Just Married!

Greg Pearson Photography

What a beautiful day in Louisiana!!  I travel to the area about once a year, but for one reason or another, it is never in the spring.  The day was just perfect for Jill’s outdoor wedding!  So many friends and family members gathered at the Gardens of the American Rose Center to witness the ceremony and celebrate the marriage.  Jill is a very special person to me, so I was honored to help her get ready and stand by her side during the ceremony as one of her bridesmaids.  What a fun weekend!

I guess I am a little biased, but I truly feel that the one piece of the wedding that was the most “Jill” was the jacket we created together.  It fit her body and her personality perfectly.  She was truly in her element!  And yes, her tattoos were successfully and beautifully covered, and the grandparents are still none the wiser!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’m going to let them speak for themselves.  Greg Pearson captured the spirit of the event with his amazing photographs.   Any engaged Shreveporters reading this? Hire this guy!  He is truly a talent!

Here are few of his shots that feature Jill’s jacket.  More Greg Pearson Photography photos from Jill’s wedding can be found on Greg’s blog at:  http://pearsoneyecandy.com/blog/?p=2271

And a photo that I took of the happy couple:

I’m really going to miss having Jill as my muse, but am excited for her new life with Chris!  Thank you Jill, and congratulations my gorgeous cousin!
