Emily & Austin exchange "I do's" at rustic venue in La Crescent.
Edgy, Trendy, & Bold-Pink Wedding
Jenna Kienbaum’s mom knew her co-worker Jordan Rhodes and her daughter would be a great match. Like any daughter, Jenna told her mom no, but after thinking it over, she reluctantly let her mom give her number to Jordan. Turns out Mother really does know best: The two met over margaritas and immediately hit it off. Five years later, Jenna and Jordan were wine tasting at the Epcot Center in Florida when they stopped in “Paris” for a champagne flight. She knew something was up when he ordered Dom Pérignon, her favorite, and their flight became a toast to their engagement. Their 60-person wedding showcased a vibrant palette of fuchsia with pops of orange, inspired by designer Lilly Pulitzer. Glorious florals featuring peonies and greenery adorned the grand arch at the altar, the bouquets and, of course, the collar of Charlotte, the couple’s Boston terrier. In lieu of a sit-down-dinner, Jenna and Jordan opted for hors d’oeuvres throughout the night, featuring everything from grilled cheese to seared scallops, with cake and cake pops for dessert. The dueling pianos band was a huge hit. “I honestly don’t think there was a single person at our wedding who wasn’t singing or dancing!” Jenna says.
