St. Paul Wedding: Jess + Ivan

“So when did you know you loved Ivan,” said one of her bridesmaids. “Boy, put me on the spot! I think I knew right away, but he definitely said I love you first,” said Jess as she smiled. She has a certain classy, sophisticated poise about her. A poise that made Ivan fall head over heels. Their love is kind, pure & overflowing. You can tell in the way they interact. The way they look at each other with ease & comfort. They gave each other cards & gifts the morning of their wedding. Jess sat quietly in a different part of the suite away from her bridesmaids reading the letter Ivan so carefully crafted. As a couple tears ran down her fresh make-up face; one could easily tell this was the man of her dreams.

Their wedding was a certain kind of city chic, with their style coming to life in all the details. They wed at the St. Paul Cathedral over looking the city scape. As they said their I Do’s, walking excitedly out the door; they paused for a moment to take it all in…

It was time to party the night away with close family & friends. If it’s one thing that Ivan loves just as much as Jess, it’s dancing. That is his THANG! One of his best friends joked that before Ivan met Jess, they always went out for a night of partying & instead of picking up girls Ivan always said, “DUDE, I just want to dance!” And that is what he did pretty much the entire night.

Jess & Ivan, cheers to the next chapter in your life. Your love shines so bright it’s palpable. You are genuine to the core, kind & sweet. You two have become more than my clients, you have become friends. I hope you are enjoying Italy to the fullest! Much MUCH love to the both of you!
