Q and A: Jennifer-Andrew Wedding-Cinnabar Hills Golf Club

Give us a little background on you. How did you meet and start dating? How did you get engaged?

Andrew and I both attended MIT, studied Computer Science, and graduated the same year, but managed to never cross paths over all 4 years of school. We finally met in Las Vegas at an MIT class reunion!

Two years later, while admiring the sunset ocean view from Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, I turned around to see Andrew’s family holding up a giant sign saying “Jenny, will you marry me?” The next thing I know, Andrew is on his knees with a ring proposing to me. Of course I said yes!

Did you work with a certain them or design motif? Please describe in detail why you chose this aesthetic, and how you carried it throughout your wedding.

Just like our rings, we wanted our wedding to be classic, but also uniquely ours. We took the classic wedding elements and then added our own DIY touches. We made almost everything ourselves, including the silk floral, centerpieces, ring pillow, and photo booth.

We even constructed our own corn hole boards and bags as a cocktail hour activity, all painted and embroidered with our names and wedding date. We also love to travel, so we named our tables after places we’ve visited and put pictures of ourselves at each location to label them. Finally, kangaroos are our spirit animal, so of course we had to dress two stuffed kangaroos up in wedding attire to guard our cake table!

How did you decide on your look? Please describe your dress/attire (style, shape, color, fabric, etc.), veil, tie, shoes and accessories. And tell us about your wedding party: What did your bridesmaids and groomsmen wear?

I wanted to feel like a princess, so I had a classic ivory strapless ballgown that featured a full tulle skirt and a crystal belt to accent the waist. I also had a gorgeous cathedral length veil with beautifully detailed scalloped beaded edges. Andrew was the perfect prince in a black tux, white bow tie, white vest, and wedding themed boutonniere. The groomsmen accented Andrew with their black tuxes, black bow ties, black vests, and smaller boutonnieres. The bridesmaids donned matching violet dresses with pink pearl necklaces.

Tell us about your flowers and your bouquet. How did you choose them? Was there any sentimental significance in your choice? What types of flowers did you choose for the bridesmaid bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres?

All of the floral was designed and created by us, including the centerpiece flower balls, cocktail table flowers, boutonnieres, corsages, and bouquets. The arbor at Cinnabar did not have any roses in bloom that day, so my parents added flowers to it to make it pop! We had a mix of roses, hydrangeas, and various other flowers matching our color scheme.

Please describe your ceremony. How did you decorate the space and the aisle? Did you include any traditions? What were your processional and recessional songs?

Cinnabar has a lovely outdoor garden, so it didn’t need much of additional extra decoration. However, we did add colorful flowers to the arbor since the roses were not in bloom. In my DIY kick, I lovingly glued rose petals to an aisle runner in a swirly design and we hung flower balls and tulle along the edges.

My brother, Mike, was the officiant, and we worked with him to make sure that the ceremony was unique, personal, heartfelt, and entertaining. It featured a back and forth with him and Andrew’s sister, describing our serendipitous love story. We also wanted to honor our parents, which we did by handing them roses. We used the traditional processional and recessional songs, and made our exit surrounded by bubbles!

Please describe your reception. Where was it and why did you choose this location? Tell us about the centerpieces, tablescapes, place settings and any other decorations. Did you have any special menu items or signature cocktails? What was your first dance song? How about any additional entertainment, like a photo booth or a cigar bar?

The reception was also at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club – we loved the floor to ceiling windows, gorgeous ceiling, and open floor plan. The centerpieces featured towering vases with water and purple water beads, with tea lights inside to give it a nice glow. Each table represented a location that we’ve travelled to – each table had both a handmade gold glitter table number and a picture of us at that location.

Instead of traditional candle votives, my parents lovingly crafted these cute tea light flowers. We put our wedding favors on the tables, which featured custom wedding Hershey kisses, a fake luggage tag thanking guests for coming, and a key bottle opener. We also had signature cocktails – Andrew’s Yum Yum Coke and Rum and Jenny’s Fairytale Triple Sec and Ginger Ale. Our first dance song was Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur. We also had our own custom photobooth that we made! I wrote the iPad app and constructed the backdrop out of tissue paper flowers and PVC pipes!

Is there any advice you’d like to share with future couples?

Take time to live in the moment during your wedding!
