Katie and Jordan's Wedding at Essex Resort and Spa

Katie and Jordan got married on a chilly October afternoon at the Essex Resort and Spa.  The East Lawn provided a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony.   This was my first time photographing a ring Warming ceremony.  If you have never heard of this, it is where they invited their family members to surround them, the family members passed around the rings, holding them in their hands and saying a prayer for the couple.  After the ceremony we went to the front gardens for some photos under the beautiful maple trees.  At the reception the maid of honor and best man both gave wonderful speeches that had the guests laughing and crying.
