Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
Jordan and William “Preston” Guinn’s DIY wedding was filled with subtle nods to their love story. They hired the band that was playing on the night they finally realized they wanted to get to know each other better (Preston has been a longtime best friend of Jordan’s cousin) to play at their reception. Their wedding colors—burgundy and succulent green—and their potted succulent name cards, which doubled as guest favors, paid homage to the night they got engaged at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. And the pumpkins that decorated the reception were grown by Jordan’s parents.
With so many personal touches, it must have been hard to decide what the most memorable part of their wedding day was. Jordan’s answer? “Everything!” She remembers the weather being perfect, the food being delicious, and the entire day being beautiful.
