Triad Weddings Magazine – Jessica and John

January 7, 2017

Photography by Jodi Gray Photography

John and Jessica met at a party. Jessica can recall sitting on the couch asking her friends, “Who is that guy in the black V neck t-shirt?” She thought he was ‘hot’! Jessica admits that it was love at first sight for her. She knew he was the one right when she laid eyes on him.

John was moving to Charlotte for school that weekend and the two kept in touch while dating other people. Yet something always drew them back together. When John moved back home for work, the two began dating exclusively and the rest is history.

John proposed at their home. The night before Thanksgiving, he had candles lit and a heart-shaped pizza, and of course, champagne. He popped the question and Jessica, of course, said ‘Yes!”

The couple began planning for their January wedding at the beautiful Proximity Hotel. Although they didn’t have a specific theme they were going with, they incorporated the color of gold, lapis, and green floraIs.

On their wedding day, they had the only snow of 2017, which made for some stunning photo opportunities captured by Jodi Gray Photography.

‘Jodi Gray was above exceptional. She is one of our closest friends and we were honored to have her shoot our special day;’ shared Jessica.

“There is nothing we would change about our wedding day. It was perfect just the way it was! We had the right amount of people, the music was on point from start to finish, the cake was yummy, our officiant was so nice, and our event designer went above and beyond for us. It was a magical day!
