"I have been planning this day for years," her mother said.
Jessica was glowing as she rounded the corner of the aisle; all smiles as her family and friends greeted her with joy and delight. As she approached Dane, she kissed her father twice, and joined arms with the man that was about to become her husband. Dane's aunt and Godmother spoke as the ceremony began. She read Psalm 62:5-8 and Matthew 7:7-8, and then read what she wished for their marriage: "Never stop laughing, praise one another, listen, share in each other's success, be proud of one another, be honest, and live and love with passion every day." As they exchanged vows, the sun started to brilliantly shine for the first time all day. Dane slipped a ring on Jessica's finger, a ring that was replicated from Jessica's grandmother's ring, and she placed a ring on his.
On October 28th, 2017, a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and a Kansas City Chiefs fan tied the knot.
Jessica and Dane were surrounded by many friends and family to celebrate their marriage at The Columbia Country Club in Mid-Missouri. Jessica wore a stunning gown from Breeze Bridal Boutique and beautiful fresh flowers were evident throughout the entire day from Kent's Floral Gallery. Jessica's family is from Pittsburgh, and it is tradition in her family that a cookie bar be at each wedding. Several tables were lined with delicious homemade treats and cookies, and guests even had bags to take a few home! Everyone was all smiles as they danced the evening away, celebrating a perfect day. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Thompson!
