Diana + Jesse


"Like the Keith Urban song - we fell in love in a cop car. I was working at the District Attorney's office and was at the Sheriff's office to participate in a ride along to learn more about the entire criminal process. Deputy Riner requested "the redhead", and the rest is history!"

What was your first dance song?

"Yours (Wedding Edition) by Russell Dickerson"

  • How did you feel when you saw each other for the first time on the wedding day?
    "I thought that she was beautiful, her dress was beautiful, her veil was beautiful, and I was so happy to be there in that moment and on that day marrying her!" - Jesse I was so overwhelmed with emotion - tears immediately came to my eyes as soon as he turned around. I felt like it was such an important moment in our journey, and one we will remember and look back on for the rest of our lives." -Diana
    What was the most memorable moment of the day?

    "My most memorable moment was the first dance. After all the planning and work toward our big day, being announced and going into our reception with all our friends and loved ones in the room, I felt like I could finally take a deep breath and it felt like we were alone in the room because all I could focus on was Diana."  - Jesse 

    "My favorite moment was the first look - seeing the look on his face when he saw me in my dress for the first time. I will remember the look on his face for the rest of my life. Having those few minutes with just us was such a blessing and a quiet time on a crazy and exciting day! Close second - taking pictures on the roof at sunset and twirling around in my ball gown - I felt like Cinderella, which I think every little girl dreams of!" - Diana

    If you could do it all over again, would you change anything? 

     "No!" - Jesse 

    "No, it was an amazing day and if anything went wrong I never knew about it!!" -Diana

    Do you have any advice to other brides & grooms?

    "Wear comfortable shoes!" - Jesse 

    "Relax and enjoy the day. Regardless of what happens, you will still be married at the end of the day. Don't sweat the small stuff because it doesn't matter and you won't notice or remember it! Delegate and get as much help as you can do you won't have to stress about anything, especially day of!!" - Diana
