Real Weddings: Jessica & Jordan Michael's Rustic Jewish Wedding III

Part III from Jessica and Jordan Michael's stunning wedding.

From Jessica, the gorgeous bride:

Our day was so beautiful. I felt like I woke up from a dream the day of my wedding. As I stood outside our villa and walked down the grass to the edge where the olive trees where, I gasped at how stunning the rolling hills full of vineyards glistened in the morning sun. And, I couldn’t believe that in a matter of hours, I would be looking at this breathtaking view standing next to my husband-to-be and uniting our love in front of our family in Italy,a long way from our California home land, but we made it! And, our family joined us in our unconventional ideas of a perfect wedding. And with the help of Chiara, our wedding planner, the entire wedding process was stress free for me.

I remember at one point after the ceremony Jordan and I looked at each other with complete awe that this just happened. That every moment of the day was more than we could have imagined, it truly was perfect! To see my whole family laughing, smiling and dancing together, and taking in the beautiful scenery and setting, it truly felt like we were in a  movie.

I know, how lucky am I! Not many brides can say they spent the day of the wedding relaxing  and sipping a local Tuscan rosé, admiring the florists work on our Chuppah, and the way the bright sunflowers and orange roses complimented perfectly the rustic look we wanted. And, when my mom helped me put on my dress that she made for me, and I slipped on my blue shoes that so many had questioned, from the ceremony, to the true Italian family style seating at dinner which leant itself to an evening of laughter and smiles as we marveled over the delicious food, and finishing the evening with a great band that kept us dancing all night under the stars, our wedding was an amazing experience neither I nor my family will ever forget. Everything was perfect!
