To know Jessi well, seeing her interact with her students is a must. She is the kind of teacher whose kids crowd around her, the kind of person who stops to hug them as she walks down the aisle during her own wedding, and the kind of person who everyone loves to be around. Charles has the exact same gift with the people who surround him, and together their personalities are simply magnetic. Both are completely in love with each other and, most of all, excited to serve the Lord together as they become husband and wife.
For a gorgeous summery day in July Jessi chose teal accents to highlight her unique and fun demeanor. The ladies dressed in the same color as they surrounded Jessi, each one honored to stand by her side as she married the man of her dreams. Her gorgeous bouquet was filled with pink and white roses, set against her dress' lacy overlay, making a beautiful combination for an absolutely stunning bride. On top of that, when Charles and Jessi kissed at the altar it was the first one they shared - EVER! Waiting for that moment made the day and the entire wedding absolutely unforgettable.
Charles and Jessi, we are absolutely smitten with you two! The way you two found each other - from your Bible study to a happenstance coffee date to finding out you even lived in the same neighborhood - shows that you were always meant to be together. It was an honor for Nathan and me to witness your special day, and we pray many blessings on your future.

Their first kiss...EVER!
After that magical moment, it was off to Cedar Point Country Club for the reception and portraits.
They had adorable cotton candy wedding favors for their guests.
The sky was purple as the sun was setting, and we took full advantage of the beautiful light for sunset portraits.
Afterwards, the guests danced until the last song played and Charles and Jessi left to begin their adventure together.
