Friendship is a wonderful thing to have… especially if the friendship includes introducing you to your future spouse. Jessica and her friend were going out for a night in Denver, when Jessica’s friend invited Nick to come out and join them for the fun. Nick, “having nothing better to do,” didn’t pass up the offer. As the night progressed Nick and Jessica started talking, Nick got Jessica’s number, and six years later Nick proposed to Jessica.
After a long day snowboarding at Arapahoe Basin, Nick and Jessica packed up the car and were about to head home. While Nick finished up packing the car, Jessica hopped into the car to get warm and then Nick tapped on her window signaling for her to come out and help him. Thinking nothing of it, Jessica got out of the car and found Nick down on one knee proposing. As the snow fell around them, Jessica said yes.
June rolled around and its time for Jessica and Nick to say “I do.” The Sanctuary Golf Course was the perfect place to get married for Jessica and Nick because of their love for the mountains and The Sanctuary overlooks Pikes Peak. Jessica and Nick kept things short and sweet for their guests. The wedding was nothing short of fun and was filled with tons of laughter. Jessica and Nick’s favorite color, blue, was incorporated into their day from the bridesmaids’ dresses to the details on the reception tables. They shared their first dance as husband and wife to State Radio’s “Blue Moon.”
Jessica loved sharing her day with her bridesmaids as they got ready together, saw her pace back and forth practicing her vows, and trying to keep her nerves at bay. Jessica and Nick both loved seeing each other when Jessica walked down the aisle. One of Nick’s favorite moments from the day was smashing of the glass after the ceremony, a tradition of a Jewish wedding. The reception was filled with heartfelt speeches from Nick’s parents, Jessica’s dad, the best man, and the maid of honor. Jessica and Nick were sent off with sparklers and in a white Rolls Royce, which made for an amazing send off.
Jessica and Nick spent their first days as husband and wife with a “mini-moon” to Ouray and Crested Butte. They filled their days with jeeping, hiking, and relaxing. They plan to take a full-fledged honeymoon in 2016 with a trip to Europe where they will travel to France, Germany and Italy.
Shannyn: How was working with Adam?
Jessica: I believe our wedding planner, Isabelle Kline, got us in touch with Adam. I would absolutely recommend him to other couples. I grilled him when we first met because I wanted to make sure we had the absolute best videographer and he let me ask him as many questions as I wanted without skipping a beat. He was very reassuring and clearly knows his craft well. He’s also incredibly professional and AMAZING at what he does (at least that’s what I judge from the other weddings he has shot, I can’t wait to see ours!).
We had the privilege of working with Laura Gravelle Photography on the wedding day of Jessica and Nick. Here are a few of her shots from the day:
