It Sure is Monday...

I kid ya'll not I got in the car this morning and (my pre-set being on XM's Prime Country haha) Mark Chestnut's "It Sure is Monday" came on. Normally I don't mind Monday's- start of a new week, Bachelor wine night to look forward too, etc. but today I woke up around 4am with a POUNDING sinus headache. The kind of sinus headache where you literally hit yourself and try to apply pressure to remotely feel better. (so much for sleep) I'm thinking it may be the weather changing from cold to warm so much Claritin has been consumed so let's pray that helps. 

Anyway, enough with my Monday rant, today I wanted to share with ya'll a super cute local magazine and blog that decided to feature our wedding! I love that it just came out since we are about to hit our "married for 6 months mark" and it is so fun getting to relive the big day. Hill City Bride decided to do a print feature with a Q&A with me about planning an 'at-home wedding' and also did a blog web feature. If you want ya'll can check it out here:

Everyday Wedding – Seth & Jessi
02.21.14 by Jennifer Posted in Couples,Weddings

I am so excited to share today’s wedding with you! Some of the photos that I will be posting in the next few weeks are ones that I have been holding on to for two reasons… one was because I was saving posts for when the new blog went live, and the other is because I was waiting for the wedding issue of clutch to go to print! I know many of you don’t have an actual copy of our wedding issue in hand yet, but until then you can head here to take a peek at a copy online.
This lovely wedding takes place at the home of the Jessi’s parents, and believe it or not (I love this part!) Jessi’s parents were married under that exact same tree. I wonder how much the tree has grown in that amount of time? The pops of yellow and aqua coupled with the perfect weather make this wedding so bright and happy. Jessi actually picked aqua because Seth jokingly asked for a hue that would make his “baby blues” pop, and the lemon color was the perfect accent.
Personalized details such as the letters on the tree and the monogrammed necklace (what a great gift idea for a bride with her new initials!) add a special touch to this outdoor wedding photographed by Visions by Heather Photography. I hope it makes you swoon as much as I did when I saw it! To let you in on a little secret, Jessi herself is also a wedding planner, and her own wedding showcases her lovely talents. Enjoy this stunning wedding today!

As a sidebar, we asked Jessi a few things that her family had to do in order to get their home ready for a wedding. I know what I have to do at times just to get ready for company let alone a full wedding. Here are some of the things that they did to get their home and property in order:
  • repainted the exterior
  • landscaped both the front and back yards
  • installed new gravel
  • refinished the driveway
  • roped off fields for parking
  • planted bushes, flowers and trees that would bloom in time for the August wedding
  • researched when to cut the grass so it would be the perfect height
If you would like to read more about the story of Jessi and Seth’s wedding just click here to see our most recent wedding issue where their wedding appears on pages 34-37.
