Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the most beautiful wedding! Jill and Zach were married under the trees at Montagu Meadows on Saturday, June 17, 2017. And let me just tell you, their day was GORGEOUS! Jill was surrounded by seven amazing women wearing champagne pink dresses; and Zach by seven awesome men who never let there be a dull moment. I thought it was so sweet how the girls surrounded Jill and were continuously complimenting her as her hair and make up were being finished. They truly adore her! Before getting the girls dressed we stepped out by the pond to pop a celebratory bottle of champagne and have some laughs! Her girls did a wonderful job of helping her get dressed and leaving the finishing touches for her sweet mother! Jill is such a beautiful woman, and she was nothing short of jaw dropping on her wedding day! The guys arrived in a few historic cars, Zach leading the crew in “Pap’s Chevy” that belonged to Jills grandfather. The moment gave me chills as they drove down the long driveway with the sun beaming off the old BelAir, I knew Pap was proud and was watching down on them on their big day! Zach helped their son, Weston (Who is just the most handsome little boy you will ever see), put the finishing touches on his outfit before watching mommy walk down the aisle. Jill wanted to have a special moment with her father before they walked side by side, the first look was so precious. Seeing his daughter on her wedding day brought him to tears! The tears didn’t stop there! Jill was glowing as she walked down the aisle, bringing tears to Zach’s eyes as well, followed by more happy tears after they read their vows that they wrote to each other. Their ceremony was filled with so much love, happiness, and laughter! The happy newlyweds departed in Pap’s Chevy as all of their family and friends celebrated with ribbons! And then… was TIME TO PARTY! And they did just that! Ahmad of Id Pro DJ kept everyone on the dance floor, and they danced the night away! Jill and Zach, I couldn’t be any happier for the two of you! Your happiness is so contagious, and you are surrounded by so many loving people! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Bauer!
