recipes you’d like to share. Whichever you choose, your guests will think of you each time they cook the dish! Check out these from Magnificent Milestones that we featured on Kelly & Bryant’s day.

Confetti
Maybe you want to give favors that are meant to be used that night or at your reception? One of our brides, Emily, (see Chris & Emily’s full day here!) chose to provide her guests with customized boxes of confetti to throw during their grand exit. This is a super fun way to get your guests involved and ensures that your favors will not go to waste! Plus, confetti always looks gorgeous in photos.

Sweets To-Go
A classic, no-stress favor will always be take home dessert. Simply place plain, or customized take-home boxes on your dessert table at the end of the night and watch your guests load theirs up! Get creative with your boxes to make a big impact. These triangle boxes are too fun!

Kara + Tommy | A Quaint Lakeside Affair

We have a very special wedding to share with you today and it is sure to take your breath away. Kara & Tommy’s wedding day was a simple affair at its core but when combined with their thoughtful details, it became an amazing, lakeside paradise. Kara, a designer herself (Check her out at www.karaburke.com, she does incredible work! She designed our holiday cards and even made an adorable stuffed replica of our pup Lula that sits in Cole’s crib!), put together all of the paper goods, favors, cake toppers and her super cute backdrop. Kara also collected a set of vintage glassware for her champagne toast.

Kara & Tommy’s ceremony took place at their families lakeside Chalet on Mullett Lake in Michigan and their guests viewed the ceremony from canoes—so incredible, right? Kara, Tommy, and their guests stayed in cabins on the lake overlooking the water, such a fun wedding weekend for all!

Enough with the preambles, take a look for yourself at Kara & Tommy’s beautifully quaint summer wedding on the lake. Photographed beautifully by The Colagrossis.

Sarah + George | A Lush Cali-Style Love Spell

People of the world. This wedding is IT. I feel like that is all we should say and just let you get on to the gorg photos by Lets Frolic Together. But we would be remissed if we didn’t tell you that this lovely Chicago couple came to Jayne Weddings and Events to plan and design their West Coast Wedding almost 2 years ago. We had a blast planning their intimate affair featuring a lovely 4 course family style dinner and wine pairing.

Wine pairings you guys, get on it. Your guests will love you even more.

The adorable couple also SANG a freaking song together in lieu of their first dance. They hand wrote a note to each guest as their place card. Our hearts exploded all over the place, such a thoughtful pair.

Ok, I’ll shut up and let you take it all in. Enjoy!

Amy + Ben | Modern Bohemian Affair

We could NOT wait to share this wedding with you! It includes so many of our favorite design elements. Geometric shapes, macrame, bright pops of color, natural light, and more!

When Amy and Ben hired Jayne Weddings and Events for their event design and coordination, they thought they wanted a rustic themed wedding, burlap and more natural elements. After talking to them both, we found out Amy and Ben had some killer style and instead, created a modern take on rustic, something earthy and natural but also bright, cheery and full of love. We were lucky they trusted us to create a wedding that suited them as a couple!

Big thanks to Christian Gideon Photography for these amazing photos!

We absolutely loved the sequin arrows and heart Team Jayne created to lead guests from the street to the venue. As well as the killer blooms from Fleur, and the super tasty and beautiful food from Nico Osteria (yeah, they cater, and its beyond legit)

California Mountain Wedding

Ahhh California weddings. Sorry guys, but there is just something about them. The sunlight, the ease of planning something outdoors, the fresh healthy food, EVERYTHING there has our heart. So we were over the moon when this lovely couple asked Jayne Weddings & Events to create and coordinate their wedding! Thank you for the he lovely photos by Susi Jacobs Photography !

Jenna and Phil are such a fun loving couple, and their wedding was such a blast for guests and vendors! We loved having access to this private estate the day prior to the event. Allowing Jordan to climb their ceremony tree and adorn it with ribbons and for us to get the floor plan and lighting just right.

Compass Floral provided some stunning floral, even floating a few in the pool for the cocktail hour! The comfy cozy lounge areas were set up by Witty Rentals, something the guests really enjoyed when they were tired from dancing. And Mother Nature provided us the most amazing weather and backdrop!
