Jess & Mike | Grove City, PA Wedding Photography

Think big city elegance meets a small town story, and there you have our final wedding of the year.  Jess and Mike met in their small hometown, but they aren't unfamiliar with the allure and novelties of the city.  So on their wedding day, they pulled together the best of both worlds. They brought the style and sophistication of the city to the small town of Grove City.  The endless flowers, elegant tuxedo and gown, sparkling jewelry, and stylish venue were stunning and sophisticated, but all served to accentuate the warm, friendly, and intimate atmosphere of their small-town day.  But that's Jess and Mike.  They may have been the homecoming queen and star football player respectively, but they're as down-to-earth as two people can possibly be.  Like I said, the best of both worlds. 

I cannot adequately communicate how truly wonderful Jess and Mike's wedding was. From the meaningful ceremony and the abundance of gorgeous flowers to the incredible dinner and dance, the day was full of joyous, celebratory tones!  Jess and Mike, we can't thank you enough for trusting us to document your beautiful wedding day.  We were honored to be a small part of your celebration and hope that you enjoy remembering it through the photographs.  We couldn't have imagined a better wedding with which to end our year.  Much love and gratitude to you both!

Jess was a true picture of calm and beauty the morning of her wedding day. I've seen some relaxed brides,
 but Jess definitely takes the cake!  And she looked just beautiful in her flowing gown, veil, and jewelry. 

Jess and Mike were united in holy matrimony at Grace United Methodist Church by Pastor Morse. 

Finally married!!  Jess and Mike had a wonderful, eco-friendly confetti exit--gotta love that! Then, after 
family portraits, we made our way to a few special, nearby spots for wedding party and bride & groom portraits. 

Jess and Mike hosted an absolutely amazing reception at The Corinthian in Sharon, complete with a fabulous
 dinner, local wine favors, a decadent Daffin's chocolate fountain, and a night full of very spirited dancing!
