Candlelight Farms Wedding: Jenn & Mark

When the ribbons & bows were tied and the flowers were fastened in her hair, she thought about him. When the seconds turned into minutes and the hour was fast upon them, she thought about him. She thought about the years together, and the years ahead. About all the laughs that had been laughed, and the laughter that was still to be. She thought about their inside jokes, the punchlines that don’t even need to be spoken, and the space in the curve of his hand where hers just always….fits. She thought about the future, she thought about the past. And she thought about this very moment right now. And then she finally realized what they all have in common. That when she thinks about all the best things that have happened in her life…she thinks about him.

When the door was opened and the footsteps fell, he thought about her. When the seconds turned into hours and minutes dragged on for what felt like eternity, he thought about her. He thought about the years together, and the years ahead. About all quiet smiles that had been shared, and the smiles that were still yet to be. He thought about how she would look when he finally saw her, and the words that don’t even need to be spoken. And how the space between them would just disappear, because his life with her always just….fits. For just a second he didn’t think about the future, or think about the past. He just focused on this very moment right here. Because he already knew, that what all their days together would have in common was this and the happiness he felt. And when he thought about his whole lifetime….he thought about her.

Married: Jenn & Mark

Jenn & Mark were married on a day that ranged from bright sunshine to full out rain, and every possibility in between. But just like the two people I knew them to be, they basked in the sunshine, and danced in the rain. And surrounded by all the people they love most in this world, they kicked off a life together right. With love and laughter and celebrating come what may. Jenn is actually one half of the wedding blogging duo, The Weddingistas, along with her best friend and Maid of Honor Becky. So there was no doubt in my mind that this wedding was going to be one for the record books, and these guys did not disappoint. No detail was overlooked, and yet not a single thing was added that didn’t feel like Jenn & Mark. That is a hard task to pull off indeed, and these guys did it flawlessly. J&M, you are our initial soul mates, our foodie friends, and two of the coolest people we’ve ever met. There are no words to thank you for the honor of having us there with you on Day 1. My hope is that you will love like this through all the days ahead…..feeding each other, laughing at inside jokes where only you two know the punchlines, and always dancing in the rain.

So much love,
J&M

    Absolutely hands down some of my favorite images you guys have ever shot. Each shot is so timeless and elegant but SO full of emotion. You truly told the story of the day and didn’t even need a huge number of images to do so. The way the light makes such an impact in the black and white shots is gorgeous!
