Suzan & Jared - Emerson Park Pavilion Wedding

Suzan and Jared were married on a gorgeous Saturday in July. They started their wedding day in style at Mirbeau Inn and Spa one of my absolute favorite spots, it doesn't get any better than the gardens for a first look! It is so important to allow enough time for portraits on your wedding day, I think most couples underestimate how much time it actually takes to get comfortable in front of the lens (even when you have already done an engagement session). Suzan and Jared planned well by taking advantage of the gorgeous gardens at Mirbeau before heading out to their ceremony and reception at the Emerson Park Pavilion. It's great that they allowed for the extra time together before the ceremony since a tremendous thunderstorm hit right when we had planned for some sweet light portraits at Emerson. Enjoy the lavash wedding that Suzan and Jared created, much love to you both!!
