This has probably been the most anticipated blog post of 2010. Shannon and Joseph are a great couple, good-natured and fun-loving, and quite frankly we were really excited about shooting their wedding. In fact, a last-minute planning session we had outside in the pouring rain two nights before was more fun than it otherwise would have been without their positive attitudes. The wedding was great, the weather was perfect, and a great time was had by all! There was a doggie in a tux, a golf cart race, and all kinds of other fun stuff. By the way, let me just take a moment to say that The Stone Barn at Whitney Farms Golf Club is a beautiful location and The Groove Junkies did a great job at keeping the energy up all night. And now on to the photos…
We’ll start with a few shots before the ceremony. Shannon is simply glowing here!
I love these kinds of shots while the bride is getting ready.
Sorry Shannon’s Mom, the expressions while pinning on the veil here are too great to pass up (and of course all in good fun)…
Such cool details. The ladies and men were rocking these really sweet brown leather Pumas. I think I want a pair.
A couple of fun, classic, in-front-of-the-fireplace portraits, perfectly suitable for framing.
The girls kept telling me they wanted fun portraits… so I don’t quite know what they’re doing here but it looks like fun to me.
By the way, I should have said it above but these autumn style bouquets were really cool.
The Stone Barn is gorgeous. This looks exactly like something out of Brides magazine.
Time to get serious for the ceremony… and we get to see Joe for the first time.
It was truly a beautiful and sweet ceremony.
Ladies and gentlemen… our bride and groom… rock on!
After the ceremony we took a few minutes to head up to the highest point on the golf course. Between the gorgeous wedding party and scenery like this we got some really stunning images. 800 pixels on this blog doesn’t do them justice.
I don’t know where you get a doggie tux from but it is awesome.
Oh hi ladies. Lookin’ great!
Shannon, working it.
Rock that wedding bling and represent!
A few more detail shots…
Our caravan of golf carts as we drove around the golf course.
Someone went off road, to the right of the tree. I think I know who it was, but that will remain a secret.
A few quick shots of our bride and groom. I’m telling you, these two are a ton of fun.
Joe asked me to make sure I got a few shots of The Groove Junkies as the rock stars that they are. It wasn’t hard to pull off.
Shannon decided to attack this thing with some karate moves.
So I’ll just wrap this up with a good old-fashioned hug.
Last but not least, I wanted to share a web-friendly slideshow which we developed as a video DVD (widescreen optimized, of course) for Shannon and Joe. Make sure to crank up your speakers.
So there we have it. Thanks guys for letting us photograph your wedding. We really appreciate the opportunity and hope to see you again soon!
