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!
We then headed to a church in Norwood for the ceremony. Jill smiled the whole way down the aisle. She looked radiant! I am so glad I quickly snapped the last photo (above) of Jill and Jeff after the ceremony because it ended up being the only photo I got of the two of them in the sun! When we met back up at The Warren Conference Center for portraits of Jill & Jeff, and formals of the groups, it was raining the most intense rain I’ve seen in a long time. It was the kind of rain that soaks you through if you are outside for even a second. Needless to say we didn’t want to take the wedding party out for a bunch of shots in the rain, so Shawn and I quickly set up a shot of everybody in the lodge where the wedding party was staying. I am so happy we were able to make it work, and I’m actually super happy with how the shot turned out!
After we finished up the family formals, the rain let up slightly, so we decided to go out for some photos with Jill & Jeff. They braved the rain armed with smiles, umbrellas and a golf cart that magically appeared to take us to the safe cover of a gazebo.
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.
I’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.
Once dinner was over, the dancing erupted! This was a crazy crowd (featuring past couple Jaime and Jesse! yay!), and Jill & Jeff were on the dance floor enjoying themselves the whole time!Congrats Jill & Jeff! Thanks for being so happy and upbeat in the rain!
