I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

If you’re anything like us over here at Grey Likes Weddings, you’re in the midst of a MAJOR city crush on Charleston. It’s basically the most adorable city ever—the water, the architecture, the cobblestone streets, and THE COLORS! It’s filled with buildings in the perfect palette of pastels—seriously, who does’t love a cotton candy pink building?? So, we were obviously thrilled when Decorus Photography sent us this super sweet Charleston engagement shoot. Katie and Jay could not be any cuter in the most photogenic city ever. You’re gonna love this one!

How we met:

Jay was working at the corporate office of a bank in Tampa FL and I was a receptionist at a law firm. One of his coworkers was my good friend and she happened to overhear him telling another coworker that he was recently single. She rushed back to her desk and messaged him that she knew someone perfect for him (spoiler alert: it was me). She started showing him photos of me and telling him about me which got him interested. She then began to text me with photos & facts about him. That day happened to be my 24th birthday so she gave Jay my number and the first thing he texted me was Happy Birthday with a bunch of cute emoticons. We met up a few days later in person and while I at first thought he didn’t like me after all, I later found out he was just super nervous around me! He started coming to my work every day for lunch & even sent me a bouquet of flowers one day when I was feeling down. We started dating about a month later on Friday, July 13th. We’ll have been together for 4 years this July.

How he proposed:

We’re wedding photographers in Charleston SC but we booked a wedding at Disney World and decided to spend a day at the parks with our friends since we hadn’t gone in over 2 years (we used to have annual passes when we lived in Tampa and went all the time). I was super excited for this trip because Disney is such a special place to me and I was really happy when it started to become a special place for Jay. We invited our friends Krissi & Toni to come, and Toni is a photographer too.

The day before the proposal, we pass by the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney and we go inside. Right in front of the doors are those matching “I’ll be your Mickey” “I’ll be your Minnie” couples shirts. I have to say, we are NOT the matchy-matchy same shirt wearing kind of couple, but Jay said “Oh these are cute. We should get them.” And I just looked at him like he had 7 heads and said “Uh, okay”. But we continued on. He found 2 more shirts he liked for himself and said “Gee which one should I get? One of these, or the couples shirts?” I told him, what ever you want! I’ll wear the couples shirt, but if you want one of these, that’s fine too!

He chose the couples shirt. This went over my head completely though I was confused by him wanting them.

Day of proposal: We are at my FAVORITE place on the planet – Disney! As soon as we walk through the turnstiles, Toni says “Lets get a photo in front of the train station!” And from there, we’re getting photos everywhere! Jay had told Toni to take tons of photos of us so I wouldn’t be suspicious at the location of choice where he was doing it. We had just ridden my favorite ride, the Haunted Mansion, which is located next to Rapunzel’s tower. Rapunzel is my FAVORITE princess. The second time I ever watched that movie, it changed my life. It’s a very special movie to me, and Jay knows this. He is the Eugene to my Rapunzel.

Toni asked if we wanted some photos in front of it and I said “hell yes!” because I only have an iPhone shot of me in front of it from 2 years ago, alone. That trip, Toni & Krissi were with us too!

So anyway, so we take some smiling at the camera shots, and then Toni instructs us to face each other and kiss. This was the sign for Jay to know that Toni was ready to get it.

Suddenly, Jay pushes me away and takes my hands and he says “You know I’ve been wanting to marry you for a long time now” and I see him get down on one knee…and I cover my face…and then I kind of blacked out I think! I know I cried. I remember him telling me that I was making HIM cry. I uncover my face and I don’t see the ring, but I take what ever is in his hand on impulse and I lean down and kiss him! That’s all I remember!! I didn’t even say Yes!

It wasn’t until after we moved from the tower that I finally looked at the ring – it was gold with a purple amethyst stone, Rapunzel’s colors!! It was perfect. Jay had to inform me that it was just a prop ring. He knew I wanted an art deco ring because he’s SNEAKY and a few months ago had our friend/former bride/fellow Disney nerd Lisa make a post about Disney engagement rings on Facebook and tagged me and a few others in it for opinions! I had said “While I love the Rapunzel ring and wouldn’t say no to it, I’ve had my heart set on an antique ring!” The next day, we popped into an estate store to get my ring size and Jay found this GORGEOUS 1920’s diamond & emerald ring! It’s so perfect for me.

You guys! This European opulence-inspired styled shoot, designed by The Styled Soiree and captured by Sara Lynn Photographic and DaCosta Films Films is so gorgeous! The tome was influenced by the bucolic castle setting of Cherokee Ranch and Castle. Rich textures and luxurious fabrics added to the venue’s existing opulence while natural elements of marble and wood added a modern, organic twist. Guided by the bridal suite, a dusty French blue was the main color inspiration for the shoot, married with pops of pale peach and blackberry. The ethereal film photography of Sara Lynn adds the perfect timeless European quality to the gorgeous inspiration. We know you’re going to love it!

