Jessica and Vinoth

Jessica & Vinoth

Imagine saying “yes” to your soulmate mid-air on a hot air balloon. Top-of-the-world, right! Vinoth Kumar Thirunavukkarasu, a systems engineer and Jessica Jackson, a genetic counselor, did just that in Treasure Island, Florida.

Vinoth from Neyveli, Tamil Nadu, moved to Jacksonville for a new job in 2008. Jessica from Indiana also settled in the city for her first job in 2014. The duo met through a social volleyball group and hit it off immediately.

Wedding and Reception Ceremony of Jessica and VinothThe couple’s friends saw the chemistry between the two and set them up. Vinoth was hesitant, but they arranged a group outing and left him alone with Jessica. He finally found the courage to ask Jessica for their first official date – it was a night on the beach watching the full moon, followed by dinner.

The couple later got engaged on a hot air balloon with seven tourists and celebrated with mimosas. Jessica was scared lest she drop the diamond ring!

Vinoth and Jessica had a traditional wedding in Tamil Nadu in May 2017. “It was my first trip to India and first time meeting his family. It was an amazing experience to be part of a traditional Indian wedding,” said Jessica.

The couple tied the knot in a Christian wedding ceremony in Saint Augustine, Florida, on September 22, 2017. The venue for the wedding and reception was The White Room Rooftop and Loft. They chose St. Augustine as it is a place of historical interest. For their 100 wedding guests, it became a vacation.

Vinoth and Jessica hired Coastal Coordinating for the wedding day and highly recommend them. Katy made things stress free for them, made take-home meals and even ensured the wedding gifts were sent to their room.

The color theme for the wedding was cobalt blue and coral with flowers. The ceremony was organized on the rooftop facing St. Johns River in the evening.

The reception was held inside with candle lights on the tables. In a blend of Indian and American cultures, Jessica wore a white gown, while the bridesmaids also wore gowns with Indian jewelry.

Jessica advises couples to be sure that their big day reflects them and their love.
