Washington Park Boathouse Wedding | Jessica & Nick

FILED IN: Weddings

Jessica & Nick were a pleasure from the start. They introduced me to a very special spot of theirs and it immediately stole my heart. Having such a place, especially for your engagement session, really adds something to the photos. Something that just you can’t put your finger on, but when you look at that photos there are no words. I knew that these two would have not only a fun wedding, but a heartfelt one too!

On the day of their wedding, Zach and I met them at St John’s Church for prep. The moment we walked in, we were greeted with warm smiles and hugs. What a way to start the day! Jessica was the calmest bride I think we’ve ever had. Her excitement was contagious as she spoke of Nick and their day that was about to unfold. Nothing fills my heart more than knowing that these two were head over heels in love and ready to make their commitment to each other. The ceremony was joyous and had everyone smiling. I’m telling you, this was one happy day! One of my favorite parts of the ceremony (besides them becoming husband and wife) was the bubble exit. These are quickly becoming a favorite of mine! It was so fitting for their upbeat day.

Thank you Jessica & Nick for having us there on your day. Being surrounded by your family and friends during the beautiful reception at the Washington Park Boathouse was unforgettable. The views were great, but the party… oh you guys know how to party! The wedding was a great representation of who you are and your love for each other. Zach and I wish you two a looooooong and happy marriage. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sheppard!
