Jessica and Andrew // The Vintage Rose

Jessica and Andrew are incredibly kind people. Once I met their families, I understood where their kindness comes from. After the wedding party & family photos at the park, Jessica's father walked around with a box of sandwiches and snacks, making sure everyone was eating and staying hydrated. I love moments like that, in between all the events going on. When I arrived for the getting ready coverage, there was this sense of nostalgia in the air. Jessica and Andrew purchased a house a mile or two away from his parents’ house. Jessica grew up near the area as well. They've known each other since middle school and went to prom together. In the video, Jessica's dad recounted his first impression of Andrew when meeting him as an 8th grader. It was one of the best things I've ever heard. While Andrew was getting ready at his parents’ house, it was charming to hear all the baseball stories his family and friends watch together. Everyone was so close and tight-knit. They are family oriented, and, most of all, people oriented. They both have service based jobs which take a tremendous amount of goodwill character to have. Andrew is a teacher, Jessica is a nurse, while Andrew's dad is a firefighter. In an era that seem to be uncertain and unstable, Jessica and Andrew have found a way to cultivate a way to keep their lives simple and family oriented in a way that enhances the quality of life. Andrew was upbeat and had a smile on his face the entire day. Jessica radiated with confidence , happily seeing it all come together. I am so fortunate to have met these two and be a part of their special day. 

Jessica and Andrew, thank you for choosing us!
