Jessica and her bridesmaids spent all morning getting their hair and makeup done in the bridal suite of Union 12 – There is a little house that is part of the main facility that is perfect for brides and grooms to get ready in on their big day. After getting ready, Jessica put on her beautiful, bejeweled wedding dress! It was so detailed in all the right ways. Her bridesmaids wore dark red sequin dresses which matched the Christmas/holiday theme of the day perfectly – Jessica loves Christmas time! Jessica’s maid of honor spent the morning gathering letters and notes from the bridal party, family, and Brandon. All of the notes and letters were in a small book – She gave the book to Jessica as a sweet gift to hold on to forever – what a good way to remember the day! After getting completely ready for the wonderful day ahead, we took Jessica out on the paths behind Union 12 for the first look with her dad. Right after this father-daughter moment, Jessica had her first look with Brandon! Brandon was in awe of Jessica – It was an emotional moment for sure. I mean, just look at them? We took these two out on the beautiful property of Union 12 to take some photos of just the two of them before the ceremony. Let us tell you, Jessica knows how to work the camera! Both she and Brandon were so natural. Plus, these two laughed a lot… even at our bad jokes! You can easily tell just by being with these two for a few minutes that they make each other really happy. It started off not being too cold. Jessica and Brandon didn’t complain once about pictures outside. Jessica looked as if she had been modeling for years! After the sweet first looks and some camera action of the soon to be husband and wife, it was ceremony time!
The ceremony was outside on the patio of Union 12! By this time, it was pretty cold outside – even the Pastor joked with guests saying “gonna try to keep this brief because it’s freezing”! Despite the cold weather, there was nothing but warm feelings present at the ceremony. These two exchanged rings and vows, kissed, and we’re married! After the ceremony, we took wedding party photos, then it was time to party!
Jessica and Brandon knew everyone would be sick of meat and potatoes, so they catered in Mexican food for their reception! It was something different and totally hit the spot! Jessica made all of the table center decorations and decorated all of Union 12 in Christmas decorations. She loved the idea of having their anniversary be during a time of the year that she loved – and she loves Christmas! These guys had some great dance moves.
Union 12 is a really awesome venue for weddings because everything is in one location! The fact that we could do some late night photos of Jessica and Brandon by a beautiful stone firepit was really cool – You can’t do that anywhere else.
We loved getting to be a part of this special day and capture all of Jessica and Brandon’s love for each other. We hope you guys enjoyed your big day and enjoy looking back on photos of it. Best of luck to you guys!
