Jenna & Drew’s Peacock-Inspired Wedding

On the first Saturday in June – an absolutely breathtaking day – Jenna & Drew said “I do” in front of a close group of their family and friends. It was such a special day to photograph for so many reasons, but perhaps the most special being that this amazing couple has actually already been “officially” married for a while now, however due to Drew’s deployments overseas, their big celebration has been a long time coming. You could feel the emotion and joy in each in every one of their guests who were finally able to celebrate with the bride and groom.
Jenna wore a stunning full skirt and lace bodice gown that had me green with envy. It was definitely one of the most beautiful wedding dresses I’ve ever seen. (and I’ve seen a lot of wedding dresses!) Drew was clad in a classic gray tuxedo with a peacock-feathered bow tie. These two looked SO good!
The intimate wedding ceremony and reception were hosted at Jenna’s aunt’s home near Big Bay, Michigan. It was such a beautiful venue for the celebration, filled with thoughtfulness and love everywhere you looked. ​The peacock accents and vibrant colors made it near impossible not to smile the whole day long.

“THE WAY DREW LOOKED AT JENNA IS WHAT LOVE STORIES ARE MADE OF.”

The big day was a destination wedding for the bride, groom and many of the guests. The cool 60 degrees in the evening must have felt like the middle of January to Drew’s family who joined us in Upper Michigan from Alabama! But the sun was shining, music was playing, and love filled the air, making the day nothing short of spectacular.

In my opinion, what made the day was the way the groom adored his new wife. The way Drew looked at Jenna is seriously what love stories are made of. You can tell by simply glancing their way how truly in love they are.

Jenna & Drew: Thank you a million times for choosing me to capture your big day. I feel beyond blessed to have been able to serve you and your families on such a memorable and special day. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness together!
