We cannot get over how amazing all of our 2022 weddings were! We are so grateful for each and every couple that trusted us to capture their big day, and as we wrap up the year, we just had to give everyone one more shout-out. So, without further ado, here are the Maura Jane Photography 2022 wedding superlatives!
BEST BRIDAL SHOES
Gigi + Bri
We couldn't just pick ONE favorite, I mean, could you? Just look at these gorgeous shoes! Gigi's Jimmy Choos were absolutely to die for, and if you know us, you probably already knew Bri's blue Bella Belle Shoes would be a fave!
Alicia + Jesse
Alicia had not only one gorgeous dress but two! Her wedding dress had tulle bow details, and then she changed into the prettiest pink ao dai. We couldn't deny these gorgeous dresses this spot!

Jared + Jeff
This custom white suit came all the way from Poland, and the intricate designs made this an absolute shoo-in for best suit!
Tracy + Alex
These colorful flowers were absolutely gorgeous, and we could not get enough of them! A Beautiful Theme really outdid themselves with Tracy and Alex's flowers.
BEST PARTY CREW
Bernadette + DeHaven
Bernadette and DeHaven's guests really knew how to have a good time! The dance floor was packed the ENTIRE time, and we have the photos to prove it.
Funky Olive really blew us away with this gorgeous invitation suite! From the envelope color to the rounded invitation and soft pastel designs, we love every part. But the wax seals with pressed flowers might just be our fave detail.

BEST DRESSED BRIDAL PARTY
Brooke + Chris
Brooke and Chris' bridal party absolutely killed it in their black suits and neutral dresses in different fabrics.

A maraca as a wedding favor? So unique! And the fact that they matched the color scheme and were part of the decoration makes them all that much better. We are total fans!

BEST CEREMONY EXIT
Arielle + Colin
When we got to this category, we just knew it had to go to Arielle and Colin for their awesome confetti exit! It was so pretty, and it honestly made for the coolest moment.
Allie + Kyle
Okay, imagine ending your wedding day by jumping in a pool with your wedding attire and closest loved ones. Well, that's exactly why Allie and Kyle's EPIC reception exit was the winner in this category.
BEST BRIDAL DETAILS
Caitlin + James
Caitlin's bridal details were to die for, and they had the sweetest meaning behind them. She wore forget-me-not earrings in memory of her mother because those were the seeds handed out at her mother's funeral.

BEST ESCORT CARDS
Mary Pat + Heath
Mary Pat and Heath's escort cards were so unique! They were gold Milagros with pastel ribbons, and they were hands down the prettiest escort cards.
