John & Jessi | A Traditional Wedding Ceremony and Reception at St. John’s Military Academy and The Legend at Bristlecone in Hartland, Wisconsin.

August 6, 2019

Almost 10 years ago, John & Jessi began their love story. But they have known each other since 7th grade! These two have quite the history together already and I am utterly convinced 10+ years is only the very beginning of what will be MANY decades together as husband and wife!!

John & Jessi truly compliment each other so well and their friendship and love for one another is very evident to all those who know them. Throughout their day, there were so many ways I personally got to experience and witness this very special love. From the little things that might have gone unnoticed like the Hedgehog card John wrote his letter to Jessi in (her favorite animal) to the way he carried her dress and umbrella when needed as they moved about from location to location during the day. The way John cried literally the minute he turned around and laid eyes on his beautiful bride and soon-to-be wife. The glances Jessi would give John all throughout the day and the way her eyes just GLOWED with love and admiration for him (I think you will be able to see this in the photos!). To both speeches at the reception where the Maid of Honor and Best Man talked passionately about how much John & Jessi bring out the very best parts of one another – truly each other’s perfect complement and life partner. It is so inspiring to be surrounded by love like this and I am so excited for all life has in store for these two!

One other thing that really stood out to me on John & Jessi’s day was the incredible support these two have around them. I think I told them about 100 times on their day how amazing their bridal party / group of friends is!! John & Jessi are truly surrounded by people who LOVE them both as individual people and as a couple. They were such a kind, fun, and encouraging group of humans and if they plan to stick around John & Jessi for the rest of their lives, I have no doubt the brand new Dobson’s will thrive in whatever comes their way : )

So without further ado, enjoy some of our favorite moments from John & Jessi’s wedding day! Congratulations you two and thank you for allowing us to share in your very special day with you!!!!!

Thank you SO much to John & Jessi’s wedding day team!
