Melody + Jason 6. 8. 13

July 25, 2013  •  1 Comment

When I heard the news of my cousin Melody's engagement to Jason I was so thrilled.  I was even more honored when she asked me to photograph their rehearsal and wedding day.  These two seriously are such an amazing couple and this was my first "gig" back from maternity leave.  I met Jason for the first time, along with his two incredible sons, last Christmas at our family celebration, and it was immediately obvious to me that the four of them had already created such a strong bond with each other and that Jason and his boys were going to fit right in with the rest of the Simpson clan. It was that same day that we spontaneously decided to snap a few engagement photos so they could make their big announcement in the local paper.  I love when random photo shoots just happen! 

 

The rehearsal went smoothly and we headed to the Gold Eagle Restaurant in Brookville, PA for dinner.  I was able to snap a few candid moments of friends and family.  It was obvious that everyone was pretty excited and happy for these two.  And of course there were some normal wedding nerves floating around.  There was talk of decorations and times and a few things that needed to be checked off of the list.   But, that nervous energy is such a great part of the whole experience.  I love the anticipation and excitement that is  overflowing during those final moments before a big event, like a wedding!   

 

Jason and Melody were married at the First Church of God in Brookville, PA on June 8th at two o'oclock in the afternoon.  Their reception was held at the Brookville Fire Hall.  They were surrounded by friends and family as they began their life together as Mr. & Mrs.  Congratulations, Jason and Melody!  May you have many years of health and happiness together!
