Ok. I think I should warn you about two things:
1) This wedding is AMAZEBALLS.
2) I’m a ball of mush at this point. Seriously, if you could see me right now, you’d probably be like, “Whoa, she looks like she’s been crying for three days.“ You’d probably also observe my attire, and follow up that last statement with, “Look at her, she’s too emotional to even get dressed for the day!“ And, to your first point I’d say: “I made the mistake of arranging this wedding to the tune of an Adele-centric Pandora Radio station. I did not prepare myself for the emotional consequences of combining relationshippy music and touching wedding photos. SORRY.”
But, to your second, much more hurtful statement, I’d say, “Please, step off, this is my blogging attire. Yoga pants and a t-shirt my honey got from a Bar Mitzvah he attended at 13 is also known as appropriate work attire for full-time bloggers. Can I get a what what, if you know what I’m talking about? … What’s that? No one knows what I’m talking about? And what’s that? Don’t end a sentence with a preposition? Oh… ok.”
ANYWHO. Nessa Kessinger – the fabulous photographer responsible for today’s wedding – and I have been so excited to share this incredible day with your faces for quite some time, and we’re *so excited* that the day has finally come! Now listen – I heart Nessa for a whole slew of reasons; she’s lovely, she’s adorable, she’s hilarious… and she happens to take pretty decent pictures, too. ;) No, but seriously, Nessa knows how to tell the story of your wedding day, and, once you see it all put together, it’s got to be the most beautiful thing in the world to scroll through. Not everyone can do this; it’s an incredible skill, knowing just the right moments, the right angles, the right lighting, the right everything… and Nessa’s got that down. Just wait… you’ll see.
By the way, aside from the storytelling factor, I’ve got to say that my favorite thing about this wedding is the freaking DANCING. I obsess over weddings that scream, “FUN WAS HAD ON THIS DAY.” There really is nothing more important in my opinion, than that.
A few words from our bride, Jennifer:
The only thing that I would say is that Joe and I wanted a simple wedding without all the fu-fu, so we chose a venue with natural beauty and lots of space for our long guest list. Our main focus for the day was to have a blast to not only celebrate the day of our marriage, but also all of the hard work and stress that went into the planning. Even though it was HOT that day, everyone had a blast and love the photos that were captured.
Now… break it down!
Sometimes… when you have actual *fun* at your wedding, things can get a little… ummm… hot…
… But guess what? There’s nothin’ wrong with stripping down and getting comfortable.

Now that’s what I call a WEDDING.
Tell me, what’s the most important thing about a wedding day, in your opinion? I think you know where my head’s at. :)
