Wedding Wednesday: Jessica & Ryan

5/24/2014  |  Private Residence

Jessica & Ryan's wedding was truly unique because of the incredible love they were shown by friends who put the whole day together for them. January 2014, Jessica and Ryan were pretty overwhelmed by the unexpected news that they were going to have a baby. It was definitely in their planned future together, but not at that time in their lives. Not to mention, Ryan had recently moved to Texas for a new job. It was the new plan for Jessica to move out to be with him as soon as possible but before doing so, they wanted to share the celebration of their marriage (and their future family) with their closest friends and family. This definitely gave the couple a seemingly impossible timeframe to plan and execute a wedding. KC Resewhr, a coworker of Jessica's at the time with a past in wedding planning, was heaven-sent, asking if she could plan their wedding... But not only did she plan their wedding, she called in a lot of favors from vendors she knew to get their rentals for free...Family friends, the Noells, opened up their beautiful home for their venue... Jessica's boss, Bj Fazeli at Fazeli Winery generously paid for all flowers...Jamie Netherland, a talented photographer her brother knew, agreed to be their photographer for close to nothing...Other family friends loaned them most of the decor needed... An acquaintance Jessica met through the winery orderedthem  all the wine they needed at cost... The couple was and still is to this day so humbled by the generosity and love they were shown during a time when they felt very overwhelmed. May 24th, 2014 was a gorgeous day to start the new and fast approaching chapter of their lives together
