Jess & Mike- Married!

And now for the couple I've been dying to introduce you too.... 

You see Jessica and Mike together are adorable... as in ADORABLE. Seriously you can't help but love them. Jess has this smile that encapsulates her entire face and the way Mike looks at her when she unleashes that smile.. magic. just magic  Leading up to the wedding these two were thousands of miles apart.. Mike in New Hampshire and Jess here in Madison. Perhaps it's the distance, perhaps it's just the way they always are together? Whatever the reason for their magnetism it was evident the very first time we met... and I knew I loved them - together. If Jess had asked me to stand up in their wedding on that first meeting my answer would have been an emphatic YES. ;) You just can't help but to be sucked in by their love. 

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of their day. Much love you two!! And Mike.. if the job offer ever comes around to return to Madison take it. We're going to seriously miss you two around here. 

The tall Jess was stunning... :) 
Mike was looking pretty suave too... Love a man in a suit.  

They had the BEST wedding party!

AHHH.. you two are so cute together!


There is just something about the way lights can decorate a room... 

Jess & her dad... just love these father daughter moments! 

This was such a great party! Jess & Mike were so concerned about their guests having a good time
to the point that they even broke into an impromptu dance routine during their first dance. I 
personally think their worry was for naut.. I mean do they look like they are having a bad time?  

LOVE... favorite!

What was the most memorable part of your day?
Mike- Jess for the first time on our wedding day.
Jess- Too many to count, but a highlight was having my dad perform “I Loved Her First” by HeartLand.

What is your funniest memory from your wedding day?
Jess- I got nervous during the first dance because I thought it was boring the guests, so I encouraged Mike to break into some “improv” dance moves with me.

Any advice you’d share for future couples getting married?
There’s no right or wrong way to do a wedding. Be creative and plan it based on who you are as a couple.

Would you change anything about your day if you could?
Nope! We just wish the day lasted longer.

Any great vendor experiences to share? We were impressed with the professionalism of all our vendors, but felt particularly lucky to have Jennifer as our photographer. Aside from being an excellent photographer, she’s also a great person to spend time with.
