Okay, here's their slideshow. You can click anywhere inside the box to start the slideshow, or on the small triangle at the bottom of the box. After you click on play, it will pre-load so that you won't have any delays during the playback. So please be patient - it's worth the wait. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
All of Jenny & Joey's photos are finished and uploaded to the photo store. Go take a look at them and let me know what you think by leaving a comment on this blog. Later this week, their slideshow will be ready too. Can't wait for you to see it.

All of Jenny & Joey's photos are finished and uploaded to the photo store. They are previewing them over the weekend. On Monday, I'll make the gallery available for everyone else to see too. Next week, I'll post their slideshow for you to watch. If you haven't seen a photo presentation set to music, then you have to come back and check it out. There's just something so amazing about the photos when there's music in the background and some movement to the images. Be sure to come back. In the meantime, here is a photo of them taken during the rehearsal the evening before the wedding. Have great weekend.

The wedding ceremony was conducted by Pastor Tim Hunt and by Pastor Brandon Craig. They led a wonderful service that was God honoring and so appropriate for the bride and groom. Floral services were provided by Gates Flowers & Gifts. After the bride and groom left Belmont Christian Church in their chauffeured vintage car (1938 Plymouth, I think) they made the short ride from Christiansburg to Blacksburg, where they arrived for the reception at Custom Catering Center. Inside they proceeded to continue their special day with lots of family and friends. Custom Catering had prepared a delicious meal for everyone at the reception. Susan Whetzel (firstname.lastname@example.org) prepared the wedding cake, which was a wonderfully decorated cheesecake. It tasted great! There were also lots of cupcakes. The reception featured lots of dancing with DJ services provided by Kerri Taylor & Company with Gene Broadus at the mic. The entire day was filled with wonderfully friendly people that made Jenny & Joey's special day all the more special. I am so thankful to have been a part of the event. I would also like to thank the wedding coordinators for their excellent planning and direction for this day. You both made it run so smoothly. To Joey and Jenny Conrad, Dewana and I thank you for the opportunity you gave us to serve you.

Wow. After capturing some precious memories of all the special details and the time getting ready, the ceremony was ready to begin. From beginning to end, this ceremony was truly a blessing for me to be a part of. I so enjoyed all parts of the ceremony. The vows were so special, and there were many people wiping tears of joy from their eyes. Here are just a sampling of the wonderful images from the wedding ceremony. I'll be posting more of them later on my website, but in the meantime, head on over to Facebook to see more of them.

Before the wedding ceremony began, Jenny & Joey had decided to exchange gifts. There was a catch though. They were going to hand the gifts to each other, but would not be able to see each other. They met in a room that had a pull out divider that allowed them to reach around it without seeing each other. I was there to watch their reactions, but more importantly, I was there to capture their emotions for them to see not only afterward, but for many years to come. It was truly a special time. I enjoyed seeing the emotions from each of them, and was so looking forward to them seeing the images. That was a great idea. Thanks for letting me be a part of it.

Jenny & Joey met with us last week to preview their images before anyone else got to see them. Now that they have seen most of them, I'll post a few of them here for the rest of you to see. One of the most difficult decisions I make is choosing which images to show. Since there are so many, I've decided to post a few at a time to allow me to show more. Anyway, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Truthfully, I want you to see them all, but we just don't have that much time. I hope you enjoy looking through them. Post a comment with your favorites. Congratulations Jenny & Joey! You were great to work with.
