Jessica and Zack clicked right from the start. The two have so much in common - so many of the same interests and passions. One of their loves is the beach. In fact, every vacation that they take together, they try to squeeze in some beach time!
The proposal just had to have a connection to the beach as well. Zack proposed during a fabulous trip to the Caribbean. The two made a last minute decision to vacation with her sister and her husband on St. John. Before the other couple arrived to the island, they decided to drive to one of their favorite beaches. But Zack passed the entrance, telling Jessica he wanted to take some photos first at a famed lookout spot, Peace Hill. When they reached the lookout location, Jessica turned around to find Zack on one bended knee, asking for her hand in marriage. Her sister and her husband were so happy to arrive later to celebrate, along with a surprise, her parents as well! What a beautiful place to be celebrating an exciting new beginning!
Jessica and Zack prepared for their special day at the Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia. Aleksandra and Jennifer from Aleksandra Ambrozy Makeup & Hair did a fabulous job getting everyone dolled up for the big day! Jessica and Zack were sure to take some time out afterwards to exchange beautifully written cards. Before heading to the ceremony location, they shared a touching first look at the 18th Century Garden at Independence National Historical Park. It was clear to see just how excited they were to finally see each other!
Jessica’s wedding gown was a gorgeous strapless satin gown with a trumpet silhouette and beautiful beading on the bodice. She was such a stunning bride! Her bridesmaids wore matching gowns with a sheer, flowing design, perfect for an early summer day. Each held a delicate white bouquet of roses from Petals Lane. Zack and his groomsmen looked so sharp in their matching black tuxedos with coordinating white rose boutonnieres.
Their beautiful ceremony took place at the historic house museum, Powel House, in Philadelphia. The two were wed in the lovely period garden under a magnificent, white floral covered arch created by Petals Lane. Although rain was in the area, we were so happy that it held off for this wonderful outdoor ceremony!
Then it was time to celebrate at Cescaphe’s Tendenza! We love the chic, glamorous atmosphere at Tendenza, with its amazing crystal chandeliers, exposed brick walls, stainless steel columns and violet uplighting. Check out that amazing cake from Cescaphe. It was half covered in glitter, which coordinated wonderfully with their modern, glitz and glamour theme.
Christina Hill from Chill Weddings did an awesome job organizing and helping to create the perfect wedding event for Jessica and Zack. For the evening’s entertainment, the Janis Nowlan Band wowed the guests and kept the energy soaring high all evening! Jessica and Zack and all their family and friends definitely had the time of their lives!
Congratulations to Jessica and Zack!
