Earlier this month we were lucky enough to document Jennifer and Jason’s wedding at Ralston Hall Mansion in Belmont. If you’re a regular follower you’ll likely recognize them from their engagement session earlier this year. It was a truly elegant space and affair!
The guys came on the scene first, so we got to start with Jason. This is one of my very favorite groom portraits ever! A little play on the details of the venue and Jason’s height.
This had a very old school feel so BW felt most appropriate.
Getting that last button latched is a joyful moment!
Double your reflection, double your fun.
Jennifer in her throne.
Love the feel of this one. Cool space eh?
Jennifer and Jason’s first sight:
Moments before the ceremony Jason was solo in this room, and you could see his intense concentration, and if you looked closely you could see his mouth moving. Turns out he was doing some last minute cramming, and was going over his vows to make sure everything came out perfect.
It was a very emotional ceremony with many smiles and tears, some were even simultaneous! Jennifer’s sister did a great job taking care of her. This was captured by Malarie. Nice shot wifey!
We only had a few minutes scheduled for portraits, so we had to make them count!
I couldn’t resist an animated .gif for this moment. This was a moment during the toasts where Jason’s initial wooing of Jennifer was being discussed. Being the playa he is (or was), Jason brushed off his shoulder. If you don’t know what this means, here’s the Urban Dictionary definition: “A cool action that only the playaz do when they be pimpin”. I think that says it all.
A couple of first dance moments:

A different angle on the cake cutting.
Jason’s getting ready to go in for the garter.
Jennifer’s not giving it up without a fight apparently.
Loved this angle of the bouquet toss. Getting to do something a little different is always good!
Not sure what’s going on here, and I was there! In any case, I love it. The foot and the pointing finger make it.
This was a really funny series. He was doing a full on serenade to a Bryan Adams song. Pretty sure it was the “Everything I do, I do it for you” song.
Jennifer was doing the robot. Everyone’s a critic, eh Jenn?
Good night Ralston Hall! That’s the moon peeking through the trees btw.
Jennifer and Jason, it was an absolute pleasure getting to know you and your friends and family! Thank you for inviting us in to be a part of it!
