As we stood on the back deck with all of the bridesmaids, Jen was getting her jewelry on and the bridesmaids were anxious to give her their surprise. They had written letters to her with the sweetest gift and I know it meant the world to Jen because she didn’t even try to hold back her tears. She was literally encircled by the women in her life who love her the most and it was the sweetest moment. It was the kind of moment that made me want to text the women who love me like that in my own life! It’s such an honor to capture wedding days like this!!!
Jen and Gino shared a first look and soon after that first moment Jen gave Gino a surprise gift. I honestly don’t know exactly what she gave him… but I know that it was so incredibly meaningful! She handed him an iPhone and told him to put the headphones in. He started listening and it was only a few seconds before the tears started. Evidently Jen recorded herself singing something that meant the world to him and it wrecked him. The tears were flowing and the emotions were so raw and genuine. Those are the moments that get me. Their entire wedding was just dreamy! I’m so happy with all of the portraits we were able to capture and I can’t wait to show you!!
And what’s better than getting to photograph an incredible couple at one of our favorite venues?! Getting to work with one of our favorite vendors! Mike and Shaina are dear friends of ours and we hadn’t seen them in forever! It was so fun to spend the day alongside of them and capture Jen and Gino’s perfect day! Enjoy some of my favorites!!
