Crimping is news to me, but I think it’s cool. Maja has been a dream to work with from the outset, emailing regularly, sending Pinterest ideas and following my pins as well. I am so excited that this day has finally arrived and I’m here photographing her. Maja is committed to staying hydrated. Seriously committed. Maja’s mom and her maid of honor (and best friend) (and hyper-organized in a way that warms my heart) Anny see Maja in her dress for the first time. Breathtaking. Meet Isis, the Dog of Honor, named after the Egyptian goddess (the ideal woman and friend of the downtrodden). Isis plays a large part in Maja and Jordan’s life, and they do in hers. Meet Jordan, who is seeing Maja in her dress for the first time. Maja is a goddess in Jordan’s life, and their love for one another is a delight to be around. With both of her best friends in close proximity, Isis allows herself a moment of repose. A group hug that I get the impression may have freaked Jordan out just a little bit. BFFs. Jordan’s best man was his brother Jesse. And if you’re wondering why Isis looks perfect in every photograph, it’s because Jordan had thoughtfully trained her to perk up her ears and look straight at the camera at the command “Focus.” I’m serious. She was amazing. Sunset on Kent Lake at the beautiful Mountain Meadows Lodge in Killington. The first dance. A Newlyweds game, in which tables competed to answer trivia questions about Maja and Jordan. Their friends and family knew them well! I can’t deprive you of the opportunity to meet Maja’s brother Zoran, who is one of those people who brings his own fun with him. Maja and her family are from Croatia, and there were some traditional Croatian dances throughout the evening. This is a dance that crosses international borders. A dance of pure joy. Some wedding receptions are filled with good dancers, and Maja and Jordan’s was one of them. Two of my favorite images from the day. Jordan had also trained the geese to paddle past during his few short days at Mountain Meadows. Okay, just kidding. Maja and Jordan, may your lives together be as magical as your wedding day!
