8am Saturday morning we arrived at Bossler Mennonite Church where Justine & James would be saying their vows to each other later that morning. We got pictures of the details while Justine got her hair done and all of the girls finished getting ready. Justine & James decided they wanted to have a first look and we had enough time to set it up at their reception location (a beautiful private farm in Mount Joy). In the moments before we left the church Justine kept saying, I just want to see James. She was so excited to see her man and become his wife! They are very sweet together and you could see the joy on their faces the whole day.
The ceremony was lovely and I really appreciated what their pastor had to say during his message about preferring and honoring one another. After the ceremony it was back to the farm for pictures with the bridal party and then lunch. The reception wasn’t filled with a lot of events, but it was filled with laughter and stories and a lot of kissing. If you wanted Justine & James to kiss, you had to kiss first :)
Love the color of the bridesmaids dresses.

Getaway vehicle. There was a lot of tire smoke and black diesel smoke as all the guys raced over to the reception. I grabbed this pic while we struggled to keep up.
