Lazy J Ranch Wedding Ceremony and Reception Venue

Lazy J Ranch Wedding

A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to a circle of friends, all of which whose weddings I photographed.  I subtly realized then, that good people hang out with good people.  Fast forward and now it was Jason’s turn to get married.  True to form, he too found a good one.  Jamie is one of the kindest people I have met with the biggest heart.  Together, they are supportive, jovial, and calming.  We had so much fun after shooting their engagement session that we decided to grab dinner after, just because.  You can imagine how excited I was after their engagement session to later photograph their wedding.

Their wedding was laidback, unassuming, and classy, just like the two of them.   They cared greatly about the experiences of their friends and family, second to the person they were going to marry.  They had their ceremony at St Mary’s Catholic Church in Milford and drove down the road for their Lazy J Ranch wedding reception.

With both Jason and Jamie ready (and their crew anxiously peeking out of the party bus,) they shared their first look.

I am not sure exactly why, but I love this photo.  I don’t know if it is the colors, the tenderness, or the nature…but there is something about the shot that works.

As we started to walk back towards the party bus, I noticed a bunch of acorns on the ground and loved how the sea of brown and orange bulbs complimented Jamie and Jason’s wedding colors.  I wanted to incorporate the acorns into the photo but wasn’t sure how.  This was the result.

Joined by their friends, we headed to downtown Milford, where we found a beautiful little cubby of nature to shoot against.

Just as we were finishing our groomsmen shoot, a Lamborghini pulled up.  Naturally, we had to give Jason his own GQ shoot with it.

The colors and weather on their day were perfect.

With the formals out of the way, it was time to get married.

Following their ceremony, it was time to head to their Lazy J Ranch wedding reception.

Needless to say, Jason and Jamie were ready to party.

As their evening wore on, the weather finally broke and started drizzling.  I wanted one last shot to round out their wedding day. Rather than avoid the rain, we embraced it.
