About a year ago, during our first wedding consult, I met Jessica and her now sister-in-law, Toya. The two engaged ladies were both in full swing of planning their weddings. I photographed Jessica’s brother, Morgan and Toya’s wedding just last year. It has been so fun working with their family and I was thrilled to get to work with them again just last weekend during Jessica and Chris’ gorgeous Starrsville Plantation wedding!
Their family is so close! I love this about them. I love that when Jessica and her dad had their “first look” his smile was from ear to ear the entire time! I love that when Jessica walked down the isle, Chris about lost it! I love that Jessica’s parents always ask me to take a photograph of them – they are the sweetest couple and I am sure the most incredible role models for their children to look up to.
Jessica’s father’s speech was too sweet and it brought me to tears too! He talked about how when Jessica was a little girl she would play kitchen under the dogwood tree in their back yard and her mom would watch her from their kitchen window. One day Jessica’s mom, Mrs. Cindy, was out by that dogwood gardening and she found one of Jessica’s little kitchen pots. I am sure this flooded her mind with memories of when her daughter was just a little one. Her dad also mentioned that when Jessica was little she gave him some cute little coupons for things like a back scratching, foot rub and one for “no more complaining”. Ha! Apparently he had redeemed them all but the “no more complaining” coupon. During his speech, her dad pulls out the “no more complaining” coupon and hands it over to Chris! So cute!
Congratulations Jessica + Chris!!!
