We’re super excited to share that the moody Cincinnati wedding of Annie and Jake was featured on Grey Likes Weddings. This romantic wedding was filled with fresh lavender, purple anemones, and burgundy peonies. Keep on reading a short excerpt from the full feature and all the gorgeous photos.

San Francisco couple Annie and Jake were married just six short post-proposal, two-thousand miles away in the city where they first met—Cincinnati. The couple dubbed their wedding theme “relaxed romantic” and enlisted the help of very talented friends to implement their vision at CARNEGIE​ ​CENTER​ ​OF​ ​COLUMBIA​ ​TUSCULUM​. Literally, from the photographer, to the band—and every vendor in between—was a personal friend of the couple.

If​ ​there​ ​was​ ​a​ ​theme,​ ​I’d​ ​call​ ​it​ ​”relaxed​ ​romantic.”​ ​We​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​things​ ​as​ ​simple​ ​and​ ​fun​ ​as possible​ ​for​ ​our​ ​guests​ ​–​ ​that’s​ ​where​ ​things​ ​like​ ​the​ ​food​ ​stations,​ ​cocktail​ ​tables​ ​and​ ​sparse​ ​seating, open​ ​bar​ ​featuring​ ​our​ ​favorite​ ​drinks,​ ​lawn​ ​games,​ ​and​ ​donut​ ​bar​ ​came​ ​into​ ​play​ ​–​ ​while​ ​still​ ​feeling beautiful​ ​and​ ​meaningful​ ​to​ ​us.

Lavender​ ​has​ ​always​ ​helped​ ​relax​ ​me,​ ​that’s​ ​why​ ​we​ ​incorporated​ ​it​ ​in​ ​all​ ​the​ ​decor.
