It’s easy to fall into a mid season slump when you’ve had a crazy busy wedding season like I have…to to become only mildly obsessive about weddings rather than my previous self as a full fledged David Tutera groupie! ;) But this August, just as I felt myself starting to phase into auto-pilot I was jolted by Jena and Andrew’s wedding!! I knew after shooting their engagement session, meeting with them and Jena’s adorable mom Lil (and her fabulous wedding binder) that they would have an amazing wedding. But the sheer abundance of laughter, love, attention to detail, family and Fireball made it truly an epic event!! I had a tough time narrowing down the images I loved from this wedding (shot my both myself and my second shooter Sara Stark) but I managed! Well kinda…there’s a lot! Here are some of my favs from Jena and Andrew’s beautiful day…enjoy!

Apparently Italian tradition dictates for candy and money to be tossed at the bride and groom during their first dance! Top center image by Sara Stark.
Italian tradition also encourages all the guests to participate in the Italian March. IT WAS AWESOME! Center image by Sara Stark.
I love this image Sara captured of Grandpa getting a group hug as he left!
