Ok guys…I’m first going to start you off with the sweetest shot I took from my sons wedding this past Sept 19th. It was a quick hello and goodbye as we left the day after the festivities to head for Egypt, but we made the very best of our time there. This photo really reflects the old fashioned charm of this outdoor wedding and of course Kates great taste in color…ORANGE!!!
When the official photos come in from the pro photographer, I’ll see if Bry and Kate will let me share them with you….but for now you get to see the wedding through the bizarre and sometimes twisted view of a blind photographer who loves candid shots!!
Here’s another one that is quite respectable if I do say so myself….I took this as they were walking over to the trees to get ready for the ceremony..nothing formal…just 2 beautiful people in love and both so nervous (in a good way) you could feel it through the grass
This is a great shot of the grandmas all lined up…I asked which one was “See No Evil”, “Hear no Evil” , and “Speak No Evil”………not sure if that went over very well but I had a good “inside my brain” belly laugh anyhow. They looked so cute all sitting in a row. Thats my mom in the middle, my ex’s mom to the left (so great to catch up with Barb) and to the right Kates grandma
Mom, I love this one of you!!! Wish the photo were larger
And this is usually how people see me so I decided we needed a respectable photo of the photographer who is Kates cousin
As you can see…….things start getting “candid” really fast
The vows have been taken and Bry is resting against a tree. I caught him in a deep reflective moment. If there were a thought bubble over his head it woudl say “WHERES THE BEER!!!” It was pretty darned toasty out for late September. A beautiful day in the lower 80’s but those suits get hot no matter what the temp when you are getting married
I do believe Steve was either warming up to sing the National Anthem (OH NO) or unplugging his ears from the plane ride
Ok..to keep our own marriage happy as a clam…I need to post a respectable photo of Steve….well a little extra BLING never hurt any photo!!
Of course Bryan couldn’t be left out of the moment so he put on his very best male model pose to showcase Bling Bling!!! That panda was tickled black and white to go to a wedding!!!
Self Portrait time!!!! Kates brother was having fun and taking lots of photos too
OMG …so much like her mom……This is a woman on a Mission. My daughter Liz was so much help to Kate and Bry that day. Her handsome guy Andy’s expression is priceless. He knows as well as I do this is one determined girl when she sets her sights on ANYTHING
My kids ROCK!!! I miss them both so much and photos like this make me miss them all the more. At the risk of publically embarassing both of them…….I Love you to bits~!!!
Left to right is Bryans uncle, “Tom”, Kate, Bryans dad..Jon, Liz,Brys grandma Barbara, and of course BRY!
Now we fast forward to the reception where Bryan and Kate set up a “Photo Booth” on the porch . What a blast!! Everyone got to go in and a camera was on a tripod with a remote control. This one of me and my kids turned out so cute!!! You all were asking about the hulking huge glass necklace I made for the wedding……..well here it is!!! I had to be careful not to bend over too fast for fear of getting a concussion from it before our trip!
More guests taking their turn and Bry and Kate!!
And finally…a super sweet shot that Liz took of Mama Sandra hugging her new daughter! It was a day we will never forget. As I said, I’ll get the links to the official wedding photos and the photobooth albums for you to see all the goodies. I videotaped the entire ceremony too and will post it when I get that uploaded.
Everyone have a super weekend!!! I’ll write more tomorrow and have an announcement to make too!
