Julia is a sweet friend who I met through working with Bloom With Us! She is one of their lead planners and she planned an amazing day for her own wedding with the owner of Bloom- Amy! Julia and Jake actually met on Bumble and had little hints to that throughout their day – check out the honeycomb on their wedding invites!
Jake and Julia were married on a gorgeous day in November at The Booking House in Manheim, PA- such an awesome space! It is industrial but cozy and Julia had a jewel toned color palette throughout the day. She prepped in the beautiful bridal sweet in the morning with her bridal party and Jake’s sweet daughter, Charlotte, who played a huge part in the wedding day! We then took Julia outside to exchange letters with Jake for their “no look, first look”. They read these heartfelt notes and were able to hold hands and we even let them get a couple snuggles in without Jake seeing Julia’s full look!
We tucked everyone away as the sun was setting and guests were arriving for their ceremony which took place in the beautiful second floor of The Booking House. Jake and Julia exchanged personal vows and even included a beautiful moment to acknowledge Charlotte and the blending of their new family. The relationship that Julia and Charlotte have is so beautiful. They sealed their vows with a kiss and walked off into married life together! From there we celebrated outside for a few moments before heading back in to their reception. They shared their first dance, parent dances and had speeches from close family before dining at the most delicious food stations! After dinner Jake and Julia surprised their family with a choreographed dance, cake cutting and delicious desserts. It was a perfect evening! Enjoy this look at Jake and Julia’s wedding day!
