We first met Jess & Steve for their engagement session last spring. We were almost finished up when the skies darkened and we got caught in the pouring rain. Luckily we got some great shots out of that moment. The next time we met up with them was for our pre wedding consultation where we go over all the details for the wedding day and it poured then too. So come the wedding day we we’re really hoping that the third time really is the charm and we’d get some nice weather for the day, and we certainly did. It was our last fall wedding of the year and truly a perfect day. The sun was shining, the air was warm and there was just enough of fall color around Riverdale Manor.
After Jess got into her beautiful gown, it was time to see her Groom. After the first look, pictures with the bridal party and a little more prep, they shared a beautiful ceremony in the Pavilion. Jess & Steve made vows, exchanged rings and kissed for the first time as Mr. & Mrs. Because of the first look Jess & Steve were able to enjoy the cocktail hour with their guests and mover right into dinner and the reception.

Isn’t she glowing?
