Jordan + Jason

I admit I am slightly partial to Jordan since she is my cousin, but family or not, she is a gem! She is one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet! Jason is crazy over her, and it shows.
The Wedding took place at Jason’s family home. The property is STUNNING! The landscape reminded me of something you’d see in the French countryside; so eloquent and quaint.
If you are a Bride or ever have been you know what importance it is to have your mom on your wedding day. Jordan may not have had her mom at her wedding but she had an entire army of moms behind her. She had her older sister who did everything she could to make her day perfect. Jamie Lynn has always been so good at being a big sister and a role model. Jordan had her aunt who not only made Jordan’s day perfect but she also made sure her sister Jamie Lynn’s wedding was perfect. Miranda always steps in when needed. She had her best friend’s mom who has been there for her, her entire life. Jordan had her future husbands Mother, who just smiled at her the entire day. You can see how smitten she was about her new daughter in law. Her dad’s wife was so gracious to tend to any need Jordan had throughout the planning of the wedding day. (there were many more, but this is to name just a few<3) This day was filled with such sweet emotion.
Jordan is always calm as a cucumber, quite literally. On her wedding day, she was the same serene sweet soul as she always is. You could see the happiness on her face the entire day.
Jason was a ball of nerves. During their first look, I told him that she had just stepped out of the car. I  joked for him not to peek! As soon as I looked up I could see him holding back his tears, and he hadn’t even looked upon her yet. As soon as he turned and opened his eyes you could see the tears glistening down his cheeks. He, admittedly ran to her, he couldn’t get ahold of her fast enough. He continued to hug her and repeatedly told her how beautiful she was!
Their portraits were extraordinary; they were full of emotion and joy. Jason did not take his eyes off of her the entire day! I caught him whispering how beautiful his soon to be bride was.
It was incredibly hot, but the entire wedding party was so accommodating to the Bride and Groom the entire day. I was able to capture there first look, portraits, and group photos in less than an hour!
This wedding brought me so much joy. I am so thankful I was able to be a part of such a special day!
