John and I have been good friends with Jessie and Dylan for a few years now. Jessie and Dylan are probably the nicest most welcoming people I know. Also the most outgoing and adventurous! When they announced they were going to have and baby and get married I think the whole city of Bentonville had a party! Jessie asked me if I would take pictures at the court house of their marriage. Of course I accepted, but told her if I'm taking the photos we were going to have a dress, flowers, and a gorgeous location.
So we put our DIY skills to the test! I sewed Jessie's white skirt, with room for the growing bump ;) Jessie bought the pretty lace top off Ebay. Dylan is such a dapper man that he already nice dress pants and vest, with a yellow bow tie! Jessie ordered flowers off SamsClub.com and purchased a few extras from Matkin's Flowers. I also snagged a few daffodils from friend's yards and rosemary from Jessie garden! The day before the wedding we sat on the floor in the kitchen and arranged the bride's bouquet, groom's boutonnière, and the floral crown. They turned out better than expected!
The day of the wedding it was a drizzly Spring day. But nothing would upset the mood of Jessie and Dylan's happiness! Myself, along with Jessie's friend, and sister helped her get ready with hair and makeup. At the Whitney Mountain Chapel we were greeted with close family members full of love for this couple. Jessie dad just happens to be the Minister of the chapel and presided the ceremony. You could feel how special this day was for everyone!
Congratulations Jessie and Dylan!
A couple months later, miss Claudia made her entrance into the world completing this new loving family of three!
