Alexis & Abdul - November 1

We always love when clients give us an opportunity to try new things, and Alexis & Abdul certainly did! They were married here at CJ's on absolutely gorgeous fall day in November, and their 75 guests were treated to an evening completely tailored to the couple's story and style.

Alexis was kind enough to share this feedback with us and we're delighted that everyone enjoyed their time here at CJ's so much!

"CJ's was the perfect place for our small, intimate wedding. Everything was so perfect! Amy was an amazing coordinator! She gave us some really unique ideas to incorporate and was so helpful every step of the way. They were so flexible with our needs (and the spontaneous needs of our family), they truly went the extra mile! Amy even spent extra time working with our first time officiant (the grooms brother) to make sure that he knew what he was doing. I would highly recommend CJ's and Amy's concierge service for anyone looking for an intimate setting for their wedding. - Alexis & Abdul"

The bridesmaids wore handmade kimono's in reference to the country in which Alexis and Abdul met, Japan. The bouquets and ceremony arrangements by Caprice at The Enchanted Florist also reflected this inspiration by using large glossy Tea Leaves, which I really loved! Such a dramatic look.

(giving our first time officiate a few pointers!)

Another special touch was the hand-written marriage certificate signed by all the attendees of the wedding in the Quaker tradition to show their support and consent. A beautiful keepsake for the new family!

They and their guests danced the night away to the Big Band swing provided by Blue Tone Music and I've rarely seen the dance floor so packed! It was so fun to watch!

Before cutting the cake, Alexis and Abdul changed into their second outfits for the evening, and Alexis looked so beautiful in her royal blue saree.

Of course we were so delighted to have Zach & Jody Gray of Gray Photograph with us again and want to thank them for sharing these amazing pictures with us!

(And for those of you who may recall our previous blogpost, this is indeed the family behind a great custom jewelry line called Adornments.)
