The bright, sunny day could not have been more reflective of the overall atmosphere I was lucky enough to document and be a part of on Kristen and Jason's wedding day. Kristen and I were childhood friends, and it meant so much to me to share in the laughter and overwhelming joy exuded by everyone in attendance for the special day.
The poem above was lovingly placed at the bride and groom's table, while wildflowers from Kristen's childhood home further enlivened the cheerful decor of their celebration. However, the beautiful, earthy, happy decorations almost paled in comparison to the joy of their adoring family and friends. Everywhere I turned, there were beaming smiles, laughter, and warm embraces. The Earlyhouse venue in Louisa was alive, buzzing with excitement and celebration for two incredible people who swore their lives to each other on that sunny June afternoon. It was intoxicating.
Congratulations to Kristen and Jason, your love is one of such natural, comfortable beauty and despite sounding cliche, it truly was an honor to be a part of it all. CHEERS!!!
Kristen's mom was bursting with joy while getting her baby girl into her dress!
Admiring the beautiful bride...
Kristen's flower girl, Vera wanted to try on Kristen's wedding shoes, and it was the cutest thing I've ever seen!
GAH! THEIR FIRST LOOK WAS INCREDIBLE!
I wish I could take credit for this one, I love it SO much! My second shooter Krysta rocked this one out!
The bridesmaids sneakin a peak during portraits haha! :-)
So much joy as Kristen's Dad led her down the aisle!
A tree planting ceremony and a song played by friends. So beautiful!
Husband and Wife!!!
A sweet, meaningful song dedicated and sang by Lael, a long time friend, for the newlyweds.
Kristen and Jason were holding each other during the song just like Jason's mom and dad were holding each other in the background. My heart melted. <3
And then it was time to PARTY DOWN.
WOO HOO! Cheers!
Special thanks to Krysta Norman of Kan Pursuits for second shooting!
