From Jess: “This sweet couple, their incredibly adorable dog, and By Invitation Only Event Planning and Design’s work helped to make this wedding day one of my favorites.
Iris and Brian opted for a First Look on their wedding day! I absolutely love wedding days with First Looks. The couple shared their sweet wedding-day-look-reveal moment, and then we begin to photograph them together for their formal portraits. One of my favorite things about photographing Iris and Brian is the ease with which they laugh together. The entire day, both of these two wore joyful smiles and laughed together often. Photographing them was easy; I didn’t have to ask for big smiles and fake laughs once! You might recognize this cute little furry face in the next few photos; Iris and Brian‘s Frenchie, Jenkins, has graced the blog before with all of his cuteness.
I was so happy when Iris told me she wanted to have Jenkins come to the wedding for photos. He was such a cute addition to their engagement photos and totally stole the show for a few moments during their portraits around 701 Whaley in Columbia.
Jenkins joined us for a few more photos with the couple’s wedding party, and we had a blast photographing them and all of their friends at 701 Whaley. I absolutely love how joyful and relaxed not only Brian and Iris look in these photos, but also their entire wedding party! We truly had such a great time working through their photos before the ceremony.”
Although Jenkins was only there for the First Look photos, Iris and Brian found a creative way to include him all night.
In addition to signature cocktails named after Jenkins and their cat, there were cozies with Jenkin’s likeness.
