Wynn & Jessica: January 1, 2016- Champaign, IL

Wynn and Jessica are some pretty amazing people.  I’m truly honored I got to be a part of their special day!

I met Jess through a mutual friend, Kendra.  Kendra is a professional photographer who is friends with Jess through softball.  Kendra was really working her magic to get Jess and I to connect- and I’m so, so happy she did!  It was definitely a perfect match:)

Jess and Wynn met at the University of Illinois. In the locker room to be exact.  Or as they said ‘it was love at first rep.”  heehee:)  Jess was playing softball for the U of I- on scholarship here from Florida.  Wynn was the new assistant Wrestling coach at Illinois.  What has developed is a mutual love and respect that is refreshing to see among couples:)  Even though Wynn has biceps bigger than small countries and is currently in Kiev wrestling his way through the Olympic Trials (for real)- he cried like a baby when his bride to be walked down the aisle.  Their ceremony was extremely honoring to God- which is very obviously the center of their relationship!

I am SO excited I was able to share this day with Jess, Wynn, their amazing families, and their friends!  It was an incredible day and night and I’m so thankful I got to be there:)

Now GO WYNN:)  USA, USA, USA:)

Love, Kara
