It was a girls night out that included an Av’s game followed by drinks at Spill when the girls night out would be interrupted by a guy who wouldn’t take no for an answer. Chris came and sat by Jessica and wouldn’t let her out of the booth until she gave him her number. Chris called Jessica that weekend and scheduled a date for the following Friday. The Thursday before their date, Chris called to confirm and Jessica took the call in the locker room before dance practice for the Denver Nuggets. Chris’ grown up actions led to Jessica and her teammates “Googling” Chris to get the 4-1-1 on him. The date on Friday night led to five more dates that week and from there the rest was history.

It was a beautiful summer day in June when Jessica and Chris went on a hike at Mount Falcon in Evergreen. Jessica and Chris stopped to take a picture of the beautiful scenery when Chris started the video camera on his phone to record the proposal. When Chris was about to take the picture, he got down on one knee and popped the question. Jessica had only one word, “Yes!” After crying and celebrating, Jessica and Chris final took their picture. Chris told Jessica that she was literally the last person to know about the proposal. At the moment Jessica didn’t think much about Chris’ statement until they arrived back home and all of their friends and family were waiting for them to celebrate their engagement.

Chatfield was the perfect location to bring a little piece of Kansas, Jessica’s home state, to Denver. The open fields, barn, and dancing under the stars was just what Jessica was looking for and it provide the perfect scenery for the big party that Jessica and Chris wanted for their wedding. The night was complete with BBQ, field games and dancing. Jessica dubbed the day as “barn glam” with lace, burlap, pearls and sunflowers. Guests received sunglasses as their party favors that provided protection from the sun at the ceremony and was a great accessory for the photo booth. Jessica and Chris loved their first look before the ceremony and being surround by all of their friends and family that provided them with lots of love and laughter.

The big party came to an end when Jessica and Chris honeymooned in Jamaica and laid on the beach everyday and took the opportunity to relax. In the next five years they see themselves enjoying life with friends and BBQs and promoting their dog, Bitty, to big sister with some kids of their own.

Shannyn: How was working with Adam?

Jessica: Adam is amazing! I met him last summer when he filmed one of my best friends weddings and there was no question who I was using when I got engaged. He is so fun to be around with such a positive energy; it was a blast to have him around all day! Every single one of his videos makes me cry…he is so super talented! I would absolutely recommend him.

I had the privilege of shooting alongside Ashlea with New Bloom Photography. She was super fun to work with and took some great images. Here are just a few highlights from the day:
