Erik and Jessica's wedding was a decade in the making. I felt absolutely honored that they chose me to capture this most important day in their relationship. So here are a few of my favorites from their wedding day.
I absolutely love this quiet moment with Jessica and her pastor shortly before the ceremony started.
I found it incredibly sweet that even though their relationship is far from new, Jessica still was emotional walking down the aisle to her future husband.
Jessica and Erik also did a beautiful job of including their two children in their wedding. Here they are lighting the unity candle as a family.
Their pastor made both Jessica and Erik write their own vows, which was incredibly touching. Before the wedding started, Jessica's pastor asked if she wanted to hold the microphone while reciting her vows. Jessica didn't. But she said could do it if Erik held the mic. It's a small gesture, but I thought it was incredibly telling of their relationship that in such an important moment, she knew she could get through it with Erik's help. I'm pretty sure the photo below was taken when Jessica mentioned in her vows how she patiently waited 10 years for this day to happen.
And then we were off for some photos in downtown Plymouth.
Their kids, by the way, are adorable.
Their cake looked good, but the massive sweets table they had totally stole the show.
The bouquet and garter tosses were fun to watch, full of great facial expressions and action shots.
Following that, there was dancing. Lots and lots of dancing, by guests young and old.
She was my absolute favorite. She just didn't want to leave the dance floor.
Jessica and Erik, thank you both so much for inviting me to be such an integral part of your big day. I had a wonderful time meeting you and your closest family and friends. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
