A Hardcore Wedding at a Private Residence: Jacob & Janelle

Jacob & Janelle were married at a private residence in Provincetown, MA. The groom being a singer in the punk/hardcore/metal band Converge, this was always going to be a bad ass wedding and they certainly didn’t disappoint.

The couple were keen to create a wedding that had ‘them’ stamped all over it and so provides all the visual direction for the decor themselves. this included The vintage test tube rack idea to hold flowers. “This was something we knew we wanted to use from our own home,” they explained. “The glass bottle used as center pieces on the tables were all found objects from our own backyard. We have been renovating our home for a number of years, and it’s been a huge part of our lives during that time.”

“Since they were all found during that process, it meant a lot to us to include them. The beakers were provided by the people at Mad Props, Boston. Everything was artfully assembled by Andrea Black for Ramblin’Rose. We executed everything ourselves with the help of friends and family”

Of course the music and entertainment was really important to this couple so instead of entrusting it to a “potential horriblesitcom-esque DJ disaster” (their words haha!) they compiled the playlist themselves. “We spent a few days and assembled a variety of playlists for certain times during the evening,” they continued. “It was an eclectic mix, but not too obscure.”

Thank you so much to Jacob & Janelle for sharing their beautiful wedding with us and to Matt Miller for his bad ass photos.

  1. I love Converge. LOVE. It is amazing to see a tough guys soft side. These photos make me tear up a little. One of my favorite weddings you’ve featured.

    Oh my gosh, why have I been searching and searching for vases when we’re both scientists and I’ve got a lab full of goodies?! Email flying to my boss right now and this blog will be the first thing I show Marc when we get home! Thank you!

  3. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this – I love converge and have seen them play a zillion times. I always felt sorry for Jacob Bannon because from his lyrics and comments made live, it seemed like he had been burned by women a lot but it looks like everything worked out for him! I always felt any girl would be lucky to have him and now someone is ^.^

    I love love your bridesmaid dresses and I’ve been scouring the Dessy website. Off chance, but do you have the style number and the name of the color?


  5. Love these wedding photos!! As a wedding videographer I just love all the little bits of detail as it adds a nice dynamic to any wedding video or wedding album.
