This classy backyard wedding was SO beautiful! From the gorgeously decorated gazebo, to the tasty hand dipped caramel apples. Everything was definitely on point for this fun and casual picnic inspired wedding!
Josh and Jessica met in high school while performing in theatre. According to Jessica she decided to join theatre after seeing him play a role on stage, shirtless… solidifying her decision!!! After a few shows together they eventually started dating until Josh popped the big question! He proposed to her surrounded by both of their families at Thanksgiving dinner!!
Then the wedding day!!…
I arrived to the familiar chaos of the ladies running around rushing to get ready. The excitement mounting as the bridesmaids helped Jessica into her dress. Then the tears started rolling when her and her mother shared a moment putting on her great grandmothers jewelry. From there we headed outside to a neighboring lake for the first look between Josh and Jessica. As Josh stood facing the water with his bride-to-be sneaking up behind him, he was overwhelmed with a flood of emotions. The moment he turned around, they locked eyes and time stood still. It was so beautiful to watch and be apart of… I even had tears welling up!!
The intimate ceremony was nothing short of perfect! They held each others hands, spoke their vows and became husband and wife in front of their closest friends and family! Directly following the ceremony was cocktail hour where the newlyweds socialized with their guests before dinner! There was not only an open bar but some yard games available for everyone to play!
The couple couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day. Surrounded by friends and family, perfect weather and gorgeous decor, it was exactly how they envisioned their day from the very beginning!
