I photographed Mark’s brothers wedding last March, so when Mark had contacted me inquiring to photograph his marriage to Lori I couldn’t help but smile through reading the email. Its always a pleasure to document for a sibling of a past client and to see all their family again come together in celebration. It makes for a little extra special touch as your photographer.

I crossed my fingers as I packed my camera bag to head to Peninsula Lakes this saturday, eager to witness and document this beautiful wedding, as the forecast called for a chance of rain. And man did I feel lucky when the rain held off for their outdoor ceremony, their family group shots and their wedding party formals. Mark and Lori truly picked a wonderful group of friends to stand beside them. All strangers, with just Lori and Mark in common, they  immediately clicked as if they had all known each other forever. They took a time out from the photos to toast the bride and groom and to share a glass of champagne. Their laughter, infectious and their smiles, contagious! -What a joyous day!

Lori & Mark,

Your love is one of a kind. May you always hold that sparkle in your eyes for one another.

Wishing you both the most beautiful days as you share them now, as husband and wife.

Jess, xo!
