A Sweet Summer Soiree: Jessica + Clifton
"When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible." - When Harry Met Sally As I entered into the hotel room of dolled-up ladies, covered in blush chiffon and smiles painted from ear to ear, I knew Jessica and Cliff were in for the most perfect day. Throughout the day, emotions of pure joy filled everyone, as they entered into every ounce of this precious day these college sweethearts had been working up to for so long. Classic, soft pastels and clean sprays of roses filled the aesthetic of Jessica's vision, and it could not have painted a more lovely picture.What struck me most throughout the course of the day, was the obvious, uplifting support system of loving friends and family that so evidently surround Jessica and Cliff.
Jessica gifted Cliff with a beautiful, engraved Bible to mark the start of their journey together as a family.
The entire day was truly painted like a pastel dreamland.
Perhaps my favorite moment of the day was when Jessica and Cliff took a moment, without seeing one another, to grasp hands and pray together. Such a graceful, pure start to a lifetime together.
After the ceremony, we stopped for a few moments to capture some sweet portraits of the newlyweds at a spot every Southeastern alum knows well. Seeing as the two of them have made so many memories, friendships, and accomplishments on these grounds, it was only fitting. Jessica and Cliff, thank you, truly, for entrusting me with documenting the enchanting start to your life together.
