Our friend and amazing planner Tricia Dever of Always Eventful approached us in 2012 to photograph the Canton wedding of stage stars Ashley Spencer and Jeremy Jordan. Canton native Ashley rose to fame after appearing on Grease: You’re the One that I Want! and met Tony nominated Jeremy while working on Broadway. Needless to say we were super excited to have the opportunity to work with them and capture the day that Tricia had helped prepare!
The day was filled with emotional moments, hot posing and polished dance moves. We started with the ceremony at the Basilica of Saint John the Baptist in downtown Canton and moved to Brookside Country Club in Jackson for portraits and the reception. While we were scouting the locations for portrait ideas, we discovered that Brookside had a piano that was a perfect fit for this musical couple, and we were able to incorporate it into some of our favorite images of the day.
This is one of Heather and I’s favorite weddings, and we thought it would be a perfect first wedding to share with all of you Genevieve Nisly Photography fans. And it’s particularly relevant right now, as Jeremy is featured on this week’s Law & Order SVU – ‘Agent Provocateur’ – and his new movie The Last Five Years with Anna Kendrick opens in theaters on February 13th! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
