Jenny & Mark were married on an absolutely beautiful day for a backyard picnic wedding! Jenny put so much thought and time into planning the little details … Andy & I had a blast photographing everything. One of my favorite things included the time capsule part of the ceremony where each guest wrote a message for Jenny & Mark which the flower girls collected and put in a box for them. Another favorite part of the day was getting to take photos of Jenny & Mark on the specific bench along the riverfront where they had their first date and where Mark proposed – so awesome! Stay tuned at the end of this post for words from Jenny. Thank you to Mark & Jenny for picking us to document your special day!

Some words from Jenny:
“It was an amazing day and there were many great things which happened and we could never forget. Among them are our many friends and family because of them many things would have never happened; our flower arrangements, all of the new landscaping, the food which was served at the picnic, the cookies, our Guest Quilt, even our venue — Jenny’s parents’ home!
The thing we learned most from this experience; the assistance offered by friends and family is genuine and take them up on it!!! If it weren’t for Jenny’s old high school friend, Jen, we would have never taken our friends up on their offers!! They were rock stars and we love them for their blood, sweat and tears!!!”
