It couldn't have been a more beautiful wedding day for Douglas, Wyoming couple, Clay and Jenelle. The forecast earlier in the week was calling for rain, but the big gray clouds all made clearance just in time.
Clay and Jenelle went to grade school and high school together. They both showed in FFA/4-H and their families knew each other pretty well, although Clay and Jenelle were not close while growing up. After graduating high school, Jenelle moved away for several years. Upon her return she became close friends with his sister and re-met Clay. They became fast friends, and after about a year of friendship they started dating.
When I initially visited with Jenelle about their day, she told me it was going to be an elegant, black and white themed wedding, complete with a three string quartet, and that they had been taking dance lessons so they could do the waltz for their first dance as husband and wife. I was excited to do something a little different this time around unlike my usual rustic cowboy weddings.
When me and my second shooter, Ashiley, arrived, we set up and got to work. Clay and Jenelle's wedding party, as well as their family, were nothing short of a complete blast to be around, and belly laughs were a staple throughout the day. You could definitely feel the love they had for each other, and the love they shared with their family and friends.
It truly was the perfect day <3
