Jarvis & Jessica said "I do" at the modern & beautiful Streamsong Resort back in August. Surrounded by their friends and families, they celebrated their love and shared some super sweet moments. Scroll on for more!
When Katie arrived to Jessica's room, Jessica was relaxing on the bed with her grandmother, exchanging gifts and telling stories. One of the gifts Jessica received was a "boudoir" album from Jarvis. It was quite hilarious and made for some great laughs! Little did Jarvis know at this point that Jessica had done an real boudoir session with Katie and that she used those images to create an album for him as a gift. Keep scrolling to see his reaction...
As Jarvis was looking through the album from Jessica, he looked up at Jake and said "am I supposed to be looking at this?!"
Jessica's bridesmaids wrote short notes for Jarvis and handed them to him as he walked down the aisle. We're not sure what they said but they definitely made him laugh and blush!
Those rainclouds. And the rainbow. HOW?! Thank you Florida for giving us crazy summer weather.
In reality, we had to rush these portraits because those clouds were moving in fast. Luckily, these two are so photogenic and made our jobs easy!
Streamsong is located on a 16,000 acre property in Central Florida on what used to be a phosphate strip mine. From what we've heard, the mining is what created these hills, which we made good use of during Jarvis & Jessica's engagement session.
FROM THE BRIDE & GROOM
What were some of your favorite memories from your wedding day? I loved getting ready with all my girls in the morning and that throughout the day my soon to be husband was sending up little gifts every hour to let me know he was thinking about me.
What were some of the funniest memories from your wedding day? Breyton twerking on the dance floor, Jonathan with a napkin around his head, emily catching the bouquet, Tim's karaoke skills, the little kids dancing all night long, my flower girls trying to pick up the flowers after they already tossed them, Kinley wearing her sunglasses throughout the ceremony, and so much more!
Advice for future brides: Enjoy each moment and enjoy each other! It goes by so fast. There are going to be things that don't happen the way you had planned and that is ok. At the end of the day all that matters is each other!
Advice for future grooms: Enjoy the day, enjoy hanging out with your groomsmen, don't drink to much, have fun, enjoy your wife to be, and don't sweat the small stuff!
