Jena and Brandan’s Wedding Day

Jena and Brandan were back down from Boston for a beautiful wedding shared with local friends and family a couple weeks ago. Set in the Wesley UMC and the MCM Elegante Fountainview Room, lots of fun was had by everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€

We began the day early with Jena and her girls at Onstage Hair Salon in Beaumont – wahoo! Lots of great natural window light for pretty pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, she is living in Boston now, but that’s some big Texas hair if I’ve ever seen it! ๐Ÿ™‚ A few more of the pretty bridesmaids and mothers of the bride and groom:

Afterwards, we snuck outside for some romantic portraits. It was hot but the sun provided a gorgeous backdrop for the newly married couple:

Then the party started! Dancing by everyone young and old is one of the best parts of the wedding reception – it’s just fun to see everyone getting in to the celebration. Here a conga line breaks out and eventually pulls everyone into it:

When the party finally died down, Jena and Brandan had one last dance together, thanked family and friends, and escaped through an avalanche of bio-degradable confetti – good thing these were their friends and family!:
