Factory 12 Loft | Columbus, IN Wedding | Jess & Jacob

admin

At some weddings, it just feels like the days flies by because we are having such a fun time. Jessica and Jacob's wedding was definitely one of those weddings. The wedding party had such a fun time celebrating with Jessica & Jacob. During down time, the groomsmen serenaded everyone with A Capella renditions of pop songs. They were all full of energy and kept it up until the very end of the beautiful day. Jessica looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress. Jacob covered his dropped jaw when he saw her for the first time. It was such a sweet moment.

I loved their reception location, The Factory 12 Loft. Very rustic feel, but their beautiful centerpieces brought life and color to the room. When I went to check the time to see how close we were to the send off, I was in shock that we only had 15 more minutes! It was an easy day because we were having so much fun!

Jess's maid of honor, Molly, led a bible study with Jess. At one of their first studies they talked about how Jesus is the good shepherd. It really stuck with them, so on the following April Fool's Day, Molly posted sheep all around Jessica's dorm room. Jess thought it was funny. It became a big inside joke within their relationship and on the wedding day, a few sheep were in attendance.
