The Big Red Barn Wedding – Jessica & Jonathan

Jessica and Jonathan’s South Carolina wedding was full of unique details, and some genuinely stunning bride and groom portraits, this rustic Spring wedding day does not disappoint.

Jessica said that they met when they “went to high school together but never really spoke, in 2012 after Steeplechase we were both in downtown Aiken hanging out with some friends at a local bar, and we ran into each other. We were friends on Facebook, so we knew a bit about each other and from then we started talking and have been together ever since. This year Steeplechase will make five years together and our dating anniversary is on April 1st only a week before our actual wedding.”

When it came to the proposal, “Jonathan and I planned a trip to Hilton Head Island for a long weekend getaway. Just the two of us. I had no idea what he had up his sleeve. Our first night there we went to dinner and got back to our condo when he suggested taking a nighttime stroll on the beach. I agreed and off went. We walked for maybe an hour when we got back to the beach in front of the condo. He flickered the light off of the flashlight. I spun around asking what’s wrong? And he turns the light back on showing me this box with a diamond ring inside that spoke to my soul. He asked me would I be his forever? And after several “oh my God oh my God oh my God”, I said yes with tears flowing out of both eyes. I am not an emotional person at all but in that moment I felt everything. My past, my future. Our future. That was May 13th 2015, and we are finally tying the knot April 8th, 2017.”

It looks like a beautiful outdoor, rustic wedding day, full of joy and happiness. There were kisses and laughter in between every moment, and they finished off their South Carolina wedding photos with a sunset sparkler exit.

The invitations were handmade by the couple; all florals were handmade by the mother of the groom, Jessica’s pearl earrings and bracelet are her grandmother’s
