Jenna and Clay celebrated their union at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, where guests can dine next to exotic plants and the great outdoors! With the help of Pedal And Stem, the couple decorated the space with pampas grass galore—in the bouquets, adorning the tables, and on their perfectly rustic DIY hexagon ceremony arbor. Fun fact: They later re-purposed the arch as the photo booth backdrop! If you’re a dog lover, you are going to freak over Jenna and Clay’s custom jean jackets with paintings of their dogs on them. With a a flash tattoo station during cocktail hour, custom What Do You Meme games to play, and a deliciously unique menu with items like coconut crusted chicken and watermelon feta gazpacho—this day had it all! Did we mention the keychain bar? Guests found personalized keychains at their seats, and could visit the bar in the hallways to decorate them with boho accessories. If this experiential and Anthropologie-inspired day sounds like you, just wait until you see every gorgeous image Scarlet Roots captured of it all!

Wedding planning advice from the bride: You have one chance to pick everything out, plan it all and each part is so memorable so enjoy the journey leading up to the big day. It all gets done somehow and honestly come the actual day, all of the planning woes just go away. So many couples give so much of themselves into each step that it should be cherished and bring smiles. Also don’t forget a sewing kit on the day of the wedding, ha! It will be more handy than you ever imagined. And lastly – get yourself an awesome and fun photographer – we had Scarlet Roots and she literally was our biggest hype person and we will forever remember her and how special she made us feel but also how funny and experienced she was.
We wanted an interactive gift so we set up a ‘Make your own keychain’ bar where we had leather tassels, agate slices, yarn llamas (which were the biggest hit), gems, etc. where everyone could take the personalized leather pendant from their plate setting and go to the bar to add more accessories to their keychain that fit their own styles.
To be honest, aren’t we all obsessed with Anthrpologie and BHLDN vibes? I wanted to replicate that but with our personalities in the mix so we blended humor with making our own ‘What Do you Meme’ games for each table where we had photos and captions of all of our guests yet all surrounded by Pampas grass, warm tone colors, palm tree plants, cement, candles and most of all – dancing!
