I remember seeing Brendan’s big smile lighting up the dance floor at her sister Joelle and Jocelyn’s weddings – it was Jillian’s turn to get married! Jillian has been engaged since 2020 – she was originally planning on a 2021 wedding, but Covid may have still been a concern, so she chose 2022.
Jillian’s wedding coincided with the end of Hurricane Ian rolling through all day and it broke my heart to see Jillian continuing to look out the window all day at the rain. But we were prepared! I had arranged with a local greenhouse to take photos there.
The challenge of a big wedding party and a traditional style wedding (getting ready at private homes, ceremony at church, photos at a park or outdoor location, and reception at a hall/place without a lobby or hotel rooms) – there’s not many places to go when it rains and time is tight. But I always try to come up a firm backup plan and the greenhouse was toasty warm for the ladies too.
Brendan kept up the good spirits all day and cheered Jillian up! I loved the look of Jillian and Brendan’s wedding – black and white and classic including a white dance floor. After the reception, these two were having an after-party too! But not before we finished off with a few night shots.
It was so special to watch all THREE sisters in this family get married and I will miss working with them. Every wedding was gorgeous and so much fun – what lovely daughters mom and dad have raised!
Note to the couple:
Jillian and Brendan, it was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
