Meeting the parents has got to be one of the most nerve-wracking moments in any relationship. Luckily for Jesse, he already had the seal of approval since Jessica’s dad actually set the two of them up. Jessica’s father, Ken, is a Coast Guard flight instructor and Jesse was one of his students. Ken really liked Jesse and thought he had a lot in common with Jessica, so he passed his daughter’s number along… and Dad was right! During the reception, Ken was able to share the story from his perspective.

After their original plans were cancelled, the couple decided to get creative and paint pictures of their first date. Jesse took this opportunity to propose and added an orange helicopter with a banner that read, “MARRY ME JESS!” As soon as Jessica realized what Jesse was doing, she screamed “YES!” before he could even finish.

From jeannemarie photography:
“Jessica wore her mother’s veil and had shown me a similar image of Merri’s mother right before the ceremony. I asked Merri to go back to when her mother was adjusting her veil and share that with Jessica. I wanted to be sure I wasn’t just duplicating what was a moment but creating one all its own.”
