Jessica & Adam – Wedding

November 21, 2012

The sun was shining to the max in a cloudless ocean blue sky. The trees were still ablaze with the bold colors of Fall. Yellow, red and orange leaves danced in a chilly November wind. Everything about the day was perfect. In the bridal suite country music playing from a corner iPod was no match for the rising and falling sounds of laughter, joy and perhaps a little nerves energy that passed between Jessica, her maid of honor and her mom. Her day was finally here, the day Jessica would marry the man who had won her over with his rugged good looks, his raw sense of humor and his thoughtfulness. Surrounded by close family and friends, Jessica and Adam created a wedding that reflected their relationship in the truest form.

Jessica and Adam, thank you for the honor of capturing your wedding day. You are both two of the warmest, funniest most caring people I’ve had the privilege to meeting. I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciated your family and friends and how they rallied to ensure your day was everything you’d ever dreamed of and more. I hope you are both enjoying some much need rest and relaxation on the beaches St. Lucia.

The veil Jessica wore to walk down the aisle was the same veil her mother wore 30 years previously to marry Jessica’s dad.

Mother of the bride, so proud and honored to see her radiant daughter in her veil.

The light pouring onto Jessica as she descended the staircase was perfect.

The fierceness of Jessica.

I couldn’t get enough of the bold Fall tress that decorate the property and the slight wind that blew Jessica’s veil.

The amazing colors. An absolutely gorgeous bride.  What more could you ask for?

Jessica’s bouquet was wrapped in lace from her mother’s own wedding dress.

These shots are so Adam. He has such sense of humor and a way of never taking life too seriously

My absolute favorite part of the day is when I get my newly married couples together in front of my camera.


Jessica, RAWR!

We came across a little house on the edge of the property with the cutest porch, and this is where we capture some of my favorite shots from the day.


Jessica’s maid of honor Betsy was truly amazing, not to mention stunning. I was so grateful to her for the way she attended to Jessica’s every need and also in the way she stepped up to help me every way she could. Love her.

First dance.
