Photographing weddings makes me happy so you can imagine how thrilled I was to photograph the wedding of two of my best friends. But, there was one other reason why I was excited about Scott and Marie’s wedding. Not only did they ask me to photograph their wedding but Marie also asked me to be bridesmaid! It might sound a little whacky but, hey, I’m kind of a whacky gal. So, how did I do both you ask? Well, with the help of an awesome and great second photographer (Thanks Edith!) who took over for the ceremony and some of the group shots. It was certainly an experience doing both but I’m so glad I got to REALLY be a part of their unforgettable day.
It was such a beautiful, fun wedding. They decided to do two things that I love at weddings… A lot of DIY and vintage details. Marie asked all of us bridesmaids to find vintage 1950′s light blue dresses. (I loved mine and plan to wear it a ton!) All the beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres were made by Marie’s talented sister Sarah (who also designed all custom stamps used for everything from the invitations to the place cards). And, I think everyone had such a great time.
Scott and Marie: Needless to say but I’m over the moon for you guys and love hearing you refer to each other as “husband” and “wife.” You are two of the most genuine, sincere, fun-loving and loyal friends I know and I wish you so much joy. Time to plan our next trip travel buddies! Where to next? ; ) Love ya guys!
A wedding post wouldn’t be complete without photos from the ceremony. But since I was in the wedding, I thought I’d share a few of Edith’s photos from the ceremony. PLUS, I made all those awesome paper flower pom-poms!
Can you find me among my bevy of beautiful bridesmaids? I loved how all of our dresses looked altogether!
Scott and Marie opted to have the dinner catered by the delectable Komodo food truck. A good call indeed!
This may be my favorite shot of the whole day! We put Marie’s ballerina background to good use with some awesome trampoline shots!
And, lastly had to include some snaps of me with the bride and my handsome bow-tie-wearing hubby!
