It seems like I just found out these two sweet people were engaged, and yesterday I had the honor of capturing their wedding day. It is always really special to get to capture these precious memories for my couples, but there is a whole new layer of sentimentality when you’ve known the groom their whole life (it also makes you feel really old 😛 ).
Dylan first asked Jeanie out on 11-28-2016 and he proposed almost exactly two years later on 12-28-18. So it was super perfect that they chose 1-28-2020 for their wedding date. Dylan and Jeanie are so great together and I am so ecstatic that they’ve finally tied the knot!
The weather yesterday for the wedding was a bit unexpected, but honestly it couldn’t have worked out any better. We’ve been enjoying 50 and 60 degree days for most of the month, but Tuesday we experienced a sudden drop into the freezing temps, with rain…and then snow. Due to the timing of the wedding, and the weather combined I knew that meant there wouldn’t be a chance for any natural light outdoor portraits (which is definitely my area of specialty), and I was really hoping they wouldn’t be too disappointed. Far from it. Jeanie has always dreamed of a white wedding day. She recently lost her grandmother who raised her, and she commented to Dylan’s mom that Grandma was sending her snow for her wedding day.
Dylan and Jeanie, I hope you always remember to keep God at the center of your marriage. Hold tight to each other with all that life brings you, and when trials come remember how you felt on the day you took each other as husband and wife. I can’t wait to see the next stage of your adventure together!
Side note, Dylan and Jeanie with the help of Dylan’s mom and a whole host of other family members and friends threw their entire wedding, and they did such a good job! Their centerpieces and cake were too cute!
