Her blue eyes are outta-this-world-ridiculous! On Mike’s “winter to do list” is learning how to tie a bow tie. The dramatics involved for those who’ve never done it makes for great images… yet very frustrating for those who are in the images. That guy behind JJ looks like someone just told him that he needed to save the world from aliens who were about to attack…So fancy!
Love me a bird-cage veil!Men in tuxes… BADABOOM BADABING!
Aren’t those dresses gorgeous?! I’ll answer this for you. YES!LOVE!Jenny’s dad may not have been there, but thoughts and memories of him were everywhere.…her mom walked her down the aisle. Here was the moment right before they turned the corner.YOU’RE MARRRRRIED!!!!What a fantastically fun wedding party!
Jenny and JJ wanted photos on Ohio State University. When we showed up we found a marching band competition happening…. So what do we do?! WE MAKE IT WORK! Give me lemons, I’ll make you some yum-town lemonade!
WORK IT!You two are ridiculously good looking. It’s overwhelming. My favorite.

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Jenny: Our ceremony.. sitting up there and just looking at all the faces before us.. its really touching that all those people were there for us.. and our vows of course. i didnt think it would be as emotional as it was.
JJ: Getting to see Jenny for the first time – she looked so gorgeous in her dress!
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Jenny: Wear comfortable shoes! Seriously. or bring back ups. and dont sweat the small stuff.. i tried my best not to and got a reminder a few times from one of our groomsmen to just ‘stop worrying about it’ because it doesnt matter.. no one else knows that something might not be going according to plan. oh, and do a first look! seriously. you wont ever regret that.
JJ: Make sure you take some time during the day to step back and take it all in. It’s over so quickly – make sure you get to enjoy it. It certainly is the happiest day of your life!
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Jenny: Probably when I fell on my ass while trying to dance crazy… or when my brother texted me super early in the morning and asked if he could do a toast because he woke up in the middle of the night, got an idea, and wrote a speech on the hotel notepad. Ha!
JJ: Jenny running over to me and taking a big time fall on the dance floor – luckily she wasn’t really hurt (although she still contributes some wrist pain to the fall)
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Jenny: In the grand scheme of things, no.. it was a pretty damn perfect day.. if i’m being nitpicky.. I might’ve gotten a different dress or not worn my shoes to the rehearsal dinner or worked out more. lol but… no, we had the perfect day.
JJ: Spend less time stressing about everything and just letting things go. If you plan well, it will all go perfectly!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Riviera Maya, Mexico and it was GORGEOUS! My first time out of the country and it was truly amazing.

Much love friends!
