Weddings are all about celebrating two people’s love for one another, their families and friends’ love for for them, and just love in general! Well, Jen and Meghan’s wedding is no different! Elissa Wood Photography was there to capture every ounce of it, too!
Did you have any specific design inspiration for your big day?
Jen: “Our design inspiration was rustic. We live in a rural area, so we incorporated local wood slabs and we used all farmer’s market flowers. Also, our dresses were from BHLDN, which I am still obsessed with.”
What was the hardest part of wedding planning?
“The area in which we live…although, that kind of made it easy because we didn’t have an abundance of options. We didn’t get overloaded in too many details.”
What made you choose Elissa Wood Photography? Would you recommend them to other couples?
“Elissa Wood was incredible; she was professional and personal, a perfect balance for our special day.”
What is your favorite quality in your wife?
“Meg is really REALLY good at planning, but she is also really good at having fun. Her personal motto is ‘Work hard, play hard.’”
Favorite aspect of your wedding?
“Our ceremony was really incredible. Meg’s uncle was our officiant, and he was perfect. There was so much love surrounding us during the ceremony that it was palpable to everyone in the room. We had such an amazing experience.”
Tell us about your grand exit!
“We had sparklers…at 8pm in August…so it was still light out. We ran through them 3 times to get a good picture. It was pretty funny.”
What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage?
“The amount of love, acceptance, and support we have received from friends, family members, and even strangers. Being in a same-sex relationship isn’t always easy, but we have been so fortunate and are so grateful for the amazing feedback we’ve gotten since we’ve been married.”
We wish you the best lives together filled with love, Jen and Meghan!
