Jenna and Blake are the perfect example of clients that have become life long friends! They are some of the sweetest, funniest, and most wonderful I have met. They showed me kindness and love from the first time we sat down to chat.
Working with them was a breeze. Jenna took the lead and knew exactly what she wanted while still being flexible and accommodating to her friends, family, and vendors. That speaks leaps and bounds about her character, and I am so happy to call her a dear friend. 🙂
This June wedding took place at Holy Family Catholic Church. The traditional Catholic church ceremony was something that Jenna had been dreaming of since she was little. Lifelong vows were made, hymns of joy were sung, and plenty of happy tears were shed!
The wedding party and guests traveled next to the reception at Klehm Arboretum. The venue was decorated beautifully with floral centerpieces and sparkling lights. It was the perfect setting for a summer wedding. There were so many heartfelt speeches and special moments. This couple has SUCH a strong support system of friends and family that were so excited to celebrate this new union.
I photographed the wedding party on the grounds located right at the venue. It was very hot out, but we had lots of shaded space to roam around. The garden has so much variety to it – a photographer’s dream! Later, once the sun was setting, Jenna, Blake, and I snuck out to get some more romantic and relaxed photos while their guests finished dinner inside.
Jenna and Blake, I wish you both all the best that life has to offer. It was an honor to document your love story!
