Megan & James' Wedding at the Marian House

The Marian House Wedding

I had such a great time with Megan and James on a perfect fall day. They gave us plenty of time for photography and we ended up at this wonderful little park I had never been to that had so many great little out of the way spots for photography. A big thanks to Chris Rocco for shooting with me, some of his images are mixed in. Congratulations Megan and James and thanks for telling us a little bit more about your wedding below.

I really wasn't nervous at all. I was just anxious to see how everything we worked so hard to plan was going to come together. - Megan

Other than my matron of honor, the rest of my bridesmaids were all little girls. It was so adorable to see them getting their hair and makeup done and their genuine excitement about getting to take part in the day's events. - Megan

Our first look was perfect. Ray set it up for us just how we had imagined. Even though I had seen James in his suit before, he looked even more handsome to me than ever in that special moment. - Megan

She looked so beautiful that I couldn't even find the right words to say. I was just speechless. - James

It was definitely nice because we had a lot of people along for the photos we took at the park and to be able to step away from them and share a private moment together was really special. - Megan

You only get one first look so it was nice to be able to really be in the moment without the distraction of everyone else that was nearby for pictures. - James

I had a blast with the wedding party. The kids were so adorable and having such a great time that you couldn't help but smile. Our best man and matron of honor are both pretty shy and even they seemed to open up and have a great time. - Megan

Ray lead us out to an open area of the park and then left us alone while he went pretty far away to a higher vantage point. He took the most amazing photos of us and I was just blown away. - Megan

James and I are a pretty private couple so getting married in front of 100 people was definitely nerve-wracking. It just seemed very surreal that the moment we had been planning 16 months for had finally arrived. - Megan

I waited my whole life for this moment and it's finally here. I went from taking in all of our friends and family to solely focusing on my bride. From that moment on, all I saw was her. - James

We're not particularly good dancers, so we were both pretty nervous. After a while, we just blocked everyone out and we were really able to enjoy the moment. - Megan

I was pretty nervous so I just tried to focus on Megan and block out everything else. - James

I got lifted up on a chair and paraded around the dance floor by some friends and family members. That was pretty awesome. - James

I LOVED dancing with the bridal party kids. They were having so much fun and their energy was infectious. - Megan

We did a night photo and it was definitely worth it. It gave us a chance to get some fresh and relax for a few minutes away from the crowd. Ray worked quickly so we barely missed a thing. - Megan

Working with Ray was wonderful. He makes you feel very comfortable and the poses he put us in were very natural. I'm confident every moment of our wedding was captured beautifully. - Megan
