I first met these two on Jenna’s birthday last year – we pretty much in my opinion hit it off right away. We laughed over cheesy jokes, and sarcastic humor – which carried on to their Engagement Session. Their wedding day was filled with, family, culture, love, and oh so many smiles! I was honored to be a part of it.
The day started by us going to Jenna and Ben’s home, and there the girls were getting ready for they day. They were a great bunch of ladies! I swooned over Jenn’s blush gown while I photographed it. The minute she stepped into that gown her face lit up with excitement to marry the love of her life. At their first look – they reminded me how much I ADORE first looks! The love that you capture in the photographs is something you cannot re-create. Ben could not keep his eyes off Jenna from that moment on.
Their ceremony was filled with special moments from family that included a song! It ended with a Celtic Circle and Blessing, where they had their first kiss as husband and wife. Their Cocktail hour was filled with laughs, playing in the water and bites from Father Fats in Stevens Point. During dinner the families sang Happy Birthday and presented a cake to Ben – Yes he got married on his Birthday! What an awesome way to celebrate your birthday every year?! The reception was EPIC – and yes I so not use that word that often but it WAS! They danced away to a AWESOME BAND! THE PRESIDENTS! They rocked – and I wish I could have stayed and danced the night away with everyone!
Send these two some love, and congratulations by comments below – if they get 15 blog comments they will receive a complimentary 11×14 canvas of their choice!
Thank you so much Jenna and Ben for the honor of capturing your wedding day memories!
With Love – Christine
