Sometimes a whirlwind romance will just take you over! And Jessica and John are that exception. They met and just knew, married at the gorgeous Belle Meade Plantation a year later, with family and friends by their sides. I had such a fun time choosing all the details with Jessica and her mother, where we could focus on the pretty little details and watch an exquisite team of vendors pull it all together! It was a perfect day.
My California roots were itching today, as this special couple comes all the way from right outside my home town! California girl meets boy from the South. Love finds a second chance sometimes, and for these two well-matched lovebirds, today was the day. A few of my favorites moments were these …
We had a true family table – bride, groom, and three kids in the round, just like at home over a family style service meal (if only all our home cooking was as good as Chef & I!)
When the bride said “I don’t know if I’ve ever felt this loved, but today, I believe it” (tear…).
When the groom excused his poor dancing skills, yet still performed his practiced box steps with such precision – only a Dr. could look so focused!
Lastly, when four girls, including the bride’s daughter, performed a very special dance to “Love Shack”! It was the perfect party starter!
It was the most perfect, first day of spring. And the perfect first day, to unite this family.
