Madi and I first chatted back in September of 2020 and when she told me they were getting married at Jerris Wadsworth Wedding Barn I was elated! I love everything about Jerris and knew that they would have amazing scenery for their wedding portraits an delicious catering from Colby’s Catering!
When I first arrived on their wedding day, I found Madi upstairs in the bridal suite getting her hair done. My assistant photographer and I took some getting ready photos and then together carried Madi’s dress down to the ceremony doors outside for a little portrait session! When we returned Madi was getting her makeup done and I continued to stay with her as Dan went to go find Austin and the groomsmen.
When the ceremony started, it was amazing to finally watch Austin’s reaction as his bride walked down the aisle towards him. She had a confident smile on her face and her Dad was beaming proud. Her beautiful bouquet, the boutonnieres and the wedding arch floral arrangements were done by the very talented Avon Floral World. Their ceremony was about 20 minutes and they had a beautiful sand ceremony before Austin was allowed to kiss his bride. It was perfection!
At the end of family formals, it started to pour so we all went inside for announcing the bridal party and into Austin and Madi’s first dance as husband and wife. As soon as the rain cleared we ran back out for some portraits of just the two of them before another rain storm came rolling in! We had maybe 5 minutes before it started to rain again and because Dan and I have been trained to work under time constraints on wedding days it proved especially helpful on this day; we were able to get a good amount of images for their gallery in that short time!
We moved on to dinner, then dancing and there was one more break in the clouds that we took advantage of to sneak the rest of the bridal party outside for some quick bridal party photos. After that it was so fun to watch Madi, Austin and the rest of their wedding guests dance it up for the rest of the evening. It was an amazing day for them and I couldn’t be more humble to have been chosen to capture their day! Here are a few of my favorite images from their gallery!
