Jen & Matt. Wedding.

It’s crazy how life brings people together. Some people meet on a subway…some meet in school…and some people meet while in the Air Force. This is Matt & Jen’s story. Matt & Jen both grew up in California, no more than two hours from each other. Yet it wasn’t until their Basic Training for the Air Force that they met-not in California-but all the way in San Antonio, Texas. Amidst all their surroundings, they quickly noticed each other, but it wasn’t until after graduation that they began to spend time together. It didn’t take long after that for them to realize that they wanted to be together for a very, very, very long time. Once they knew that they were meant to be together, things quickly fell into place & they were married in a small civil ceremony in Omaha. During the past year, Matt has been deployed twice while Jen anxiously waited for his return. She has been counting down the days for two things-Matt’s safe return & their fabulous wedding celebration! This year, they wanted to have a big, fabulous wedding…to surround themselves with all the people in their lives who they love & to have the party of the year! Their wedding was a fabulous, perfect day & I was so, so happy to have been able to document everything!

They were married at a family friend’s gorgeous home-complete with a fabulous barn & miles & miles of farmland. I was in heaven! I loved the intimate feel of their wedding & I loved each & every detail- the fabulous flowers, Jen’s silver shoes, their outdoor reception under the stars…everything was beautiful. As the autumn sun set, friends & family members toasted to Matt & Jen’s love for each other. They danced the night away under the palm trees & had a fabulous, fabulous time!

Matt & Jen-thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your special day! I loved being able to see everything come together & to see how happy you both are! I hope you are enjoying every minute of your Hawaiian honeymoon! xoxo, marielle.

The view from the home where they were married…beautiful…

Silver shoes? Yes, yes & yes.

I’m positive this goes without saying, but Jen was such a gorgeous bride!

I LOVED this bridal party! They were all so sweet & wonderful! And their bridesmaids dresses??-to.die.for.

They had their wedding at a private residence & I loooooooved the location…

Definitely my favorite from their day!

  1. Seriously LOVE these! Another Fabulous job. My Favorite is with her Father walking down the isle.

  2. I am in love with the first picture of the bride and her bridesmaids. But, as random as it is, I was completely taken back by the photo of the vase of flowers with the twinkling lights in the background. It totally embodies an idyllic reception memory.
