Sara + Jason are Married!

My blog has been buzzing lately with all things wedding!! (And oh how I LOVE it.) I’ve had the honor of photographing and meeting some of the sweetest and most gorgeous brides and grooms. Sara & Jason were no exception.

Their wedding day arrived in almost the perfect package. Wonderful temps, a touch of wind for movement in photos and big puffy clouds to filter sunlight. Mmmmmwah! There are many parts of a wedding day that I love. But my all-time-favorite is the bride getting ready. The energy, excitement and anticipation is so much fun. These are memories that you will want to keep and hold on to for a lifetime. Surrounded by your best girlfriends and close family as you get ready to marry the man of your dreams. A big thank you to Trevor Loken of The Rendevous Photo for helping me be in two places at once. 😉

I was immediately in-love with Sara when she told me hot pink was going to be a part of her color scheme. And that dress? Swoon!!

I always love seeing how many hands it takes to secure these big beautiful dresses. What would brides do without the help of their maids?

Sara, you look stunning!

And while we were enjoying some pampering and all things girly…her handsome groom waited.

By now you know my opinion of First Looks (I’m obsessed.) Sara added her own twist and gave me a pink bandanna for Jason to wear…to ensure no peeking! I’ve started asking my couples a few questions to answer about their wedding day to add to my blog write up.

What was your favorite part on your wedding day? The first look. Our first look was magical…two butterflies joined us creating a very special moment!

I love when my couples love their First Look as much as I do.

BEST FIRST LOOK PHOTO…..EVA!!!!!!! Sara your happy expression made me teary!! p.s. those butterflies showed up right after this shot on the left. 😉

You guys are adorable. Period.

And talk about a fun wedding party. I did not have to work hard for natural smiles…they were exploding everywhere! Jay, your face here is awesome. And Sara, you are working “sexy bride” here. Big time.

Our ring bearer, Xander, showed up and brought more laughter and smiles.

And my FAVES….the photograph on the right won out as your sneak peek. I just LOVE it. But the one on the left…another top fave. (And it was almost your sneak peek!)

And then it was time to get married.

Then he kisses his bride…and they’re Mr. and Mrs.!!!

Party time! Your reception decor was beautiful!! So many details to look at. You guys nailed it!

Trevor’s idea to attempt a balancing act with the rings. I loved it.

Their cake had a bow on it that matched Sara’s dress. It’s allllllll in the details!

What is Jason’s favorite thing about Sara? Sara’s beautiful brown eyes comfort me and her words put me at ease.

What is Sara’s favorite thing about Jason? Jason is the sweetest and most loving individual I have ever met, he makes me complete!

And it wouldn’t be an MNR Photography wedding blog post without a killer black and white with a bit of gritty grain. An authentic kinda photo. 😉

I love the engagement photo you guys chose. That one was my fave!

After the reception, the couple prepared to leave for their honeymoon in the Dominican Republic at Excellence Resort. “Our favorite part was our complimentary romantic dinner at the Italian restaurant with rose petals and wine.” Sounds like perfection.

And speaking of perfection! It was a perfect ending to a perfect night!!! Congratulations you two!! It was an honor to help you remember your day for a lifetime. I wish you the best! xoxo
