Jen & Steve: MARRIED!

Jen & I originally met at when we began working together at McCormick & Schmick's almost 4 years ago now and have a had a great time together each and every shift. From our contagious laughter at work to her nickname of Kipperdoodle for me, we've had literally years of memories together walking around a restaurant looking like a bunch of ice cream salesman. Nonetheless, through all of that, Jen still insisted I shoot her wedding. Why? I have no idea. I thought by now she would know about all of my antics all too well. :-)

Well, with a moment of desperation, Jen asked me to be at her wedding and I was more than happy to oblige. A winter wedding in downtown Lynchburg, VA with a little snowfall to boot, made for a wonderful and beautiful wedding. And an amazing hotel, The Craddock Terry Hotel. A former shoe factory, turned luxury hotel. What was once a turn-of-the-century shoe factory is now a residential-style boutique hotel blending the urban architecture of two landmark brick warehouses with the fashionable styling of a modern hotel. Paying homage to its origins, the d├ęcor is accented with historical artifacts from the heyday of the Craddock-Terry Shoe Corporation, and guests enjoy shoe-themed amenities including complimentary shoeshine service. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend. I would also recommend stopping by Jen's parent's home too for some oysters and a few drinks. They Southern and their I really think their middle name is hospitality. I only wish I didn't have to leave right after the reception. Have fun on the honeymoon you two!

Jen had this gorgeous dress and a beautiful reception in her parent's home.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G...
Jen got dressed in a nursery.

Check out this bunch of Hooligans!

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful.

Nothing like an old church.

They may be holding it together here, but you should have seen them at the rehearsal dinner.
The tears were flowing like Niagara Falls. :)

Red Velet Cake...umm...delicious!!!

I don't think I need to even caption this one. It speaks for itself.

And if you were wondering, yes, it was official.
(Though this may only be a souvenir.)

  2. The church shots & details are awesome, nice work!
