Jen & Drew: A Lesner Inn Wedding

Jena and Drew couldn’t have had a more perfect day for their wedding. They were married on September 4, 2010 and the weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony. Their ceremony took place on the upper deck of the Lesner Inn overlooking the water. The sun was shining and there was a beautiful breeze! Jena wore a beautiful ivory lace cap-sleeve gown and her bridesmaids accompanied her in cornflower blue cocktail length dresses that looked great with the given scenery.

After the ceremony the guests remained on the deck for cocktail hour while the bridal party made a quick trip to the nearby beach for some beautiful pictures with Heather Hughes Photography (who was amazing by the way!). Since the wedding ceremony ended right before sunset, the pictures taken at the beach were simply breathtaking as the sun set in the background.

When the bridal party came back from pictures the reception began in Lesner Hall, the upstairs event space of the Lesner Inn. Everything was decorated in blue and orange; from the tables and the flowers to the candy bar. If I could describe their reception in one word it would be Fun, with a capital F. It hardly felt like we were working at all, we had such a great time. Snackbar Jones was the band for the evening...Frank and the guys totally rocked it! There were people on the dance floor all night long; they barely even took a break to eat.

When it was time for their departure there was a tricycle waiting for them all decorated and ready to go. The groomsmen had snuck out of the reception  to decorate the trike for them in the traditional “Just Married” style. The bike even had a little seat for Jena on the back, too cute!

I had 2 favorite memories from the night: First, was the groom’s cake. Both the wedding cake and the groom’s cake were done by Patti Cakes Inc. The groom’s cake was a cooler full of beer sitting on a beach. Everyone was amazed at how real it looked and how great it tasted. I also loved that from the moment all of the guests walked in to the reception to the moment it was time to go the dance floor was packed! It was a true celebration.

Don't you love how Jena and Drew both looked so happy in every image!

This rustic bamboo structure was the perfect backdrop for their laid back wedding...Thanks to Debbie Pence and the Fluttering Flowers crew for this detail and all of the floral design.

Drews Brother (and best man) was hilarious! As was his mom!

Notice her dress change? Love it!
