Jennifer & Andrew’s DIY Country Club Wedding

 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.

Andrew was the perfect prince in a black tux, white bow tie, white vest, and wedding themed boutonniere.

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 a 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!

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.

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.

As for any advice for future couples… Take time to live in the moment during your wedding!

“Where there is love there is life.”

 Most couples reserve their date in our calendars 12+ months prior to their wedding day.

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.
