Well, hi there, everybody!
(Or at least to the two people that still check this blog. :))
If you haven’t noticed (cough cough) there has been a dearth of posts lately.
So I am going to try to remedy that.
Are you ready?
Good. Glad you’re on board with me.
All two of you.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of second shooting my first wedding. It was my cousin’s wedding, and it was AWESOME! Most of the time I focused on getting candid shots, not any of the formal shots, since the other photographer was getting them. So that means that there are not that many “formal” shots to share with you all. But I hope you enjoy the ones I do have!
We helped with reception hall set-up before the ceremony
They used these cool/weird water ball thingies. They were great to photograph!
Hello there! Just affirming that I am here, cause you won’t see me a whole lot.
My cousin and my grandparents
Mother of the groom
My aunt (mother of the bride) and two of my many awesome cousins!
Junior bridesmaid (and another of my awesome cousins) Hannah
Exchange of vows
I LOVE her face! Isn’t she so sweet?!!
Hannah and Meiling
The flower girls – they were so cute! You’ll be seeing more of them.
My cousin Mark. We had this thing going all day, where I was getting goofy photos of him. I still need to finish the slideshow of funny photos. It’s almost done!
Bride, mother, and sister
See? What did I tell you? Cute or WHAT?!?
The main photographer was having them make happy/fun faces. As you can see, Hannah took to jumping up and down.
They left the church amid bubbles
Can you *tell* they’re sisters?
My aunt (not the mother of the bride) makes a piñata for just about every family occasion. The wedding was no exception!
She even made a fancy bat.
Scott egging on the crowd
And that’s the end of that.
Another tradition: the wearing of the piñata
Almost everyone who had been there for the piñata (family and bridal party) had glow sticks.
Mom, Grandma Jeane, and my aunt (the one that made the piñata)
Greeting at the door
These two were so cute. They started dancing, then were break dancing, and now are slow dancing.
Cutting of the cake (see the glow stick bracelet?)
Head table (minus the bride and groom – hey, where did they go?)
At the end of the first slow song, the music changed, and the bride and groom did a choreographed dance to several songs. They danced for almost 10 minutes! It was a total BLAST to watch!
They ended with a slow song
Groom and mother
Bride and father
Next they had all the couples come to the dance floor and dance. The DJ then had couples leave the dance floor, by saying “Anyone married less than ___ has to leave the dance floor.” It was pretty awesome, because my grandparents were the last ones there. All because of them.
When my grandparents were the only ones dancing, a bunch of us made a circle around them
And then the dancing started
Scott and Sarah
Us :) (Thanks to my dad for grabbing this shot)
The dollar dance – my dad and Sarah
Noah and Sarah
Drake and Sarah have always been special friends, since they share a birthday. Drake used to hang out with her when he was little.
And you want to see one of the goofy pictures?
Too. Much. Wedding.
