jenny and roman : omaha wedding photography

Has it really been since October 2 that I posted? Wow! I've been SO BUSY! Babies are being born, I'm packing up for my trip to Italy, trying to get sneak peeks out to everyone I shot before I leave! I need a couple more days, please!

So this blog is a long time coming! I wanted to space out my weddings a little bit since they will be scarce over the winter. :)

Jenny and Roman's Omaha wedding was one of my favorite weddings of the year. The details were amazing - it's so clear that Jenny has amazing design talent! Roman is from Russia (my first of two Russian grooms this year!) and he had the most diverse wedding party ever - most of his groomsmen were from out of the country!

I started with some shots of the guys. These were some of the most photogenic guys I've shot - they were so into it!

Then I met with the ladies and the two bridesmen. Love it!

Their ceremony location was amazing - the deck at 1316 Jones Street. The colors, the foliage, the all worked together beautifully.

After the ceremony the wedding party and I hopped into a couple limos and headed out for some more pictures.

And of course...we had to have some Jenny and Roman alone time!

And in an unrelated note, did I mention how awesome her bridal party was? Check out this AMAZING eye makeup. LOVE.


Remember when I said how awesome the details of their wedding were?

When we arrived at the reception site, Jenny and Roman took part in a Russian tradition that involved breaking a loaf of bread, dipping it in salt, and eating it. Whoever gets the bigger half of the loaf of bread is supposed to be the one in charge of the marriage!

And a game where Roman had to identify Jenny based on her legs alone...while blindfolded. Needless to say, hilarity ensued.

And the first dance! One of my favorite wedding events. So romantic!

So what most people may not have known when they arrived at this wedding was that they weren't just here for a wedding. They were also in for an amazing concert by some AMAZING singers.

And before I leave you, I'll share some ring shots!




Roman and Jenny, thanks so much for letting me be a part of your day! It was amazing! :)

P.S. How do you get a bride off a wall?
