Sometimes opposites attract… Jess is petite and bubbly, Brent is tall and usually pretty quiet. But despite a height difference of over a foot (so cute!), they have many things in common like their love for The Blackhawks, and certainly their love for each other! Jess rocked her look with a beautiful veil (Left Bank Jewelry!) and a smile from ear to ear, there was no shortage of laughs and good times. These two make a great pair and their friends and family were so excited to celebrate with them. Dena from Toast and Jam DJ’s kept the party going and my photo booth stayed busy all night- what a great day!
Jess was so excited to get married!
Their dog came by for a photo.
The guys were looking good.
These are my favorite- the perfect twilight while Jess danced for the camera.
Brent’s sister’s bar provided beverages on the way to the reception.
