Breezy Washington Park Wedding: Chase & Jessie

Posted in: Wedding

It was a beautiful fall evening in October 2016. Kolten and I were walking back to the car after grabbing dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant downtown. As I looked up, I saw Chase and Jessie walking towards us. We had caught them. Blushing, they told us that they were on their first date, and while I have to admit that I had never thought of them together, the match seemed like a perfect  fit from the beginning.  Over the last year, it has been a joy to watch them fall deeply in love with each other.

A year later, their wedding day had finally arrived. Friends and family filled the church to help the couple prepare for their big day. As Chase and Jessie got ready, every spare moment seemed to be spent tying up loose ends and adding final touches to details. While the morning was going well, they both seemed a little flustered.

When it was time for the first look, Chase and I headed over to Washington Park to meet his beautiful bride.  I can still see the look on Chase’s face as he waited to see his bride for the first time. As they turned to look at each other, all of the stress and list of to do’s seemed to vanish from their minds and they were finally at perfectly at ease. It seemed like nothing could shake them now that they were together. It was a beautiful moment to witness and such a testament of the depth of their love for each other.

Chase & Jessie, your wedding day was absolutely perfect. It is undeniable how much you love each other and I hope that your love will continue to deepen with each passing year. Thank you for inviting me to be part of such a special moment in your lives.

Enjoy some of my favorites from their special day!!
