I am extremely excited to be blogging some favorites from Jason and Christas Poconos wedding that I had the pleasure of second shooting with my talented friend Jessica of Jessica Oh Photography this past year! 

When I arrived at the wedding location, I pulled down a long, dark, dirt road that took me into what was a scene, & I swear to you, straight out of the cutest of fairy tales. Nestled in the woods with a serene lake as the nuptials backdrop. Chickens, roamed freely on the property while other farm life weren't far off. The bride & her stunning bridesmaids got ready in the sweetest on site cottage, while the guys did their 'manly guy' things in a rustic cabin across the way. 

The day was very tranquil, would be the best way for me to describe it. Music played, kids ran around outside while the ceremony and reception were being set up flawlessly.  This was probably one of the most relaxed, laid back weddings Ive ever had the pleasure of being present at. The day went on without a hitch. 

When Jason + Christa had their first look, my gosh.. they were both beaming with pure happiness. These two are world travelers, have gone places together most of us only dream of, and yet to see how happy they were in this moment, you could tell they could truly be happy anywhere, as long as they were together.  

Between the mismatched bridesmaid dresses, the bride taking DJing lessons to surprise her groom, their little bear mascot and forest animal details, and don't even get me started on the taco bar with endless topping options (yes taco bar!!) THIS!!! I thought was one of the best parts, each guest was asked to bring their favorite hot sauce for the day.. Needless to say this wedding was jam packed with love and surprises! I felt so blessed to have been a part of their day!

& now some prettiness from Jason + Christas Poconos Wedding!
