The Hayloft Summer Wedding: Jade & CJ

Somerset PA Wedding Photographer

Jade and CJ were married at the beautiful, wonderful Hayloft in Rockwood, PA. This is an especially neat post for me to share because like Elyse and Michael’s wedding the year before, I too was married at the Hayloft. Brian and I are actually celebrating ten years of marriage this summer, so looking back through Jade and CJ’s pictures reminded me of my own wedding day. But enough about that, let’s chat about Jade and CJ’s big day! 

First fun fact, well, maybe second…I went to high school with CJ! So when Jade contacted me to photograph their wedding, I was extra excited! My photography has reunited me with many old friends and it’s such a special treat. CJ and I were able to hang out as old friends but also accomplish some missions at the same time. Getting married and document it beautifully. Boom! 🙂

Jade, it was lovely to meet you and your sweet little ones! Your little guy reminds me of my little guy and your little girl was a highlight of the photography reel. You and CJ put together such a beautiful day! Here’s to many more years of love and family, you guys! 

The Hayloft does their own flowers! AND they always look beautiful!! 

Jade’s dress has so much va-voom to it! My mom and I loved it, and Jade looked stunning in it! 

The sweetest little flower girl moment… 🙂

On to some portraits! See, STUNNING!

Yellow! Such a perfect color for a summer wedding. 🙂

Big coat, little coat. 🙂

CJ dressing his little guy…

Oh my goodness look at that smile!

I love this circular ceremony set-up! Definitely one of my favorite ways for my couples to get married. 🙂


Dad’s tear…

My mom snuck this one in!

Another one from my mom!

I don’t remember the exact temperature, but it was HOT this day. Definitely somewhere in the 90s…maybe close to 100. Thank you to this wedding part for standing out in the sun on a hot day for pictures!

The Hayloft put in this new indoor ceremony space that sits in the bottom level of their barn. Bales of hay for seating, strings of lights, and even some church windows! Jade and CJ requested a few extra portraits in this space…


And now for the reception! The barn at The Hayloft always looks so beautiful!

I especially loved their mix of sparkle and rustic-ness. 🙂

The Hayloft uses their old piano for buffet set-up! So clever…


I also shared some of Jade and CJ’s wedding in my wedding color inspiration blog series. The yellow gets me every time! 🙂
