Black and white wedding: Jessica + Jason

categories DIY Wedding, Real Weddings

This pretty wedding, (full of awesome paper details, we have to point out!), took place at a gorgeous chateau just outside of Montreal. Who says you need to go to France to have a wedding in a huge historic house? Jessica and Jason did a beautiful job incorporating tons of personality into a sophisticated event. They designed all of the paper pieces themselves, using their portraits as a thread throughout their invites and the rest of their wedding. They even used them on the backs of the fans that doubled as ceremony programs. Awesome job you guys!


Jessica’s dress came from the annual Filene’s Running of the Brides event in Boston. She and her sisters and a few friends woke up at 4am to wait in line at the convention center. Which was totally worth it when she scored her dress for $399! The best part is she has no idea who the designer is because the tag had been ripped out. Brand just doesn’t matter if you find a dress that fits you perfectly!



They chose “Wigwam” by Bob Dylan for the processional (a nod to the Royal Tennenbaums) and the bride entered to “Just like Honey” by Jesus and The Mary Chain (from Lost in Translation). They wanted to make sure that music, like the rest of the wedding, felt like THEM… not just like any other wedding.


They designed the placemats at empty frames so guests could create whatever they liked inside. Cute ideeer guys.


And dinner was BBQ style, served so guests could pass around platters of food as if they were at a family feast.




Aren’t they so cute?



Jessica and Jason, you guys did an amazing job putting together your wedding! Your paper details are awesome and you seriously thought of every single detail that could be designed. We like that. Thanks so much for sharing!!
