Hey Interwebs, I’d like to introduce you to my dear friend and one of my favorite brides in the whole wide world, Jessica. 🙂
Jess is so unbelievably special to me. I’m crying even thinking about it. No really, I am. I seriously just selfied it on the snapchat. Right when Megan and I showed up that morning to shoot the “getting ready” (she already knew about my ummm… “situation” because I photographed her engagement session ummm… Mike-less)… she started crying! Her mom exclaimed, “That’s the first time she’s cried today!”
Jess replied, “It’s real now, Bobbi is here.” I’ve had that happen a handful of times in my past (which is so unbelievably humbling!)… but back then it was when I was still, ahemmm…. yeah, that… so for her to still be so excited… downright emotional… knowing that she wasn’t getting exaaaactly what she thought she’d signed up for… well, DAMN it filled up my love tank big time!
Ohhhh Jess, you’re one in a million! Thank you for being you. 🙂
On the right that’s Chris’ identical twin brother Brian. Confession: I’m kiiiiind of obsessed with identical twins. 😉
First look. Jess’ parent’s home. It was raining. She didn’t care. I love brides like this. 😀 I mean, love!
…..and it was perrrrrfect!
This wedding party was the definition of fun. 😀
The ceremony was originally planned to be outdoors. However, it was unseasonably cold so they moved it indoors.
My signature move: sneaking up behind the wedding party during vows. It’s one of they verrrrry few benefits of being short… I am much less noticeable hiding behind people. Hey, I’ll take what I can get!
HIIIII JENNNN! So this incredible woman (also one of the maid of honors) had just unexpectedly given premature birth to TWINNNNNS a few days before the wedding! WHAAAAT?! Mmm hmmm… she was even still wearing her two hospital bracelets.
I’m fascinated by families and genetics. From left to right. Chris’ maternal grandmother, mom, nephew and dad. Notice they’re all making the exact same expression?! But dad?! DAD? DAAAAD!!!?!?! Dad, you melt me.
Right after “kiss the bride,” they thanked their friend who officiated.
The best men’s toast. 🙂
The bride’s parents on the left. WE JUST ADORED YOU TWO!!!!! Jeri (mom) told me their love story, and if you ever get to meet her, you must ask her about it! It’s a Notebook kinda story! Anyway… they, along with their entire family, were so incredibly kind to Megan and I. We can’t thank you all enough for being so perfectly you. 😀
Soon after the party dancing started, the groomsmen headed out for a cigar. I was inside shooting and Megan followed them out. When she came back in and showed me the back of her camera I about flipppppped OUT! SHE SOOOO NAAAAAILED THISSSSS!!!!!! Here’s the groom with his two brothers. 🙂
Behind the scenes
MEGANNNNN’S FAAAACE!!!! HAHAHAHAHAAA!

Much love friends,
