Jennifer & Russell’s Wedding by +Raven

When I first got in contact with Jen & Russ, and she told me about their upcoming Ocala, Florida backyard-farm-DIY-tea-length-zoot-suit wedding with a bourbon bar, alcoholic cupcakes, and s’mores pit, I was beyond psyched.

You may remember Jennifer & Russell from their engagement session we did in Little Five recently.  They were just as awesome at their wedding. :)

Jennifer had been collecting glass from absolutely everywhere, building up what would become the table centerpieces and a large part of the decor for the wedding.

She painted the invitations. Each set of parents walked one of the couple’s dogs down the aisle.

Her dress was an ombre tea-length custom-designed number, and his suit was a custom made authentic 40’s zoot suit.  Dad even wore a 40’s political pin.

We played with her childhood horse, she wore a necklace her mother made her, SHE MADE THE BOUQUETS AND BOUTONNIERE from felt.

Raven you were a blast to have around as well. I’m glad you enjoyed yourself. It was a pretty damn good party afterwards as well. I’m looking forward to seeing all the pictures you took.
