Jess and James first met after a company softball game, where James hit the ball right at Jess and it jammed her left ring finger! Obviously these two were meant to be together <3 As I got to know Jess and James better leading up to their wedding, I saw that when they are with each other everything else melts away.
Their adorable love story culminated on their wedding over Labor Day weekend at the gorgeous and exclusive Wynstone Golf Club in Barrington, Illinois. It was a beautiful sunny day, a perfect match to Jess' beautiful, sunny personality.
Jess' smile lights up any room, it was so sweet watching her get ready with her mom and sisters.
When the time came for Jess and James to see each other, their joy bubbled over into happy tears. These two were made for one another...
We explored the stunning grounds of Wynstone for romantic photos, I could have stayed out there taking pictures all day.
Jess and James kept their wedding ceremony short and sweet, capping it off with a celebratory toast with their guests.
Even though Jess and James chose not to have a wedding party, their closest friends delivered some of the most poignant, funny and heartfelt speeches.
We had the perfect view over the golf course of the sunset, so we snuck out during dinner for a few romantic pictures.
Their first dance together as husband and wife was SO romantic...
Afterwards we partied the night away, but took a few quiet moments just for the bride and groom...
Thank you, Jess and James, for opening your hearts to us and sharing this gorgeous day. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!
