Jones’ sister, their wedding photographer and friend Rosie Hardyand their videographer and friend Emilie Ferris kept them company. another friend, Jen Scottcombed their hair, and their sister’s friend, bean and bearhave made up.

“When she did the makeup, she was really communicating a lot,” Jones said of Bean & Bear, who also gave them a fidgety toy to use throughout the wedding day. “I knew exactly what was going on, which I really appreciated.”

“It was really, really helpful,” Jones said of getting to know the people who groomed them for marriage. “I didn’t have to explain myself to people because they already know me. And that really helped me a lot.”

“Being home getting ready was nice,” Jones added. “And a friend who did my makeup brought a dog to calm me down. So that was cute.”

Jones also took quiet breaks throughout the morning, which kept them from being over-stimulated.
