Jen was a dream client - she is very artistic and valued photography more than anything, which made photographing their wedding a breeze. Every detail seemed like it was done just for my sake!
Um. Yeah. Can I say how much I love her bouquet? I don't think words can express it. Made by the super fabulous bomb dot com Princess Lasertron.
Each member of the wedding party got a homemade felted wrist corsage or pin. It ROCKED.
Of course, we can't forget Chad, who had his own manly version.
(Okay, fine, you got me, I just couldn't fit Chad's into the collage.)
Even her hair matched the peacock color theme.
Most brides have their wedding party fawn over them. Jen fawned over her wedding party.
Jen is the single most expressive person I've ever photographed. EVER. I told her I could do an entire blog post dedicated just to her expressions. I love it!
You might notice something about this next picture. The scar running down Jen's back. (Watch out, this is where I get choked up.) Jen had scoliosis, to the point where she needed surgery. So she underwent a painful and difficult surgery. At that point, many guys would run far, far away. But Chad?
Chad proposed three months later.
Anyone else tearing up? Yeah, me too.
I'm sure that having to through such a difficult experience is a huge part of what makes Jen such a doggone amazing person. Did I just say "doggone"? I did.
The location of Jen and Chad's reception, Legacy Hall in Omaha, was awesome for two key factors. First, the back of it doubles as a storage yard. So what?
SO ABANDONED TROLLEYS, THAT'S WHAT! (You'll have to wait for Part 2 for the second reason it was awesome.)
I could not have had more fun with this girl!
Oh, right, there was a groom, too. An exceptional groom, at that. :)
This is as he was seeing Jen for the first time. How much do you LOVE that they chose to do their first glance in front of the broken-down trolley? Lots!!
I should say that as I was editing these, my husband saw them and said, "That's what he wore on his wedding day?? No fair! How come I didn't get to wear that??"
How amazing are Chad's eyes??
Sigh. Aren't they so sweet together?
And I hate to do this. I really, really do. But this post is already ridiculously long and we haven't even hit the awesome abandoned farmstead or the ceremony or reception. So I'm gonna leave you hanging. You'll have to stay tuned for part two.
Come back. It'll be worth it. I promise.
::Update!:: Part two is here. YAY!
