Married: JC & Esther (Part I)

Alright, welcome to the eye candy smorgasbord that *is* JC & Esther’s wedding. Now right here is where I would usually write an intro, giving you a glimpse into what these two are like as a couple. But for JC & Esther, I think their intro best belongs with Part II: their first look. Because their first look was everything that they are together: real, heartfelt, inspiring. So you’ll just have to wait for that! But for now, let’s do our stretches and get warmed up for tomorrow with a lil’ “getting ready” intro! Ready? Let’s go!

Esther’s stunning dress was handmade for her by JC’s Aunt Norma. Every stitch was perfectly Esther!

Justin grabbed this banging shot of Esther’s ring, which is GORGEOUS!


While Esther was getting her makeup done, JC was hanging out with his guys where they were doing a tasting of some of the most fabulous beers on the planet. Our favorite is the one in the middle (much more on this to come!)


As JC was getting ready, Esther had this letter delivered to him…

Little did Esther know that JC had some tricks up his own sleeves. He texted her and told her to look in the drawer, where she found this box. Inside was a book with pictures from their proposal. The kicker? She had absolutely *NO* idea that anyone had been there taking pictures of the proposal which happened over a year ago. JC held on to that secret the entire time and waited to surprise Esther with the book on their wedding day. How amazing is that?! And oh yea…as an added bonus: a little blue box!! This is Esther calling JC in shock.

Esther has the most beautiful curly hair

Esther was SO cute when she turned around to show everyone. LOVE that face!!

Esther’s sister got her this card


Esther you are so beautiful!

We’ll leave you with a lil’ anticipation as we get ready to head off for the first look. Stay tuned!!
