Together, Jennifer and Alex have six kids. Their kids were so excited for them to get married. They kept asking about the wedding. So, like two awesome parents would, they planned a popup surprise wedding! At one of the most gorgeous murals in DC, no less.

The kids thought they were headed to a family photo session. As they walked into Blagden Alley, they saw their family and friends, and the surprise wedding was revealed!

The girls! Kids as bridesmaids is such a fun idea. Jennifer and the girls picked out these matching jackets for their “photo session” and they just happen to be perfect for a wedding!

It also pays to be crafty! Jennifer made these golden dinosaur cake toppers herself before the wedding. They added such a fun, personal touch to their ceremony and everyone totally fell in love with them.

After the ceremony and cake feast, we made a confetti tunnel for Jennifer and Alex before their friends and family headed off. Look at their son’s face as he gets to chuck a giant handful of confetti at mom and dad! Biodegradable confetti for the win!

A tip: if you throw confetti, you’ll wear it all day. But it’s kind of better this way, am I right?! So pretty!
