A Jubilee Event: Julia + Jamil’s Vintage Lace Affair by the Shore in Guilford, CT

Feast your eyes! You may have seen these two love birds on Style Me Pretty yesterday, but prepare your hearts for the full details here!

Julia and Jamil were married on a hot summer day by the shore in Guilford, Connecticut.  The sun was out, it was bright, but it was no comparison to how beautiful of a bride and a person Julia is! We were very lucky to work with her and Jamil and hear about the unique story of how they met. Bicycles have a long history in Julia’s family and along a bike race she had participated in, Jamil rode into her life. They decided to get to know one another post-race and that was the first day of a great adventure!

Julia and Jamil’s day was dressed up with lots of lace and bright pops of yellow and green at the Guilford Yacht Club. Guests took home darling little bike bells as favors, which also dubbed as the glass clinging for toasts. We even brought in a fun vintage bicycle from New England Country Rentals, an amazing find! I always find that the guests at an event are reflective of the personality of the couple.  This couldn’t have been more true that night as everyone was so sweet and excited to celebrate their big day!  They danced all night long with milkshakes and sliders in hand. Everyone was sad to see the evening end!

A huge hug and the biggest thank you to Katie Slater Photography for these absolutely beautiful photos!

Gifts for the Groom: JORD Watches

Sometimes the man in your life can be a challenge to buy for, which is why we’ve started this new blog series “Gifts for the Groom.” We’re excited to highlight products geared toward the male persuasion! Our first product review is of these gorgeous wooden (yes, I said wooden!) watches by JORD Watches. I love the design of this watch in particular– the coloring, the design, and the weight. The makers of JORD Watches are obsessed with using natural materials to offer a unique fashion flare. Their wood watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials from all over the world. In my opinion these watches can be dressed up or dressed down, an every day piece or a special occasion time piece– and everything in between! They have a variety of wood finishes available as well was watch face colors and styles.

We think their watches make a fantastic gift for your groom– or your groom’s groomsmen! To learn how you can purchase a JORD watch, visit their website at woodwatches.com
