I first met Jennifer and Brian at a wedding show, right at closing. Most vendors close their booth early but we know some people can’t come until the last minute so we try to stay until the very end. I loved talking to them and felt it was going to be a perfect fit! I was so excited to hear from Jennifer shortly after. L
I’ve been closely working with them ever since, getting to capture their love during every season! They’ve always been nothing more than perfect to work with. From waterfalls to cherry blossoms to a lovely end-of-summer vineyard, it’s always been so much fun! So of course, their wedding was no surprise, one of the all-time greatest!
Tim and I had the most fun at Jennifer and Brian’s wedding!!! It was the perfect wedding to go out with a bang of the 2022 season! Their friends and family are hilarious, fun, competitive with their fun and down-right legendary! The dancing, the decorated car, speeches, sparklers…every aspect was so fun!!! We enjoyed every single second, most taking us by surprise lol
Jennifer looked breathtaking in her dress and then looked even more posh in her jumpsuit. Brian and his guys rocked Derek Zoolander…and actually so did Jennifer. The dance moves from everyone were incredible! Seriously, every aspect of this wedding was just absolute perfection and funnnnnnnn!
We are so over-the-moon to have met Jennifer and Brian, to get to capture their story and to consider them friends.
Stay tuned for photos of their Vietnamese tea ceremony (I can only fit so many photos in one preview album to my dismay!)
Congratulations!!! We adore you, Jennifer and Brian!!!
See you soon and all our love!
