Winter weddings!!! I don’t get enough of them and let me tell you…I’m ready for more. Everything about this day was perfect….except I started losing my voice right before the ceremony. No biggie, it was nothing 600 throat lozenges couldn’t cure. The day was frigid, but bright. The winter sun did it’s job well. There was little complaining when I marched the wedding party outside for photos. These guys were up for anything. Enjoy my favorites from their gorgeous day.
Jenny!!! You are STUNNING!! And a big huge thank you to my Jenny Barnes for being there with me on this pretty day.
The First Look. Jenny’s haaaandsome groom, Tom wanted to surprise her with her most favorite thing ever…a bag of Wendy’s to help calm her nerves. Now really…aren’t they the cutest?
Now….it was chilly!! But these girls and guys really stuck with me while I whipped through some wedding party portraits. Thanks you guys!
Time to get married!
Married!! Woot woot!! I LOOOOOVE these portraits!!
Is this not the cutest cake and cupcake tower?
Congratulations Jenny & Tom!! Thank you for asking me to be a small part of your day. It was an honor! xoxo

5 Words to Describe Your Wedding Day
JENNY :: happy, wonderful, fun, beautiful, nerve-racking 😉
TOM:: perfect, happy, memorable, exciting, emotional
Most Memorable Moment
JENNY :: I have two… 1) I decided to have other fathers and daughters join us part way through our father daughter dance. I wasn’t sure how it would go but so many people joined in and it turned out to be a really special moment that I loved sharing with fathers and daughters of all ages! 2) When Tom had Wendy’s for me at our first look to make me laugh and help calm my nerves (I was reallllly nervous for the first look!)
TOM:: Watching Jenny eat Wendy’s in her wedding dress!
Any Advice for Future Brides/Grooms
JENNY :: I would recommend a well stocked party bus (especially if you’re nervous about being in front of a lot of people!)! 🙂
TOM:: Just take it all in and enjoy the day. Also, invest in a nice suit for yourself and the groomsmen instead of spending money on a tux you have to return!
JENNY :: Maybe the fact that we have a Wendy’s take out bag in our first look photos/the mini photo shoot we decided to have with the bag 🙂
TOM:: The groomsmen forgot to come get me before the ceremony and I almost missed my grand entrance
Do Anything Different
JENNY :: Not that I can think of…everything turned out wonderfully!
TOM :: I wouldn’t change a thing
