Jessica and Kody’s Loveland Estates wedding was such a gorgeous event! Every detail was planned perfectly and the vendor team worked together so well. I loved getting to know this sweet couple – their love was such a joy to witness.
Jessica is a (not) small town girl who fell in love with a boy from a small town – and ended up moving to one because of her love! The two of them actually now live in the small town of Pocahontas, IL, which is such a sweet town. And it actually happens to be the hometown of country music singer Gretchen Wilson. It also is where the venue, Loveland Estates, is located. Small towns are the best – everybody knows everybody!
With the proximity of the farm nearby, it made for a great starting point to the day. Jessica and Kody shared a very sweet first look on his parent’s family farm. We spent time on the farm for pictures before heading to their Loveland Estates wedding for the ceremony, reception, and more pictures.
Jessica and Kody each wrote each other love letters to read before the ceremony. They each wrote such sweet sentiments to each other. This provided a great moment to get centered and prepare their hearts for the wedding ceremony.
Jessica and Kody’s Loveland Estates wedding just happened to be the hottest day of the summer so far. It was so hot that poor Kody was sweating from his knees! Despite the heat, everyone was amazing. Jessica was the most laid back bride – nothing got to her! I never heard either Kody or Jessica complain – everyone was so happy.
Jessica and Kody followed up their Loveland Estates wedding with a honeymoon at Sandals Royal Barbados Resort in St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados – what a dream!
