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:

Hair and makeup done, we move on to the church to continue preparations. Brandan and his groomsmen are ready:

Do you think Brandan got the feeling people were watching him?

I *told* you it was a beautiful ceremony!

Woot! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

On to the reception at the Elegante! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here Jena gets a hug from her dad following their father/ daughter dance:

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!:

Awww! One last portrait of the newlyweds before they leave on their honeymoon in their limo:

Great day with a great, fun couple. ๐Ÿ™‚ There were just too many awesome moments to post them all above, here are some more of my favorites from the day:

Hey expression the first time she sees him when she is walking down the isle is marvelous. Her expression of excitement is well captured. Also love the picture of all the bridesmaids/moms getting ready, very cute. Thanks for sharing, great post!
