Real Wedding: Meet Bride & Groom-to-be Jessica and Jordon
This December, beautiful Florida native Jessica and her fiance, South Carolina native Jordon, will tie the knot at one of their favorite places on the planet. Meet Breakers’ bride and groom-to-be Jessica and Jordon.
For Jessica and Jordon, choosing The Breakers’ for their big day was not a difficult task. In fact, Jessica’s parents and both her mother’s brother and sister all hosted their wedding receptions at The Breakers!
Jessica and Jordan sat down and shared some of their memories, along with their gorgeous engagement photos taken by Chris Joriann Fine Art Photography at Jessica’s parents’ Florida farm at Kissimmee Oaks Ranch.
Q: What made you and Jordon choose The Breakers for your special day? Did you always dream of being married at The Breakers?
A: As a little girl, I loved looking through my parents’ wedding album and I ALWAYS dreamt of having a big wedding at The Breakers! Of course, Jordon and I tried to be open-minded to all possibilities, but we will both admit our hearts were truly set on The Breakers the first time we visited. It just seemed like no other place could compare to the beauty and grandeur we saw and felt at The Breakers. We both were awestruck and kept saying, “We have to make our wedding happen here.”
Q: Your engagement photos have an amazing vintage feel, explain your vision for your wedding.
A: Truthfully, I’ve always loved classic elegance. Jordon and I both agreed we wanted a big traditional wedding and when we started thinking about decor, a formal vintage feel just seemed perfect for us.
Q: How did Jordon propose?
A: Jordon proposed on Dec. 18 on a boat on the ocean at sunrise. I just thought we were going fishing and was completely surprised when he got down on one knee (while the boat was rocking) and pulled out a ring box. As he was telling my why he wanted me to be his wife and that he loved me, I kept telling myself not to forget to say “yes!” Of course, through the tears I said “yes” and we toasted our engagement and a lifetime of love over mimosas on the front of the boat.
Q: We’re more than six months out from the big day, what is your excitement level?
A: We can’t believe how quickly the time has already passed. We want time to keep flying and can’t wait to officially be husband and wife!
Q: What part of the wedding planning process are you enjoying the most?
A: Both of us really enjoyed planning possible menus and are so excited for our food tasting in August! Of course, being the girly bride, my favorite part so far was finding my dress!
Q: What are you looking forward to most on your wedding day?
A: Most of all, we are looking forward to celebrating this incredibly special time with our family and friends. I think we are also so excited about that first feeling we will get seeing each other in the church right before we say our vows.
Congratulations Jessica & Jordon! Stay tuned fro more as we follow their love story!
