It’s no surprise that this beautiful duo pulled off one of the prettiest fetes I’ve seen all week… they happened to meet at a wedding! Once you begin to peruse the images from Nikki Santerre, I think you’ll agree. And while you might be dying to know what venue they landed—you’ll come to find that their Big Day backdrop is the Groom’s parents’ estate. Ridiculously gorgeous, right? See it all in motion with the film from Heart Stone Films below!
From Nikki Santerre… No detail was without intention on Jessica & Stephen’s wedding day. Having planned her Virginia wedding on Stephen’s parent’s estate from their home on the West Coast, Taylor of Alyson Taylor Events perfectly executed Jessica’s vision for a “West Coast style” meets “East Coast tradition” event. A memorial table for Jessica’s late father, beautiful bar display including His and Hers signature cocktails, a mix of both modern and classic chandeliers, and lovely lounge furniture all made the tent come alive with elegance and joy. The couple also met at a wedding, and chose their reception band because they were playing at the event where they met. The emotion of Jessica and Stephen’s First Look, caught on film, was truly one of the highlights of the day as well.
