sarah & stephen {sneak peek}

This is just a super-duper quick little blog to share a few pics from my oh-so AMAZING New Year's Eve wedding!!  Holy-moly, i can not explain how much fun this wedding was.  I'll make sure you guys get a FULL big ole blog story after all the pics are done, but until then... enjoy this little teaser...

Wishin' on bones...

I cannot explain in words how lucky I feel to have gotten to shoot this wedding.  Hold on to your seats and grab a big ole cup o' joe, because I think this is the longest blog post I've ever done!  How do you narrow it down when everywhere you aim your camera is another amazing detail - puppies, horses, a gorgeous farm, crazy-beautiful flowers- another funny incident or another super sweet moment??  Well, you just don't.  I simply love this family so much and Sara and Jake are two of the most gracious people I've ever worked with.  They deserved the perfect day, and I have to say, it was pretty darn close to that!  So sit back, relax and enjoy the story of Sara and Jake...

I'm starting out with some pics from the rehearsal dinner... notice the finery they are sporting!  Jake and Sara asked folks to wear something they'd NEVER consider wearing to a wedding.  There was everything from PJs to Prom dresses...  And their sweet families toasted them until the whole room was just one big blubbery mess.  LOVE.

 

These next are a mix of the rehearsal and the morning of the wedding.  Notice the wishbone flag... more about that later...

 

 

oh, Lordy.  Those of you who really know me know I CANNOT resist doggies... much less puppies.  Sara's sis had just gotten this sweet baby and he showed up in {probably WAY TOO MANY} of the wedding pics...

 There is just something about being able to get ready at home.  Sara and her sis getting ready in their own bathroom with family wedding pics just outside the door.  Gotta love that.

Ok... gonna jump back a little here... these next few are from a bridal session we did at the farm a few weeks before the wedding...

And back to wedding day.  The boutonniere (and rest of the flowers) are by Samantha at Mulberries.  Girlfriend ROCKED it!!!!   Sara wanted cotton, so Hope (from Simply Southern Catering) brought her bags of it back from some family in Georgia (or was it Alabama - sorry if I messed that up Hope). 

 Sweet, sweet, sweet first look.  Holy moly, the way Jake looks at her is enough to send anyone into heart palpitations. 

ok... so, I think it may be time to share the story of the wishbone.  Back years and years ago, when Sara and Jake were not even really old enough to think about things like serious dating, they had a bit of a crush on one another.  Working at a camp, they were on the dishline together (how romantic, right?!?) and a wishbone showed up on a plate.  They each grabbed a side (see photo below for the reenactment) and Jake ended up with the bigger side.  It wasn't until years later that Jake got his wish of a date with Sara.  Little did he know, Sara had wished for the same. 

The reenactment was true to the original outcome...  hehehe.

Oh, my.  gotta love a bride who doesn't take herself too seriously.  ;)

Seriously, are these not the coolest flowers ever?  OMG.  I died a little.

Ok... so,  the ceremony.  I'm gonna put my photographer's high-hat for just a second...  I LOVE a ceremony where I have the ability to move around...  With the barn behind them, I could hide in the shadows while getting really unique shots and the ability to move around on both sides let me get soooo many great shots!! It doesn't hurt that they were so precious and full of love and emotion and even some laughter. 

Samantha did all of these too...  gah.  Amazing.  And the ladies at Enchanted Details worked soooo hard to make it all come together. 

I've never seen a cooler cake (or cakes). By sugarbuzz Bakers.

The food (Simply Southern catering) was delicious!!!  She made homemade pies with fresh peaches...  insanely delicious!  I'm pestering Hope to make me one!!!

Some of my favorite reception shots...  they had a Square Dance caller!  What a great idea for getting everyone involved.  Loved it.

And....  the "get-a-way..." which consisted of being pushed down the hill by the crowd when the car wouldn't start in the uber-cold weather.  Gah, what a send off!!  it was perfect!

Sara and Jake (and your families)  thank you, thank you, thank you for having me...  its weddings like yours that helps me keep huge amounts of passion for my job season after season. xoxo  -j

{Anna & Garrett Sneak Peek}

I promised Anna and Garrett and little sneak peek before I left town on Wednesday, but just like EVERY other time I go out of town, I didn't manage to quite finish up everything.  So, here I am from the great state of New York... I brought a harddrive with me just so I could upload a few of my favorite pics for them!  I'm going to expand this post to the full wedding blog in the next week or so, but until then, here are just a couple of my favorites. {Don't worry Anna, no crying pics yet... those'll come with the next round - hehe}

{erin & brad}

Soooo, I'm trying something new here with this blog post!  Ya know how I've been a HUGE slacker this summer when it comes to blogging?  Its mostly cause I'm a BUSY girl and blogging takes, well, darn near forever!!  However...  I am hoping that I have come up with a much easier, less time consuming way to give you a great wedding story.  Instead of storyboarding then uploading a picture at a time, I used photoshop to make one huge long storyboard, then I only have to upload ONE thing!!  OMG.  Why did I not think of this sooner!  The only big downfall is that I'm not going to be able to give my commentary in between pics... so I'll have to just tell the story at the beginning and let you guys sort it all out yourselves.  I think perhaps this is gonna be harder for me than it is for you.  Oh, how I love giving commentary.  ;) Hopefully, if you have the time you can let me know how this works and if you like having it all in one big story... 

So... meet Erin and Brad.  You might recogize them if you've been to the website lately... they are one of the couples on the homepage slideshow.  They hired me last year JUST for an engagement session.  Lucky for me, we hit it off and they called me back and invited me to shoot their wedding too!!  I honestly think I jumped up and down when we were able to nail it down, because not only are they like, the nicest people ever, they are also BEAUTIFUL and have amazing style and taste (Erin is actually the one who got me hooked on pinterest)!! I knew their wedding would be nothing short of amazing, and I was soooo right.  Plus they had the help of a fabulous planner, Meris Gantt with The Whole Shebang.

Among my favorite things for you to look for in the pics:  The invites! Brad is an uber-talented graphic designer, so he did these himself with their silhouettes.

The BEST candy table EVER!!  I LOVE how they did 'Erin's Favorite' and 'Brad's Favorite' cookies.

The DOGGIE!!!!

Their crazy-big wedding party!!  OMG!  15 groomsmen and 10 bridesmaids!  Luckily, they were seriously the most LAID-BACK folks in the world, so they were awesome to work with! And I totally loved the guy's hats and suspenders!!

I also loved the venue!  Girls in the Tri-cities area looking for a fabulous place for a wedding... the Allendale in Kingsport is not only super lovely, but also super affordable!  I almost passed out when they told me what they rented it for!  

Anywho... on to the pics!  

Thanks SOOO much Erin and Brad!  I loved being a part of it!!  ;)
