Real Wedding: Jensen + Mike at The Bradford

Where do I even begin with this one? Jensen was such a special bride! I actually met Jensen and her family in elementary school. So when I saw Jensen’s name come across our C&D Events portal I knew it would be so great to reconnect after so many years. Jensen and her family were just as I remembered them - sweet, loving and caring. After meeting Mike he was nothing short of amazing as well. During our first meeting we discussed their vision over a couple of caffeinated beverages around the “Starbucks Conference” table. It was also so great catching up with a childhood friend.

Jensen and Mike had planned their afternoon fall November wedding at The Bradford. They envisioned having a romantic and intimate wedding day. Jensen and her bridal party started the day by getting ready with hair and make up by Lula Hair and Make Up in the charming third floor bridal suite. Mike and the guys claimed the second floor of The Bradford house for their getting ready space.

The ceremony took place in The Bradford side garden under the beautifully arranged pergola by Bushel and Peck Designs. When we initially met over coffee, Jensen mentioned having a vision with her walking through wooden doors down the aisle. Brad and Andrew (Jensen’s Father and Brother) were able to make that dream come true! It was such an astonishing personal touch. During their ceremony Jensen and Mike exchanged heartfelt personal vows in front of approximately 120 friends and family. It was a chilly but I could totally feel the warmth in their hearts.

After tying the knot the couple was swept away by the wonderful Jordan Maunder for bridal party and family photos in front of The Bradford house. Guest were able to enjoy cocktail hour and passed appetizers by Rocky Top Catering inside. Following cocktail hour guest were seated outside on the terrace under the clear top tent provided by CE Rental and inside the ballroom for dinner followed by dancing under the market lights and night stars. Steve with Bunn DJ Company kept the music going with the except of a couple of wholehearted speeches and the cutest “bouquet toss/handoff” to Jensen’s future sister-in-law. We ended the night by lighting the way down The Bradford drive-way with a sparkler exit!

Jensen and Mike - I cannot express enough the love I felt for you both by all of your family and friends. I hope y'all had a blast in London and continue to reflect back on this beautiful day with these fabulous pictures and video by Jon Warlick Media. Thank you for everything. It was truly amazing getting to know you again.
