Best of 2016 Weddings

In 2016 I was reminded once again how lucky I am to get to do what I do for a living. It can be extremely difficult and time consuming, but getting to be a part of such a special day in people’s lives is most definitely worth it!

As always, my favorite part is getting to know the couples. Each wedding was a great reminder of how amazing it is to be married and to begin the journey with the one you love. It was truly an honor to be chosen to preserve those memories!

As a way of saying thank you and to show how appreciative I am, I want to give away free stuff! The winning couple will receive a FREE 16×24 canvas wrap of the photo of their choosing. That’s a $400+ value!

the Contest::
1) Look through the photo highlights below
2) Leave a comment on this blog post about which photo/couple is your favorite
3) The couple with the most votes for their photo wins the 16×24 canvas

the Rules::
- Only one vote per person. Choose wisely!
- Only votes/comments on this blog post will count. Votes on individual photos will not count.
- Voting ends April 14th @ midnight CST
- Use your amazing social media skills to spread the word – facebook, twitter, instagram, google+, email, blogs, etc.
- If you have any trouble commenting on the blog to vote, you can email photos@jadongood.com

Thank you for a truly amazing 2016!
