The Hotel at Kirkwood | Jessica & Kyle


Modern, classic, romantic, fun, sweet, heartfelt. Jessica and Kyle’s wedding day was all of that and more. Having known each other since sixth grade, they certainly have an undeniable connection and are visibly so in love. When asked to describe each other, the resounding foundation of their love story is their strong friendship.

One of my favorite parts of my job is that I have the privilege of getting a glimpse into people’s sweet and tender love stories. Jessica and Kyle were no exception. Their love leaped off the page to me before we ever met in person.


They both have such fun and full of life personalities, but together, they are a picture of calm romance. Pure, quiet, deep love and respect for each other.


“He is always so positive about life and grateful for everything. He makes me laugh and keeps me grounded”


Meeting Jess and Kyle the week before their wedding, it was as if we had known each other the whole time. They are both so welcoming, warm and kind. It is easy to see where they get it from, too. Their families are absolutely the most genuine, loving and hilarious group.


“We both value trust and family above all else. We just clicked.”

!7V4A7539bwJess and Kyle, thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your beautiful day. Mrs. Barrigar, thank you for being so amazing throughout the process and welcoming me into your home. I cannot express my gratitude in words, but your family and friends were such a joy to meet and celebrate with. Cheers to many more years of adventures, laughs, and love.

xoxo, Jenn
