At the Roseburg Event Center, a lovely staircase provided both a staging area for the Grand Entrance and the cake cutting:

Jennifer and Chip's Wedding -- 10/20/2007

Jen and Chip were married on Saturday 10/20/2007 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. They couldn't have gotten a more beautiful day if they'd tried -- the sky was a clear blue, the breeze was lovely and the temperatures were perfect!

I was pleased to welcome David Buss, Chicago based sports photographer, to join me as guest shooter for the wedding and reception.

Jim and Michele -- Wedding!

I first met Jim and Michele early this spring for their wedding consultation and didn't realize at that time what a wonderful fun couple they would become in my life. Over the past months, Michele and I have talked on the phone about everything from cats to cake plateaus! Earlier this summer you saw Jim and Michele's engagement session photos and finally on Saturday I was blessed to be a part of their wedding day.

As Michele's Matron of honor pointed out, as girls they'd dreamed of meeting and marrying Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome... and Jim truly fits the bill! Jim and his brother provided an amazing level of comic relief during both the rehearsal and the wedding -- if that's a sign of things to come, Michele and Jim's lives together will never have a dull moment!

On to the pictures!

Jim and Michele chose to meet before the wedding for a private time together:

I'm thrilled to have been a part of Jim and Michele's wedding day! Love you guys!
