Jessica and Grant’s love story started a few years back when they were both attending medical school. Their story continued with a sweet proposal in Colorado last year and then planning a West Virginia wedding all the way from New Jersey. It could be very challenging to plan a wedding from out of state but with a great team of vendors and help from family and friends, everything came together so perfectly! Their rustic-meets-elegant fall wedding at Oglebay Resort was flawless from start to finish! And I loved capturing every minute of it! Even though rain was in the forecast for that Saturday, it held off until the reception so these two can have the wedding they always dreamed of. During the entire day, you could not only see but FEEL the joy and the love shared by the couple and by every single person in attendance. Everything was so special and so sweet – the little details, the birch tree cake, the dress (I mean how gorgeous is Jessica in her Sottero & Midgley dress?!), the toasts, the food, the atmosphere. But most importantly the way Jessica and Grant looked at each other. The way they cared for each other. The way they vowed to laugh and to love. Together. For the rest of their lives.
Jessica and Grant, from the moment we first connected, I knew you were exceptional people. Not just intelligent and beautiful, but kind and sweet. And you are so perfect for each other! Thank you so very much for trusting me with your memories. It was a great pleasure to serve you and your family. I hope you love looking back on your wedding day as much as I loved witnessing it. Here are just some of my favorite photos from your big day
