Water's Edge Event Center Wedding- Jill & Ethan

Jill and Ethan's wedding will hold a lot of records for my 2017 wedding season... Starting with the fastest ceremony I have ever photographed. In a record breaking 5 minutes (maybe even less) they said I do. It actually took longer for wedding party to walk down the aisle. I'm also pretty sure that they will hold the record for wildest dance party for 2017. 

Jill & Ethan transformed Water's Edge Event Center for their wedding. They had a beautiful Marina theme with the coolest cake design I've seen in 10 years! 

 

Some of my favorite moments from their wedding was when Jill & Ethan were just goofing around. I especially loved when Jill was walking down the aisle and Ethan's smile literally went from ear to ear. I also started doing first looks with the bridal party and the bride this year. I'm a big lover of emotion and I tend to try to set up a shot for real emotions when I can. Jill's bridesmaids were so adorable. They stood in a row holding hands as Jill opened the door. Their faces were absolutely priceless. I also loved how hard Jill's mom tried not to cry. Jill got her though when she gave her a special gift right before the ceremony. 

 

I love asking the bride what her favorite moments from the day are... Jill said "Ugh I had so many! Seeing Ethan's reaction to seeing me for the first time. Walking into the ceremony. Our first Dance. Dance with my Dad and dancing with all my friends."

 

Their Story

It only took a little over 3000 days (8ish years) for Jill and Ethan to finally say I do ! They met at Cancun Cantina while Jill was at a Bachelorette Party. Some of Jill's friends approached Ethan and some of his work buddies to get them to eat candy from a candy necklace on the brides leg... It was love at first bite! 

 

Ethan finally proposed while they were at a friends Memorial Day party. He asked  her to to get him a beer, she told him in a minute. A few moments last he asked again.. so she went and got one for him, a friend and myself. When she got to him he got down on one knee while she stood there with 3 beers in her hand!
