{ j&j bridals }

Our bride to be, Jessica, and the ever so talented Nick and Signe Adams have given us the go ahead for another sneak peek into J&J's vintage-beach inspired wedding. And now we get to share it with you!

The vintage books pictured above belong to our bookworm bride. These books are few among the many stacks that Jessica has collected and read. When Jessica isn't reading you can often find the j&j duo playing at the beach. So, what's more perfect than a vintage-beach inspired wedding?

James' boutonniere consists of a delicate, ruffled white ranunculus, dahlia buds, and blue hydrangea. It has been wrapped with an earthy burlap.

Notice anything different about this bouquet? If you look closely, you will notice we have incorporated wooden flowers into this peony packed bouquet. They are similar looking to the ruffly edged white ranunculus. The stems are wrapped in a plush velvet ribbon and a simple knot of burlap has been added. Again, just another fun element to coordinate with our vintage-beach theme. Another, big thank you goes out to Nick and Signe Adams, of Nick Adams Photography. They have gone above and beyond with capturing all the details and elements of Jessica and James' bridal photos. The BIG day wedding photos soon to come...


{ j&j are tying the knot }

We are so excited to introduce Jessica & James...Jessica is the daughter of Bloomers owner Kathy, and James is the camera shy fiance.
We are going to tantalize you with a sneak peek of their engagements. J&J met up with the amazing Nick and Signe Adams, owners of Nick Adams Photography, for a day packed full of photography, fun, and of course LOTS of laughter.
Nick and Signe introduced us to the fabulous idea of the date bouquet. {And, you know we LOVE any excuse to use more flowers} What is a date bouquet? Well, it's a wonderful way for the groom-to-be to show his arm candy how much he loves and adores her. James surprised Jessica with not one, but three date bouquets that Nick and Signe expertly incorporated into J&J's engagement photos. 10 points for James!
The photo shoot had all intentions of heading to the beach for some water packed action. Due to inclement weather, a new plan was in order. That's where Nick and Signe's creativity came through...{what's new?} They came across an abandoned building with a retro inspiration. Nick and Signe definitely had their work cut out for them...did I mention J&J's adorable 2 year old Boston Terrier, Toby? Well, he's a bundle of energy and has a mind of his own but as you can see, he loved posing for the camera and enjoyed the spotlight. In fact, Toby enjoyed it so much he has been asked to be the Best Dog for J&J's wedding.
We can't thank Nick and Signe enough for all their inspiration, sensational sense of style, and of course their patience.
You will definitely want to stay tuned for more pictures, including bridals and the soon to be wedding!
