Wedding | Jess and Anthony

If rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck, then Jess and Anthony are truly blessed. Jess and Anthony did their engagement session on a beautiful fall day in the Hudson Valley, but their wedding was the day before Hurricane Irene hammered the east coast. The day outside was dark and rainy, but you wouldn’t have known based on their sunny disposition.

Jess and Anthony have amazing family and friends who shared in the joy of their wedding day. Here’s a selection of our favorite images.

Jess’ experience and knowledge as a graphic designer is really evident in their wedding invitation. The striking design elements and pleasing choice of colors work great together and compliment the colors they used in the wedding.
