Rain was threatening and the sun was peeking in and out from behind the clouds. But when Janet walked in a few hours before walking down the aisle, she was radiating joy and daring the sky to open up with rain. Janet was so excited and so calm that it was easy to see nothing was going to ruin this day.
When Andrew arrived with his brother for pictures, he was calm, cool, and completely collected. He had been looking forward to this day just as much as Janet had and he could not wait for her to become his wife.
Andrew and Janet were married at Zen downtown with their closest friends and family. The evening was not short of smiles, laughter, good food and lots of dancing! Thank you guys so much for the honor of capturing your day as you became husband and wife. We had so much fun and we can’t wait to hear about your honeymoon to Hawaii later this summer!
Just to warn you… I had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites. So, this post may be a little long :-)
Once Janet was ready we stepped outside for some portraits.
It did start drizzling so we found this PERFECT spot inside of Zen downtown.
The flowers by Greg Foster were amazing!
Lindsay had a picture of her celebrating like this with Janet from her wedding day so we just had to recreate!
Gosh… both of you are so wonderful and SO beautiful!
Janet! You are stunning.
And then Andrew arrived looking all suave and debonair.
His brother Nick was an incredible support to Andrew all day.
Janet and Andrew asked for a picture of the two of them before the wedding without seeing each other.
So, as I was getting these shots…
Ben was getting this shot below… and I love it.
Andrew’s parents were so fun and had a blast the entire day!
And then it was time… :-)
Doesn’t Lindsay look GOOD in that purple???
And this is when I started to cry. So thankful for auto focus!
And at that same moment, Ben captured Andrew seeing his bride for the first time.
He couldn’t hold back the tears either.
My image on the left, Ben’s image on the right.
They were so excited! It was adorable to watch them catching glimpses of each other.
They were SO excited! They were married!!
You two… are just gorgeous.
Ben captured this image and it nearly took my breath away.
It also made me a little jealous that I didn’t get it :-)
You guys…! You’re just adorable together.
It was so hard to capture them without smiles on their faces.
The cake by Kathy & Company was gorgeous. And delicious!
I’m also jealous of this shot that Ben captured of the cake through the flowers!
Cocktail hour consisted of fondue by Good Life Catering.
It was nothing short of incredible!
Being introduced for the first time as Mr. & Mrs!
I just love first dances.
Videography done by the wonderful Jeff Bennett of View Digital Media.
Father Daughter dances get me almost every time.
Dancing went on continuously thanks to music by Jumpin’ Jukebox!
Janet had emailed the ladies attending the wedding to encourage them to wear fun hats and fascinators.
The women took up the challenge and had some really fun head accessories!
We snuck out at sunset for some outside shots on Main Street.
And the sunset! It was gorgeous!
A little more dancing…
A few more shots with Shutterbooth…
The last dance…
And then the departure.
Congratulations again, you guys!
