I stuffed my pockets and gloves with hand warmers. Matt, Jessica, her personal attendant, a bridesmaid and myself hopped in the car and circled around Rice park disappointed that the Christmas lights had not been turned on yet. It was scheduled on the itinerary as 'time for magical photos.' We rolled down the window, the below zero air filled the car and we asked a valet guy what time the lights turned on. It was 4 o'clock. "Usually after dark around 7 or 8," he replied. I felt so bad, wanting to give Jessica the twinkle light photos I promised her months ago when we first met. I sat there trying to figure out what to do instead. Then Jessica blurted out "Dear Jesus and Grandma, please turn on the lights!" Without even a second passing by, every light in the park illuminated. Everyone one the car screamed out loud and high-fived. It was truly one of my top moments of my wedding season!
From start to finish this was a joy filled celebration, so much hugging and laughter. Jessica's positive and fun-loving spirit permeates any room she enters and you can't help but feel happy when you are around her. Watching these two together just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and I am really grateful I was the one to capture every second of it. Congrats Jessica & Matt!!
