I arrived at the church early on Friday to set up and find a good outdoor location out of the wind for portraits. But I didn’t get very far. I peeked in to say hello to Laura and found her in her wedding gown. Excited and ready to see her groom. Trying not to cry just yet, because once the tears started she was afraid she wouldn’t be able to stop them!
Jerry + Laura chose to have a first look, and by doing this they were able to tear up a little AND have time to re-compose themselves for pictures! :-)
We had fun finding unique spots inside the church for some portraits. Okay, maybe I had fun finding spots… Jerry + Laura had fun hugging and kissing each other. :-)
And look!! A perfect spot outside without gusting wind!!!!
I love catching couples sharing a quick moment during their ceremony. :-)
I also LOVE how Jerry can make Laura feel so comfortable, happy and in love.
She just can’t keep from kissing him! :-)

Jerry + Laura – Thank you so much for inviting me to be a part of your wedding!! It was such an honor for me to be there with you and your families. I truly enjoyed watching you interact and look out for each other throughout the day – from the emotional first look to the sock selection at your house to your first dance as husband + wife.
