So much to say about these two! They just gravitate towards each other like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Their wedding day went off without a hitch. Sarah, the coordinator at Grand Tradition did a fantastic job at keepin’ everything moving and on track.
I had the best time photographing this day from the very beginning. From girls poppin’ champagne to the bubble exit at the end of the night! Every time the girls pop some bubbly I always have to warn my bride to pop it AWAY FROM THE CAMERA but that never stops me from flinching in fear of getting corked in the face haha! One of these day’s I’ll have someone record my face when it happen’s because I’m sure it’s ridiculous.
Jessica and Eric had a traditional Catholic ceremony outside at Grand Tradition underneath the gazebo but before the ceremony they did a first look(highly recommend, especially for a winter wedding) and they read private vows to each other and oh my gosh it was the most beautiful thing ever you’re not going to want to miss looking at those photos! Eric’s reaction of seeing Jessica for the first time was one of the sweetest reactions I’ve ever seen from a Groom at a first look.
Their ceremony was full of emotional and sacred little moments along with moment’s of Eric winking at the camera and making the best face while putting on Jessica’s ring he is such a character and I just loved photographing him on their wedding day. Don’t even get me started on Jessica! She is just the kindest and sweetest and was the most beautiful bride! She purchased these lace Vintage bell sleeves from Etsy to go along with her dress, which was from Davids Bridal by the way!! And it was just the perfect addition to her whole look, I could’ve photographed her all day!
The sun went down really quick after their ceremony but we still were able to capture some really beautiful and romantic portraits and I kinda really am diggin’ the ones with flash. I almost always never exclusively do not shoot Bride and Groom portraits with flash but I love the way there’s came out!! They are classy and romantic and Jess and Eric just killed it!
The reception was one big party with heartfelt toasts, the sweetest parent dances, a cash filled money dance, the dopest candy and fondue bar, and ended with a bubble exit! Oh yeah I almost forgot during the bubble exit Eric announced to the whole bridal party that I was pregnant and for some reason I just felt so embarrassed but he was so happy to tell everyone and it was the cutest thing!
Congratulations Jessica and Eric!! Love you guys wishing you nothing but the best!
