Erik and Jess meet at school while Erik was over in the UK for a few years from his native America. It’s so sweet that Erik said there and then that Jess was the girl he was going to marry. It is like something you hear and see in a romantic film. Could this romance be true? The proof is in Erik and Jess.
Fast forward 15 years and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when, after overcoming many a hurdle, that dream finally became a reality. They had a beautiful Rustic European wedding at Foxhole Farm and actually handmade the decor themselves. Jess and Erik described their wedding day as perfection and the best day ever, which is reflected in the photography.
The Bride Jess:
Between the Thunderbird car, a service in our childhoods’ school church, a Yurt in my family’s garden and music and dancing in a barn, the day pulled itself together remarkably. We opted for a Rustic, European Wedding, with an American twist (to reflect the English Bride and American Groom) and we managed to achieve it through Bristolian forces, mostly via family and friends. Hooey’s Yurt and John Hope Photography were the only elements of the day that came outside Bristol, and they were pivotal to making the day so memorable and unique. My outfit, with all my wonderful accessories, was the icing on the wedding cake and I felt so proud to be marrying my groom, all groomed up. Best day ever.
The Groom Erik:
In a word, perfect. It was exactly as I had imagined it even after all the planning. I think it was in huge part due to my bride and I, and to all of our friends and family. And I would very highly recommend the smaller, more intimate affair because it makes the day that much more memorable.
