We finished out the month of July with Jonathan & Jennah’s wedding day. Jennah is the sister to one of our previous J&M Grooms, TJ (see TJ & Holley’s wedding day here!). It was so much fun to be back with the Goedeke family for another wedding!
When it came time to plan Jennah’s wedding, she & her mom thought it would be wonderful to have a Christmas wedding. You may remember Jennah’s love for Christmas from her & Jonathan’s Christmas lights and ornament engagement photo session we did back in December! But the timeline for planning a December wedding didn’t work out with Jennah’s schedule as a school teacher. So they came up with the next best thing, a wedding theme of Christmas in July!
Jonathan & Jennah chose Tucker Hall as the perfect venue for their wedding, and transformed it into a navy, red and gold celebration of Christmas. The tables were decorated with red, blue and gold ornaments. Instead of a guestbook, Jonathan & Jennah asked guests to sign ornaments to hang on their Christmas tree for their first Christmas as Mr. & Mrs. And everyone left the evening with their own keepsake ornament to commemorate Jonathan & Jennah’s big day.
The Christmas in July theme wasn’t the only memorable thing from Jonathan & Jennah’s wedding. There were so many memorable little moments throughout the day, the type of moments you want to hold on to forever.
There was the excitement of all Jennah’s bridesmaids as they waited to turn around and see her in her dress for the first time. And the different reactions her brothers and father had to her were priceless too.
There were the sweet moments Jonathan had with his mom right before the ceremony and during their mother and son dance. And watching Jennah dance with her dad, and then brothers showed how close of a bond they all have.
There were all the moments of Jonathan looking at Jennah with such love in his eyes throughout the ceremony. And hearing him share his own personal vows to her after they shared their traditional wedding vows touched everyone’s hearts.
And as the sun set and the celebration came to an end, Jonathan & Jennah left their wedding surrounded by their loved ones, running through a sparkler exit to start their new life together.
Dear Jonathan & Jennah,
We were so honored to a be a part of your wedding day. We hope these wedding photos help you remember exactly how you felt on this special day every time you look at them. May you have many happy years of slow dancing together ahead of you.
