Jessica’s former colleague and Adam were neighbors. While out one night, Adam was lamenting on all of the dates he had been on and how he still hadn’t found the right person. Amy decided to text Jessica and set us up on a blind date. We knew pretty immediately that we had found the one. Amy looked back on that moment and said, “I had a whisky and a great idea.” And the rest was history!

It was important that both faiths were represented at our wedding and that we included so many of the important people in our lives. For those we didn’t ask to be our bridesmaids and groomsmen, we asked to speak at the ceremony. While we knew it would be difficult to find a rabbi and a priest that would do an Interfaith ceremony, we also knew it would be difficult to find a pair who would take the time to get to know us and truly help us perform a beautiful ceremony that celebrated our love and who we are as people instead of a generic service. It took us a long time and we had to do a lot of research and speak to many people and in the end, we found a priest and a rabbi that created an unforgettable ceremony for us. Our friends and family are still talking about it and so many people have told us it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to and how touched they were by the experience.

We’re so glad we didn’t just dismiss this portion in all of the stress and time-consuming planning of the wedding. It brought us closer together because we did the work together to create the ceremony we truly wanted. Our advice to couples is to not get so caught up in the stress and to do list of your wedding day and truly take the time to make sure your ceremony has a focus too; this is where you promise yourself to your partner – the reason why you’re having the wedding in the first place!

Jessica works for a sustainability company and has always had a passion for non-profit work and giving back so it was important that the wedding represented this as well. All of the flowers were designed by Repeat Roses and later donated to Multiple Sclerosis and cancer treatment centers, two causes that are close to our hearts. Trees were planted because of the invitations we purchased and we even ordered our own paper straws so guests wouldn’t have to use plastic straws.

Food was also one of the most important parts of our wedding – we love food and we wanted our guests to be full and happy throughout every part of the night! Flowerfield allowed us to have an “Around The World” type of cocktail hour with more passed hors d’oeuvres than we could count, stations and a plated meal with multiple options. We made sure to include an after party at our venue because we knew we wouldn’t want to leave. We served fun late night bites and it gave us more time to spend with guests we hadn’t yet been able to speak to during the actual reception.

We also hated hearing about the stories of our friends with dietary restrictions and allergies who would go to weddings and not eat because there simply weren’t any options for them. Flowerfield accommodated so many of our requests and naturally had a nut-free menu as well so that all of our friends and family were thanking us because they were able to take part in the food experience – and indulge in cocktails on a full stomach! When your friends and family are taking the time and spending the money to travel to celebrate you, you want to accommodate them in every way you can and make sure they feel truly happy and loved!

What it comes down to is you should both really find meaning in every decision you’re making and not just checking off the boxes of the wedding people say you should have. And, when the other partner gets stressed, take the reigns. When Jessica got frustrated that they had interviewed so many videographers and hadn’t found the one that they felt would really capture the essence of their wedding day, Adam continued the research and found the perfect studio. When Adam got worried about budget and said they should perhaps think about having a DJ instead of a band, Jessica put her foot down and made sure they accommodated the cost of a band, something Adam had always talked about having at his wedding before they even got engaged. We recognized that we both different skill sets and at the end of the day, we were in this together so we made sure to both be involved in all aspects… and it made it so much more fun!

Enjoy every minute of the journey, let your friends and family be a part of it and savor every moment. You get to learn so much about each other and have a blast doing it!
