"Green eyes, you're the one I wanted to find.
And honey you should know, that I could never go on without you."
Green Eyes. Coldplay
The room was full of excitement. I could feel the anticipation through the bridesmaids smiles. The dress, the flower for Jenny's hair, the pale pink Peony-esque bouquets, the St. Louis Cardinal cuff links.....all of these details added up to one thing.....a wedding that I could NOT wait to shoot. There was more than details to take pictures of, there was a love that was ready to be documented. A love shared between Jason and Jenny. I witnessed it at the engagement session, and they took it to an entirely new level on this day. I feel like good things happen to good people, and being in love has never looked so good on two people. Congrats on the start of your new lives together.
(And in case you missed it, their engagement session was one of my favorites.....so make sure you check it out and read all about their love story!)
|I loved all of these details! The bible and rosary was from her Grandma.|

If you could go back to your wedding day, knowing now how the day went, is there anything you would change or suggest to other brides?
Put your dress on way earlier than you think you need to! It takes much longer to get it on the day of your wedding than it does for the dress fittings.
Have itineraries for important people the day of the wedding (i.e: moms, MOH, grandma’s, etc.)
Relax and take in the moment because it goes way too fast
Favorite part about working with us? :)
Having the best photographers ever! Not only are you guys amazing at capturing moments but you were my personal assistant all day as well and I greatly appreciate it. From my makeup to dress and wedding veil to wine; you girls did it all and it made the day just that much more enjoyable.
