Dusty blues, pinks, and grays were the color palette for this spectacular summer day. Jenna and Jon’s wedding was a deeply personal and long awaited union that celebrated the blending of cultures and families.
Living in the UK during the pandemic, Jenna and Jon were tasked with multiple delays to their wedding, which was originally scheduled for 2020. Taking these delays in stride and with a bit of humor, they hung a large neon sign that said “Mr. and Mrs. Hutchings FINALLY.”
As an American and a Brit, they paid tribute to their respective countries in myriad ways throughout the day. Each groomsmen wore a morning suit with an American and British flag cufflink (and dinosaur socks – Jenna’s favorite animal!). DJ Michael from Pure Sounds Productions was asked to sprinkle in some UK Garage music and 90’s/00’s American hip hop in the reception playlist.
The Enchanted Florist helped to create Jenna’s dream bouquet and decorated the pergola and reception hall with eucalyptus and a mix of roses, hydrangeas, succulents, larkspur, and blue tweedia. Jenna and Jon chose Della Terra to get married because they loved the natural state of the ceremony and cocktail hour areas. They brought in gold terrariums with fairy lights, eucalyptus, rose gold candles, and blue agate rock table numbers to add some whimsy to the earthiness of the venue.
The couple also bucked a few cultural norms for the reception, starting with a three tiered “cake” that consisted of cookies, cheesecake, and molten brownies. For toasting time, they forwent the champagne in favor of a tequila shot toast and enjoyed a roast of the groom by his two best men, which relied heavily on crowd involvement.
This night was most certainly worth the wait for these two and we wish them a huge congratulations on tying the knot!
