Jourdan Callaway Book swore the last place she would ever get married was Ironwood, where she works as general manager. And that is exactly where she ended up holding her wedding ceremony and reception. After meeting at Ironwood in 2012, Ryan and Jourdan started dating shortly after, and the rest is history, as they say. The bride searched for an exclusive, unique location; somewhere no one had been married before. Having no luck, her mom and bridesmaids suggested Ironwood. A particularly woodsy area of the restaurant’s patio was cleared for the ceremony to create a cozy, private “secret garden.” Mimosas and a three-course dinner from Ironwood chefs were the perfect accompaniments to the Books’ simple but charmingly unique wedding.
