"You can find something truly important in an ordinary minute." - Mitch Albom


I knew from Jenna's first reach out  that their elopement was going to be one for the books. Plans for their big day may have changed several times, but through it all, we knew their big day was going to be perfect. Ray and Jenna have a heart for adventure and craved an unconventional wedding and I love that about them. We finally landed on the plan for them to elope at Taughannock Falls State Park in New York which is were they got engaged. Ray and Jenna got ready with a few close family members at the Inn at Taughannock, a gorgeous victorian inn overlooking a beautiful big lake. Their ceremony was at the state park overlook, and the moment Ray saw Jenna walking down the aisle was priceless. What you need to understand about these two is that they have been together for 10 years. They've been through so much together and I know they were SO ready to be married. So their wedding day was packed with emotion and a sense of relief that they could finally be married. It also POURED right after their ceremony. If rain on your wedding day is good luck, these two are going to have the best marriage ever because the skies just let loose. They had a perfect reception at The North Point pavilion in the park, and then we got to go out for sunset photos. During their ceremony, the falls were bone dry, but because of the rain, we were able to go up in the evening and get some photos with the waterfall running. Their elopement was perfect... but that wasn't the end of the story. We went back out the next day for an adventure session and these two were fearless. I am so excited to be sharing this incredible elopement with you all! Enjoy!
