Brian and Jessica contacted me well over a year ago about shooting their wedding. Jessica had lots of questions and after meeting with both of them she decided that I would be a good fit for their wedding day! Shortly afterwards we planned our engagement session to which I absolutely loved (and they did too… view those here!). Anyways, I knew with Jessica’s attention to detail, her wedding was going to be fabulous. She and Brian married at the Mackinaw Valley Vineyard – a beautiful venue, one I was super excited to photograph at. With rain in the forecast we were a little nervous, but it turned out to be a beautiful day. 9.10.11.
Jessica looked STUNNING. Not even kidding…. she looked breathtaking. Everything from her dress to her hair to her veil and shoes…. beautiful.
And the below. One of my favorites from the day and actually one of the first pictures I took of the two of them together. I love how natural they both are…. just enjoying each other.
A little snack in between photos!
And then there was this pond… oh my how I fell in love with the scummy, grimy pond. It just looked fabulous. And I love the one below of Jessica looking back.
The reflection of the bridal party made this possibly one of my favorite bridal party pictures ever. I love how it looks like a watercolor painting….
Could they get any cuter? I think not.
Right before the reception they headed back in the Bug Limo Jessica had rented. So cool. She loves her green bug so they just had to go with the stretch.
Thanks to my second photographer, Laura Meador, for snagging some of the detail shots below!
MORE… yes MORE from this beautiful couple to come. A beautiful “week after” session got us even more stunning photographs of these two lovebirds.
