Jessica + Jared

I have to admit that this blog post is a couple days overdue, but that's because I have been agonizing over which images to post. There were so many wonderful moments and incredible details at Jessica and Jared's wedding that I had a hard time selecting images for the blog. Jess and Jared are such wonderful and genuine people, and as Ken and I have gotten to know them during the course of their wedding planning, those two never cease to amaze us with their kind hearts.

Jess and Jared got ready in separate rooms at the Hampton Inn located in Anderson. I snagged Jessica's dress for a quick shot in the hallway as Ken kept watch so that Jared wouldn't sneak a peek.

Their hotel room had fabulous light! Jess, you are so gorgeous.

I loved their rings.

Gorgeous shoes.

Toles Flowers in Anderson provided all the floral arrangements and they did a great job.

Here's Jess, waiting for her groom.

First look!

Beautiful bride.

Handsome groom.

I love this shot that Ken snagged.

This is one of my favorites from the day.

Another favorite. Really, what's not to love about this one? It would make a great canvas!

Did I mention that it rained the whole day? Yeah, they were troopers!

I love how classic this photo looks.

Hi, ladies!

Hi, fellas!

Gotta love that energy!!!

This one makes me smile.

Love, love, love!

Have I mentioned that Jess made the programs (and all the other paper goods)?

The wedding ceremony was held at Shadyside Terrace Gardens in Anderson and, even though it was raining, everything was beautiful.

One of my favorite moments of the day, captured by the amazing Ken.

The new Mr. and Mrs!

Yes, I do traditional family photos. This one is for you, Jerry and Paula.

Jess with her sister, Hannah. What beauties.

Jess and Jared had an enormous candy buffet at their reception. Here are just a few of the goods. Isn't the packaging lovely?

There was a chocolate fountain with rice crispy treats, marshmellows, pastries, strawberries, and more. Yum!

And they had milk to wash it all down. Genius!

The Flying Cupcake in Indianapolis did an amazing job with the cupcakes. Ken and I cannot say enough good things about their delicious cupcakes. Go stop by their store and grab one. You will not be disappointed!

Ken's favorite -- coconut.

First dance. He is so into her.

This wedding would not have been possible without the amazing Cassie and Deborah of A Touch of Elegance. They ensured that every detail was just perfect and that the day ran smoothly and according to plan. Ken and I highly recommend Cassie and Deborah for all your wedding coordinating needs. Cassie and Deborah, Ken and I thank you for making our job easier!

Jess and Jared, Ken and I cannot say enough good things about you guys. You are wonderful people, full of love of laughter, and we are looking forward to photographing you and your family for years to come.
