"You know
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that"

Even as I was still photographing this wedding, I KNEW it was going to be a special one.

The details were on point--soft pink gowns, lace details, navy suits, and gold glitter--but it was the bride and groom's connection with their loved ones that brought the magic. There was so much laughter and joy throughout the day--it was impossible for me to not get caught up in it myself. I photographed Amanda and her ladies as they prepared for their day while getting glammed up by Gabbi Miller of Bella Spa and Beauty. Meanwhile, my second photographer Brian Henry of Evermark Studios did an incredible job documenting Jesse and the guys as they casually finished getting ready before heading to the ceremony. My favorite series of images from the day were taken by Brian with his entire series of photos featuring the many MANY different faces of Amanda's nephew, Mitchell. I can't even handle it. Mitchell is quite used to being photographed by his mother and my friend, Becca, who is also a photographer. 

The most touching part of the day, however, was a somber moment when Amanda wanted pay her respects at her father's gravesite with her new husband and her two sisters. That moment quickly went from a moment of silence to laughter as they discovered the red geraniums that Becca had planted the week prior had lost every single one of the petals! Make sure to look for the stems in the detail shot of Amanda's bouquet and a Coors Light resting against the headstone. After they shared a beer together, we headed to the Indiana Country Club for their kick ass reception lead by DJ Digital Dave. The best part of the reception was watching Jesse and Amanda dance to "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield!

Thank you, Amanda and Jesse, for the opportunity to document your special day.
