We have been very close friends with Jessica and her family for years, and when they asked us to photograph Jessica and Josiah’s beautiful winter wedding, we were more than honored! We knew how much this day had been anticipated, not only by Jessica and Josiah, but by their families as well, and we couldn’t wait to witness such a special marriage between two wonderful people.
Jessica and Josiah like to say that this wedding has been in the making for over 20 years since these two families have known each other since they were babies. They grew up together, but soon Jessica and her family moved to Kentucky and started a new life there. But when Jessica went back to Memphis for school, Jessica and Josiah’s friendship began again with a date to a coffee shop, and soon some suppressed feelings were rekindled :) It didn’t take long for everyone to realize that all of the life changing events that had occurred were just part of God’s plan to bring two wonderful individuals together in a beautiful way. Within months of that first date Josiah was down on one knee, and Jessica was overjoyed to be marrying the man she’d been eyeing since she was old enough to notice them.
Not only were we so excited to be able to be a part of such a beautiful love story, but we were also thrilled as photographers to be able to document such a stunning wedding! Since Jessica had been planning this day since she was a little girl, all of the details were planned to a T. She wore the dress she’d had picked out for years, a myriad of adorable coffee themed details representing their first date filled the reception, and soft winter colors of grey and blush gave everything the soft, cozy, and classy feel that it the couple so well. It was obvious that this day had been planned with love, and we couldn’t have been happier for them!
Jessica and Josiah, we wish you guys all the best, and are so happy that we were able to play a role in your special day! We love you both!
