Jessica & Sam’s wedding at Ashton Gardens was so beautiful! These two have known each other for quite sometime! I love stories like theirs. They have been such a fun couple to work with. Jessica & Sam met at a mutual friends house when they were fourteen, right before freshman year of high school! They were best friends all throughout high school.
Sam proposed to Jessica at his parents lake house, but that wasn’t the first pick. They were going camping and started to head to the camping grounds Sam had picked but it ended up being closed from a natural disaster that happened the year before. Thankfully, Sam had another spot in mind. As they drove into the site they were met by a guard controlling the flow of traffic, he informed them that the site was closed due to a tornado from the night before. Jessica took this as a sign that they shouldn’t camp. Sam semi agreed and they headed to his family lake house, but he made them camp in the backyard for the “experience”.
The next day when they woke up on their third anniversary. They watched the sunset and spent time together. As they were outside on the dock that afternoon Jessica realized that Sam had created quite the country music playlist, her favorite. As the sun set on the lake Sam asked her to marry him and she of course, said yes. So cute, right?
We had an engagement session with them a couple months ago which was so fun which you can see here. The entire wedding day was so much fun. Everyone was so excited and had a great time!
Jessica & Sam, Thank you so much for having me document this special time in your lives. You both are so much fun and I am so blessed to have been able to work with you and your families. I am so excited to be sharing your wedding day blog with you and everyone else. You two are such a beautiful couple.
