Jessica and Jonathan are such a sweet couple. I had the pleasure of getting to know them while taking their engagement photos a few months ago at the Fort worth Botanic Garden in Fort Worth.

This couple had a beautiful intimate ceremony at the First United Methodist Church located in the heart of Arlington, Texas. I love all of the architectural details that this historical church has to offer, from the intricate doors to the stained-glass windows. Timeless and quaint.

Jessica and Jonathan wrote each other love letters to read before the big moment. They chose to wait to see each other for the first time during the ceremony. They met outside of the church entrance with the door between them. You could see the look of excitement and anticipation as this bride and groom held hands moments before saying “Ido”. What a moment!

The reception was down the street at The White Room. They started things off with the traditional first dance but they ended the night in a very unique way. They announced they were having a baby in July and then had the gender reveal. Such a great surprise! Everyone was overjoyed for this sweet couple!
