Friends!! I am so excited to share this day with you.
Yessica and Josue have a beautiful friendship, and it was the biggest honor to witness their ceremony and watch them vow their lives to each other. The bliss doesn't get any sweeter than this! The rain magically held off just long enough for the ceremony to be set up and take place, and then came back in as soon as the reception got going (thank you, Lord!). It was an amazing day at Horton Farms! Here's how it went from our view...
When we first arrived the view of the grounds was breathtaking!! Horton Farms has such a wonderful bit of land in NWA. We walked in to find Yessica checking on the reception venue, nearly all dolled up and ready to go. We later met Josue right before the ceremony. All the details were coming together right before our very eyes as Yessica and her bridesmaid got ready!
Yessica!! You are so beautiful!
Love Josue's smile!
Once the girls got ready, it was time for the ceremony to begin! The rain magically held out, so everyone gathered outside in the chapel area behind the barn. It was finally time to say I do!
And just like that, they were married!!
After the ceremony, since we knew we had a little time before the rain would return, we did some portraits before going into the reception to celebrate with the guests. The colors Yessica chose looked STUNNING on this cloudy day, being bold and bright against the dark clouds. The lighting couldn't have been prettier for our quick photo time.
Love this one of the guys. 😄
I loved seeing Yessica smile every time Josue wrapped his arms around her. They are so in love!
Then, we headed into the reception! Candles and jeweled decor sparkled on all the tables. My favorite decor item of the night: the cake (you'll understand why when you see it; it was absolutely beautiful!!). There were games, performances, videos, singing, and beautiful toasts made to the couple. The food was delicious, and every guest wanted a beloved photo with the bride and groom in the down time between events. You could tell this couple was so loved by their guests!
This was my favorite part of the night: a friend had complied a video slideshow of Josue and Yessica to show on their wedding day. Yessica was in tears over it (and I was in tears just watching her be in tears!). It was a beautiful moment!
This cake was amazing, in look and in taste! Can you believe that only one tier of one cake was remaining at the end of the night?? It was a hit!
Congratulations on a beautiful start to a beautiful new season, Josue y Yessica! We adored getting to know you more. We wish you the best, Dr. and Mrs. Gonzalez!
