I was privileged to witness Jennifer and Jesse become husband and wife on a beautiful Saturday in November. Their wedding day was elegant and sophisticated with more than a few nods to classic style, while at the same time filled with personal touches and fun surprises. In short, it combined the best parts of this adorable couple.
The Hall and Gardens at Landmark definitely hit the mark for elegance. Crystal chandeliers mirrored the crystal accents on Jennifer's gown, and the late afternoon sunlight streamed through the windows, lighting everything it touched with a gorgeous, golden glow. Their ceremony was focused on faith and family - Jesse's dad even got into the act, lending his beautiful singing voice while the couple lit their unity candle. As the ceremony ended, however, the party began! The first big surprise came as the bride, groom, and all their attendants donned shades and danced their way out of the ceremony to Bruno Mars's “Marry You”. Later on, Jesse and his groomsmen jogged onto the dance floor to perform YMCA, complete with crazy Village People hats. The crowd, as you might imagine, pretty much went nuts.
Gambol Photography did a fabulous job, snapping some truly amazing shots throughout the night. I love how the photos show off both the glamorous details of the wedding as well as the love and sense of fun that Jennifer and Jesse share. From a just-married kiss with a dip, to a first dance full of well-practiced moves, to waving goodbye from the back of a beautiful, vintage Excalibur, this couple is definitely not afraid of the limelight. And a good thing, too, because they wear it so well!
Working with these two was a dream. Every coordinator should be so lucky. Congratulations, Jenn and Jess!
