Copper River Wedding | Jordan + Allie

May 18, 2020

Jordan and Allie were married on February 22, 2020 at Copper River Country Club in Fresno, California. This cute couple tied the knot with their dearest family and friends present, and the MHP Team was there all day to capture it all! We loved working with the #kastawaywithme squad, their family and friends and the great vendors for their Copper River Wedding. Scroll to see some of our favorite moments from their wedding day!

After their first look, the bride and groom exchanged wedding gifts for one another.

Jordan gifted Allie a beautiful necklace as their wedding day gift. As you can see, she was totally surprised!

Allie gifted Jordan with a photobook from a session she booked with Megan earlier in the year. And as you can see, Jordan was just as surprised! We loved being able to capture these moments for them!!

Would you believe me if I told you that Allie made all of the bouquets?! They looked seriously amazing and the colors worked so well together. Future brides, if you need a florist, this bride has a total knack for this kind of design!

Next you’re going to see one of our personal favorite parts from the wedding day!

Jordan & Allie wanted their guests to be fully present during their wedding ceremony, which means they wanted cell phones AWAY! They hired the MHP Team to capture their day! So, to satisfy everyone’s desire to have an iPhone photo, they had a moment before the ceremony for everyone to take photos.

They stood facing one another holding hands while their guests had a chance to capture their phone photos of the soon to be newlyweds!

Then they turned to face their guests with smiles on their faces so their guests could capture the joy and excitement. This was a perfect way for these two to keep everyone happy; their guests… and their photographers hehe!

The wedding vows are always one of my favorite parts of a wedding ceremony.

Whether couples choose to write their own vows, or stick with the traditional vows, it’s a special moment when they come together to promise forever to one another in front of our Lord Jesus. These are the moments you’ll want to cherish and remember for the rest of your life! The gorgeous architecture of the venue was a great backdrop for the ceremony photos.
