Married: Jenna and Doug 06.20.09

Jenna and Doug were the first couple to book me for 2009 last year so it feels like I have been waiting for this wedding to happen forever! Last September we met up for some engagement portraits near where their wedding would be (and encountered a family of deer making this still one of my favorite engagement shoots!) which helped with the waiting for their wedding to take place. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for their wedding day – sunny and not a drop to be seen anywhere. So far *knocks on wood* my brides have all been VERY lucky when it comes to rain on Saturdays! I started off the day with the girls and my assistant Nicole headed over with the guys and dodged nurf darts as they played around before they had to get dressed. The ceremony was held on Baldwin-Wallace campus and the church was GORGEOUS and modern. We were able to stay in the area for pictures afterward which always isn’t an option but the grounds are gorgeous! The cocktail hour – one of the nicest I’ve seen – and reception were held at the Sheraton at the airport. The party went all night long and NEVER hit the ‘boring’ stage thanks to some seriously awesome DJ-ing by Troy Entertainment. The most important part of the day of course though was Jenna and Doug getting married because once you meet them, you instantly see that they are perfect for each other.

Thanks so much to you both for choosing me to capture your day and I hope that you enjoyed your honeymoon!

Nicole got this awesome image of the guy’s array of cologne sitting out while they were getting ready.


Nicole also got this shot of the Nerf guns.


One of the ringbearer’s got stage fright so the first one down the aisle came back, took his hand and walked him down = priceless!


The dip & kiss! Gotta love it!


This chapel was so gorgeous!


I walked out of the chapel and this is pretty much how the groomsman were already standing, I just moved a couple of them and shot. Easiest pose ever and one of my favorite groomsman pics ever!


My favorite shot of the two of them from the day.


Jenna was such a beautiful bride, I really adore this bridal shot of her.


They had bubble guns to keep the kids occupied during the reception and I loved the way this little girl was entranced by the bubbles and the bokeh the bubbles made.


I left just as Troy Entertainment was digging into their bag of tricks – one of them being this lit jacket which I adored – and so did Jenna. She took it from Doug and boogied around in it until it became too hot for her to wear. Every few songs or so to keep things interesting the DJ would pull a new trick out of his sleeve. I LOVED it! So much fun from a photographer’s standpoint!

Next up… NEW KIDS! Woo hoo!
