Warren Conference Center WeddingJill & Jeff

Jill & Jeff got married a couple weekends ago on the rainiest day of the year!  Luckily Jill & Jeff are awesome and amazing and didn’t let the rain get them down!

I started the day off at Jill’s parents’ house in Norwood to photograph Jill and the bridesmaids getting ready.  How much do you love Jill’s shirt?  “Dude I’m getting married!”  That’s definitely how I felt on my wedding day!

I totally love that last photo because it is clear that the umbrella isn’t really helping, but Jill & Jeff are still both having fun!   We headed to the barn from the gazebo since it was where Jill most wanted to take photos.  I love how the rain is shining on the barn, and how quiet the photos are with just Jill & Jeff.  To me these photos represent the calm after the storm.

Bride and Groom in the RainI’m not sure there’s anything more romantic than a husband holding an umbrella over his new wife.  The reception began with Jill & Jeff’s first dance, toasts, and then dinner.
