We looked out the window with the beautiful view of Rice Park in downtown St. Paul……the hazy clouds and grey, fall day was waiting outside! :) But inside Jessica stood with her back to the door….with a deep breath, she smiled. As Nick entered the room, she turned around and in an instant both smiles and tears came to their faces! :) The sheer joy of their eye connection and the fact that both of them realized that TODAY was the day that began the rest of their lives, was an amazingly touching moment! :)
Jess radiated beauty with her fabulous red lipstick, ammmmmmaaaazing dress and even prettier smile….there were MANY times that I caught Nick glancing over to catch a glimpse of his lady! It was adorable! :)
The remainder of the day was full of celebration and love from everyone….starting with an intimate ceremony amongst the pillars and chandelier light at the James J Hill Library, followed by an amazing Vegan dinner and appetizers from Common Roots Catering and touching speeches and dancing to round out the night. It truly was a fabulous day that we just LOOOOVED being a part of! :)
PS….check out the groomsmen’s socks! :) Nick LOVES socks, so naturally it was appropriate for all of them to wear wacky and amazing ones! :) Great idea, eh?!
