Wow. what a wedding!! They say less is more, and that was definitely the case with Jared and Marianne’s big day! I met with this couple over a year ago after Jared proposed with a STUNNING custom engagement ring (nice job, by the way!!) and you could tell right away that they were absolutely perfect for each other. Fast forward to yesterday, and that same love was still glowing in each other’s eyes the same way. The couple decided to do some first look photos before the ceremony, and I’m not sure how Jared managed to keep his composure, because even I was blown away with how beautiful his bride looked! Starting with a BEAUTIFUL setting at the Ivy Lea, the bride and groom exchanged vows overlooking breathtaking waterfront views with a small group of their closest friends and family. The crackling fireplace, rustic wooden decor, and amazing starry night themed accents added up for the perfect evening. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Matchett!! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together. Thank you for allowing me to capture your very special day. Hope you enjoy the sneak peeks!! **On a side note, I have photographed many weddings, and I will say this, the Ivy Lea Club venue was an absolute dream to work with. Highly recommend!!! Also, Connie Howes – I believe this is the second or third time I’ve shot a wedding that she’s been an officiant for … A+++ !
