Jessica and Jerrod :: Married! May 23, 2009

I started the photo planning phase with Jessica and Jerrod over a year before the big day. Every last thing was perfect... we scouted the Paine Art Center and Jessica fell in love with the tulips and various blooms that appeared there in the spring. When spring 2009 rolled around we were praying that the tulips and crab apple blossoms would hold on until the 23rd of May... we were lucky! Many of the blooms were gorgeous and ready for photos.

Minutes before the processional rain drops began to fall... Even in the somewhat wet weather their outdoor ceremony at the Paine Art Center in Oshkosh was beautiful and romantic! I loved editing through the shots and seeing the best man hovering over the couple with a large black umbrella. In many of the ceremony shots below you can actually see the rain drops!

After the ceremony all the guests gathered in the front lawn of the mansion for a big group photo. I love the way this image captures everyone in attendance, luckily there was just a mist in the air at this time so we didn't need our umbrellas!

We had special access to certain areas inside the museum. Some of the shots we took inside the mansion are my favorite of the day. Especially the image of Jessica sitting in the grand staircase. Thank you to the staff at the Paine for escorting us around the property and for helping out so much!

This is a candid shot of Jessica's mother and aunt bustling her dress. I saw this with my eyes and almost fell over! It was the most gorgeous light and the most awesome moment!!!

Here are the rest of my favorites from the day! Enjoy!

The Bride's room at the Carriage House at the Paine...

The most darling 18 month old twins! My duty all day was to photograph them in the same shot... it was a fun challenge!

I just love the expression on Jerrod's face here! This was the biggest smile of the day!!!
