With all this rain we are getting, we are dreaming of sunny skies and warmer weather. What a perfect time to feature a gorgeous destination wedding! Jessica and Jacob’s story began back in 2015 on Saint Patty’s day at Sycamore Brewing in Charlotte. The two instantly clicked and quickly knew they were in for a lifelong adventure together. Jessica has said that they never went through an ‘awkward’ phase, as many new couples do.
Jacob popped the question in their favorite close-to-home vacation spot, Cherry Grove, South Carolina. They continued the beachy theme by heading down to Punta Cana on their two year dating anniversary for the big day. Along with their closest friends and family, the couple were wedded on March 21st, 2017 at the gorgeous Majestic Elegance Resort. (Where was our invite??) They celebrated on the beach, and danced to Drew Holcomb’s “Hung the Moon”.
The bride wore the ‘Alana’ dress by Watters’ Willowby Collection. The gown was a gold-toned fit and flare, with delicate Elysian lace. Jessica paired a flower headband for the perfect beachy bohemian vibe. Talk about a great gown for an outdoor destination wedding!
Looking back, Jessica has said that her favorite aspect of the big day was having all their favorite people together in such a beautiful place. Her advice to future brides is to” relax!! It is your big day and you should not worry about what anyone else thinks.” Except maybe the groom, of course! 😉
The couple is now happily settling into married life. They enjoy going to dinner and coming home to just relax with their one year old schnoodle puppy. Jessica is now working as a clinical nurse educator and Jacob is working for a construction supply company, as well as doing realty on the side. Busy guy!
Jessica and Jacob, we wish you the best of luck! Your wedding was absolutely stunning and we are so happy we were able to be a part of it!
