The fifth installment of my ‘How I Got Married Twice’ series is here. I started with how we met, followed by our engagement, the wedding concept, choosing the venue, sending the save the date, and choosing our wedding planners.
Today’s focus is on how we chose our Wedding Photographer and Stationer.
Jenny Ebert is one of those people you feel comfortable with right away – an important criteria for the person who you could very well spend the most time with on your wedding day (and half-day engagement shoot). The beauty of Jenny and her assistant, however, is that you literally forget that they are there.
Rather than asking her clients to pose for shots or trying to style them, Jenny is able to capture the perfect moment as it unfolds – naturally. Ms. Ebert began her photography career in 1999 as a documentary photographer in the Middle East.
After returning to the States, she was asked by an art director to photograph her wedding, and the rest is history.We were drawn to her photo-journalism background and loved the result of her natural process of photography.
OUR STATIONER: EAST SIX
Stacey and Marina of East Six Wedding Invitations were fantastic, and came highly recommended by Lauren and Kristin. As I mentioned in the previous post, 5 months before our wedding day, we were grateful to learn that I would be able to go in for a hip surgery that I was in dire need of, due to a sports injury.
Once we knew I’d be able to have the surgery, and that it would require three months of physical therapy, crutches, a cane, and finally being able to walk un-assisted again (which I was thankfully able to resume doing and to transition back into marathon training at the end of May/ early June), we knew needed everything — really fast. East Six was able to deliver our custom invitations with plenty of time to spare, and with all of the ornate “Romance of Paris in 1930′s New York” style that we were going for.
They provided us with our custom suite of matching invitations, menus, programs, and place cards, complete with the custom monogram that we designed. Everything turned out beautifully.
