White and Champagne BellaCosa Lakeside Wedding | Jessica and Charlie | Lake Wales, Florida

Some call it destiny.

Others call it fate.

But I think we can all agree that when two people are meant to be together they find their way back to each other no matter what.

This was exactly the case for Jessica and Charlie.

They actually knew each other since Kindergarten, but they didn’t start dating until 8th grade. And once they went to college, they decided to separate so they could have a chance at finding out who they were without one another. Well, they ended up coming back to each other again during their Junior year of college and the rest was history!

Charlie proposed to Jessica at the private school they both went to and first started dating at! And now they’re officially married!!

Jessica and Charlie’s wedding day couldn’t have been more beautiful and was filled with so much love and support from their friends and family.

Their friends and family were thrilled to finally see them get married. And with so many close friends (Charlie’s high school basketball coach even spoke!) we just know their future is going to be so warm and bright.

There were so many special details throughout their wedding day. One of our favorite details of the day was that Jessica’s parents own a jewelry company and actually made Jessica’s engagement ring! We loved adding that special touch in their detail images.

Another favorite detail was how they chose their colors based off of Charlie’s last name – White!

After 15 years of dating, Jessica and Charlie truly deserved the most beautiful wedding day – and that it was!

Jessica and Charlie,

We are SO happy for you two!! We loved celebrating with you and capturing it all! It was such a pleasure getting to know your friends and family, and be a little part of your beautiful love story. We can’t wait to share the rest of your images soon! Until then, we hope you have a blast in Barbados!
