Where are each of you from? How did you meet?
John is from Rumford, Rhode Island and Jordan is from Columbia, SC. We met in college at Clemson University working for the theatre on campus.
How long were you in a relationship before you got engaged and married?
Where did your wedding take place?
We got married at Corpus Christi in Lexington, SC and had our reception at 701 Whaley in Columbia, SC.
Why did you choose your venue?
We chose our venue because of the rustic, industrial feel. The walls are very distressed looking which well suited our rustic bohemian vibe.
Who designed your invitations and what was the inspiration behind it?
I designed and drew our invitations in photoshop. I wanted something unique and personal. We both love flowers and I drew them myself, and we like modern/minimal designs so I followed that design route.
How many guests attended your wedding?
We had about 120 people on the day of, though we planned for 200 before the pandemic.
Did your wedding have a theme?
Our wedding theme was modern bohemian.
What was your wedding color palette?
Our wedding color pallet was warm desert tones and neutrals.
What was your makeup style? And who made you up
What was your hair style? And who took care of your hair
What jewelry and accessories did you have? Is there a special story about it?
I wore some white beaded statement earrings and a necklace from my great aunt that she gave me as a gift to wear on my wedding day. I also carried prayer beads that were made from the roses on my aunt's casket who passed away from cancer a few months before the wedding.
Where did you purchase the wedding rings and why did you choose this style
What shoes did you wear ?
What flowers were in your bouquet?
I made my own flowers from faux flowers from Hobby Lobby!
Did you make anything DIY?
I made my bouquet, the bridesmaid's bouquets, the boutonnières, my mom's corsage, my grandma's corsage, the centerpieces for the reception, and several other things.
What kind of music was playing? Did you have a playlist?
We had our friends play live music for our first dance and for about an hour after dinner. They played a lot of very popular music that John and I like as we are big concert goers. After the live music we were supposed to have a DJ. Our DJ canceled at the last minute due to COVID and so John and I made a playlist of songs we knew people would dance to. We played early 2000's classics, some oldies, and several modern indie pop favorites.
How did you choose your wedding cake? Who made it?
We wanted a very unique styled wedding cake and so I designed one that Publix then made. I don't have pictures of it yet.
What is your favorite memory from that day? (I know, it’s hard to pick just one!)
What is one thing you wish you would have known when planning your wedding?
What is your number one tip for building a happy relationship?
Find a partner who brings out the very best in you and you in them. When you bring out the best in each other, you become unstoppable! It also helps you communicate more clearly because you function at your best with that person.
