Erik + Jenny : Wedding


Erik and Jenny’s story started 12 years ago…12 years ago! that brought them to their wedding day. Jenny was Erik’s first love, his only love. And seeing the way Erik looked at Jenny on their wedding day, this was very evident. Erik and Jenny were surrounded by close friends and family on their wedding, ones that obviously think so much of them and their relationship, as we had several come up to us on their wedding day to share stories and their fondness of them.

Some of my favorite parts of their wedding day:

– There was some challenges with getting Jenny’s veil in her hair after several minutes of trying, she calmly and quietly said “It’s ok…everyone calm down.”

– During the ceremony Erik would just look over at Jenny and just smile. No words. Just smiles.

– They played the newlywed game at their reception but instead of using their shoes they used cutouts of their faces and…their English Bulldog!
