Jenny and Ryan will forever have a special place in my heart! I can honestly say that of all of the couples I have ever photographed, Jenny wins the award for being the most joyful and having the most contagious laugh. There wasn't a moment during the day that she wasn't giggling or just beaming with excitement.
Jenny and Ryan are high school sweethearts that live in Florida and chose their intimate destination wedding to be held at West Milford Farm. West Milford is home to a gorgeous greenhouse which is the main focal point of the venue and is the perfect backdrop for portraits.
Since they traveled long-distance for their wedding, the first time I actually met them both was the morning of their wedding. When I first walked in, Jenny was finishing up her makeup and beginning to have her hair curled and braided. She was smiling staring down at her phone texting Ryan. That smile never left her face for the entire 8 hours I was there! Her beautiful Lillian West gown had the most elegant lace detail and buttons down the back. Chad with West Milford put together some INCREDIBLE florals and probably the largest bridal bouquet I have ever seen filled with the brightest colors that really popped. Every detail- although planned from far away came together beautifully.
Jenny shared an intimate first look with her Father moments before walking down the aisle and met eye to eye with Ryan at the foot of the arbor draped in those same bright and beautiful florals.
After sharing their vows and their first kiss as Mr. and Mrs. Miller, I stole them away for some portraits which consisted of a lot of giggles and sighs of relief. After all of these years, you could see the joy and relief on their faces that they were finally each other forever and that everything went smoothly.
Their entire wedding day was so relaxed and a clear celebration of their relationship, their families, and their friends.
