JAKE & GLORIA

I had the opportunity and privilege of photographing a very special wedding fourth of July weekend this year. My sister and her husband's best friends, Jake & Gloria, whom have grown a big part of our own family through the past years.  It was special because my family was there to celebrate their love together with them.  And although I was most definitely celebrating their love with them, I got to do it from the sidelines and witness what truly is a beautiful beginning. 

Their theme was #OneLoveWedFest, a combination of their love for each other and their excitement for music. A theme that carried out through the details from the beginning of the day until the very last song played on the dance floor.  The tables were decorated with musicians and records, the food truck served amazing food and the dance floor was filled with glow sticks and rave music. There wasn't one thing that didn't scream music festival.  They even had a medical tent stocked full of wedding day (or music festival day) essentials!  We were blessed by mother nature with amazing weather and a multitude of different fiery sunsets and opportunities to pause and soak in the beauty of the entire day.

I am so lucky I got to witness their beginning and look forward to being a part of their love from the sidelines years to come! I urge you to throw a vinyl on your record player, sit back with a bottle of home brew (did I mention they made the beer?) and enjoy a glimpse into their music festival wedding day!
