This beautiful winter wedding wasn’t supposed to be. The couple, of course, was meant to be – but this wedding takes place in May!
I arrived before anyone else in Inverness Square in McKenzie Towne to find it looking a bit different from when I’d visited it the previous week.
Still, there was no turning back. The note on their fridge whiteboard said so.
Everyone hurried to the gazebo for the wedding as it started snowing again!
Luckily, most people had umbrellas. Watching Jessie and her baby being walked down by her dad was very unique!
That’s right, a newborn baby.
I absolutely love winter weddings, but I feel bad because this was absolutely not intended to be one!
That didn’t put a damper on anyone’s spirits, however.
I loved watching them read their vows, both handwritten and memorized.
In a surprising twist, Jordan got down on his knee to put the wedding ring on!
And their son loved it!
Then, the snowy kiss.
And a triumphant, if speedy, exit!
Jessie and Jordan held a small reception in their home, with some beautiful decorations to light up the walls.
Family members pitched in with cute baked goods. Heart cookies, anyone?
Catering can be a big cost of a wedding. When trying to keep it small, there’s something that almost everyone will love. Pizza!
As I’ve mentioned before, I think the first dance is incredibly romantic. Even in the kitchen of their home, Jessie and Jordan’s love positively glowed.
This was a small wedding, but one that was truly built on love. I love how they tied so much of their wedding into the life they have built together, and I’m touched that they chose me to record their wedding day. Thank you!
