Well if today isn’t a gloomy, rainy day then I don’t know what is. The only thing I keep thinking is the more it rains now the less likely it will be to rain on my wedding day. Totally not the case what so ever but hey, I’m trying. I actually dont mind days like today. I get in huge comfy sweatpants with an over sized sweatshirt and put on my Mat Kearney Pandora station and edit edit edit! But if I am being honest I am hitting that point in the day where you need a nap. As in curl up on the couch with a blanket and “rest your eyes”. OK enough… I am going to talk myself into it!
The past Friday I shot Nicole and Marks wedding. They were just recently on my blog with their engagement session. Both their engagement session and wedding took place at Tupper Manor. We did their engagement photos there just in case it were to rain. Well, it didn’t rain, but it was beyond windy. Every time we went to step foot outside a huge gust would come and blow Nicole’s veil and hair straight into the air. So, we decided to play it safe and shoot inside. Luckily Tupper is really bright and has tons of space for indoor shooting. Nicole and Mark had so many great perks to their wedding. One, Marks best man was a best woman. Two, Nicoles brother was the officiant. And three, Nicole and her dads dance was to the same song my first dance will be with my dad. Id be lying if I said I didnt shed a tear! Another very special part of the day was the fact that Nicoles 92 year old grandmother was able to make it to the wedding. As if that wasn’t special enough it would have been her 66th wedding anniversary with her husband. The DJ actually announced it during dinner and she was so touched by the fact that they acknowledged it that she got a bit chocked up (see photo in blog).
I am going to miss these two so much. I love them both so much and can wait to see what the future holds. HUGE thanks to Derek Gilbert for second shooting with me at this wedding. You will be seeing a lot of him this year!! Also, if you are a soon to be bride and are looking for incredible flowers you MUST check out Donna at Pepperberrys Flowers. She blows my mind EVERY time.
I feel like the last two photos sum it up! Love Life and these two definitely do that! Love these guys!!! Oh yeah… One More
