Brandon + Jess // American Swedish Institute

Wedding, Winter

Kelsey Buehler

Joy literally oozed out of Brandon and Jess as they became Mr. and Mrs. Peterson! It was truly a delight to witness! I have known Jess since our college days and she’s such a sweet, joyful and caring girl. I can personally say that she’s definitely a good catch and will be such a lovely wife, a solid supporter and faithful encourager to Brandon!

Their wedding was remarkable to witness as the love of Jesus was so beautifully displayed throughout the entire day. From Jess and Brandon’s genuine care for one another and their guests, to the clear proclamation of the Gospel in their ceremony, to the sweet testimony of Christ’s faithfulness heard in the speeches, it was a day marked by the joy they have in Jesus!

Another extra special element was the venue where they got married. The American Swedish Institute holds a sweet spot in their hearts as it is where they had their very first date! Their dating relationship began there so it was the perfect venue to have their wedding… not to mention the added benefit that it’s completely gorgeous!

What a wonderful celebration to have the honor of capturing! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their wonderful, winter wedding day at the American Swedish Institute!
