Stephanie Messick Photography | Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Wedding

The moment I met these two at their Homestead engagement session in Hot Springs, I knew that they were destined to be with each other. The way that Jacob pulled Felicia in for kisses on her forehead or even a simple hug, those little genuine moments were 100% sincere. It was as if they never wanted to take any second spent together for granted … I feel like I’m writing a Nicolas Sparks book. 😉 Haha!

Their wedding day came and it was as much of a fairytale as I imagined! They invited their closest family and friends to the beautiful Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast for an intimate ceremony and reception. I have so many favorite moments throughout the day, but I kept reminding myself how honored I was to be there documenting their love story. I honestly teared up at so many points throughout the day because Jacob and Felicia have really touched my heart. Their first look … I have no words. It was one of the sweetest moments I have ever witnessed. Finally, they are now husband and wife! CONGRATS Jacob and Felicia!!!!

Thank you Jacob and Felicia for sharing your love with me. I cannot tell you how much I adore you two together and your sweet families! Enjoy some of my favorites and I hope you are enjoying Jamaica!!! xoxo
