Jessica & Andrew, Part I

I first met Jessica Keane and Andrew Malek in August 2008 when they were visiting Traverse City for their engagement party. Appeasing Jessica's mom, they agreed to a meeting with me and sparks flew! (Little did we know Jessy and I would become good friends after that meeting.) We were fortunate enough to have planned and designed their entire wedding along side Jessica's dear parents Shawn and Coleen Keane.

The love this couple shares is the real deal and they are just as beautiful on the inside (seriously!). Since their wedding Jessica and Andrew have faced what few adults our age have to face- the loss of a parent. Two months after their wedding day Jessica's father passed away. With Jessica and Andrew living in Arizona during the planning process most of our face-to-face meetings involved Jessica's parents.

I learned so much from Shawn in our informal meetings and feel blessed to have known him, for the short time I did. I approach my job differently since their wedding- Jessica's last real time she spent with her dad was during her wedding. Looking back I can see the tapestry that God wove around their wedding and I am so thankful for the role He chose for us to play.

Shawn wanted Jessy and Andrew to have their dream wedding and was just as excited as I was when talking about linens, lighting and logistics! It was wonderful getting to know Jessica through her parents as well as through her calls and emails. Andrew was never a silent groom as his style is just as polished as Jessica's. Through the planning and design process I quickly learned that Jessica was born to be a bride... and I think you'll agree... meet Jessica and Andrew Malek.

With so many fun details to feature stay tuned for more on Jessica and Andrew's big day. The stellar photography is from non other than Jen Kroll Photography.
