Jessica & Lee’s wedding at Greenhouse Two Rivers fell on the most beautiful Fall day. I didn’t get the chance to meet them before the wedding day so I couldn’t wait to meet them after months of planning to make this day everything they dreamed of! I immediately fell in love with both of their relaxed and kind personalities! And it wasn’t just them! All of their family & friends were just as wonderful!
We started out the afternoon with a few final getting-ready moments! I am absolutely obsessed with her dress by the way! It is quite possibly one of the top favorites that I have ever photographed! I just knew she was going to blow Lee away! And of course, she did! They shared a first look and a private moment under the big tree before we took photos with their wedding party! Their flower girl and ring bearer were all about having their photos taken too, which of course just made my heart melt even more.
Soon it was time for the ceremony! We headed back inside where we watched as Lee & Jessica shared their vows and exchanged rings. They also sealed their marriage in a handfasting ceremony before sharing their first kiss as husband and wife! It was so sweet and absolutely perfect!
After family photos came one of my favorite parts of the day. Golden hour is frequently a photographer’s favorite time of day to photograph because the light is so soft and beautiful. And while I do love that – I also love when we get to sneak away because the couple just gets that moment to soak in this (nearly) private moment and love on each other. The rest of the day they spend surrounded by their loved ones, so it is just nice to share that moment alone, and just happen to get some really beautiful photos at the same time!
Soon it was time for the reception! Everyone had dinner while mingling with family and friends! The best man and maid of honor shared toasts to the couple which brought both laughter and maybe a few tears. After cutting their cake, the couple shared a few special dances before the dance floor officially opened to the party! It was such a beautiful night!
Jessica & Lee, Thank You for choosing to share your day with me! I am so happy I could help capture these memories for you! Congratulations again!
Lots of Love,
