Jessica and Damon met on a Sunday night in 2013. Jessica was traveling from New Orleans to Atlanta on a connecting flight. Damon had a seat next to Jessica and even though she had on earphones, Damon said “hello” and sparked up a conversation. They talked the entire flight. Once they landed, Jessica grabbed her “carry-on” bag and exited the plane. She had a plan though, by slowing down her pace so he would catch up to her. When Damon caught up, she acted as if she was headed to baggage claim (even though she only had a carry-on). They talked some more and Damon gave Jessica his number. Playing it cool Jessica knew her plan had worked.
They kept in contact with the occasional text message and eventually started dating more and more. With mutual feelings for each other they realize that God had allowed their paths to cross on that flight for a reason.
In Jessica’s words, “It’s been an incredible journey so far, but I know that I would not be the person I am today had I not met my amazing fiancé years ago. He covers me in prayer, he encourages me, he supports me, and most of all he loves me, flaws and all. I thank God for that connecting flight in Charlotte back in 2013… Moral of the story: Always look nice when you go to the airport, you never know who you will meet.”
After dating for years they decided to tie the knot. Jessica and Damon had a beautiful destination wedding at the New Orleans Board of Trade. The spectacular decor and planning was done by NOLA Event Planners. Their family and friends came from near and far to witness their union. A candlelit ceremony with large floral displays set the backdrop for the sunset wedding.
After the nuptials and second lining through the city, Damon and Jessica had a fun filled wedding full of great food, family, and love. We can’t thank y’all enough for allowing us to capture your union and we wish y’all a lifetime of happiness!
