A little (actually insanely intense and pouring) rain couldn’t keep these two from having an absolutely perfect wedding day. After it was all said and done, the rainy moments of the day were a distant memory completely overtaken by the fact that they were finally husband and wife. We honestly don’t know if we’ve worked with two sweeter, more kind and genuine people than Ryann and Jay. Jay is a true gentleman and loves Ryann as evidently and palpably when she’s no where around as when he’s looking right at her. Ryann is the picture of elegance and is as stunning on the inside as she is in her white lace dress and mother’s jewelry. They were an absolutely dream to photograph and we are so happy to have been able to spend so much time getting to know them through this process :)
Ryann and Jay decided to have a first look on their wedding day, which took place in the stunning backyard of Ryann’s parents. However, about 3 minutes afterward the sky opened up so it was one of the only moments we were able to photograph outside before the ceremony! But we were able to take a few pictures inside the house which had a really sweet and intimate feel. Then after their completely precious ceremony we took some of our favorite pictures of the day right outside of the church where they said “I do”! Then we all headed to the gorgeous reception and everyone ate a delicious meal and some fabulous cake. Kelsey was pretty excited to learn that one of the layers was Pumpkin Spice flavored… ;) Then everyone danced the night away to the incredible band “The Respectables” who performed their hearts out and blew us all away with their talent. We loved watching Ryann and Jay dance together all night long, constantly switching between laughing hysterically during the fast songs and then lovingly serenading each other and gazing into each others eyes for the slow ones. Their love for each other is so beyond evident and we were honored to document it as it played out before our eyes.
Ryann and Jay, you two were beyond great to work with and we’re truly sad our time photographing you guys during this process is over!!! We consider you all friends now, and are definitely going to have to keep in touch :) We’re so excited to see where this whole marriage thing takes you guys, and we’re pretty certain you’ll be great at it!
