You know the pressure is on when you’re working with a fashion blogger who has close to 18,000 Instagram followers and is a style influencer for the fashion industry. It makes sense that Jacklyn Gerace-Dunn, who runs the blog Three Sisters One Closet, would insist on incredible details for every aspect of her wedding. Despite the pressure, working with this vivacious go-getter with impeccable taste was one of my highlights from 2017. What made it so special was that Jacklyn was nothing but pleasant to work with. As a communicator by trade, she knows the value of open communication. As a stylist, she played an active role in designing her own custom silk floral wall. And, as a savvy businesswoman, she worked well under pressure with me and all her vendors.
Communication is key to coordinating a wedding
Not just in terms of telling vendors what you want, but by being responsive, working with deadlines, and staying connected. From the start when Jacklyn contacted me after she saw one of my silk floral walls on display at a bridal shop in Suburban Square, I knew she would be easy to work with. She clearly described her needs and vision so we could we worked together to customize a wall unique to her own style. She responded quickly to emails and texts, allowing us to stay on target with her wedding date.
The Jackie Wall
That’s what I call the silk floral wall Jacklyn and I created together and is now part of my silk floral wall collection. With the perfect combination and florals in cream whites with a touch of blush, we created a wall precisely in sync with the bride’s neutral color palette and modern-meets-romantic décor.
Jacklyn’s extensive research of the area’s top vendors made turned “work” into “pleasure.” Finley Caterers and the Ellis Preserve create fairytale wedding events. Photographers Grace & Ardor Co. out of Bucks County describe themselves as storytellers. They captured the moment and created breathtaking photo documentation of Jacklyn’s special day. They photographed the wedding party as they shot off confetti cannons when the couple stood in front of The Jackie Wall sharing their first kiss. The moment was spectacular and now Jacklyn can remember it for a life time.
Getting Some Buzz
The "icing on the cake" with this project is that Jacklyn's wedding was highlighted in the Spring/Summer 2018 Philadelphia Wedding Magazine in their "Real Weddings" section. What a great way to start the new year!
