This wedding marks our final Covid reschedule – these two got engaged right before the pandemic, on New Year’s Eve in 2019 (heading into 2020) – so they planned a nice long engagement and a wedding for August of 2021. But Covid had other plans – and they FINALLY had their ceremony and reception in August of 2022!
Jessica’s planning and style was impeccable. She had 7 bridesmaids and 2 bridesmen – and 4 of these attendants were even from her elementary school classes. I loved hearing about Jessica growing up – going to White Oak Park and the local Dairy Queen when she was little (she and Ian eat quite healthy now, which her dad was joshing her about during his speech). Ian’s a quiet guy and I love their energy and spirit together.
The flowers were beautiful, as was Heinz Chapel. The weather called for rain but of course it didn’t! The florals were absolutely amazing and Jessica picked some of the top vendors – Alex Robba’s cake looked perfect and May Chester’s design around the sweetheart table was perfection.
The day was humid – and one of my favorite moments was when we were taking some evening shots in the fireplace room. Ian had his hand on Jessica’s shoulder and it was just one quiet moment to have together before they headed back into the dance party, where Ian scooped Jessica up for the camera and swirled her around – making a perfect ending shot to a perfect day.
Note to the couple:
Jessica and Ian, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
