Jessica and Collin met over racks of Cleveland Indians shirts and Chief Wahoo bobble heads. They were just out of college and working in the Indians' merchandise department, which I personally think is a fantastic way to meet. :) After a couple outings with co-workers, they went out just the two of them. The rest, as they say, is history.
"After six years, Collin truly feels like a partner to me and [I know] that we can take on any challenge or celebration and it be that much better because we are facing it together," Jessica said.
The big challenge for these two has most likely been getting past the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry (only half kidding). Collin is the most devoted OSU grad you'll ever meet, and even though Jessica grew up a Michigan fan, he's pulled her over to the scarlet and gray. I'm pretty sure that compromise equates a successful marriage. :)
Jessica and Collin, thank you so much for trusting me to document your day the way you envisioned it. I wish you guys years and years and years of happiness!
Portage Country Club is an absolutely beautiful place!
So pretty, Jessica!
The flowers, by The Budding Tree, were to die for.
Collin wore his grandpa's cufflinks. :)
One of the best first looks ever!
Jessica, you are stunning! Love this one!
Jessica was such a good sport with this cake smashing. ;)
Jessica's dad loves his daughter so much!
