Title2

I got to spend lots of time with Vinny and Amanda. Their engagement session stretched over two weekends, to get all the shots we wanted. They are AWESOME! Often times during a session, after I get the smile at the camera, I will tell the couple to just “be together.” If that isn’t enough, I’ll offer coaching. Vinny’s face would light up every time I said those words. I love to watch the way a fella will look at his sweetheart. There is much to be seen and read in those twitterpated eyes.
Congratulations to Vinny and Amanda! I can’t wait until your October wedding!

Charlie and Kelly had so many thoughtful, nostalgic details incorporated in their wedding. Every email and conversation I had with Kelly was full of laughter and smiles. She was WONDERFUL to work with, and still is. I am looking forward to designing her album. I am blessed with the best, most beautiful brides.

Kelly’s mother-in-law, Tobe, made the dress that Charlie’s and Kelly’s daughter, McKinney wore. The rosette on the sash is 150 yeas old, and was on Kelly’s mother’s wedding dress. Love it!

The hanky that was around Kelly’s bouquet belonged to her grandfather. The ring attached was Charlie’s dad’s wedding ring.

I’ve seen couples pour sand into a jar at several weddings to signify their union. These guys took the symbolism to a whole new level. Charlie has three sons. To represent the joining of their families, they all had different colored sand, and poured them in, one at a time. My eyes were pouring tears. Do you have any idea how hard it is to shoot with tear filled eyes? I’m a master of it. 🙂 It was such a beautifully touching part of their ceremony. After they were all done, the boys hugged Kelly, each of them with such loving arms. I was toast I’ll tell ya. Toast.

Reception fun!
The wooden box that the cake was on belonged Charlie’s dad. He used the box to hold his shoe polish. It was a surprise for Charlie.
Kelly’s godfather gave her away. He and her father were best friends since 2nd grade. He taught her how to drive and ride a motorcycle. As you can tell from this picture, was a complete card.
