Jessenia and Aaron’s modern minimalist wedding at Nasher Sculpture Center is full of soft reds and moody details. The couple met in 2013 on Tinder. Jessenia said she never thought she’d join a dating app in her wildest dreams, let alone find THE one on an app. However, she is forever grateful she joined because she met the love of her life. After Jessenia and Aaron’s first date, they knew they had found the one. The two became inseparable, but Aaron was set to leave for Dubai for three months to play professional golf overseas. Aaron told Jessenia to come with him. At first, Jessenia thought it was a crazy idea. Aaron told her that she hated her jobs anyway and could figure everything out once they got home. As a result, Jessenia took a leap of faith and quit her job to be with Aaron. Jessenia said, “It was the most magical trip of my life. We got back, moved in together, and the rest is history! The craziest, scariest decision I ever made turned out to be the best one.” On February 23, 2019, the stars all aligned when Aaron got down on one knee and proposed to Jessenia. Of course, Jessenia said “YES” to the love of her life, and the two began planning their dream wedding.
Everything about Jessenia and Aaron’s wedding feels very modern, moody, and oh so romantic. We first begin with Jessenia’s timeless gown from Lulu’s Bridal. This gown encompasses what it means to be an elegant and modern bride with clean lines and simple detailing. We are absolutely in love with the entire bridal look. After Jessenia slipped into her gown, she and Aaron united for their first look. Jessenia describes the moment as “we saw each other and said a few private words for just us two. I immediately felt a sense of calm and peace, and I could finally relax and breathe.” Laning Photography photographed the intimate first look moment that we know Jessenia and Aaron will cherish for the rest of their lives. Finally, after the two became one, Jessenia and Aaron celebrated their Mexican American culture with a mariachi band during cocktail hour. After thinking their plans for an outdoor reception were over, the weather finally cooperated for the couple. At last, the rain stopped, and guests got to enjoy a beautiful dinner reception on the terrace with romantic decor and rentals from Posh Couture Rentals. We are so excited to share all of Jessenia and Aaron’s wedding details, so keep scrolling!
