Janelle & Joel: Wedding

Janelle & Joel were married about a week and a half ago. It was a beautiful wedding. It is really weird to see your friends starting to get married, but that's what made this one so much fun to be a part of. Janelle and Joel are two of those people who just belong together and you instantly see that when you look at them. 

The girls started getting ready at the church. I was in need of a second shooter so Mary H accompanied me for the day, and she did a great job! You wouldn't know it was her first time second shooting. We met the girls at the church, and the weather was perfect. 


One of Mary's shots:

Julie did a fabulous job on the flowers, as always:

Another shot of mary's, she killed it on the details:

Lauretta K and Kelly D did everyone's hair:


With each of the gifts for her bridesmaids, Janelle gave a cute wooden sign that she made HERSELF! 

Off we went to meet up with Joel for the first look

The fun part about having a second shooter is having both angles for the first looks. Mary got a lot of nice shots from her side so its always fun to see it from the other perspective.

I was especially happy she snagged this one of Joel grinning as his bride walked up behind him:

As I was weeding through Mary's pictures, I came across this one, which turned out to be one of my favorites because it describes these two perfectly- they both make each other laugh, and their laughs are contagious :)

This was my "awkward" bridal party. They will get the joke.

Jamie did the cake and it turned out beautifully (Ultimate Fake Cakes)


Congratulations, Joel & Janelle! I wish you both nothing but the best as you begin this new adventure together as Mr. & Mrs. Larson.
