Lilliana and Jesse first met in grade school but didn’t begin dating until college. Jesse proposed on Christmas Eve! They were married at The First United Methodist Church in Irwin with a reception following at Antonelli Event Center.

Lilliana, her mom, matron of honor (former KWP bride Nikki) and bridesmaids got ready at Lilliana’s home while Jesse got ready with the men at his brother’s home.

Lilliana did a casual first look with her dad and provided both of her parents gifts on her wedding day.

Before their first look, the couple read cards from one another. After the first look, we stopped on the way to the church for some quick bridal party and bride and groom portraits. The weather cleared up just in time for these pictures!

Once church was over, we took just a few more minutes with the couple for pictures outside in front of the popular red door of the church. Following that last set of photos, we all headed over to Antonelli’s for the reception. The couple did something unique in that they passed out the buffet plates to their guests in lieu of a receiving line. This is a great option for couples who want to greet every guest at the reception but don’t have the time to do table visits or a receiving line at church. After dinner, the dance floor was packed all night! It was great to observe all the action down below from the balcony at Antonelli’s. I even saw ring bearer Colton stripping down to his diaper and dancing. A fun night was had by all!

Note to the couple:
