Jenny & Chris. Reno Nevada Wedding.

It was a bitterly cold morning. The kind of cold that seems to settle inside your bones but also the kind of cold that makes the snow on the ground shine like glitter & makes the world seem like a fairy tale. Inside a small room at Our Lady of the Snows, Jenny & her bridesmaids huddled together in a circle for a prayer. Almost moments later, Jenny was being walked down the aisle with her sweet father in her stunning gown. And that evening at the reception, Chris told everyone there that he knew it from the first time he met Jenny that they would end up together. When he met Jenny for the first time, he realized how beautiful, funny, positive & friendly she was & he knew that those attributes were ones that he wanted in his wife. And he was right. That beautiful, funny & positive girl fell head over heels for Chris-the kind, sincere & wonderful guy. Together they make one amazing couple who love to simply be together. Their wedding was a beautiful, wintery wedding that warmed everyone’s hearts despite the freezing cold outside!

Crystal draped Manzanita trees graced every table at the reception, white wreaths made with white flowers adorned the tables & everywhere you looked you felt like you were in a beautiful, elegant winter wonderland. Their reception was filled with amazing dancing, heartfelt toasts & the best wedding cake this side of the Mississippi. They had a HUGE bridal party (21 members!!)-I had a fun time taking photos of them with the bridal party after the ceremony (although we were sooooo cold!) All in all, it was a beautiful, wonderful wedding day!

Jenny & Chris-thank you so much for choosing me to capture your beautiful day! You are a darling, fun couple who I know will be holding hands & laughing alongside each other for decades to come. Wishing you lots & lots of love together! XOXO, marielle.

As a fellow rhinestone/feather lover, I almost died when I saw Jenny’s amazing shoes!!!

THIS is the face of a girl who is EXCITED to get married!

A prayer with her bridesmaids before Jenny walked down the aisle…

Jenny-you are a stunner!

Their bridal party was soooo much fun!

I love how their bridal party stood behind them for their sweet first dance…
