Congratulations on your last semester at UT, Michelle!   I met this gorgeous ‘almost-college-grad’ last week on the University of Texas campus to document her graduation from UT in a few months.  We had fun as I’d really never been on campus much (being I went to that ‘other’ Texas School…whoop!)  Regardless, being a native Austinite, I had fun touring the architecture and really enjoyed hearing Michelle’s plans for the future.  Congratulations on your accomplishments and thanks for a wonderful afternoon photo shoot!

Freyday – Game of Thrones Exhibit at South By South West!

March 14, 2014

JFP Game of Thrones Exhibit Austin 01 1024x1024 Freyday   Game of Thrones Exhibit at South By South West!

So…you may have heard of a little thing called South by South West (or as the locals call it, SXSW) here in Austin.  It’s been going on a few days now and although Eric and I aren’t late night partiers or super music lovers, we did manage to make our way to HBO’s awesome Game of Thrones Exhibit!  It’s currently touring the world with only two stops in the US – NYC and Austin!  With my in-laws visiting, we decided to spend a few hours on Sunday and see what all the fuss was about…plus I’d seen people instagraming photos of them literally SITTING ON THE IRON THRONE!  You see, Eric and I read all of the books while traveling the world and are fans of the show, so it was fun getting to see the costumes, props, SIT ON THE IRON THRONE and even participate in an incredible virtual reality where we got to climb the WALL and experience what it’s like to be Jon Snow icon wink Freyday   Game of Thrones Exhibit at South By South West!  So…for all of my GOT fans out there, here’s a look for you of what it was like on the inside!  Have an awesome FREYDAY!  -Jessica

Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

March 12, 2014

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 01 1024x682 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

1) What is the best advice that was given to you when you started planning your wedding? 

Take a minute to stop and enjoy the process. It can get stressful but you have to slow down and think about it because how often do you get to try on gorgeous dresses and taste cake for free?!

2) What is one thing you think every bride should know that you learned while planning your wedding?

Everyone always says “It’s your day, you should get everything your way” and while that is true, there are a lot of family and friends that this wedding means a lot to. Learn to pick your battles and know that a little concession goes a long way with a grandmother or future in-law, but don’t be afraid to say no if you really don’t want something.

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 22 682x1024 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

3) What were your wedding colors and is there a story behind why you chose them?

Green, beige, and white. I like green and earthy tones and my pinterest was filled with pictures of green foliage and lots of burlap. The first thing I pinned was a table centerpiece that we ended up using and our florist did an amazing job putting that together.

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 44 1024x682 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

4) What’s your favorite detail you chose for your wedding that representing your love story?

We are big Disneyland fans so my mom got us a Mickey & Minnie cake topper that just makes me so happy every time I look at it. It’s so us. Also, the shot glasses we gave out as wedding favors were a nod to our early dating period that involved a lot of happy hours.

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 30 1024x681 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

5) How long did you have to plan your wedding day?

Almost 11 months. We got engaged on Christmas and married the next November.

6) Did you hire a wedding planner/day of coordinator? Was it worth the expense?

Sure did! Pam Huckabee and the Fairy Godmother team were wonderful. Definitely worth it since their help allowed my mom to really get to be present and enjoy the day with us.

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 23 1024x500 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

7) What are your thoughts on doing a First Look before your ceremony?

The best idea ever! Andrew was sick (literally) with nerves and I was only slightly better but once we saw each other the nerves completely went away. I’m so glad we have pictures and video of it because it was just the sweetest moment of our day.

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 28 1024x775 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

8) Is there anything you’d choose to do differently or have that you didn’t have?

I would have worn more comfortable shoes. Other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing.

9) How was Andrew involved and was there something specific he wanted for your wedding day? 

Andrew really liked being involved with the planning, especially with what he called “logistics”. He just wanted to make sure things ran smoothly for us and the guests. He also insisted on coming to meetings to make sure I got what I wanted!

Jessica Frey Bakersfield Country Club Wedding 06 1024x500 Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

10) What vendors were your top priority?

Photographer, and I hunted down Jessica Frey at a wedding expo because I knew she would make my wedding experience amazing (which she did). The DJ was also important. I ended up with a wonderful team of vendors.

11) Any other advice for brides/grooms planning their 2014/2015 weddings? 

Trust your instincts, get your big vendors out of the way early, and make time to enjoy your engagement. It’s all about you two!

Real Brides – Advice for New Brides!

March 11, 2014

Jessica Frey Seven Oaks Wedding 01 681x1024 Real Brides   Advice for New Brides!

1) What is the best advice that was given to you when you started planning your wedding? 

Have Fun Planning it only happens once in a lifetime!

 

2) What is one thing you think every bride should know that you learned while planning your wedding? 

Communicate and use any help that is offered, the more you can delegate the better.  (I have issues trusting people making things the way I want them so this was difficult for me but I had that 1 person that I knew I could trust and I knew would make the best decisions for me and it was PERFECT!)

Jessica Frey Seven Oaks Wedding 21 1024x775 Real Brides   Advice for New Brides!

 

3) What were your wedding colors and is there a story behind why you chose them? Blush, Gray and White. 

No significance at all.  The hall was very busy with multiple colors, so we picked colors that would tone it down and make a romantic elegant setting.

Jessica Frey Seven Oaks Wedding 42 1024x775 Real Brides   Advice for New Brides!

 

4) What’s your favorite detail you chose for your wedding that representing your love story? 

Baseball ring holder! We both LOVE the Los Angeles Dodgers and he has a history of playing baseball, so we had a friend cut a baseball in half and place the ring holder in to display our wedding bands.

Jessica Frey Seven Oaks Wedding 03 678x1024 Real Brides   Advice for New Brides!

 

5) How long did you have to plan your wedding day? 

We planned our wedding in 9 months.  Got engaged February 2013 and were married November 2013.

6) Did you hire a wedding planner/day of coordinator?  Was it worth the expense?

We did. We hired my best friend, definitely worth it being that I trusted she would make the best decisions for us, she was amazing.  The hall also came with a coordinator who was also helpful but we used my best friend also.

7)  Any advice on having a First Look before your ceremony? 

Yes! I wanted to see him as I came down the aisle because I was worried that we wouldn’t have as much excitement but it was just as exciting. It worked out perfect ( He didn’t cry at the first look, I did…but he cried as I came down the aisle and I didn’t)

Jessica Frey Seven Oaks Wedding 25 1024x681 Real Brides   Advice for New Brides!

 

8)  Is there anything you’d choose to do differently or have that you didn’t have? 

No, we had everything we wanted

9)  How was Jacob involved and was there something specific he wanted for your wedding day? 

He was not too involved he let me run with it and gave his opinion when I needed it.  He did make specific requests such as Mariachi, (DJ) music played, Mexican Candy Bar.

Jessica Frey Seven Oaks Wedding 12 669x1024 Real Brides   Advice for New Brides!

 

10)  What vendors were your top priority?

Photographer- Jessica Frey (She was amazing captured any and everything that was on our list of photos to be taken)

Leslie’s Flower Shop- Very disappointing (would not recommend)

11) Any other advice for brides/grooms planning their 2014/2015 weddings?

DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY , THIS IS YOUR DAY! (DON’T LET ANYONE TRY TO MAKE IT THIERS) We were lucky enough to have no issues or difficulties with the wedding party or our families
