Jessica and Brian are old souls. Everything they had to offer was just a bit different. They had their own flair and we loved every minute of it. As a photographer, sometimes brides ask you very specific and pointed questions. Questions you are not really sure how to answer because in an instant you see two outcomes. One good, and one bad. Jessica, was always the good outcome. While she was getting ready, excitement was just buzzing through her and around the room, she turned to Aaron and said "Does my dress make you think of the little mermaid?" How to answer that question?! I (Aaron) smiled, and said, "It looks lovely. Very different from anything I've yet to see." Jessica responded proudly "I love it! It reminds me of the Little Mermaid mixed with White Christmas!" (a sigh of relief :) ) That really set the tone for the whole day for us. Jessica couldn't have been happier with any aspect of her wedding day....and it showed. I say Jessica and Brian are old souls because of the wonderful thought and detail put into their wedding day. Jessica wore a silver pendant on her wrist. A gift from her grandfather to her grandmother. She even wore her grandmother's veil. She had a style all her own, and everything had a wonderful elegance to it.
We had the wonderful opportunity to do a first look with Jessica and Brian. Brian was so excited he turned a whole 20 feet too early, but it was just as sweet and memorable :) Their mass was beautiful and full of their personality. You'll see one of our favorite photos of Jessica, turned around during the ceremony to give her parent's a wink and thumbs up!
The reception was an elegant affair with a first dance that brought the house down. Another thing we love at weddings are surprises during the father daughter dance. Jessica and her dad did not disappoint. With elegant details and fun all around, their reception was a night to remember. We loved being there. We hope you enjoy some of our favorite memories from their day.
