Real Wedding: Jorie+Scott

Jorie and Scott celebrated their “I do” at Barrington’s White House with a reception full of vintage charm and romantic details. All photos by Daniel Prawica of Jolie Images.

Jorie, on how she and Scott met…

“We met back in 2011 at a welcome home party for Scott, after he returned home from his first deployment in the Navy.  I was invited by Scott’s sister, who became my best friend after we met as randomly assigned roommates in college.”

Jorie, on prepping for her wedding day…
“Waking up that morning of the wedding day was so exciting but nerve-racking!  It was a lovely 60 degrees and perfectly sunny.  The girls made their way to the salon where we were welcomed with breakfast treats and mimosas.  The salon took great care of us and did a wonderful job on all of our hair.  The girls moved to the White House’s bride room to get ready, while the men got ready and shared a good luck glass of Scotch at my parent’s house…”

“…Getting married at St. Anne’s was very special, as it was the church that I was baptized in.  Our priest, Fr. Britto, was a former priest of St. Anne’s who came back to marry us.  Everyone loved him, I can’t tell you how many compliments I received about him!”

Jorie and Scott, on how they knew they were perfect for each other…

“We instantly felt like we had known each other for years; the first night we met we stayed up until 5 a.m. talking and getting to know one another.  We were truly committed to one another, as Scott left the area and went back to Virginia, where he was stationed in the Navy.  We knew we could handle the four years of distance and a 10 month deployment because of our connection, communication, and love for one another.”

Jorie and Scott, on choosing Barrington’s White House

“Having our reception at Barrington’s White House really made it a unique experience. We wanted something different other than typical reception venues, and the vintage charm and all of the amazing details the house had to offer created an intimate, romantic setting.”

Jorie and Scott on their vendors…

“Our vendors were truly amazing. Our florist really understood my “vision” and captured it perfectly. Our photographer, Daniel, was amazing as well.  Not only did he capture the precious moments of our day, but he went above and beyond; he put the boutonnieres on all of the guys and even helped Jordan with her dress!”

 Jorie, on her favorite memory from her wedding day…
“The whole day was amazing, from the weather to getting ready to walking down to aisle to dancing the night away at the reception.  I truly enjoyed being surrounded by everyone we love and to finally be marrying Scott.”
Scott, on his favorite memory from his wedding day…
“My favorite part of the day was just seeing how happy Jordan was and knowing that her dream wedding had become a reality.  Also, it was amazing to see how much fun everyone was having and how well our families meshed together.”
