Mauve, burgundy and white collided to create the perfect color scheme for their wedding as Jessica and Adam said “I do” on October 5, 2019. After a night filled with dancing, laughter, cake, and love, Jessica and Adam shared their love story – take a look below!

Where did you both grow up?

Adam was born and raised here in Virginia Beach. I moved around a lot since my dad was in the Navy but I have been in Virginia Beach since the late 90’s!

When and where did you meet?

We actually knew each other in high school but we were never close. After I graduated college, I moved to Florida for a job and I came back up here to visit and attended one of my friend’s birthday party. We saw each other there and have been inseparable ever since. I ended up moving back here within a week after my friend’s birthday party we attended!

When did you get engaged?

We got engaged on June 1st 2018.

Tell us your engagement story!

We were supposed to close on our new house on that day but unfortunately the bank pushed our closing date back. It was a super stressful time for me with work and buying the house, so Adam decided to surprise me with a date night. He would not tell me where we were going or what we were doing just that I had to ‘look nice.’ I am a little kid at heart when it comes to carnivals, so he took me to the summer kickoff carnival at Mount Trashmore! We rode some rides and then we went on the Ferris wheel and as the sun was setting – he asked me to spend the rest of his life with him right there overlooking the Virginia Beach skyline.

What’s the main reason you chose The Lesner Inn over other venues?

I picked the Lesner Inn for several reasons! The look of the venue was exactly what I was looking for and it includes so much stuff that I did not want to have to worry about. Also Lindsey was amazing and very accommodating for how many times my family and I wanted to view the venue before committing. She always answered all of my questions in such a timely manner as well.
