Meadow Hill Farm Wedding

I remember the first night we met Ally.   We were gathered in Jeff’s backyard catching up with friends, and in walks in this girl from California with long dark hair and a smile that lit us all up.  We didn’t know it at the time, but we wondered…”who is this girl? is Jeff dating her?”  

After our hunches were confirmed, we drove home that night and I turned to Jen and said, “I know this might sound crazy and forward, but I think Jeff is going to marry that girl.”  There was something in Jeff I hadn’t seen before. A tender confidence and the same look in his eye that I had for Jen when we first met.  Truly, if you were there, you couldn’t have missed it.

Getting to witness this relationship grow has been nothing short of a gift to Jen and I.  Jeff and Ally have a love that’s strong and contagious, a community unlike any we’ve met, and a family with arms so wide you can’t feel anything but welcomed in their presence.

If this day was anything, it was a celebration of that – friends and family joyfully coming together to share and honor the deep love they have for these two people.

Jeff and Ally, we love you and hope these images honor the joy that overflowed from the hearts of all your people on the day you became husband and wife.
