Trellis Events + The Loft at Studio J Stillwater Wedding / Jillian + Jack

Jillian and Jack met just over four years ago on OkCupid.  They bonded of a mutual love of traveling, comedy, and their love for the greatest city ever, Minneapolis.  As they got to knew each other, they fell deeply in love.  Jack loves Jillian’s compassion and drive to be kind to everyone she meets, and Jillian loves Jack’s ability to make her feel safe and secure so she can truly be herself.  A couple years ago on Jillian’s birthday, Jack proposed after her college graduation.  For their wedding, they chose an outdoor ceremony at Trellis Events then held a reception at The Loft at Studio J in Stillwater, Minnesota.

Everyone arrived at The Loft at Studio J in the afternoon to put on the final touches.  Jack and his portion of the bridal party hung out downstairs in the studio while Jillian and her portion met in the bridal suite.  One of the many things I admire about Jillian and Jack is their impeccable tastes, so of course, everyone looked absolutely stylish and stunning.  The bridesmaid’s dresses were a combination of a deep wine and a lighter pink, the the suites were dark with a pop of color from the flowers that tied everything together.

Once everyone was ready, we traveled to Pioneer Park for the first look.  This park sits on top of a hill and overlooks downtown Stillwater and the river.  Before seeing each other, Jillian and Jack exchanged heart felt letters.  As Jack finished his, Jillian crept up behind him and greeted him by wrapping her arms around his chest.  Jack turned around to see his elegant future wife and the two of them shared a very special moment.

After some photos at the park, the bridal party met us in downtown Stillwater for some group photos.  The river provided a much needed breeze on this sunny and warm September day.  Everyone traveled back to The Loft at Studio J and boarded the Trolley to Trellis Events for their outdoor ceremony.

Trellis sits on the outskirts of downtown Stillwater.  This place is a wedding sanctuary.  Green leafy trees greet you as you enter the wooded path down to the white ceremony tent.  Sparkling chandeliers hung from the ceiling of the tent and at the back was a metal gate adorned with red and white flowers for Jillian and Jack’s ceremony.

Their ceremony featured a reading from the Velveteen Rabbit as well as hand written vows.  Leslie of Positively Charmed shared some wise words with the couple about their love and commitment, and after the exchange of rings, the happy couple kissed and walked down the aisle as husband and wife.

The trolley took the bridal party and family back to The Loft at Studio J for dinner, drinks, and dancing.  The tables were set with vintage matching china that glittered along with the gold tones of the table linens in the candlelight.  There were also a variety of delectable cupcakes on each table for their guests to treat themselves.

Jillian and Jack greeted their guests as they made their way to the buffet line, then took their seats at the head table for toasts.  Both families shared how ecstatic they were with this marriage and how lucky they all were to have Jillian and Jack in their lives.  Jillian’s brother toasted to her as a role model and Jack as a new friend.  Once all the kind words were said, the dance floor opened up with Jillian and Jack’s first dance.  After the formal dances, guests made their way to the dance floor to cut loose and celebrate the newlyweds.

To Jillian and Jack- you both are magnificent!  You two have hearts of gold and are so so kind.  Thank you so very much for letting us be apart of your special day.  Every detail was so perfect and we couldn’t be happier that you two found each other.  We wish you many years of happiness and hope our paths cross again soon!
