Yah! Diana and Jeff’s Wedding is up on the blog!
Diana and Jeff are one of our 2020 rescheduled couples. They ended up eloping in 2020 in the midwest but still wanted to celebrate with family and friends locally in Maryland. This wedding is so neat for sooo many reasons.
First off, Diana is a gem. As a previous planner, her attention to detail is unreal. Every aspect of the day was planned out, thought out, and intentional. From her invitations to the florals, to the lighting and food. I remember when she hired us for their wedding, how excited she was about all the beauty and details. This is one of our weddings that we didn’t meet our groom Jeff, until the day of. And what a stud. He’s handsome, sweet, and he sure loves Diana. Now another awesome part of this wedding is the planner. Connie of RaynorShine Events is one of my past brides. She’s amazing, thoughtful, and also very attentive to detail. So the power duo planners were in this from the beginning together, planning and executing all the amazing details and logistics of the day!
The day started off just like most wedding days do… a handful of beautiful women getting ready for a perfect day, and in their case, the girls at an Airbnb on the water, and the guys at the Live Casino hotel.
They met up at the Airbnb for a really incredible first look. I think I personally loved this first look because what sweet information we came to find out was that these lovebirds are expecting! So we know the love is real and it was evident in their first look. Jeff and Diana both shared reveals with parents, Diana with her dad and Jeff with his mom which were both sweet, emotional and so beautiful. We wish I had done this at our wedding.
The rest of the day was packed full of goodness. After getting the majority of photos done prior to the ceremony, we all headed to Kurtz Beach for a waterfront ceremony that included readings and a cross rope tie symbolizing their love and unity.
After they were announced husband and wife, for (the second time!), we stole them for sunset photos and soon after, we got to see their reception space complete and photographed all the details.
Introductions may be one of the coolest parts of the day. Only immediate family members knew Jeff and Diana were expecting. So right before they were introduced into reception, all guests watched a video… at the end, a sonogram showed on the screen. The whole place lost it, cheered, roared, and the reactions were priceless and so special. Diana and Jeff, what a wonderful thing to share on your wedding day.
The rest of the night was just full of fun, dancing, and enjoyment… the goal of their 2021 wedding! Thanks to these two, our family now LOVES Mochi Icecream, especially my 4 year old.
Diana and Jeff, we are so pumped and excited for you guys! Welcome to both the married club AND parent club! You’re going to be awesome parents and we are so excited to see what’s in store for you both!
