An enchanted day in May, in a place long ago and far away, there was a fine lady of fashion who longed to leave the dizzying spin of city living for the pleasures of the countryside. She loved cherry blossoms, apple blossoms, and all sorts of blossoms. Most of all, she loved the Spring, and loved to dance barefoot on the grass at sun set, afternoon and especially in the light of dawn. There was also a fine gentleman who often sat by his window, gazing over the fields and the meadows. He loved to see the lady dance barefoot upon the grasses and flowers under the cherry tree at his estate in the country. She danced as if no one was watching, and every time he saw her dance, he slowly fell in love with her free and sweet spirit.
She was a very tender and delicate lady, and loved to wear the color pink. So she vowed one day that she would celebrate her wedding dressed only in pink at apple blossom and cherry blossom time. And spend her honey moon with her sweetheart, in the countryside, surrounded by the budding trees and blossoms, dancing and feasting a deaux, and enjoying La Vie en Rose – an eternal springtime of love .
One day the Marquis came to greet her while she danced ,. She took one look , and knew he was the one she had always dreamed of . He ws overwhelmed by her grace and charm , and extended his hospitality to her , were she to desire to return . And return she did , and the two fell in love .
Their engagement was celebrated with Mlle. Jessie dancing in palest blushing pink tulle , while her fiance watched on a blanlet under a crabapple in bloom , with a smile and very good bottle of white Chardonnay .He then got up to join her , promising her a lifetime of bliss , and dancing a deux , amidst the blossoms and the flowers .
Their engagement photos were our pleasure to capture , and are our pleasure to share .
Jessie’s gown is vintage , needless to say … and her entire marvelous ensemble , as well as that of her beau , is from Exile in Kensington Market .