We’re loving Alexia and Sam’s delightful outdoor wedding and celebration at a private residence in Santa Paula, CA. Designed and planned by La Fleur Weddings & Events, the floral-driven details are absolutely beautiful—especially the gorgeous pink and green ceremony arch by florist Forage Florals and the tiered, floral-lined cake by Sweet Lady Jane. The white, rustic details of the rentals and tablesettings are a nice compliment to the breathtaking scenery and we’re obsessing over the tiniest of details—the little local oranges on the table. Lucky for us, Jennifer Fujikawa Photography, was the lady behind the lens capturing these gorgeous images.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We think all the personal touches we added to the wedding made it so special. We got married at Sam’s parents’ place in Ojai, which right away I think slated the event as a very homey and personal gathering. We wanted to make sure guests felt comfortable and ready to celebrate with us.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it?

I must have gone to at least 7 different wedding gown stores (in combinations of: mom, with a bridesmaid, with my mother-in-law). I finally decided to go by myself and really see how I felt about the dresses without anyone else’s opinion and ended up going to a bridal store in Glendale called Lovella Bridal. I tried on a dress that I had tried on at two other stores (unknowingly), but because she “pinned” me into the sample dress well enough to get a better vision of how the dress in my size would look, I knew it was my dress. It was a Martina Lliana dress that I took a chance on and got with sleeves that I couldn’t try on, but it ended up being perfect! It had a huge train we had to pin, and I’m actually proud that it got so dirty in the end. I had a blast.

What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We really wanted to make our wedding feel like it came from our hearts, so we did a lot of little personal touches! All the signs were handmade by me and my bridesmaid, Elise. My mom made tiny jars of her marmalade jam that we gave out as favors (with local Ojai oranges), we had photos of the older generations of our families at their weddings, and our escort cards were photos of us at the ages that matched the table numbers that we printed out in polaroid templates and hung up on strings for people to find their seats. I’m also pretty proud of our cake topper that pretty much encompassed us as a couple: the topper is very classic from the front, just a porcelain bride and groom. But when you look at the back, the bride is sneaking a butt-grab! No one even noticed, it was our little secret.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The dance floor! As soon as the “first dances” ended and that first song came on, the dance floor FLOODED with people! It was so fun to see people let loose after all the scheduled parts of the wedding/reception. And as a couple, it was the first dance. It was definitely the point where we both took in the fact that we had just gotten married and really took a moment for ourselves.

Tell us how you met and got engaged!

We met through a mutual friend while I was studying theater at UC Santa Barbara. We were in a group setting and I think we said like two words to each other, but I felt like we kept looking at each other. So after the party, we both  (unknowingly) had asked our mutual friend about each other. We started dating, moved to LA together, and 5 years later, Sam asked me to marry him while we were doing a mini-vacation at the Bacara resort in Santa Barbara (full circle!).

Bringing in Bows & Arrows for the floral, having Jessie’s Girls as our live band (they were a highlight of the night!), and The Grand Bevy for freshly made craft-cocktails (this was a must at our wedding!)

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in high school and started dating our junior year. He took me on a surprise trip to Nevis Island, staying at The Four Seasons, beach-front, for Valentine’s weekend 2014. We arrived the night before Valentine’s Day, so the day of he took me on a picnic to “Lovers Beach” which is a private beach on the island. We drank white wine and walked down to the end, where he got down on one knee and proposed. The rest of the trip was magical as it became the most romantic vacation of my life (besides our honeymoon of course)!

Ashley and Ian’s destination wedding celebration was held at the historic Ribault Club on Forte George Island, Florida and served as mini-vacation for their family and friends who they don’t see as often as they’d love to. The long-distance couple met when the Ashley’s best friend married Ian’s brother. They were paired up to walk down the isle together and the rest is history! Their celebration was a mix of old and new as the couple infused a modern geometry theme into the historic southern venue. We especially love the marbled and hand-lettered invitations by the always-awesome Printerette Press, the larger-than-life bouquet by The Anti Bride and the artful and organic-inspired cakes by Sweet ‘N’ Flour. Lucky for us Stephanie W. Photography was on hand to capture all the lovely details!

How they met:

Ashley and Ian met in May 2011 in Indianapolis at her best friend and his brother’s wedding. Both were in the wedding party and were randomly paired to walk down the aisle together! They spent the whole wedding weekend talking and by the time they had to leave they were both hooked on each other.

About their first date:

Since Ashley lived in MN and Ian lived in CA they didn’t have a traditional first date. On a business trip to Long Beach for Ian and a visit to a friend in LA they decided to meet up. Ian picked Ashley up and they cruised down to Long Beach for a car show and brunch and ended up hanging out there for a couple days together before returning home.

How he proposed:

On a Sunday morning in November Ian decided they were going to go into San Francisco and do something fun. After a fun day driving around and visiting the zoo they decided to watch the sun set on the West Coast, since after 2 years of living in San Fran they still hadn’t done so yet. They put out a blanket on the beach and waited. As Ian was trying to get a picture of them he started making fun of the ugly gloves she had on, saying they were ruining the picture. She was insistent it was too cold to take them off. He then said she would have to take them off because it would be difficult to wear this. He stuck out his hand with the ring in it and asked her to marry him.

About their wedding:

They turned their wedding into a mini-vacation for their friends, and a week long vacation for most of their family so they would get to spend as much time with all the people that matter to them the most but don’t get to see often enough. For their wedding they wanted to make sure there were good drinks, fun yard games and string lights! It wouldn’t be right without string lights!
