We could use a lot of words to describe Jewel and Travis’ backyard wedding, but one word that keeps coming back to us is special. The perfectly manicured grounds of the bride’s childhood home set the scene for their early fall celebration. It was there that Jewel walked down the aisle to marry her first true love in an outdoor ceremony. (Excuse us while we bask in this sweetness!) She looked absolutely gorgeous doing so too – wearing an Ines Di Santo ball gown from Bridal Beginning that had a sweetheart neckline and empire waist embellishments. The desired color palette of red, rust, and gold shined through in the bridesmaids dresses, strikingly exotic floral arrangements, and gold chargers and chiavari chairs in the semi-outdoor tented reception. Thanks to All Occasions Party Rental and EF Lighting, beneath the tent was a custom neon sign in front of boxwood greens that served as a backdrop for the sweetheart table and twinkling lights that added a pop of brightness among the deep tones. With a gorgeous floral chandelier suspended over the makeshift dance floor, Jewel and Travis shared their first of many dances that evening to Leon Bridges “Coming Home.” It’s only fitting that a love story as rare and timeless as this one, had a classic getaway car too — one of the many highlights of the day that Oakwood Photo + Video knew how to document oh so well!

About the Wedding
The couple went for a moody vibe – lots of deep dark red and rust, gold accents, twinkling lights, candlelight among the trees – in an early fall garden setting overlooking the valley below.
