Jessica and Eric’s Ocean Edge Resort Wedding, Brewster MA

June 4, 2015

By Mariah Ashley

Jessie and Eric’s Ocean Edge Resort Wedding was epically pretty, much like the bride herself. Eric certainly was not immune to her magnetic charms. As the story goes, Eric and Jessie met on Jessie’s first day of freshman year at UMASS Amherst. Her dad was helping her move in and Eric, an upperclassman,  spotted the lovely freshman. In true chivalrous form Eric offered to help move her in…. to his life! LOL.

Fast forward a few fun years of dating and Eric proposed on a beloved family beach in Cape Cod, hiding himself in the dunes and leaving a seashell inscribed with the words Will You Marry Me in the sand for Jessie to find.

Jessie told us, and I quote… “I love veil volume!” She’s a girl after our own hearts, for Trish and me there is only one rule concerning veils and that’s … the bigger the better! Here’s Jessie’s mom and her sister Grace helping her into her gown.

I joked with Jessie about what a lucky girl she is, she has a handsome husband to be, a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy on the way, amazing friends, and a honeymoon to Antigua. Maybe it’s just karma in action as she spends most of her time as a nurse caring for others. Her father said during his toast, “Jessie is such a sweet, kind person she made it her profession.”

I always love the bit of time that the bride and her father have alone before the big walk down the aisle.

Jessie’s dad looks a little pained here, but I know he is happy about having Eric as a son in law. He said that Eric fit into their family immediately, even though it was all girls in kitties. Finally he had a buddy for grilling and boating!

It had been overcast all day, but during the ceremony the sun came out and the light was perfection for our portraits.

Holy Blooming Beach Trees!

Have you ever seen anything like this? I haven’t and I grew up on Cape Cod! Honestly, the pathway down to the beach looked like a movie set, it was so beautiful … so full of blossoms that it was impossible to take in and fully appreciate. Trish and I were so excited, we just started snapping like mad.

The day of their engagement session, Jessie and Eric took me to a beach that had a tree covered in sea shells, I didn’t think in a million years that experience could be beaten, until there was this…

These two are such love birds. Eric has killer romance moves, he needs no coaching!

Don’t you want your man to kiss your forehead like this? Of course you do!

Jessie’s sister Grace said that Jessie and Eric’s relationship was the example for her of what head over heels in love looks like. That’s a good example to have and we are certain the adorable Grace will find it to!

We would have liked to stay on the beach all night but there was a party waiting for us. However, we couldn’t resist a few more photos of Jessie on the way back. It does not get dreamier than this.

After all that snapping it was time for the party.

As we all know it is not easy to look as fit as Jessie does. There’s a lot of hours spent at the gym and a lot of hours NOT eating cake. Jessie was REALLY excited about finally having cake! I believe it was cheesecake and red velvet… but don’t quote me on that.

As usual the day went by way too fast but I think Jessie and Eric really enjoyed every moment of their day. Besides, they had a honeymoon in Antigua to get to and a furry baby waiting for them when they got back… just the start of a fabulous future together. It all started in a dorm room in Amherst MA, but the skies the limit for where their life together will take them! Lots of love Jessie and Eric! xoxo The Snap Girls.
