“I knew I had met my best friend, but what I didn’t know is that I had also met the love of my life”

This day was 10 years in the making. From a high school born friendship that carried them through college. To a causal “me too” from Matt in response to Jessica’s first confession of attraction to him as “more than a friend” amid the streets of London. To finally, Matt asking Jessica to be his wife on the second day of fall in 2015. All of those moments, and the many in between, led up to this moment where they would commit their lives to one another forever – for the second time.

Matt and Jessica’s story is one marked by many highs and lows. With over 15 years of combined friendship and courtship, one might expect as much. But this past year has thrown many unexpected curve balls as Matt has battled leukemia. Matt and Jessica had planned a late summer wedding last year, but with Matt’s health, they decided to push up the legal marriage ceremony and push back the celebration, thus “getting married” twice! But this day in all of it’s anticipation, was one of the most beautiful celebrations we have ever had the privilege of capturing!

From their heartfelt vows, to a perfectly choreographed first dance, and even a cameo by their pup, Richie, we couldn’t have handpicked two people who are better compliments to one another! Matt and Jessica, we are so grateful for you two and are honored to have had the opportunity to tell your story. We hope these happy memories fill your hearts with so much joy as your reminisce over your perfect day!
