Vision in White :: Jessica+Johnathan

Photos by Ariel Rene

Jessica and Johnathan are a Renaissance couple with sophisticated tastes that bridge European Old World to Modern Chic styling.  Jessica envisioned her wedding in shades of white – white fluffy flowers, fabrics and candlelight.  She wanted an elegant, classic foundation to wedding decor so that she and Johnathan could incorporate aspects unique to them as a couple (plus a ‘shot of Southern’ courtesy of cocktail hour in the Cedarwood barn.)  Jonathan’s career spans music and fashion, and Jessica is his beautiful Southern muse who enchanted him when they met on a rock music cruise in Miami.  Jessica resided in Nashville at the time, and Johnathan in Los Angeles, but he flew to Music City to visit a few weeks later. They shared their first kiss overlooking Nashville’s downtown skyline. After several cross country visits, Johnathan and Jessica  knew they were destined to spend their lives together and Jessica joined him in Los Angeles in 2011.

We are always touched by a man with a romantic disposition, and Johnathan proposed to Jessica in butterfly fluttering fashion. On a visit to Nashville, Johnathan set up a surprise ‘date’ for Jessica.  When she opened her eyes they were standing in the exact spot of their first kiss, only this time he proposed.  Johnathan had also gathered friends and family (some from California) to celebrate the moment.  Jessica says “It was the best night of my entire life.”   We are sure that it was, prior to June 7, when Jessica and Johnathan became husband and wife.  The magic of their love is reflected in these dramatic photographs by Ariel Renae.  Enjoy!
