Jessica & Joe were my first engagement session of 2015, on a cold day in January. Jessica is one of the sweetest women I have ever met & Joe was a trooper through the cold & joked around with us. I knew during that engagement session that they were two amazing people & when it came time for their wedding day, they would be on cloud nine with each other! I walked up to Joe & Jessica’s wedding day in awe! I instantly saw all of the thought & time that went into all of the decorations Jessica selected for their wedding day. From the hand written escort cards attached to baby pumpkins to the touches of fall decorations, skulls and purple & gold colors, no detail was left unnoticed. Than I started the rest of the day by spending time with both Jessica & Joe & the day got more beautiful from there! They both were full of excitement & a little bit of nerves while they spent time with their close friends & family before it was time to say their I-DOs! You could see the happy tears forming in their eyes as they finally got sight of each other & as Jess started to walk down the aisle to her husband! Jess’ bridesmaids looked stunning in the dark purple lace gowns she picked out that were accented with gorgeous orange bouquets, that were created by Maryann Johnson. Those colors really popped when we got onto the beach for some portraits & I loved the contrast!
Jessica & Joe made my job easy photographing them because they just wanted to wrap their arms around each other & soak in the newlywed moment! I enjoyed being surrounded by all of their guests that truly never stopped celebrating Jessica & Joe! This created the best dance party photographs of 2015! Some of these photographs I could remember the exact song that they all were screaming at the top of their lungs! To end the night they exited with the perfect confetti toss! I swear I felt the walls shaking as their guests cheered for them! They all were pretty excited to pelt confetti at them also! 😉 Congratulations on your marriage Jessica & Joe!
