Truly a day for memories to last a lifetime. I feel like I’ve known Jessica and Michael for years after spending three different days with them (see their Engagement Session here). They have this amazing chemistry that makes you get excited, giddy and at ease on so many occasions. When they first met, it was an instant attraction and they had to be a couple after the first day. It’s those kinds of love stories that make you tear up as Jessica walks to see Michael during their first look. Then, glance over at Michael’s daughter, Graysen and realize this is it. This is their perfect day.
Jessica joined her bridesmaids, Graysen and mom, Jennifer, as they dressed at Firesky Resort. Walking through the room you could hear Graysen talk about the wedding dress and how she was excited to see Jessica marry her dad. While setting up all the details for capture the dress, shoes, and jewelry, you could definitely see the colors of red and blue emerge. Plus, by amazing luck Firesky helped the bridal photos with those colors popping into the background.
Seeing Michael with all his groomsmen made all his buddies feel at ease. Maybe it’s also because Michael is so cool and calm. Snapping away his groom portraits and then unveiling Jessica during their first look was everything they had hoped. Joy, tears and happiness. Off to the venue as they waited in the bridal suite for all their guests to arrive, they had everything in order as their planning team with Celebrations by Amy Bacon keep things going smoothly. Not a detail too small from chair fans to fans for the bridal party to stay cool. After the guests settled into their seats of the reception, Jessica and Michael jumped into their first dance following the intros. Then, the most amazing thing – confetti cannons. Everyone will wish for these and need them. Incredible intro and then later a choreographed family dance with Graysen, Jessica and Michael to “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars that never missed a beat. I can’t believe the day went by so fast and I’m so blessed to see such a great couple get married.
