Jill and her bridal party were an absolute dream to beautify on her wedding day! We highlighted her whimsical blueberry themed wedding with a classic red lip and long, luscious curls. Read on for the charming love story of Jeff and Jill, our featured bride.

“Jeff and I originally met through Tinder. We did not realize right away how much we had in common, but it became quickly apparent that we were both giant nerds who both loved video games and board games. We fell in love easily and quickly, and knew very early on in our relationship that we wanted to get married. We both started playing dungeons and dragons together (I never played before, Jeff was never the dungeon master before) shortly into our relationship, and we play weekly to this day.”

“In July 2017, Jeff proposed on the last night of a family cruise to Bermuda. I am a very difficult person to surprise and he managed to pull it off. Through the engagement period, we built a house together, which was a lot to manage while simultaneously planning a wedding. Jeff and I faced these challenges with all of the grace we could muster, and we have learned that no matter what happens, we will always forgive, support, and love each other, through the highs and lows of our shared adventure.”

“We wrote our own vows, something I will always treasure and hold dear, and both ended our vows with the statement “I like you and I love you”, which was a beautiful surprise on the day of the wedding.”

Testimonials From the Bride

DJ, Photobooth, Emcee – Lights Camera DJ

“Duane has a spectacular sense of humor and we felt like he really understood us as people and what we wanted out of our wedding day. Duane, Kathy, and Kelly helped keep things on track after I derailed our timeline a little bit due to feeling ill later in the day.”

“Kathy and Kelly are so kind and helpful. I really truly love them as people and they, along with Duane, helped me feel calmer and happier on the day of the wedding. Kathy also shot Jeff’s sister’s wedding, and we have loved her since we met her then.”

Hair and Makeup – KissandMakeUp

“You guys totally blew me away with my hair and makeup. I was worried that I was going to look silly or not like a bride, and you guys made me look like a bride!!! Everyone loved my eyelashes and my hair. I have since cut a little bit of length off but I am so glad I decided to wait until after the wedding!”
