Jesika and John
When physician recruiter Jesika Jonalagada, and Human Resource Information System Manager John Roach met each other for the first time in Dallas, Texas, they felt an instant recognizable chemistry and it gradually became apparent that they were destined to be together.When Jesika and John met at Jesika’s first day at work, even their colleagues could see the sparks flying. Soon, running into each other developed into a relationship and marriage came as a natural next step. Jesika always dreamed of a romantic proposal so John formally popped the question after a visit to his parents house and a lovely bird sanctuary. John got down on one knee and Jesika immediately said yes. The happy couple celebrated at the Republic of Texas Steakhouse. Jesika and John chose to have their traditional church wedding at the Dallas Texas Royal Lane Baptist Church and their reception at the Omni Las Colinas Hotel. The couple even designed their own wedding website and made sure that their wedding was completely stress-free. Jesika and John wanted to stick to their traditional spiritual values and follow local guidelines for hosting a wedding during the pandemic. The couple decided to host the festivities in Dallas as that was where John grew up and the two dated. John’s parents also live nearby making the locale convenient. The couple chose a traditional church wedding complete with white accents right from the church’s white steeple to the pews strewn with white tulle and beautiful floral wreaths. A church organist played “Here Comes the Bride” and the “Wedding March.” COVID restrictions meant that there was a restriction on the number of guests, but this did not deter the couple from celebrating every moment. The immediate family arrived at the wedding avenue in a gorgeous white Rolls Royce. The reception was held in a gorgeous ballroom decorated with a three-paneled backdrop adorned with floral accents and beautiful drapery. The white wedding theme continued and the stage and dance floor were sparkling white. Gorgeous floating candles and romantic centerpieces added to the ethereal aura. There was an abundance of white hydrangeas, and the couple’s initials were monogrammed with gold on menu cards and place mats. There was a gorgeous sweetheart table and matching King and Queen chairs for the happy couple. While the couple was dancing, the DJ choreographed some stunning “dancing on the cloud” moments complete with confetti and lights! As Jessika and John danced to “A Whole New World” and “Hum Tum,” they embraced the most beautiful bond of marriage forever. Think hard about what you really want for your wedding, prioritize and then set a budget before shopping! Avoid overspending and always do a lot of research.
