Jessica + Lee’s wedding was the perfect way to start off 2023. I absolutely ADORE this couple and their wedding day was such a joy to document. Jessica envisioned a classic, romantic, elegant celebration with an emphasis on fun. I’d say that they absolutely got what they wished for!
The girls spent the morning getting ready at the home where Jessica worked as a nanny many years ago, which was such a fun and special detail. One of the kids she nannied is now a teenager who plays violin – so naturally she was the one who provided music during cocktail hour, which was another fun personal detail.
Jessica + Lee opted for a traditional aisle reveal and seeing Lee’s face as he watched Jessica walk down the aisle towards him was so so special. They said “I do!” at Bethel United Methodist Church, where Lee has been a member for many many years. Jessica’s youth minister from high school officiated their beautiful ceremony and I just love how intimate and personal their ceremony was.
Their reception was so much fun! The Midnight City Band is always a blast and they actually were playing at Red’s Ice House on Shem Creek the night Jessica + Lee got engaged – so of course they chose them to play at their wedding as well. The dance floor was packed all night and it was just such a beautiful day from start to finish.
Enjoy some of my favorites from Jessica + Lee’s wedding at the Cedar Room in downtown Charleston SC…
