Jordan and Jessica’s Dawes Arboretum wedding was absolutely perfect! We were really looking forward to this wedding, not only because of the sweet love that these high school sweethearts share, but also because I (Amanda) went to the Columbus College of Art & Design with Jessica! These two had been anticipating this day for a long time and it was so fun to be apart of all of the joy and excitement of the day! The girls started out in one of Jessica’s bridesmaid’s beautiful countryside log cabin. It was such a peaceful place for them to spend time together, relax, and do hair and makeup! It sprinkled off and on in the morning, but the sun came out and it turned out to be a beautiful day! From there, we headed to Dawes and everyone finished getting ready. It was adorable to see Jessica’s little sister’s reaction as she put her dress on! So sweet! Jessica and Jordan shared their first look together with a little twist…they included their pup Dezi! I seriously couldn’t get enough of the cuteness!
For their ceremony, the lovely arch was handcrafted by Jessica’s dad with branches from the yard at the house where she grew up. Such a beautiful element to add to their ceremony. There were beautiful details sprinkled throughout their day and I loved that Jessica designed pretty much all of it herself! She even thought to include us in the succulent favors! How sweet is that! (:
The dreamy portraits of these two close to sunset had to be one of my favorite parts of the day. Those quiet moments with the bride and the groom were such a perfect way to end the evening! Congratulations Jessica & Jordan! We are so happy for you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
