Jeff and Jessica had a gorgeous day for a wedding. It was sunny with a high of 84! I know we were all a little shocked with that temperature for an October wedding but I will take it gratefully because we are VERY close to complaining about how cold it is :D
First up for the day was popping in with the groom at his house. We arrived to a large group of guys hanging out in the garage enjoying the day and each other's company. After locating Jeff's details and snapping a few photos, he opened his letter and gift from Jessica, which turned out to be a surprise engraving on the inside of his wedding band.
Next up, was checking in on the lovely ladies as they were at Jessica's parent's house getting prepped for the day in their beautiful floral robes. Midway through prep we took a break for Jessica to open her sweet letter and gift from Jeff. He gave her the metal rose to represent his everlasting love for his beautiful bride.
Jessica wore a stunning white and ivory fitted lace gown with a plunging V-neckline, buttoned back, and long sleeves with a line of buttons at the ends. Her dress was finished with a beautiful jeweled ivory belt cinched around her waist. She wore her hair half up with a delicate jeweled wire hair piece. Her shoes were a low profile jeweled wedge with "I DO" jewels place on the bottom. Her jewelry, borrowed from her mother was addition to her classic look.
The couple's ceremony was held at Sugar Grove United Methodist Church just down the road from Jessica's parent's house. The sweet little church was the same place Jessica's parents were married and it was the perfect setting for their sweet ceremony.

The reception was held on the property of Jessica's parents. Guests were greeted by an outdoor fireplace with bales of hay for seating, mums, metallic pumpkins, and pinecones. As guest entered they found round tables covered in pink, chairs with burgundy ties, and beautiful center pieces. The ceiling provided a romantic atmosphere with billowing white fabric, two large green wreaths with twinkle lights, and a large golden chandelier. Guests enjoyed BBQ pulled pork, beef tips, loaded mashed potatoes and an assortment of delicious goodies catered by Black Angus on Main. After dinner guest danced the night away and enjoyed each other's company.
