Succop Conservancy Wedding
Photos from Jesica and David’s Succop Conservancy Wedding.
Talk about fate intervening: Jes and David went to the same university in North Carolina. They even rode the same bus most mornings, but never really met. A few years passed and they both ended up in Boston, where unbeknownst to either of them they were neighbors. One evening Jes showed up on David’s porch, uninvited, while he was getting ready for a barbecue. They immediately recognized one another and the rest, well, led them to Succop Conservancy last summer.
Like I said in my last post, I’m incredibly fortunate to work with people who are so open to sharing their love with each other, with their families, and friends. It’s a joy to be able to tell their story and to be included in their love and joy.

An Outdoor Ceremony
Little brothers! David’s niece and nephew Cora and Jude were the “Flower Kids” for the ceremony.
Bob and Jes were cracking each other up the whole way down the aisle.
Jes and David exchange an emotional glance as she is presented by Bob and Jacque.
Jude holds his dad Jon’s hand as Charlene, the officiant, addresses the couple.

A tear falls down Jes’ cheek as she and David exchange vows.

I guess this is why they call it a sweetheart table (Lisa’s photo)
High-five! (Lisa’s photo)
Jes and Bob dance to “The Cover of the Rolling Stone” by Dr. Hook. It was a song that they’d listen to and sing together as Bob would drive Jes to school when she was a young girl.
Keeping with the picnic feeling of the reception, there were games available for the guests to play.

And lots of dancing.
As the dance circle formed, Jacque busted out her favorite moves.
David learned that there are risks involved if you’re going to break dance!
It didn’t take him long to recover. He and his brother Chris must have been big fans of “House Party” when they were kids.
One Last Portrait
Details can tell an important part of the story. This stained glass window was from the church that Jes’ parents and grandparents were married in. The family acquired it when the church was torn down. They used it as the backdrop for their ceremony, but I thought it might make an interesting picture once the evening drew to a close. It was the last photo of the evening.
I hope that you enjoyed this fantastic Succop Conservancy Wedding. Here’s another one you’ll like.
