We kicked off our 2019 wedding season in March w/ a beautiful wedding at Rhinegeist Brewery for Jaclyn + Alex. Robin McKerrell shared some images on her blog this week + I could not wait to get them on the EFC blog.
Where do I even begin w/ Jaclyn + Alex? When I met Jaclyn for our consultation I asked her if she wanted to have a glass of wine at one of my favorite spots in the city, 1215 Wine + Coffee. Our consultation started off about the wedding + quickly turned into a look into our personal lives, we shared our love of wine + food + then it seems like our friendship took off from there.
With her NYC roots + Alex’s Michigan upbringing it seems like it was fate that we met. Jaclyn wanted to showcase + share some of Cincinnati’s history for all of the out of town guests at an iconic location, but little bits of home were tied in to the day as well. The day was relaxed, casual + effortlessly chic. Did I mention she wore a short wedding dress w/ killer Lou Loubie heels?
With the wine flowing + having Pleasantry serving up a family style meal, this one was for the books! For the florals, we wanted to show off spring, but without it being too garden-like. Greenery seems to be the rage, but Jaclyn wanted there to be minimal greenery in a lot of the design + fun pops of color. She loves yellow + Sunny Meadows Flower Farm sent in some beautiful poppies for her bridal bouquet that were blooming just in time. We sourced as much as we could for this wedding from local flower farms. It’s always been a part of our motto to support local in any way we can for every event we do to help give back to our community + showcase the rich agriculture in Ohio.
A huge shoutout to the EFC team for making every detail perfect on this day! We had a lot of installations in the cocktail area + ceremony space that day + they knocked it out of the park. The designs were stunning + everything I dreamed up for Jaclyn + Alex’s big day.
To Jaclyn + Alex, from clients to great friends, I’m grateful for you choosing EFC for your big day, but even more for the friendship we have built through the process. Congratulations, well wishes + Mazel tov!
