Jason and Carrie were the winners for the 2014 Free Wedding Photography contest. It was great getting to know them better since last February and listening to all their plans for their big day. After a fun spring engagement session, it was hard to believe their wedding day was finally here. They were joined in marriage in Sunbury United Methodist Church.
Jason got the finishing touches as he waited to see his bride for the first time.
On the other side of the church Carrie was helped into her wedding gown by her family and friends.
Jason’s mom watched as Carrie’s bridal party helps with her gown. It was a bitter sweet time for Carrie and Jason as they were not sure if his ailing mother would make it to the wedding. But she was a beam of light. She lit up at the sight of them both and took it all in. She was greeted with so many hugs and well wishes.
Jason and Carrie chose to have the First Look. Jason was eager with anticipation. I think it literally took his breath away the first glance he got of Carrie. Emotions ran high and he was comforted by his bride to be.
A fun bridal party group!
The guests and bridal party made their way from the church to The Royal American Links Golf Club in Galena for the reception to follow.
Mr. and Mrs. Status upgraded!
The reception was decorated with accents of their wedding color’s and bit’s and piece’s of Carrie and Jason’s greatest loves and cherished memories.
It was a wonderful evening spent watching these two join their lives together and be part of their special day. Congratulations to you both!!
My condolences go out to Jason and Carrie on the passing of his mother Natalie this week. So thankful she was able to be there for you both.
