Jamie and Brian

Jamie and I have been friends since we were three years old when we started dance lessons together, so I was honored to be there beside her, almost three decades later (oh my!), to document her wedding day.

Despite a rather dire bouquet debacle (she asked for dark merlot reds and deep purples and got fire engine reds and lavenders--so I called Matt and had him stop at Whole Foods Mart, and grab some merlot roses and red-brown hypericum berries, and after minor surgery, the bouquet was saved), the entire day went off beautifully.

Jamie was super-excited yet relaxed, and while waiting outside the church to make her grand entrance, danced in the car to Madonna and Brittney Spears.

At 6'7, Brian is incredibly tall, and towered over his tiny bride. This paired with the fact that Brian is not at all into posing for the camera (they were bickering adorably in between shots--they have the funniest, cutest dynamic) made photos challenging, and I had to find creative ways of getting them both into the frame for close portraits (that or I just ordered Brian to hunch significantly :)

It was a glistening day, not too cold for January, and the snow covering made it even more charming. Jamie and Brian were just beaming all day long, even as they were running out to the car to make it to the airport on time for their evening flight, which they did make--an end to the perfect wedding day.
