Jesse & Jessica

I was SO super excited to photograph the wedding of Jesse and Jessica because Jesse is the younger brother of two of my BFF's! [So naturally it totally feels like a family wedding of my own, right!?] Jesse and Jessica [you wouldn't believe how confusing that was all day on the day] didn't really do things "by the book", they contacted me a little while before they actually got engaged to lock me in for the day. They decided to hold their wedding at Weddings at Tiffany's - which is an exceptional venue with impeccable service up in the Maleny region. The bride and groom, continued their streak of "not-by-the-book" by having a first look at One Tree Hill. Jesse looked dashing in his bow tie and suit, and Jessica looked beautiful in her Grace Loves Lace gown. The day was forecast for showers and rain, but it really was absolutely perfect. The ceremony was really intimate, with a few (LOTS) of tears from the groom (and his sister - I saw you Jojo!) *insert ugly cry faces*. Pastor Andy Gourley aka serial match maker was the celebrant of the day and did an amazing job as usual! The bridal party then travelled about 15 mins to a family friends property which is home to many horses and really picturesque - perfect for bridal party photos. For funsies, the couple organised some Coloured Smoke bombs - these are actually EPIC! The reception was filled with moving speeches and wise words from parents and friends, and again the groom struggled to hold back the tears [it was pretty sweet actually]. The dance floor heated up really quickly and some serious dance moves were thrown around [especially by a certain favourite nephew]! [And of course, the day wouldn't have been as fun without my video buddy partner in crime, Mitch from Mitch Birchall Studios]. Jesse and Jessica - congrats on your one month anniversary! May you have a lifetime filled with happy blessings, ongoing wise words, and a library full of funny memeworthy-moments and memories!  Sending much love!!! x
