Wedding Date: October 6, 2017

Maybe it was the initial connection through family and friends. Maybe it was the extended flirting and relationship-building before the first date. Maybe it was him nursing her back to health after a terrible bike accident. Or maybe it was all these seeds of love combined that lead to Eric proposing to Jessica that day on horseback. The two are already dog parents to a chihuahua and a german shephard, but they decided to make the family even more official in the fall of 2017. It was a rainy day, which changed ceremony plans. The pair also opted out of a first look, making her moment walking down the aisle the first Eric had laid eyes on her that day. A handkerchief, embroidered with the phrase, “I’m not crying, you’re crying” was used liberally during each’s hand-written vows. The reception tables, crisp white with hints of dark berries and blush from the bouquet, were made complete by table numbers featuring a photo of either the Bride or Groom at that age. How could one accurately symbolize Eric and Jessica’s wedding day? We’ll go with the cake topper showing the two of them mid-high five.
