Jessica and Joe's Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding

I have been privileged to photograph so many beautiful weddings, but Jessica and Joe's was truly one of my favorites. I photographed there wedding as a second shooter to Studio517, and I am so glad I got to be a part of it. To start with, Jessica and Joe were so in love and it was evident throughout the day that they were absolutely perfect for each other. Their wedding was the first time I was able to photograph at the Hollywood Schoolhouse, and I hope there will be many more to follow. It is an AMAZING venue filled with antiques, brick walls, and beautiful lighting. If I was getting married in WA instead of MN it would be my choice location. Jessica wedding was perfect for the venue, and she had thought of every detail, including these adorable shoes for her flower girl.


Her flow girl of your rocked her shoes and dress with style. 

Jessica's dress GORGEOUS


The groom's first look gets a lot of attention, (As it should- it is certainly a special moment) but I have to admit I love the bride's expression during first look's just as much. What makes this couple so sweet is that they looked at each other like throughout the entire day.


In the spirit of keeping this blog from getting to worded, I'll skip ahead to the reception. I have to admit that I love Father/Daughter dances.


Everything about Jessica and Joe's wedding was so sweet and genuine. I loved this candid moment between the bride and her maid of honor after the MOH's tear-jerking toast.
