Wedding Wednesday: The Carmen Wedding

Jessica and Zachary Carmen | July 14, 2012 | Photography by Lori Hendrick Photography

Jessica Thurston and Zachary Carmen met at the Salem YMCA. One day they finally got the nerves to strike up a conversation with the other and they have been inseparable ever since. The wedding was sparked by a New Year's Eve proposal, while the couple was at Zachary's home in California. The couple wanted to have a modern wedding with a little edge. Bridesmaids wore charcoal grey dresses and Jessica's gown featured a black netted bow around the waist.
