Jessica and Jason’s wedding day was full of excitement, laughter, dancing and full blown celebration. What a phenomenally in love couple! I am so blessed to have met them and their families and to be a part of their wedding day. I couldn’t ask for better people to work with. They were all so welcoming and thrilled to see me – and you wonder why I love going to work! Jason’s mom was a doll as she learned I LOVE Starburst gummies and cannot work a wedding without them and when I walked in to the suite, she had a LARGE gift bag for me full of Starburst gummies. Oh I was in heaven and still am – I think it may take many weddings to go through this many bags of gummies.
Jessica and her girls were hanging out at the Westin while getting dressed in the suite. She was joined by her mom, Jason’s mom and sister also which added to the fun and laughter. What I LOVED about this suite is that Jessica and her gals got dressed on one side (very large suite) and then Jason joined later and got dressed in the other side of the suite – which made my job of going back and forth from the bride to the groom VERY easy. That explains the pic of them giggling at both sides of a wall This joined both families as everyone was together and sharing in the moments. Now, of course Jessica and Jason did not see each other in the suite, BUT they did a first look on the balcony overlooking the Mississippi River which was awesome. And talk about absolute perfect weather for their outside shots and a first look that was precious. They were both full of excitement and thrilled to see each other privately. I always recommend a first look as it provides private moments for my couples that you may not get during the rest of the wedding day. Since they did a first look, we got to head out to Woldenburg Park for pics during sunset and fun pics of hanging with their wedding party. The lighting was to die for out there right before sunset!
It was then time to head to the Riverview Room for their candlelit ceremony overlooking the Mississippi River surrounded by friends and family. Beautiful moments during the ceremony for Jessica, Jason as their parents watched with so much joy for the both of them. Then it was time to party at the reception. Now, let me say – this was a DANCING group and both sides of the family danced all night long! Plus Jessica and Jason were all over the dance floor with their guests. I can tell they truly were enjoying every single second. I love see families and friends enjoying the music and celebrating and just downright having a good time. So many great moments to celebrate a beautiful, fun loving couple. What a fun night.
Jessica and Jason – I loved being a part of your wedding day and THANK YOU for allowing me into your private moments. Your families were amazing and loving and you are both lucky people to have that much love and support by your side. Congratulations!!
