We first met Jenna and her family when we photographed her sister’s wedding almost five years ago. She met Zack a few months after that wedding and we were so honored that they reached out to us again to photograph their wedding too!
Jenna has an incredibly close and supportive family. They have a deep bond that most families only dream of and they aren’t afraid to let their commitment and affection for each other show. They put together all of the details for the wedding themselves and her dad even hand built many of the elements of the day including the beautiful altar they were married under. They have a simple and straight forward style that is very relaxed but also remarkably elegant and tasteful.
Another thing we’ve learned about Jenna’s family between two weddings is that they LOVE to dance and have a good time together! Zack’s family was no slouch in this area either! His family has Jewish roots and they certainly knew how to have fun and celebrate as well. Several of his relatives even made the trip all the way from Israel to partake in this grand celebration. The excitement of reuniting with these family members was contagious and perfectly encapsulated the tone of the entire event.
We can’t talk enough about how majestic and beautiful their venue, The Overlook at Geer Tree Farm, was. It is picturesque and grand, yet quaint and distinctly New England. They really have everything you could want available, were well organized and coordinated, but also did a great job of staying out of the way and letting the couple have full control of their day. One of the many great features available is the Sperry Tent over the reception area. There’s no other style of tent around that can match its sophistication and elegance of design. Another great feature is massive firepit area off to the side that made the perfect area to take a quick break from the wedding reception to sit by a warm fire, roast marshmallows and have an intimate conversation.
What more can we say really? We love this family so much and who couldn’t resist their simplistic style with so many thoughtful and sentimental details.
Zack and Jenna – thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding. We wish you all the best as you begin your new family together. May your home and your lives be continually filled with the joy and excitement of your wedding day and may you be the continuation of the kind of sentimental love and commitment exemplified by each of your individual families!
