Jillian & Tim | Wadsworth Mansion

October 20, 2021

What a dream way to end 2021 - a model couple, amazing florals, great dance floor, plus the amazing grandeur of the Wadsworth Mansion! All the details came together and after all that last year threw their way (& resurgence this summer) there was some worry but now they are married!

The wedding went a bit differently than my usual with minimal "getting ready" time which was actually made more time for the prettier things like portraits and the first look. Seeing the guys peak out the windows and the girls trying the same thing was so fun! Jillian saw Tim and couldn't hide her emotions which I loved (since I did the same thing seeing my groom). The grounds in front of the mansion gives us the perfect back drop and privacy. Once Tim saw her he was so happy and told his bride just how beautiful she was and how her dress fit her perfectly!

The ceremony out on the vista was also so amazing and personal with a "circle of love" where immediate family gathered around and blessed their rings and positivity for their marriage. I also loved Tim's uncle's vintage car set up was so classic and fit the overall style of this day. There was even a signature cocktail for their favorite family members, their pugs!

All the guests came to party and dance the night away I had a blast getting these reception photos - truly was smiling behind the camera!

Enjoy the newlywed life! And thank you for making this last wedding of my 2021 season a blast!

All smiles,


First look love!
