Wow. There are hardly any words I can come up with to fully describe the love between Jenna and Michael. In the brief four hours I spent with them on their wedding day, I witnessed such unparalled infectious joy. From the moment I met Michael in the church to seeing the two of them walk hand in hand towards the car taking them to their wedding day party, they were all smiles. Huge, genuine, excited-to-finally-be-marrying-eachother smiles. The looks these two gave eachother throughout the day were something right out of a fairy tale. They're absolutely crazy about eachother, the kind of couple that gives even the most bitter people a sense of hope.

Jenna and Michael were married in St. Agatha's church in Woonsocket, Rhode Island; a place I had grown up in and feel so completely comfortable shooting in. Jenna was absolutely glowing when she arrived. When I asked her how she was feeling she said "I'm so excited! I feel so pretty!"

Um, YEAH you are, girl <3

The church was packed with Jenna and Michael's friends and family. The joy and pride for the couple radiated from every person there.

I live for the moment the groom first sees his bride and always hope for the groom to have a tear-jerker reaction. Michael delivered.

and so did Jenna's mother. Dry eyes were rare in the church that day.

Jenna's adorable excitement peeking behind her at her guests was way too much to handle.

See what I mean about the way they look at eachother?! Maid of honor totally knows what I'm talking about.

This is exactly the kind of wedding day emotion I'm here for.

Something Jenna and Michael love to do together is spontaneously break out into dances with eachother. Which is one of the top cutest things I've ever heard.

Jenna and Michael, it was an absolute honor to photograph your wedding. Days like yours, days that make me go home with a smile on my face and my heart full really make this job so worth it. I can't wait to see what's in store for the rest of your lives together!
