I’d like to photograph Jessica & Daniel’s wedding over and over: for its simple joy, for its delicate beauty, for its natural setting, for its relaxed intimacy. As I’ve said before, I love a big, fancy wedding; but there’s something about a small affair that touches my soul. Perhaps it’s the lack of distraction. With no elaborate decor or extensive vendor list, your full attention can rest with the person you are about to marry.
Jessica & Daniel got ready together, in their home.
Friends and family arrived at the house early, and relaxed together before the ceremony.
Outside for a few quiet portraits before the ceremony…
The ketubah signing.
Because they celebrated with such an intimate group of friends and family, all of Jessica and Daniel’s guests were able to sign their ketubah.
A few last-minute tears and words of wisdom from their rabbi before the ceremony.
Everyone walked out of the house and down the road to the lake for Jessica and Daniel to be married.
Jessica & Daniel had their first dance lakeside, under their chuppah, immediately following their ceremony.
Everyone at the wedding:
Jessica, Daniel, and Daniel’s daughter:
Jessica’s sister and her partner, and Daniel’s brother and his wife:
Everyone gathered at Cafe Lily in Decatur for dinner…
