Jay and Jayne’s wedding was the best example of community I could imagine: friends and family all contributing their musical talent, sharing their baking skills, and helping to set up decor. Jayne wore two dresses from Brides for a Cause, one of which was altered by her mother, who added rainbow tulle underneath.
The Plant at Kyle was the perfect backdrop for this DIY wedding, where friends, family, and combining Jay’s east coast Jewish traditions with Jayne’s Texas backyard sensibilities, were the themes of the day. I especially loved the old photos of each bride’s families used as table centerpieces, with labels describing their relationship to Jay or Jayne. The entire wedding like a family reunion, but bigger, and with vegan BBQ catered by Wheatsville Coop!
Everything about this day was laid-back and happy. It rained that afternoon, but luckily it only sprinkled at the end of the ceremony before we had a short downpour during cocktails, where everyone was comfortably sipping drinks under a roof.
Toasts were heartfelt, and Jay and Jayne’s friends performed at the start of the reception, singing requests and even a little bit from Hamilton (no surprise there, the two met doing community theatre, and many of the guests were performers too).
I can’t imagine a better, more emotional and cozy celebration for these two ladies whose idea of a perfect engagement session was to be comfortable and at home with their cats. Meow!
Congratulations again to Jay and Jayne!
