This day was incredibly unique, never in our time have we saw anyone painting before a wedding. What a interesting way to smooth out the jitters and just relax. Jessica and Tom met for a first moment in the courtyard of a nearby downtown hotel, and headed to the Paxton for photos on the roof. The ceremony taking place at Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church, so beautiful! Before the reception, the Paxton’s lobby packed for a cocktail hour. The reception at The Paxton ballroom was unbeatable, deep blues throughout the room cooling the warm tones of the ballroom walls.
