Andy and Jenna- Thomas Birkby House Wedding

“right from the start
I knew that I’d found a home for my heart”
– Christina Perri

how incredible are Jenna’s shoes?!? and i loved the bracelets she wore with these little phrases wrapped around it!Jenna’s gown suited her SO perfectly! It was truly one of the most stunning gowns I’ve seen.and the gentlemen were looking quite handsome themselves!lots of layers require lots of helping hands :)A big thank you to my friend and talented photographer Sarah for second shooting for the day! She grabbed this great shot of Andy as soon as he saw his bride for the first time on their wedding day :) first looks are always one of my most favorite moments of a wedding day :)safe to say I could have done portraits of these two ALL. DAY. LONG! such a beautiful, joyful couple!!another one of Sarah’s photos! Loved her angle!Jenna you are absolutely STUNNING!how adorable are their sweet flower girls?! so at this point in the day, it started raining. For a day where the forecast wasn’t calling for ANY rain, we were all surprised when it started coming down. Thankfully, these guys are so wonderful and go-with-the-flow and didn’t let a little rain ruin their spirits!For all those couples out there that think doing a ‘first look’ will somehow lessen that moment when you walk down the aisle, I think Andy and Jenna will both agree that this was one of the very best and most emotional moments of the day. I think this is the way every woman hopes her groom will look at her when she walks down the aisle:
thanks to Sarah for grabbing this photo of Jenna and her dad as they started their walk :)I think we ALL had tears in our eyes at this point:and then… it started raining. like, really raining. It didn’t phase anybody there, much less Jenna and Andy, they’re that wonderful. the staff grabbed umbrellas really quickly so everyone was able to stay dry, and I think these will forever hold a place in my heart as one of my most favorite, charming, memorable ceremonies I’ve ever gotten to witness. How adorable is this with Andy holding the umbrella over them?!married!!then we snuck upstairs for a few more portraits while everyone enjoyed cocktail hour!oh ya know, just practicing for their first dance :)Marriage looks SO good on the two of you :)one of my favorite portraits of the day!! a few lovely reception details:loved their beautiful cake! and they sent everyone home with a slice of pie! yum! :)LOVE this from their first dance!it was QUITE the party! this makes me laugh every time! that guy in the back was 100% committed to catching the garter… unfortunately, his awesome attempt was quite unsuccessful :)photobooth fun!Jenna and Andy, I know you had such a wide choice of photographers to pick from, and I’m honored and humbled that you would pick me. thank you so much for letting me play a small part in your beautiful day! i couldn’t adore you both any more, and I hope you have an absolutely wonderful time in Hawaii!! :)
