Jordan+Clark

 

Did you ever wish you were brave enough to go pursue your dream? Maybe a dream that wouldn’t be easy and others claimed was not attainable? Did you ever have a best friend that shared the same dream and wanted more for you than they did for themselves?

This is Jordan+Clark. Two dreamers that had fallen in love, long before they knew it, went throughout high school together, off to college- forget college, and off to NYC! Jordan+ Clark are dreamers and what is great is that they live their dreams and share them with those that they love. Jordan + Clark are brave creative and willing to sacrifice for a dream, a dream to work and succeed. They did and they have.

Jordan+ Clark met during the summer of their 8th grade year.  Jordan’s cousin introduced them, they became friends and Jordan+Clark developed a BIG crush.  A crush that was bigger than church camp, and middle school days. Their crush led to them to dating throughout high school.  Little did Jordan know the second boy she ever kissed would be her husband.

After high school they went on to Purdue University, Lafayette, IN.  Jordan was a communications major and Clark is a construction management major, completing his degree. Jordan+Clark had BIG dreams to live in the Big Apple. They wanted to give it a whirl in NYC and they did.  It wasn’t easy in NYC. Remember, dreams never are. Prices were high, living conditions were small and the two had to struggle. They knew what they wanted, survived and succeeded.

The hills of Indiana kept calling them home and soon they were back at Purdue to complete their degrees and prepare for the biggest day of their lives; their wedding.

Their wedding couldn’t be the norm. That wasn’t them. It had to be beautiful, romantic and memorable like this couple. We chose Laurel Hall for its history, beauty and magic. What a romantic setting what a great story. Jordan wanted all the femininity of lace and flowers plus candles. She loved sheer pinks and pearls. We loved her decision and made sure everything was just as she wanted. An elegant vintage wedding with all of the timeless, classic details. Jordan’s dress was breathtaking and she looked gorgeous in it.  It was designed by Pronovias.  Clark’s tuxedo with black bow tie made for an elegant affair. Guests loved the rich woods, stained and leaded glass, plus private gardens of the estate. We loved the intimacy, character and romance of the day.

Funny, how things all happen at once.  Jordan could have graduated the day of her wedding and walked for her diploma.  She walked for an MRS instead and got the BA in the mail. What a joyous occasion.  Two people who had been in love forever were now walking down the aisle to happily ever after.
