Like many Dot’s Rentals & Sales customers, Kristal Jewell is the do-it-yourself type. When she and Jeremy began to plan their wedding, they knew a simple outdoors ceremony at their home was the perfect fit for them. No event planners. No expensive rentals. No DJ or caterer.
Luckily for the Jewells, their wedding fell on a perfect fall evening—Columbus Day, actually. Guests walked across a freshly mowed field to witness the ceremony against a charming pastoral backdrop.
A sprawling tree branch paired with draped cloth (from Dot’s, of course) and rustic lanterns created an elegant altar for the Jewells.
“The staff at Dots was super helpful,” Kristal said. “They gave me some great ideas and helped me pair certain items together so I could really achieve the look I wanted. I even called later and added some items to my reservation, and they made it so easy. ”
“When Jeremy went to pick our rentals up, they had everything ready, and they even helped load and unload the items,” Kristal said. “I couldn’t be happier with the customer service at Dot’s!”
“I love baking and cooking, so I baked all of the cakes, cookies and snacks for the wedding,” Kristal said.
Cake stands and food stands from Dot’s provided the perfect neutral platform for her creations, which included classics like pineapple upside down cake (in cupcake format, of course), homemade chicken salad, sugar cookies, and—of course—several delicious cakes.
Along with Kristal’s homemade treats, guests enjoyed an outdoor s’mores bar and dined at tables decorated with Dot’s linens in royal purple and custom printed souvenir cups.
Creating a magical wedding experience doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive—just ask the Jewells. Congratulations to the happy couple!
