Shades of Blue Ironspire Complex Wedding

Jun 12, 2024

Jillian and Josh’s shades of blue Ironspire Complex wedding was nothing short of magical. The day was filled with laughter, tears, and unforgettable moments.

It was a day to remember for everyone there.

Jillian was tucked around a corner with the biggest smile on her face. She was anxiously waiting for the moment she got to surprise her dad with a first look of her dress. As he started to make his way down the walkway, Jillian turned the corner to come into view. Tears welled up in his eyes almost immediately. His little girl was stunning, and he was so happy for her. Jillian, too, became emotional seeing her dad and quickly walked (almost ran) to him for a big embrace.

The bond they share is unbreakable!

That wasn’t the last time her dad broke down throughout the day. From the ceremony to the father-daughter dance, his eyes were filled with tears for the best reasons. Watching her radiate and marry the man of her dreams is one of the best days, but knowing he was giving her away was also bittersweet.

Along with the tear-jerker moments, Jillian and Josh’s shades of blue Ironspire Complex wedding was also filled with endless joy!

The day started with Jillian and her bridesmaids enjoying some fun times at an Airbnb, complete with mimosas. The laughter and joy set a perfect tone for the day. Jillian even got to play princess for her little cousins. She just happened to be out on the balcony in her dress as they walked by below. Making their day as she waved to them!

A special moment they will never forget.

Jillian and Josh’s first look was sweet and filled with anticipation, though they held back their tears initially. It was during their private vows that the emotions overflowed. Both of them broke down a little, moved by the heartfelt promises they were making to each other.

Ready to officially say I do and let the celebration begin!

The dance floor was the highlight of the reception with glow sticks, sunglasses, and a group of party people who never let the energy die down. Jillian was on the dance floor the entire time leading the fun.

One of the cutest moments was a surprised choreographed dance by the women guests to ABBA’s “Dancing Queen.” Jillian’s face was in shock as they began. Her mom, aunts, cousins, friends, and new in-laws all participated. Creating a joyful, girlhood moment that Jillian will cherish forever.

This day had it all: special touches, laughter, tears, and dancing!

Overall, Jillian and Josh’s shades of blue Ironspire Complex wedding was a true celebration of love. They are a wonderful couple, great to work with and always up for anything. From the emotional father-daughter first look to the lively dance floor, every moment was filled with love and joy. It was a day to remember, and the HMP Team feels so lucky to have been a part of it. Here’s to Jillian and Josh and all the amazing adventures ahead of them!
