Jacob & Jessie - May 27, 2011 - LDS Wedding Photographer

It was amazing to be a part of Jacob and Jessie's special day. You may notice you won't find any pictures of their ceremony. That is because Jacob and Jessie are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As members of the LDS faith we believe when we marry we do so for Eternity - "til death do we part" is not apart of our vocabulary! Jacob and Jessie were married in the Washington D.C. Temple in a special ceremony called a sealing, which is a sacred and beautiful act where cameras are not permitted. However, they were surrounded by their closest friends and family and their joy and excitement following their ceremony can't be denied when you look at these pictures!

It was very clear to me over the course of getting to know Jacob and Jessie better as a couple that they are the best of friends. I felt so privileged to share their special day with them and had a blast. Here are some of my very favorite pictures from their day at the Temple and their reception at Rockhill Plantation in Stafford, Virginia.

Every time Jessie sank down, her dress just engulfed her. We couldn't resist a picture!

This being an LDS wedding, we had mashed potato margaritas! Equally genius and delicious!

I think we all had tears in our eyes while watching the Father/Daughter dance.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Johnson! =)
