Nationwide Hotel Wedding

Erica and David’s wedding was such a fun ride from beginning to end. Erica’s family decorated her parent’s house where they got ready with lights, tulle and signs. It was so festive with a lot of family watching and helping Erica get ready. Amanda Mark, aka Beauty Mark LLC, was behind the helm for Erica’s makeup and hair. She literally put the most beautiful shade of peach lipstick on her that I’ve ever seen. Erica’s side-up-do was the perfect hair style for her dress.

Erica’s Ivy Bridal Studio dress was form fitting, contemporary, and oh so sophisticated. A gold belt with gold and diamond accented jewelry brought the whole outfit together and complimented Erica’s dark hair and rich skin tone perfectly. And what could be more elegant than topping it all off with just a dab of COCO?!

Hilliard Floral Design designed arrangements with soft vintage pink roses and white peonies. The bridesmaids wore black dresses, so the fresh bouquets really popped for this early August wedding. Erica was worried about not being photogenic, but they literally look like they’re out of the pages of a wedding magazine. I spy a potential future in modeling;)

From the moment Erica and David saw each other, it was ear-to-ear smiles for the rest of the day. At their reception, The Company Band had everyone out of their chairs and on the dance floor. Live music really brings any party up a notch, and this was no exception. At one point, people took turns throwing the bride and groom and their respective families in the air. A good party wouldn’t be anything without a little sugar (my favorite part of ANY wedding), and Sue Larson delivered in a big way with grand 4-tier cake that was adorned with fresh flowers.

A huge thank you to Erica and David for having me photograph your elegant day! I hope you love these as much as I do! XO Jess
