Jessica and Stephen

Jess and Stephen first met at Stephen's older twin brother's birthday party, but it wasn't love at first sight. Jess was recovering from wisdom teeth surgery and Stephen initially thought Jess was much older than she was. Despite this rocky start, the two went on their first date a few weeks later and hit it off.

After almost two years of dating, Stephen planned a three-day scavenger hunt leading up to the proposal, which took place on the same street where they had watched the sunset on their first date. Jess was caught off guard and wasn't expecting it, but she knew Stephen was the one for her when he told her about his ideal date and it matched hers perfectly.

Jess and Stephen have chosen Bok Tower Gardens as the venue for both their engagement session and their upcoming wedding in the Fall of 2023. They're going for a modern boho theme with sage green and burnt orange as their colors. They envision a simple and intimate wedding, with the first looks, ring exchange, and bridal party as some of the key moments they want to remember.

One thing that sets their wedding apart is that they're not planning on doing the traditional father-daughter or first dance, but instead want to focus on the love and support of their friends and family. After the wedding, Jess and Stephen are planning on honeymooning in Hawaii and are excited to start their new life together as husband and wife. The stunning Bok Tower Gardens will provide the perfect backdrop for both their engagement photos and their big day, capturing the beauty and romance of their love story.
