Our story
Where There's a Will, There's a Way

New Orleans. 2018. Dance floor. Cousin's Wedding. Will. Jess. Love.
It was the wedding of Darci, Jess’s cousin, and Eric, Will’s best friend. Jess sees a guy who catches her eye. It was a little more complicated though as Will was dancing with another woman. But not for long. Jess wedged her body between the two, asking coyly, “Can I cut in?”  Will, dumbfounded by the unabashed approach, quickly fell prey to Jess’s charm, and it was love from there.

The Texas Cowboy and Boston Yank gave long distance romance a chance with Will starting up his business in Corpus Christi, and Jess living in San Francisco. Undaunted by the miles between them, our couple enjoyed sun-soaked weekends in Carmel, meandering along the shores of Mendocino, deep sea fishing in Islamorada, and floating down the Guadalupe river in Gruene.  Alas, the distance got the best of the dance floor lovers and they sadly parted ways.

Key West. 2022. Dance floor. Cousin's Wedding. Will. Jess. Love.

Cousin Darci, having picked up on love’s plans, made her move, conveying that every time she saw Will he’d ask about Jess, declaring that she was his soulmate and that losing her was the biggest mistake of his life.  Jess, who “loves love” as her sister says, admitted Will was constantly in her thoughts over the years, and she missed the way he made her laugh. Encouraged by Darci’s claims, they FaceTimed. Seeing Will's smile again melted Jess's heart, and in a blink they were happily back together.

Fast forward to May and off to London they went. Will upon arriving immediately, adamantly, and suspiciously declared that he wanted to go to Parliament Hill (he’d secretly talked to Jess’s best friend, Jenny, about Jess's favorite London spots!). After napping and cuddling in the rare London sun, Jess soon found Will on one knee. Confused, she stared blankly at him, until finally realizing what was happening. And the rest is history! They love the new life they’ve begun to build in Houston and are thrilled to share a slice of it with you, their dear family and friends, on their wedding day!
