Wedding Wednesday: Jen & Justin

Wedding

Jen & Justin, thank you so much for having us as your wedding photography team. I can’t believe your day has already come and gone. I feel like it was just yesterday we were at your engagement session with Wrigley talking about the proposal. 🙂

There were so many different highlights during your wedding, but if I had to power rank the day, here are my top 5 moments. 😉

#5. Confetti photos in the morning with Jen. First time during preparation photos and I LOVED it!
#4. When you cut your cake with an ax. (Yes, you read that right. #FireFighterGroom!)
#3. Both speeches were on point, but I especially loved the blessed beer in the attic and Oreo cookies. 🙂
#2. Your bubbles exit from your ceremony! You two can ROCK the dip!!!
#1. Your first look and first dance. I guess that’s two things…but they were both so sweet!!!

Thanks again for having us out. 🙂 I hope you two are enjoying your mini-moon and snuggle up, your sneak peek ready!!!

Officially Mr & Mrs!!!

This was such a sweet detail. Jen wanted to incorporate her Grandma’s dress into her own and it turned out beautiful.
I’m so glad we were able to get a photo of the two of them together. 🙂

Quick stop at the bar for a couple of shots.
Such a fun idea Jen & Justin! Well worth it. 🙂

If you’ve never been to Bird Haven/Barber and Oberwortmann Horticultural Center,
you should totally check it out! They’re so many different fun areas. 🙂

I LOVED working with this Bridal Party!
They were full of joy and excited to celebrate with their friends. 🙂

When your husband is a fire fighter. #ItMustBeDone!

Jen & Justin surprised and impressed me all day long. 🙂
I couldn’t get enough of  them!

This was such a sweet dance!
I love daddy-daughter dances. 🙂

🙂

Open dance! These guests were on the dance floor ALL NIGHT!
I loved it. 🙂

When your crew is there to celebrate with you. 🙂
