Jessica reached out to me exactly one month from her wedding date, and from there it was a whirlwind of planning meeting, touch-bases, and phone calls with her incredible vendor team to bring her vision to life. Because she chose the Hotel Crescent Court’s elopement package as a base, we had many of her vendors assigned to us, and we couldn’t have been happier with the group we started with: the HCC’s in-house catering and bar, LoveNotes for the ceremony, and Haute Floral (one of our very favorites!) for flowers. With a few additions – Mat Wulff for hair and makeup, Sarah Kate Photography, and the Royal Dukes Band to bring the party – the entire day came together like a dream.

From the very first day, Jessica was so much fun to work with. She had a clear vision of what she wanted and there was so much thought put into each and every detail, from her specially-ordered (and truly show-stopping) gown to her gorgeous, classic florals to the small moments that she made sure to share with her son, Hunter, as they added Matt to their sweet little family.

And family was such a big focus on the wedding day – including Jessica’s precious dog, Bentley, who helped her get ready on the morning of the wedding!

And did we mention this completely precious first look? The joy that Jessica + Matt felt on their wedding day was so palpable, and even though the January day was dark and cold, the entire party – from the small, intimate courtyard ceremony to the high-energy band set that went on long into the night – felt warm and so very full of love.
