Adrienne and Jay have brought together two families into one…and it’s quite possibly one of the cutest families you’ll see ever. Their children are such goofballs, and their little girl definitely rules the roost. Scott and I had such an wonderful time with them for their engagement session and on their wedding day. These two are kept super busy with their work and family, so it was nice to take some time to photograph them not once, but twice…just the two of them. One of the things I love most about photography sessions is it allows you to take a pause from your busy life, connect with each other, and preserve that little moment in time…that connection…that love.
This wedding was so genuine and authentic. From the beginning, they said they wanted it to be about the ceremony, their family and the people. The location they chose to create that environment was nothing short of perfect.
I have photographed at Liberty Presbyterian before, but never in their chapel. It is a very intimate, historic and warm place. The pews are all made of wood and an old piano sits at the front. Beautiful old wooden beams support the roof and an old church bell is located in the back of the church..reserved for those who have just gotten married. It felt very old and historical inside, which I feel like aided in creating a very connected spiritual environment. Their personal ceremony with all of their children was followed by refreshments and cookies outdoors. Instead of a formal reception, they opted for a low-key yet equally as fun time out with friends at a local restaurant.
Below are some photos from both their engagement & family session, as well as their wedding. A special thank you to my friend Melissa Jones who was my incredible second shooter on their wedding day. Another special thank you to my husband Scott who wrangled, played, shot, smiled and laughed his way through both the family session and wedding as my “assistant” (more like partner in crime) and additional shooter.
