I'll start by saying that EVERYTHING about Lindsay & Cody's wedding was AMAZING. The bride and groom, their friends, their families, the location, the decorations, the thoughtful additions, EVERYTHING.
When Lindsay contacted me about potentially photographing their wedding in Canaan Valley, West Virginia (one of my all-time favorite places), I was SO EXCITED. I was even more excited when they chose me and the date was on my 2023 calendar. Skip to the Friday before, arriving on site, I started to sweat it a little bit- I REALLY wanted to do Canaan and the Jarretts justice.
Before the ceremony, we photographed some detail shots, the groom in a race, the bride with a special surprise for the groomsmen, and everyone riding the ski lift up the mountain to the STUNNING ceremony site. Deciding which photos to post was a struggle and there are so many photos I wanted to include, but here are 50 of my favorites...
After the mountain photo with ALL the men in the wedding, we packed the groomsmen in my truck to go to another location at the resort. This group was so fun they didn't think twice before climbing in the back.
There was a crazy long race (40 miles?) going on near the resort...so the guys joined in...this was such a fun moment!
Speaking of fun moments... Lindsay wanted a "first look" with the groomsmen.
Little did they know...
You've been "Iced"
Cody and Lindsay,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the honor of spending the day with you in our version of paradise and capturing moments during your perfect wedding day. There are so many more I'm excited for you to see...
Cheers to your happily ever after.
