This past July, I had the great pleasure of shooting Jennifer and Jordan’s wedding in Gardner, New York. They stood under the same chuppah – on the very same ground – that Jordan’s parents did, 37 years earlier. This was a first for me, and one I’ll never forget. They put so much attention into history and personal details – it was a blissful day.
The ceremony took place at Jordan’s parents’ second home, which was once a hunting lodge. The bride’s bouquet was made by her sister from recycled bottles (it was exquisite!). Jen Townsend made the bride’s ring. “She lives up near Rochester,” Jennifer said, “and we decided on the design over the phone… It was a a leap of faith, but I really liked her work and trusted her process. Needless to say, I’m thrilled with it!”
Jordan, who started the artisan tonic company Qtonic, wore a Bespoke suit, and Jennifer, who works for Storycorps, wore a stunningly elegant dress from J. Crew. The couple made their entrance in Jennifer’s baby blue 1973 VW super convertible, and Jordan’s dad drove his 1944 Willy ruby red Jeep.
The food was incredible – it was catered by Village Market – and everything was local and perfectly prepared. I could go on and on about how beautiful the day was – but maybe you should just check out the photos!
