Jessica + Michael | Elegant Lewiston, NY Wedding

As the rain poured down from morning to night, we can’t imagine a more peaceful and excited bride, a more thrilled groom, or a more meaningful day.  Jessica and Michael’s day in Lewiston, NY was breathtaking in more ways than one.

We know Jess and Mike as faithful, passionate followers of Christ, and hard working, determined entrepreneurs.  They both embody so much strength and have such influence individually, that seeing them together as a team not only makes sense, but is really inspiring.  It was obvious that while planning their wedding, the emphasis was on celebrating and thanking all of their loved ones for the support, prayers, and leadership they each have poured out onto Jess and Mike.  With a huge amount of help from Michael’s amazing cousin Bridget, their affair was thoughtful, romantic, and decadent.  With the neutral pallet, a reception filled with fresh flowers, and a bride in pink, this wedding was a dream to shoot.

One of our most significant memories of their day was the words poured out by family.  During Jessica’s Dad Iain’s toast, he shared about the time he knew Michael was the man for his little girl.  At a family gathering celebrating Mike’s birthday, each of Jess’s siblings and parents shared an affirmation over his life.  When it got to Jess, she simply shared that Michael made her feel safe.  That kind of security, the gentle care with which Mike treats Jessica, was what sold Iain, and as he shared, what brought the crowd to tears.  That theme continued as Lizzy, Jess’s sister, shared her Maid of Honor Speech:

“To the most beautiful bride the World will ever know, my best friend forever: You are my rock, my safe zone, the person I can be in the same room with for hours, without even saying a word and somehow everything is perfectly okay. (And I know exactly what you’re thinking). Simply put: our chemistry is definitely more than science.  As opposite as we are, you have always made me feel like I’m okay. You exude security and that is something the world needs more of! A world full of Jessica’s would be a very wonderful one; quite beautiful too.  I am more than confident I can speak on behalf of every girl I know when I say that 1. You always know what’s wrong in any situation and 2. You know the perfect thing to say in that moment when everything else is falling apart. All girls raise your hand if Jess has ever helped you at your lowest or taught you a valuable life lesson. I need to use my hands, feet, legs, arms.”

And Jessica’s brother Alex shared how he came to know Michael’s character by seeing the fruit in his life, how he saw Michael’s life in the Spirit take shape… from being inspired to inspiring others.  Knowing Jessica and seeing her greatness, he is now overjoyed to see Michael, her kindred spirit, come by her side as they live bravely on the edge, forging their own way, and encouraging others to chase fervently after their passions.  “You two are pioneers and I am completely confident that together you will reach your dreams.”

To sum things up, Mr and Mrs Williams had an awe-inspiring day, and we could not feel more privileged to have been a part of it.  There is an enormous amount of photos from their day, and we tried our very best to narrow it down to a reasonable amount for their story here on the blog.  We hope you love these moments and you find yourself smiling ear-to-ear.

All our love,
The Irvins
