Real Weddings | Jennifer's Penn State Nittany Lions Wedding Garter

Bride Jennifer shared the loveliest pictures from her 2014 wedding to groom Frank, and I'm so excited to feature them on the blog today! The couple met in high school and were friends for 25 years before falling in love and having the wedding of their dreams at Stevenson Ridge in Spotsylvania, Virginia. The couple went to Penn State together, so a Penn State garter was the perfect "something blue"! 

In Jennifer's own words, "I had not wanted to have a big wedding, but Frank didn't have a wedding the first time he got married, and it was important to him that we have a big celebration with all of our friends. What a party! Once we hit the dance floor, Frank and I never left until it was time to leave the reception. I'm so glad I changed my attitude and went with the big wedding. I felt so beautiful with my handsome husband by my side. It was truly the happiest day of my life! Thanks so much for being a part of our day. Frank loved the garter! It was so pretty and the craftsmanship was amazing." Photography by Amanda Dorian Photography.
