Jennifer & Jared | 9.19.15 — State College, PA

I was thrilled when Jen — a friend from my college journalism program — and her fiancé (now husband) Jared signed me on earlier this year to photograph their beautiful September wedding in State College.

Jen had mentioned prior to the big day that they were planning a laid back wedding, which included a small guest list, a short outdoor ceremony and a quiet evening of drinks and dinner with their families at Toftrees Golf Resort and Conference Center. Luckily, the State College weather Gods had mercy on us and the happy couple received the best wedding gift of them all on their big day: perfect weather. 

I've been to quite a few weddings and this was easily the most relaxing one I've ever attended. Jen and Jared did a wonderful job of keeping everyone entertained while skipping out on a lot of the cheesier wedding reception traditions (no electric slide for this bride and groom!). I'm happy to report that the night went off without a hitch, and I'm so thankful to the newlyweds for having me be a part of it! 

Take a look at a few of my shots from the wedding below. Congrats, Jen and Jared!
