If you were to Google “the sweetest bride in the history of the world”… there will be a photo of Jenn. Well, not yet… but there will be after the Google spiders find this claim here on our little blog next to a photo of her 🙂 You’re welcome Jenn 😀Not only are you incredibly sweet… you’re gorgeous, too 🙂 Absolutely positively GORGEOUS!This photo is SO Jenn! See her maid of honor in the background? She’s the one directly to her left… the one with her lips puckered… I think she’s doing her best “Jennifer working it out for the camera” impression. 😀 THIS is the DEFINITION of “smiling with your eyes” OHHH JENNIFER! You’d make Tyra SO proud! 😀 Meanwhile… one of Christian’s groomsmen was watching YouTube videos on how to tie a bowtie on his phone. 🙂I’m quite impressed! Helloooooo hot tamale groomsmen! My hilarious jokes never fail! 😉BOOOOOOM!On our way to the reception 🙂 Really proud of this one folks. My favorite ❗The ceremony ran a bit long so we were a bit limited on time for photos of the bride and groom. 🙂 Luckily I’m a photo-taking magician! 😀 I’m also quite humble… 😉I flipping ADORED this wedding party! Most of you aren’t married yet so let this be our formal request for the position of wedding photographer for your future weddings. k? k. 😀For the introductions Jenn and Christian requested a “Project Runway” type screen so that they, joined by their wedding party, could do their choreographed introduction dance silhouette style. And it was awesome!Late night snacks for your guests? DO IT!High fives to marriage!!!! Mike’s favorite ❓

This is what it looks like when your wedding photographer casts a spell on your wedding party. I mean, just in case you were wondering. In all seriousness… what the hell am I doing here?!Those creases in my pants could have made even an Army drill sergeant proud! SLICE!!! 😉…and sometimes… I dance with the bride. This was one of those times 😀
