This couple is beyond romantic and we are so in love with their back story. Cody and Jess met in school and lived down the same road from each other. Through school they were friends, but upon graduation, Cody enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and was sent to California. They reconnected online and began a more personal relationship. When time came for Jess wanting to go to CA to see Cody, Cody one-upped her and took leave to fly home to see her. Their Engagement occurred at the Kaaterskill Falls (same location as their E-Session). Cody, being the adventurous type, and avid climber pulled a small box from his chalk bag and got down on one knee to propose to Jess right in front of the falls. SO PERFECT!
We just loved working with Jess and Cody from their E-Session at those cool falls to their beautiful wedding day at Longfellows in Saratoga. The couple decided on a first look at the gorgeous Yaddo Gardens just down the road and were married in an outdoor ceremony behind Longfellows hotel.
Rebekah Foster (coordinator at Longfellows) and her staff did a fabulous job making sure everything was right on time and led all the guests into the couple’s beautiful reception. DJ Vinny Liotta and his crew from Cool Cat Entertainment got the party started and put on a great show for guests. They really know how to get the dance floor packed.
We had such a wonderful time with you Jess and Cody. We truly enjoyed getting to know all of your friends and family as well. You have so many people that love the both of you. We wish for you all the happiness in the world!!
