janet + jay - summertime greensboro wedding

janet and jay had such a lovely wedding last june. i've enjoyed getting to know them over the past year and a half from the early planning of their wedding, to photographing their engagement session in the fall of 2012, then janet's bridal last spring, their wedding in the summer, and finally designing their album this past fall, which i delivered to them in their new home in december just in time for christmas. they are such a warm and gracious couple whom i thoroughly enjoyed being around. their sweet dog, peanut, truly won my heart over!

on the day of their wedding, i met up with the ladies at the salon where janet had her makeup & hair done, while jenny arrived at the church to photograph the guys ahead of time.  we had just a little rain in the early afternoon of their wedding, which luckily cleared up in time for photos outside after the ceremony. we headed over to nearby tanger bicentennial gardens, which holds a special meaning to the couple. its where they spent many of their early days together dating, getting to know one another. we also did their engagement session at the gardens as well.  the setting is just so beautiful anytime of year.

the reception was held at a venue i'd never been to before and had always wondered about it, when passing by in that part of greensboro. now i know!  since they had a smaller guest list, it suited them well.  they had a space for a dance floor, a sweetheart table for janet & jay, the cake table, and about 8 tables for the guests and a separate room set up for the buffet.  the picture of janet and jay with the sparklers was at the end of the evening on the outside of the venue.  what a fun time everyone had - it won't be long before they'll be celebrating their 1st anniversary!
