Get ready for a TON of pictures from Brian & Jena’s Wedding Day.  Rarely do I post this many pictures from each section of a wedding day… but I just couldn’t resist!  Jena chose black, cream and orange for her wedding colors to match her San Francisco Giants themed reception.  Yes.. I did say that correct!  You just wait until you see the groom’s cake.  Absolutely blew my mind.  Wedgewood Golf Club was a perfect venue for the wedding and the ceremony location couldn’t have been any more gorgeous.

A little shout out to all these AWESOME vendors who made Jena & Brian’s day possible.

Special thanks to Miranda & Holly for helping me shoot this wedding! They flew all the way from Oklahoma City and I couldn’t have done it without you guys!

On with the photos starting off with Jena’s gorgeous dress.

Danielle did an incredible job on Jena’s makeup!
The boys getting ready.
One of my favs of Brian. 
OK.. so here is where I get a little click happy.  I just love this sequence of putting on her dress & finishing touches. 
Eeekk… 
The bridesmaids were getting a little choked up as everything was coming together. So sweet. 
Gorgeous earrings.  Love this shot thanks to my rockin’ 100mm macro lens.
All ready to see her man! 
And now it’s really sinking in!!!  Such a precious photo.
Jena was one of those brides who was on the fence about them seeing each other prior to the ceremony for what we photogs call a “First Look”.  I gently persuaded her that it would be a GREAT idea and would allow us to get all those pretty bride/groom pictures that I’ve posted the last 2 days.

WELL… You tell me by these photos if it was a good decision or not!

OH.MY.GOODNESS.  This is why I am a photographer right here.  Sweetest moment ever. 
And here’s a series of those first few moments with his bride. 
We then proceeded to take some rocking bride/groom shots.  If you haven’t seen them check them out here or here.

Gorgeous bridesmaids.  Doesn’t all their hair & makeup look awesome?

I had to get a shot under that gorgeous willow tree. 
Few little bridal party details…
Groomsmen.  Such a fun bunch of fellas. 
Who wouldn’t LOVE to get married at this venue.  Perfect.
Brian is absolutely priceless in this next picture.
Maybe it’s because I’m used to shooting in dark churches in Arkansas… but this kind of light at a ceremony is few an far between.
First kiss as husband & wife.  
I don’t normally post “formal shots”, but wanted to show you how gorgeous they were! Ha!
Mama & her baby girl.
Fun bridal party just before we headed into the reception.
I bet you’ve never seen a Giants themed reception!  They are huge giants fans and I loved all the orange detail they added into everything

Super cute name cards on the right. 

Beautiful cupcake cake by Old Town Danville Bakery. 
Reception. 
Check out his grooms cake!  Is this not one impressive piece of flour, sugar, eggs & milk?  For all of you Arkansas goers out there… this is a mini version of the World Series Champions San Francisco Giants Stadium.
This cake deserves it’s only special detail collage.  They had custom made bobble heads that really did look like Brian & Jena.  Impressive. 
First Dance!  Love this moment. 
Brian stealing a kiss during the toasts. 
And now I’m going to “collage” the rest….
Love this series.  Follow the guy on the left in the red tie.  Well deserved diving garter catch. 
They then danced the night away!  What an absolutely fun day to be a part of.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Larsen!  Hope you enjoy these photos for the rest of your lives!
