Jessica and David first met in 1999. But after only one date, the two parted ways and didn't see each other again until a chance encounter five years later. This time, David didn't let Jessica get away so easily. Though it took many e-mails, phone calls and bribes before Jessica agreed to go on a second "first" date with David, by the end of the night the two knew they were meant to be together. Thirteen months later, they were engaged.

The couple searched throughout several states to find the perfect venue for their romantic mansion wedding before finally settling on The Bourne Mansion. Originally built in the 1900's, the 175-acre estate features many different rooms that guests were able to travel through during the evening before making their way to the exquisite ballroom, which boasted 30-foot ceilings. Gold accents and lush red petals perfectly embellished the mansion's regal decor, giving the whole celebration a simple, yet elegant feel.

Deep reds and purples complement the gilded background at this fall fete
