"Such a relaxing and romantic weekend away in quiet Cape Cod with my number one stunner @jon_francetic - hiking the national seashore, eating our faces off while enjoying Chatham and may or may not have joined a wine co-op. @chatham.inn @firstcrushwinery #capecod," Jessica captioned a slideshow of photos earlier this week.

And on Wednesday, Jessica posted a photo of a rock she had found on the beach in the shape of a heart.

"Just today's little reminder to take a minute to appreciate the love around you. Lately, I'm going a mile a minute balancing a bunch of different projects and people," she wrote alongside the photo.

"Sometimes, it helps me to stop and center myself on what's most important to me. Love is everywhere. Love is everything. Go where the love is and forget the rest. #love #heartrock."

Meanwhile, Jonathan shared different images from their brief vacation together on his own Instagram account.

"Exploring the cape... and of course taking dramatic kissing shots, also saw a pirate ship bell!" Jonathan wrote.

Jessica and John were both bundled up in heavy coats in most of their photos, but they were smiling ear to ear and shared some sweet kisses.

Jessica also shared one image of a cozy fireplace inside their hotel.

The MAFS season married singles who lived in the Boston, MA area and began filming in late Summer 2017. Its finale aired on Lifetime in April 2018.

After Jonathan and Molly got a divorce, Jonathan and Jessica sparked up a romance.

Jonathan and Jessica went public with their relationship in August 2018, and then Jonathan proposed marriage in April at the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona.

Jonathan and Jessica live in Massachusetts but enjoy taking road trips around New England and New York.

Jessica, a licensed psychologist, is an associate professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA, which is about 45 minutes west of Boston. Originally from Ohio, she has three children from a previous marriage.

Late last month, Jonathan revealed he and Jessica have been making wedding-planning progress, as they've set a date and booked a venue.

"We have [set a date]. But we've decided not to share the date," Jonathan told Monsters & Critics in a recent interview.

Jonathan did reveal, however, he would marry Jessica at least a year from that point and their wedding will take place at Ventosa Vineyards in New York, according to the website.

Ventosa Vineyards is a beautiful winery located along the shore of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Comprised of eleven long and narrow lakes that were created by glaciers, the Finger Lakes region is famous for its many wineries.

According to its website, Ventosa Vineyards specializes in vintage dry red wines and its buildings and grounds are designed in a Tuscan style similar to what visitors would see in the Tuscany region of Italy.

The couple reportedly fell in love with the winery during a previous visit.

Around the time Jonathan gushed about setting a wedding date and booking the venue, Molly visited Dallas, TX, and had a fun-filled reunion weekend with MAFS alums Mia Bally and Amber Martorana.

While Jessica had previously appeared on Seven Year Switch, another relationship show that also aired on Lifetime and was produced by MAFS's Kinetic Content production company, Married at First Sight's sixth season was her first season as a member of the show's expert panel.

After news of their relationship emerged last year, critics accused Jonathan and Jessica of engaging in an "inappropriate" romance that reflected poorly on Jessica's professionalism and credibility because she had also served as one of their relationship counselors on Married at First Sight.

Jessica, however, has insisted she did not have an actual client/therapist or doctor/patient relationship with Jonathan at any point during production and outside companies are hired to conduct the psychological evaluations of Married at First Sight's cast members.

Jessica and her new fiance have defended their relationship repeatedly.

Jonathan and Jessica's backstory was further complicated by the fact that Married at First Sight's sixth season had also shown Jessica being unusually confrontational with Molly when she met with Jonathan and Molly after they had a blow-out fight that ultimately ended their marriage.

"I understand you don't like my honesty, but I don't like your lies," Jessica told Molly, saying she didn't believe Molly's claims that the couple's fight had been the first time she had spoken to Jonathan in the belligerent manner shown in a video Jonathan had recorded.

But Jonathan told Monsters & Critics he actually wasn't a fan of Jessica when the pair was filming Season 6 of Married at First Sight.

Jonathan insisted they had no chemistry at the time, and he even recalled himself saying at one point, "I hope I never see that woman again!"

Jonathan claimed in his interview he and Jessica only met a couple of times during the show and they only formed a bond after filming wrapped.

"Once I got to know her, I realized how great she was and fell in love. That's why I locked that down!" he said.

Jonathan and Jessica got engaged shortly after People reported Jessica was leaving her role as a relationship expert on Married at First Sight after appearing on three seasons of the Lifetime reality series, as well as its Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island spinoff.

During his interview with Monsters & Critics, Jonathan also revealed he had originally been cast for Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island, however he ended up not participating because he and Jessica had begun dating by the time the MAFS spinoff began filming.

Married at First Sight: Honeymoon Island gave participants and unmatched candidates from previous Married at First Sight seasons another shot to find love and was filmed in St. Lucia in August 2018.

The eight-episode MAFS spinoff aired on Lifetime in late 2018, however it was not renewed for a second season.

Jessica was replaced by Dr. Viviana Coles, a psychotherapist, on Season 9 of Married at First Sight, which just aired its reunion special last month and featured two of the four couples choosing to stay married.

The tenth season of Married at First Sight will premiere January 1 on Lifetime and feature couples who live in the Washington, D.C. area.

The series has also been picked up for an eleventh edition, which will also air in 2020 and likely be filmed in New Orleans, LA, based on a recent casting call.
