Chris and Michelle had a beautiful wedding during COVID 19. And it may not have happened how they had originally envisioned. There were many fewer guests in attendance. In fact, these guys exchanged vows surrounded by only immediate family. Also, there was a strict mask policy. But it was just as amazing as a regular wedding. There was a beautiful ceremony. Our bride was STUNNING. The portraits were incredible. An amazing cake and beautiful holiday themed decor lit up the room. And at the end of the day, they were husband and wife.
I stay out of politics. I don’t believe it has any place in wedding photography. But I’m going to go out on a limb and say how much I truly respect these guys for the decisions they made. Choosing to have a small wedding is not an easy decision. And opting for masks is not anything that people want to enforce. I have done SO many weddings where we pretended the pandemic was not happening. But to see people taking the health of those closest to them, as well as their vendors into consideration… it was refreshing. And I respect the heck out of it. I am basically at parties every weekend. Sometimes multiple times a week. So COVID is something that I have to take seriously, because I literally am in the middle of people for a living. So from all of us at Jennifer Juniper Photography, THANK YOU.
Let’s move on from the fact that it was a wedding during COVID 19. Our couple exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony at the venue’s rotunda. Then we got to move outside to one of the most amazing newlywed sessions I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. The sun set over the lake in the background. It was truly spectacular. As a Florida wedding photographer, portraits at sunset are always awesome. But this one was special.
After the dances, dinner, and cake cutting, we went out for even more pictures! Night portraits are my favorite! And then we snuck off to let our couple celebrate the night away. I’m so happy that we were able to work with such an amazing group of people again. Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.
