amy + jace – a wedding!

This past weekend I had the distinct pleasure of assisting Alan Honey as he shot Amy and Jace’s wedding out at a wonderful little country church. Even though Alan got the majority of the images, he turned me loose to go see what I could find along the way!

It was so much fun working with Amy and Jace–they are really two of the most fun people. They had arranged to see each other before the wedding, so we made Jace wait. I think he actually managed not to peek!

Amy and Jace were so laid back as everything was made ready for the ceremony. They had time to stop and talk to all their family and friends that turned out to help make everything perfect.


Their little ring bearer, on the other hand, needed a whole lot of comfort and encouragement before he felt up to it.

Finally, it was time.

All of their friends and family threw wheat grains as they left the church. The sun was in the perfect position to just make those little grains glow!

After they drove off, and everyone headed off to the reception, Alan and I sat down and took a breather. I was a bit confused–shouldn’t we be heading off to the reception? Alan said that he told the bride and groom to drive around the block, make out for 5 minutes, and then come back so we could shoot a few more portraits to take advantage of the amazing golden sunset light.

Boy, did we ever.

At the reception: the first taste of sweetness as a new couple.

As it turns out, it was also Amy’s sister’s birthday, so there was plenty to celebrate!

happy birthday sis!

Thanks a ton for letting me be a part of your (almost)* perfect day!
