Today’s spring wedding at Black Diamond Gardens is one for the books! Jessica and Ben’s wedding was originally for May of 2020 and were one of the first couples forced to reschedule. Even more devastating, Jessica handmade so many ceremony and reception decorations with their wedding date on them. When they were forced to reschedule their wedding day, I remember having a phone call where I listened to Jessica vent about how stressful it was that everything had to be postponed.
It felt awful to not be able to change what was going on for her or any of my brides who would face the same difficult decision. When their original wedding day came around, Michael and I decided to surprise Jessica and Ben by looking a previous questionnaire we sent them in 2019 and getting their favorite snacks and some flowers from the store, then driving down to their house!
Now a year later and with all of that being said, Jessica and Ben’s wedding day was magical. The morning weather started out gloomy which made a backdrop of dramatic, dark clouds for their first look on the floating dock. The overcast didn’t last long and the sun came out right as the ceremony started. The blue sky and fluffy white clouds were so perfect, that I even snapped a photo and included it in the photos below.
If you know Jessica and Ben then you know they have a special way of expressing their love with words. Their vows beautifully outlined their love story and how they complement each other as individuals. Jessica and Ben’s officiant Dean puts it best: Jessica and Ben are a rare couple. When they are together, you can’t imagine them apart. They are an inseparable team…a singular whole that is greater together.
