Andy & Jessica. Reno Backyard Wedding.

The adage of timing being everything is soooo true-especially in Andy & Jessica’s story. Their story began in middle school-they attended the same Birthday Party & both had a crush on the other from afar. As the years passed, they continued to run into each other from time to time either through acquaintences or being at the same place at the same time. Although they knew who the other person was, they had never had a real conversation….until one fateful February day when Jessica received a friend request from THE Andy Johnson. And of course she accepted! After a few months of messaging/flirting, Andy picked up the phone and called Jessica for the first time. They hit it off instantly & Andy asked Jessica out on a date for her Birthday. Needless to say, it was the best Birthday that she could remember & they have been inseparable ever since.

Andy proposed to Jessica by surprising her with a trip to the Ritz Carlton at Lake Tahoe. They had a fancy dinner, a ride on the gondola & headed back to their room where Andy asked Jessica to make him the happiest man alive by being his wife. She jumped up & down and made sure to say YES! Their wedding was held in Jessica’s parents back yard on a beautiful, beautiful October morning. Their family & friends gathered under the beautiful blue Nevada sky to watch Jessica & Andy exchange rings, vows & to become husband & wife. Their ceremony was sweet & included their beautiful daughter which was a sweet touch. The afternoon was spent in the warm autumn sun-listening to the best music, eating the greatest food & celebrating two people who are truly in love.

Andy & Jessica-thank you for having me photograph your amazing wedding. It is so obvious how happy you guys make each other-and it’s even more obvious that you will both live a very happy, exciting life with each other! Wishing you soooooo much happiness & joy in your journey ahead, XOXO, marielle.
