Adding a little sass to class, Jessica and Josh know just how to spice up their wedding!
The couple wrote letters to each other which they read prior to preparations which they read during preparations. They decided to keep the wedding simple and sweet by keeping a consistent theme of tea rose and white. Josh and his groomsmen looked handsome in their charcoal-shaded tuxedo and white boutonnière, with their baby pink necktie as the main point. The bridesmaids were in flattering rose gold dresses, while Jessica kept it traditional with a white gown and veil. She looked absolutely gorgeous in a sweetheart neckline, accentuated with intricate floral details in lace, the skirt a slight mermaid touch, and a fanback delicately trailing behind her as she walked down the aisle.
I actually photographed Jessica’s maid-of honor’s wedding a few months prior, so it was fantastic to see some familiar faces again. I must say, however, that I absolutely adore this couple! Jessica is the type of girl you’d want in your own circle of friends. She’s such a gorgeous girl, and was all bright smiles all throughout their special day. Josh, on the other hand, is a total jokester with a great sense of humor. Together, they are one of the sweetest and most fun-loving people I’ve met. Once reception began, the couple proved that they aren’t afraid to play around and get a little silly.
There’s typically a bit of downtime during receptions. Everyone usually needs time to recuperate after the heavy meal, and there are usually a few idle moments after guests sat through toasts. Not for this wedding! Drinks were readily in hand once guests stepped into the reception area. There were also a few props available to be used, including a pair of lightsabers! Jessica and Josh’s entire guest list were on the dance floor once they were seated, and were ready to celebrate all night long. Everyone knew exactly how to party!
Jessica and Josh are definitely a match made in heaven!
