Congratulations Vanessa & Jon.
On Sunday, March 25th, I had the honor of attending Nessa (of Nessasary Makeup) and her now husband, Jon's wedding. It was such a beautiful ceremony. Just seeing her walk down the aisle in her gorgeous dress towards her then fiance as he anxiously waited for her.
Just as any ceremony you witness, you can feel the love and emotions in their words as they spoke their vows. Seeing Jon tear up and hearing him choke as he spoke words of promises to forever be by her side made you want to tear up right alongside him. We've seen their relationship grow as Nessa spoke about him on her blog. But to witness it in person is on a whole other level.
I've had the opportunity to hang out with Nessa on a few occasions in the past and it was always nothing but good times with her. She even took the time to come out to my baby shower for baby E back in 2009.
I headed out with Tia (Christiana) at about 2:30PM. Vanessa's invite says to be there at 4:30PM. The drive according to google maps told me that it would take me an hour and a half to get to Camarillo from my house. But because it was raining hard that Sunday, I wanted to leave early just in case there was traffic.
And indeed there was traffic and it rained really hard to the point where my visibility was compromised. But we made it just on time. As we were waiting for the ceremony to start, we snapped a few pics and just chit chatted.
Vanessa handmade most everything in her wedding, including the invitations, centerpieces and much much more. She is so creative! AND I bet she saved a ton of money by doing some of it on her own.
Here was my view from my seat.
And a close up. These were the best pictures I could get using my iPhone.
Look at these cute favor boxes. They were filled with Hershey Kisses candy.

Had to get a pic with Nessa. Look at her dress! SO Gorgeous!! HAHA Love how Jon pops into the pic like that!
Photobooth Fun with Tia!
And just before we had to call it a night, Photobooth Fun with Nessa!
Nessa and Jon's wedding turned out so beautifully and I want to wish the new couple many many many years of blissful marriage. I'm so glad to have been a part of their day and I am truly happy for the both of them!
