“I’m so excited!”
“This is awesome!”
If there are two sentences that sum up Jenny and Johnny’s day perfectly, those would be it. From the minute I arrived in the morning, Jenny could not stop telling me just how thrilled she was to be marrying Johnny. All through her hair and make up appointment, a smile never left her face. Well, it never left her face all day, really. And whenever anyone asked her how she was doing, she would simply say, “I’m so excited!!”
Johnny’s phrase, on the other hand, was “This is awesome!” Although sometimes he added a “so awesome” in there. Ya know, for variation ;) All during the First Look, he kept making note of how amazing it was that the wedding day had actually arrived. The day that they had spent so much time planning for, working toward, and looking forward to, had finally come. Exciting and awesome, indeed :)
Enjoy a few (or a lot) of my favorites from their day! (And I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to the wonderful Amy Lashelle, who assisted me during the wedding. Thanks Amy!)
After hair and make up at The Golden Door, we headed back to the hotel for Jenny to put on her lovely Augusta Jones gown.
Love this :)
Once the dress was on, we headed over to the White Barn to meet Johnny!
Not be a broken record, but…. I LOVE First Looks! So much. And I’m very glad these two decided to do it :)
They were so sweet :)
And did I mention excited? Yes, super excited, too!
SUCH a beautiful couple, no?
They just couldn’t stop smiling at each other.
After the First Look we made our way to the beautiful St. Mary’s for the ceremony.
If you’ve ever wondered whether or not doing a First Look takes away from the groom seeing his bride walk down the aisle, I think this face will answer your question ;)
You could literally feel the joy radiating from them as they walked back down the aisle :)
We hurried to snap the family pictures after the ceremony, and then it absolutely started POURING rain. As you can see, though, it didn’t put any damper on their spirits! (And I have to add in a HUGE thank you to Amy here, because she held an umbrella for me so I could finish up the last few family shots during the downpour!)
Newpark Hotel provided a wonderful atmosphere for the wedding!
Rather than having a guest book, they had a custom snowboard made and had all their guests sign it. How great is that?!
Instead of table numbers, all of the tables were labeled with places where the bride and groom had been, and a memory to go with it!
After the first dance, a party broke loose! Thanks to the talented Joe Muscolino Band for bringing down the house!
Johnny and Jenny let me sneak them away for a few minutes to catch the beautiful light, just as the sun was setting in front of the hotel. I feel so fortunate to have clients who care about their pictures and allow me to do this :)
I’ll finish up with this shot of the glowing couple! (Pun might have been intended.)
Congratulations again you two!! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding! The day was a beautiful testament of your love, I know your life together will be just as beautiful :) Xo
