Courtney and I were SO happy to be a part of Jennifer and David’s wedding. Jennifer is in hotel management and David is a musician and plays with the band Thomas Wynn and the Believers. We hit it off right away and had a great time photographing their engagement session (see it here.) Their DIY wedding was fun and easy. Lots of friends and family and a liquid nitrogen handcrafted gourmet ice cream station! So what more would you need!? Thank you Jennifer and David for including us! Congratulations to your new family xo.

Describe your wedding planning process. Doing it ourselves was stressful at times but fulfilling after everything was over
What advice would you give to future brides for their wedding day? Hire a coordinator…just kidding, We made a point to stay at each other’s sides the whole night and not get separated and we are glad we did.
Anything you would have done differently? No
Most memorable moment during the planning process Buying Jen’s wedding dress because it made it feel real
What are you most looking forward to as a married couple? Growing old together
Which moment are you the most excited to see in photos? For Jen it is seeing my face as she walked down the aisle, for me it is our photoshoot after the ceremony
What was your wedding inspiration? We didn’t want an overbearing theme that would dictate what people could or couldn’t wear. We tried to keep things simple and lightly refined because of that. It was important to us that our guests were comfortable and felt free to celebrate with us
Describe some of your favorite wedding details and how you came up with them Jen had the idea for using our childhood photos for the centerpieces and they turned out great. We really just winged it on the details and made it all work, and we’re glad that it did, like the flowers for the head table or the framed lace for the alter. We just found ideas that we thought we could execute and tried our best.
