Jessica & John. Where do we even start with these two? Sometimes you meet a couple and you just know they are going to be amazing. Jessica & John are two of the sweetest, joyous, fun couples we’ve ever met. Jessica is such a caring, beautiful person inside and out- we can certainly see why John popped the question (one of the best engagements ever…read their story here). John is an amazingly thoughtful person with so much patience and an ease about him that can calm any situation. The two together make a perfect pair! He keeps her grounded and she fills his life with exuberance and love.
Their wedding day at Green Gates at Flowing Lake was absolutely perfect, not a hair out of place, mostly due to Jessica’s amazing planning skills, but also because her mom took it upon herself to hand-make all the decorations- even the table flowers came from her garden! Seriously Ann, you should be a wedding planner. There were tears, laughter, more tears, lots of hugging and more tears…mostly these were shed by Jessica and somehow still looked beautiful in all of her photos. Jessica was able to have a first look with both her dad and John, two extremely special moments for her and we loved every minute. Their wish for perfect weather came true and their ceremony was filled with love plus a bit of laughter when John repeated his walk down the aisle, forgetting to stay at the front after walking his parents down. Their reception glowed into the night with twinkling lights and dancing guests as they celebrated the first of many wonderful days together as husband & wife.
Jessica & John we cannot wait to watch your journey continue and are so grateful that we were there for the start if this new beginning. ~Erik & Marissa
The guys couldn’t resist the props found in the groom’s cabin…
Before everything started Jessica & John wanted to say a quick hello. So.sweet.oh.my!
Jessica surprised her dad, Tom, with a first look of his own.
Of course the flag had to come out for a photo!
Jessica, if you weren’t already aware, is such a beautiful person with a kind heart. Her sorority sisters apparently agree!
First time we’ve ever seen a newborn in the running for the garter, but we think he was peer pressured.
