John and Jessica's wedding

I have known Jessica for several years but since college have not seen her very much. I was thrilled when she contacted me with the news of her engagement and happy to do her wedding pictures.  They got married last night at the Kent Orthodox Presbyterian Church.  It was a beautiful ceremony and was clear there were lots of friends and family that were eager to celebrate their marriage.  

Because it was a night wedding we didn't have any time to do outdoor shots with natural light.  I wanted to make sure that all of their pictures did not take place in the sanctuary or reception hall, so I dragged them outside in the cold to get a little variety.  I am happy I did because I love these outdoor shots!

 They had a small cake to cut, but mostly had these handmade cupcakes for their guests.  They looked wonderful and as you can see were a big hit with the kids.  These three girls are eagerly waiting for the couple to take their first bite so they can dig in!  

 Congratulations you guys!  Enjoy your weekend away and the many more you'll share together.


  1. Congratulations to your friend : ) Love is such a wonderful thing, isn't it?

  2. Hi Piper,
    I have a quick question. A gentleman at our church puts together something like a family news bulletin and he wanted pictures and an article about Jess's wedding. I wrote the article but he is wondering if you wouldn't mind sending us a few photos without your logo for the news letter. Would you mind? :) They are great shots and we'd like to use them if you would give us permission. :)
    Thanks a bunch, my email is
