As I mentioned before, we attended a wedding while we were there...as guests! Imagine that. Well, as most of my fellow photogs know...its near impossible to attend a wedding without bringing your gear. So, I brought my camera and had a lot of fun...shooting for FUN! :)
Anyhow, so here are a few memories captured from our dear friend, Christie's, wedding.
Christie and her daddy. I love the looks they are exchanging right here.
It was such an emotional wedding as you'll see later on. Christie is the baby of the family and the first to marry. :)
I got to sneak upstairs for this shot. The church was absolutely beautiful.
I LOVE this shot! They had mini towels as favors for the guests to wave in the air. Cute idea! I actually had never photographed a wedding where they've done that before.
The ballroom was incredible! It was so beautifully lit and there was a water feature/fall in the corner of the room. You can kinda see it pictured behind the cake. As you can see, no detail was left out...the cake was beautiful too!
Aaron, Dad-in-law, and brother-in-law...playin' tough. ;)
We had a lot of fun playing with Abbey at the wedding. She actually was really good! I'm hoping she's just as behaved for my brother's in June! :)
Daddy and Abbey making faces...like usual.
This is a shot of the first dance that I took through a wrought iron stair railing (per Aaron's suggestion). Came out kinda cool, huh?
This is Mike, father of the bride. He gave a really sweet toast and prayer before the meal.
And, this is sister/maid of honor, Jamie. She's just wild! I just love her. Her toast was awesome...recalling funny stories of the girls when they were younger. Since I married into the family, I didn't get to grow up with this fantastic family, so it was really cool to hear a little more about their past. :)
And this is where it got rough...the father daughter dance. They started out so well, and then the tears just started rolling...
So, then Mommy Sandy felt left out and joined them on the dance floor...
And then Jamie decided she wasn't gonna be left out of this group hug and joined the party! :) It was so incredibly sweet...I don't think there was a dry eye in the building.
The handsome groom and his mommy. :)
I love this shot of Tom and Christie. Christie was actually singing the song to Tom...so sweet!!!
Let the party begin!!!
Once the music started playing, Abbey was ready to dance! Aaron caught these awesome pictures of us gettin' down on the dance floor!
Aaron and his mom...love Jeanne's face here.
This is Steven. Christie's only brother. He is freakin' hilarious... He and Aaron together are trouble.
Look at that group of girls! Isn't Christie just beautiful! She had sooo much fun at her wedding. It was so cool to see her beaming the whole night.
This was one of the best parts all night! Tom pulled these AWESOME undies from Christie's dress...look at her face!!! ha ha!
Steven again and his beautiful fiance, Ashley. You'll see more of these two soon. I took engagement pictures of them while I was out there. They're getting married next year in the NJ Aquarium! So cool!
Christie and her mama Sandy having fun!
Okay, not quite Dirty Dancing...but close enough. :)
Congratulations Christie and Tom! It was such an honor to witness your love for each other and your vows of commitment. Thanks for inviting us out there to share in your special day! We love you!!!
