Lavender and Gray

Alcohol. Because no great love story ever started with someone eating a salad.

In this case, with Jennifer and Ron, you could say alcohol played a small part in their first encounter. They met at October Fest in Hickory in a beer garden. She had no idea who he was, and yet he came up to her randomly and kissed her while she was eating a funnel cake, listening to music, and crying. I’m not even going to lie. That’s something pulled straight out of a fairy tale except its cake instead of a lost slipper. He thought he could cheer her up with a kiss. No one likes to see a damsel in distress. A Prince has to swoop in and sweep her off her feet and I would say Ron did just that. They didn’t talk for several years after the festival and ended up reconnecting four years ago in 2013.

After that magical encounter of when they first met, Ron had to keep up the fairy tale aspect of their relationship with an equally exciting proposal. I can’t think of a better place to get engaged than on the beaches of Cancun, Mexico. Surrounded by palm trees, crystal clear blue water, gorgeous white sand, and warm sunshine. Needless to say, the sun had a little competition as to who shined brighter. Was it the new bride-to-be or her flawless princess cut engagement ring?

Jennifer and Ron got married with us at Dennis Vineyards on September 10, 2017. They chose to have it at a beautiful vineyard to try and relive when they first met at the beer gardens except beer turned into wine. Not a bad trade if you ask me.

When Jennifer first started walking down the isle to the gazebo where her future awaited her, her smile and happiness rivaled the sun itself. With her flowing white A-Line gown from David’s Bridal everyone was in awe of just how beautiful she was. The flattering sweetheart neckline was accented with a pearl necklace and pinned up hair with long loose curls down her back. Her natural makeup look, sparkly eyes, and burgundy lips were stunning. Mr. Jarvis, you are a very lucky man.

The gazebo was adorned with purple and white tulle. On the two middle columns were huge floral pieces that framed the Mr. and Mrs. during the ceremony. It adds a simple and gorgeous backdrop to all of their photos that they had taken. Jennifer chose her colors based on the fact her future hubs told her she wasn’t allowed to use pink. That is considered more of a “girly” color to most men, so I see where he is coming from. Instead she chose different shades of purple including Lavender. It turns out Lavender is Jennifer’s grandmothers favorite color. What a sweet and subtle gesture to the bride’s grandma.

I just want to wish the two of you a long and happy life together. Now it’s time to feast your eyes on some of the beautiful photos from their special day!
