I met Jenna at her cousin Lauren's wedding two years ago. At the time I had no idea that she and Matt would choose me to photograph their wedding.
From our first meeting I knew that it was going to be a lot of fun photographing and getting to know them. At their engagement session, that was proven 100% true! It has been an absolute pleasure working with them over the last year, and I have no doubt you'll be able to see it on their faces in the following photos.
I started the day with Jenna at her parents' house where we got her into her dress and on her way to the venue. All of her bridesmaids, her mom, dad and Gram were there. (It was an extra special treat to see Gram again! She was a hoot at Lauren's wedding, so I was excited to spend the day with her again, too!)
There were also some really cool details incorporated into the wedding. Jenna had her grandfather's US Mail pin on her bouquet, and Matt had his grandfather's cuff links that they had only recently discovered.
The ceremony was beautiful! They had their niece and nephews as the flower girl and ring bearers (not to be confused with the ring bear) and they came down the aisle in a wagon. It was precious!
Jenna and Matt's faces during the ceremony were absolutely priceless. There was so much emotion and so many smiles!
Their wedding party was awesome! I had worked with all the same girls at Lauren's wedding so they were all well-seasoned at the bridesmaids role. They were all easy to work with and absolutely added to the fun.
These were a few of my favorite pictures of Jenna & Matt together. Not only do they keep each other laughing, they definitely had me laughing as well!
The fun continued into the reception with lots of dancing and laughter. One of my favorite moments was seeing Jenna tell her parents good-bye. The look on her face says it all. It's the face of a daughter who has just had the most perfect wedding. Jenna's dad was on top of everything making sure that nothing went wrong. He worked so hard to give her a dream wedding and it absolutely was. I can honestly say I don't think there was a single minute that they weren't having fun.
The night ended with a last dance and an exit to a beautiful Rolls Royce.
Congratulations Jenna & Matt and I wish you many years of laughter!
