I met Lorena and Tim last spring when we did their engagement session in downtown Morgantown, WV. They were one of the first weddings I booked for 2014 and it seemed like their wedding day was SO FAR away! So when April 26th finally arrived, it was almost hard to believe that we were finally celebrating their wedding day.

I know Lorena and Tim had been planning for a while, and that they were really putting a lot of thought into their details…and it showed! Their vintage circus themed wedding was colorful and full of fun details, so it was a joy to photograph. Everyone was especially impressed with their reception room and I think Lorena and Tim deserve a big high five for all their work!

Thanks for putting together a beautiful day, Lorena and Tim. And thanks for the high priority you placed on your wedding pictures. I think we put together an awesome collection of images together! Enjoy. 🙂

Lorena and her bridesmaids made their bouquets! More and more of my couples are doing this these days…ordering flowers in bulk and then creating bouquets, boutonnieres and other floral arrangements on their own. It saves money and adds a special touch to the wedding decor!

Lorena looked like she stepped out of a wedding from the past. That hair, the veil, her lace gown, her red lips…perfect for the vintage look of the wedding!

Lorena and Tim opted for a first look before the ceremony so they could calm some nerves and gain some extra pictures. How about Tim’s initial reaction!?! Don’t you just love it!? He was enamored with Lorena and the way she looked. 🙂

The original plan was to have the ceremony outside, but the chances of rain were too risky. Don’t you just love the big, bright balloons!?! Very fitting for their theme!

Even though they saw each other before the ceremony, Tim was still excited and anxious to see Lorena come down the aisle. So cute. 🙂

We had to HURRY outside! The clouds were looming and the sprinkles of rain were starting to fall…

Going along with the circus theme…clown noses! Lorena and Tim used these during their engagement session, too! They also made great props at the photo booth inside the reception.

Who’s idea was it to bring out the balloons!?! Lorena’s idea?? I don’t know who it was but THANK YOU!!! Perfect addition to the bride-groom portraits!!!

See those clouds? Yep, the rain finally arrived, so we hurried inside (with the super cute umbrella!) and took a few more portraits before the reception intro…
