I have another awesome wedding to share today! You may remember Jessica and Will from their awesome Disney World Engagement Session earlier this year.
Jessica and Will met while working at Disney. Jessica said “We both found each other on our first day of work and were instantly friends, and not long after, best friends. We both still work for Disney and it is something that will remain special to both of us since it brought us together. It is always so much fun to go into the parks on date nights and just have a blast.”
As for the proposal, Will proposed to Jessica on their Hawaiian vacation. Here’s what Jessica had to say about the proposal, “We were on Maui and decided to drive around the whole island, and ended up finding an awesome botanical garden that had the ocean surrounding it on all sides. I had no idea that Will had been carrying the ring with him waiting for the perfect time to ask me to marry him! It was a beautiful setting and a beautiful moment.”
Jessica and Will were married at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. They decided to not see each other until Jessica was walking down the aisle. I love the emotion I captured in Will’s face!
One of my personal favorite moments of the wedding was the portrait session after the ceremony. We had a good bit of time between the ceremony and reception so we were able to go to Roswell Mill for portraits. The wedding party was so much fun and it was so nice to have extra time to take photos with them. I love the way Jessica and Will light up when they are around each other. During their couple portraits, I didn’t have to tell them to smile at all, they just kept laughing and smiling at each other the entire time.
Jessica and Will chose Primrose Cottage to host their reception. The grounds of the venue are gorgeous, I especially love the twinkle lights in the back garden. It is one of my personal favorite venues, the staff is amazing.
When I asked Jessica what her favorite part of the wedding was, she said: Having all of our family together for sure. Our families mean so much to both of us, so to finally have them all in a giant room celebrating our marriage together was awesome.” You could tell they were really loving every minute of their day surrounded by friends and family who love them!”
I asked Jessica if she had any advice for couples planning their wedding and she said, “Give yourselves time to enjoy the wedding process as a couple. Will and I got to plan a lot and make choices together, which really made the wedding feel like our own and very special to us as a couple. We also planned from out of state, which was a tiny bit stressful…so having time to plan was a huge help.”
Jessica and Will, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
