Bohemian Museum of Commerce Wedding
Jackie and Matt’s eccentric personalities made this simple bohemian Museum of Commerce wedding, a day to remember. The unique event space paired with simple decor was absolutely perfect for these two love birds to celebrate their marriage. Indie Pearl Photographer, Erika Smith, was able to capture the celebratory mood perfectly. Numerous cocktail tables and a large dance floor created a party atmosphere, something Jackie and Matt wanted more than anything else. These two danced in and out of their wedding reception and will most definitely keep dancing through their life together.
Their Love Story
Matt Sauce and Jack Sauce met at RUF summer conference in Panama City Beach, FL. They both worked for RUF, but at different schools. At Summer Conference they had the time of their lives hanging out with their students and their RUF intern friends, and they played volleyball together. On May 17, 2016, Matt asked Jackie out on a date. Jackie said yes. A few months later Matt told Jackie, “I want to be with you more than I want to do seminary right away. Actually, tbh I want to marry you, and tbh marry you next summer, and ACTUALLY, I am planning on proposing in a couple months.
Matt opened Jackie’s Christmas present, then Jackie opened Matt’s Christmas present. Matt had bought Jackie a vintage polaroid camera with silver and GOLD film. Under the camera was a picture of Matt holding a ring for Jackie. But Jackie didn’t even see the picture because she was admiring the camera. She looked up to say “Matt this is the coolest gift ever, way cooler than that jacket I got you,” but she saw Matt had gotten out of the truck-bench and was kneeling down with a BEAUTIFUL rose gold ring with a diamond and little baby diamonds on it. Jackie said “you SNEAKY BOY. YOU TRICKED ME!” She forgot to answer the question. She looked around and took in the sights. Burial really was the most magical place, but she never thought she would actually get proposed to there. Then, she told Matt to ask her again. And THEN she said um, YEAH I WILL marry you. You’re my best friend and I love you and now we will be best friends forever.
The Theme and Color Scheme
Jackie’s personal style is minimalist casual with a little bit of bohemian. She loves bright colors, but not in large quantities. Jackie didn’t shoot to have a certain theme or style for the wedding, but as she pinned and saw things she liked, it turned out to reflect her personal style, which is sometimes way easier than picking a theme. As far as colors, she wanted it to reflect a summer wedding without being too bright or beachy. They ended up with a lot of white and pops of bright “sangria” and yellow.
Wedding Planning Tips for Future Couples
We are really glad we did a 5 month engagement. Less time to change your mind about things, you just have to make decisions and stick with it, but definitely still enough time to throw an amazing party. Enjoy the season and focus on each other / your future marriage more than the stressful details.
How to Avoid Wedding Stress
Jackie struggled most with the guest list. She and her fiance are very social people and had a guest list of well over 200 people. This made finding a venue and organizing the wedding flow difficult. FDL was able to help Jackie find a venue to accommodate her guest list and organize the flow of her guests and coordination of her wedding day so everything ran smoothly and seamlessly.
