Happy Friday! We have the first of two Homestead weddings for you today. The first is an incredibly sweet couple, Sarah & Jason, who enjoyed a quiet first sight with each other before doing their portraits. There was a brief rain delay due to a passing cloud, but it dampened nary a spirit, and we all ended up celebrating outside after a few minutes. Have fun perusing our favorite moments from the day below, then see their complete gallery here. The password, Sarah’s maiden name, is case-sensitive. Have a great weekend!

Venue and catering: The Homestead

Just a wee bit of rain showers before the main event. No one was in a hurry with such views.

Love, love, love the unicorn head on Rick, the bandleader, after the evening’s festivities had officially ended. There was still more partying to enjoy, of course.

Our wonderful assistant Karen was also shooting a we bit that day and came up with these rockin’ shots:

Notice how adept Jason is at not only dipping his new bride, but holding his Corona at just the right angle to avoid spillage? Masterful.

Dear s&j,

Some of our favorite moments from your wedding day include:
Sarah, it seemed your dad and Jason coordinated their thoughts and actions when your dad tripped up a bit over your vail, then when Jason did the same thing as you two walked up to the tower immediately after your ceremony. The way, with champagne in hand, you were completely unperturbed by the rainfall just before your ceremony. Your first dance! That was some serious energy and fun there, with many surprises for your guests. The stories your siblings shared about the two of you over the years were uproariously funny and at times very poignant. Wee ones dancing together, with the occasional stolen kiss (or at least attempted). A capella, Sarah. And that’s all we’re going to say about that. 😉

xoxo…
