Jenna + Scott: Married in Fairfield County, CT

For most teachers, September is a busy rush of back-to-school night and getting to know your new students as you settle into a routine. But Jenna and Scott, both elementary school teachers, added one more thing to the mix: they had a spectacular September wedding in Stamford and Greenwich, CT!

Their teacher colleagues had tried to set them up, but it took Jenna and Scott just a little more time to figure it all out on their own.  But as third grade teachers in the same school, it wasn’t long before they realized that 1 +1 absolutely does equal 2.

They chose the same church that Jenna’s parents had been married in 40 years earlier, while Scott’s own parish pastor came to marry them. After the ceremony, we took photos at the same park that their parents used for photographs, and even found the same sweet wooden bridge to recreate the photo.

    These pictures made me smile (and cry). They truly captured an amazing day. Scott and Jenna are as happy, living, and cheerful as these photos showed. 1+1 always has an always will equal 2. So overjoyed that #JennaAndScottTiedTheKnot. I love you both and feel blessed to have been a witness to your love story and union. May God continue to bless you both. -Lavone (aka Lavern Robinson)
