Jessica & Nathaniel were married at their local church in Mechanicsville, Maryland, where Nathaniel’s father leads the flock. The ceremony was nothing short of a truly heartfelt exchange of honest commitments and joyful tears. The reception, taking place at the Waldorf Jaycee Community Center in Waldorf, Maryland, was no exception—a string of toasts and prayers from friends and family went a long way to illustrating how tightly-knit and loving this community is.

DJ-ing the event was DJ Jon DePompa (twitter), who did a great job MC-ing the event and is worth looking into for your next event.
