I love how Jenny and Luc had such a laid back, enjoyable approach to their wedding. Not only did they have fun planning it together, but the whole night just seems like such a wonderful time of celebration. If a carousel ride doesn’t scream “celebration!” than I don’t know what does!

Feather Love Wedding

Wedding Twinkle Lights


Do you think it’s too much to make 68 hanging candle jars for the tent and 300 candle jars for the tables?
No. Candlelight is the best way to create ambiance in the tent.


Hippie Wedding Dress


I can’t interpretive dance to “Come Sail Away” in the long gown. Should I wear a Kate Bush inspired frock for our first dance?

Our wedding was a massive endeavor of fun, but without the support of Luc, our families and our friends it would have been impossible. As we tend to have the uncontrollable urge to arrange fun things to do, we’ve (somewhat sarcastically) coined ourselves “The Ambassadors of Fun” and are starting a blog based on our fun recommendations (coming soon), as a division of jenny//luc. My tumblr: Gold Dust Mountain and wedding tumblr: Band of Gold. I abandoned my cat blog The Catalyst in lieu of the wedding (and work) but it’s still true: ireallylikecats

Ginuwine’s Pony (twice!) sets this wedding over the top for me. This may be my favorite bride & groom EVER. So freaking cool. And soooo-inspiring!

I can’t even explain how obsessed I am with Featherlove Photography. It truly is art. And this wedding is just amazing all on its own. The whole wedding hanging out on the merry-go-round? Things this cool just don’t happen! I’m just in lurve.

That seems like a really fun wedding to be at! I bet their guests had almost as much fun as they did. Awesome!

As my one year old nephew would say, “mo pweaz.” This wedding is amazing and I am not just saying that because I too love cats.

I am IN LOVE with the hanging candle jars! Can someone tell me how these were made or where they got them? I would really like to try to recreate them for our wedding next October.

What a fun wedding. Loving the candle lit ambiance.

Jess | Reply

This is the one wedding that I’ve ever seen that I feel was PERFECT. I wish I could have attended to such a momentous event were “pony” was played twice.

Jenny | Reply

Thank you for all the sweet sweet comments. It was the happiest day of my life!! (duh) Sara (or anyone else interested) .. we saved about 40-50 of the hanging jar lanterns (made by yours truly with the help of a good friend) .. I’d be happy to sell some of them, I was going to post some on Etsy .. get in touch via my website if you are interested :)
