She woke up to the sound of rain on her wedding day. Knowing her reception was going to be outside and their back-up plan wasn’t ideal, she prayed for the rain to stop and did the only thing she could do – went back to sleep. When she awoke again, the rain had stopped and Jill got up ready to marry the love of her life in a wedding that went off without a hiccup. By the end of the night, the dirt and grass marks on Jill’s dress told the story of how she and Adam soaked in every moment of their day and packed in as much fun as they possibly could.
Jill and Adam, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful wedding. You are two of the sweetest, most passionate people I know and I am so thankful I was able to watch the next chapter of your love story begin. Many blessings for a long and happy marriage!
Jill was absolutely stunning on her wedding day. She is naturally gorgeous everyday, but her joy and excitement about marrying Adam made her even more beautiful!
The Newland House was a wonderful reception venue and provided Adam and Jill a great opportunity to really enjoy their time with their guests and each other.
This was one of my favorite moments from all of the weddings I’ve photographed. The bustle on Jill’s dress had come undone while she was dancing and her friends started fluffing her dress like was a parachute in elementary PE class! Jill was totally game and said she wished they had a ball to bounce on the dress! I love love love brides who enjoy their weddings and don’t sweat keeping their dresses absolutely pristine.
