Ahhh, I’m so excited to share Janna and Eli’s beautiful New England outdoor wedding in Fairhaven, MA this past Saturday.
They met in college during their freshman orientation and now they are married!! Yay!!
Janna and Eli are both thoughtful, caring, kind and light-hearted. And, they LOVE their sweet kitty Sassafras who was mentioned during the ceremony, toasts and many other times throughout the day.
Janna gave each of her bridesmaids and moms the most thoughtful gifts in personalized bags during their getting ready time. The moms were in tears as they each opened framed pictures from Janna and Eli’s engagement session. Janna also gave them all beautiful jewelry.
From their wedding ceremony:
What makes a marriage?
Perseverance, open communication, effort to keep life interesting, support for one another,
equal partnership, balance, empathy and looking out for one another.
The tears came as Eli’s dad read an excerpt from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s ‘Gift from the Sea’.
There were so many sweet moments from their day and I couldn’t be happier for them.
Janna and her sisters, Ashlie and Kara, did an amazing job with every single detail. They planned and designed the entire day!! The color palette was filled with soft golds, emerald green, and neutrals. When I say every single detail, yes, that includes the cake too.
Janna and Eli, thank you so much for the honor to be part of your day and your lives for the past several months! It has been an absolute joy getting to know you both! Have an amazing time in Maui and feel free to wear no shoes at all!! xo, Shawon
