Whimsical Garden Wedding at Lac La Belle
Wedding Date: May 7, 2021
Bowling and one-dollar drinks were the start to Jessica Kriesel and Josh Koltermann’s love story. Jessica asked Josh to buy her a drink; he declined, and she thought, “Challenge accepted!” Four years of dating later, Josh clandestinely bought a ring—which Jessica’s parents discovered when they went to clean the couple’s house that flooded while they were working at the Bassmaster Classic. Josh swore them to secrecy, and everyone kept mum until April 2019, when the two were on Jessica’s dream European vacation. Josh hired a photographer and videographer to catch his proposal in front of the Eiffel Tower, and of course, she said “Yes!” Jessica’s whimsical garden vision came to life at Lac La Belle, with an outdoor ceremony on the golf course, showcasing Josh’s love for the sport. The indoor reception featured a one-of-a-kind hanging floral installation filled with blush roses, greenery and wisteria above the table. A favorite moment was when their officiant paused the ceremony, told them to face the crowd and said, “This is the one moment in your lives where you will see this group of people all together at once, supporting your love.”
