December 16, 2013

This wedding was a bittersweet one for me.  Even though it was my last wedding of 2013 it was also the day my friend would marry the love of her life.  Jennifer + Ajene’s engagement session was one of my favorites!  They had each other laughing the whole time and not a lot changed on wedding day.  I met up with Jennifer, her mother and her best friend + MOH, Mindy at her house overlooking Johnson’s Pond.  The girls were laughing over coffee and homemade breakfast casserole when I entered the room.  Rusty, their beloved feline, oversaw the whole getting ready production and kept everyone on track. :)  Jennifer spent time in Bolivia during her time in the Peace Corps and received well wishes from her friends.  I headed over to meet up with Ajene and his family at the hotel.  I’m so glad many of Ajene’s family members were able to fly in from the Virgin Islands to celebrate this monumental day with them.  His daughter, Ysabel had a gorgeous headband that Miss Patti Cake replicated on the cake topper!  I drove over to the historic church in Downtown Salisbury to meet back up with Jennifer and her girls.  She was so anxious to see Ajene for their first look and family members peered into the courtyard from the surrounding windows and Jennifer approached her groom.  I will never get tired of a couple’s reaction to first seeing each other on their wedding day.  Never.  Just like during their esession, this couple had each other laughing and smiling.   As guests filled the pews, Jennifer + Ajene tucked away inside the church.  Afterwards, all of the guests gathered outside for a large group photo!  We all headed to the reception to get the party started!  They even had local oysters from their friend in Chincoteague during cocktail hour!  I smiled when I saw caramel corn balls from Fisher’s Popcorn as their favors- definitely a favorite of mine!  Everyone wished them farewell with a fun sparkler sendoff!  I’m so happy for you both and cannot wait to see what 2014 has in store for you!
