Jess & Chris // A rustic barn wedding

"We love the things we love for what they are."

Jessica & Christopher are really just professional lovebirds.

Chris can make Jess smile so big, her nose scrunches up and she can’t stop giggling. Chris is always there for Jess, on good days or bad, to provide a warm hug or a laugh. On this rainy forecasted Saturday in August, Jess & Chris basked in the sunshine underneath their alter adorned with yellow flowers, confessed their love for each other and vowed to be soulmates for the rest of their lives. They celebrated with their family and friends, and stole kisses and held hands as they danced in the open pasture. Jess made almost every detail and decoration you see in the photographs -what a talented lady! Their rustic barn wedding fit their personality as a couple perfectly, and they (and grandma!) danced the night away. At the end of the night, instead of a sparkler exit, they received an epic lightning storm and pouring rain - a seriously nod from Mother Nature wishing them good luck!

Sweet really is an understatement to describe this couple - and I have no doubt that their marriage will be filled with so much optimism, joy, and love.

Hugs and kisses, Jess & Chris!
