Carissa and Jarred have been on the blog before. You see, I have been close friends with Carissa since middle school. She is one person who has believed in me every step of the way, even when there have been seasons where life has had us in different places. When Carissa met Jarred, they instantly were friends and that quickly turned into a relationship. Over the past few years, they have remained just as in love as when they first met, and in February of this year, they tied the knot.
I was so honored to be able to be their wedding photographer and to capture the moments of the day as they unfolded. Carissa was one of the most peaceful brides. The day was filled with fun and laughter and snow. Yes, they had a winter, snowy wedding. Guests were wrapped up in blankets during the ceremony while sipping hot chocolate. It was perfect. The sunshine even showed up as they exchanged their vows surrounded by family and close friends. Carissa and Jarred have a baby boy named Brody, and he is the most hilarious little peanut. He knows he is adorably sweet and is full of personality. Also! At the wedding, Carissa and Jarred announced that Baby #2 would be a BOY as well! After a few months of keeping it a secret, the news was revealed to family and friends!
Two of my best friends, Gabbie and Tara, came with me to the wedding and helped me with everything that needed to be done. They are the sweetest and ended up helping with last minute details and even shot a little bit of the wedding with me! Thank you lovely friends, I am one lucky girl.
Here are some of my FAVORITE images from the day.
