Jaclyn always envisioned getting married at the home she grew up in: a sprawling property with a beautiful villa-style home surrounded by a large fountain, impeccable terrace, magnificent statues, and even a softball field made for the perfect backdrop for Jaclyn and Dionis’ tented wedding.

Like everything with Jaclyn’s wedding, the tent was over the top! An enormous pole tent provided by Aable was adorned with gorgeous chandeliers from All Occasions, a white dance floor from Event Source and beautiful pole draping to finish the look from Designs of Distinction. With such a vast space under the tent, wedding planner and designer, Kirkbrides spent a lot of time creating soft spaces and sumptuous layers of design through lighting, floral decor and beautiful tablescapes. They worked closely with Brandon from Urban Orchid, who ran with the naturally organic inspiration that Jaclyn shared. Mixtures of ranuculus, garden roses, dahlias and daisies decorated the blend of round, square and rectangular tables, all lavishly draped and set thanks to the gorgeous rentals and linens at Event Source. Jaclyn wanted a soft, natural look with intrigue which was achieved using tones of cream, gold and blush – and a cohesive mixture of tabletop rentals. Plush runners of greenery and candles adorned the rectangular tables flanking the dance floor. The team at Rock the House executed various lighting concepts throughout the tent.

Jaclyn designed, printed and assembled her own invitations!  Then she worked with the amazing and talented Emily at Ting Stationery to bring together the wedding day stationery. Jaclyn and Dionis’ dance floor was packed all night thanks to the Greek band Karizma, and no one left hungry either!  In addition to a perfectly curated menu from A Taste of Excellence inspired by the Mediterranean flavor profiles of Greece, there were mounds of traditional Greek appetizers and desserts a la mode, lovingly prepared by friends and family. Topped off by Jaclyn’s delicious carrot cake by Luna! The astoundingly talented Scott Shaw captured all of these details and Valarie of Kirkbrides was awesome enough to share this beautiful wedding with us.  Would you consider a tent wedding?
