This past weekend, I got to visit a new state to capture the magical day of Aj ... Becky. New Hampshire is beautiful and I met a lot of great people. Thank you all for your hospitality, and sharing such a fun weekend with me.
Here is a little slideshow that captures the day - Aj ... Becky wishing you every happiness, hope we see you soon.
Some folks are having trouble with the video below... so here is a link to where it is stored! Enjoy
This I have to say was an amazing wedding to be a part of and the best four day celebration of a union that I have ever been to in Iowa! So many stories behind the long wait for this day to happen and I am so grateful to my friends Mark and Marie who got me to be a part of this day.
Meet the wonderful brides.
The smooth old car in mint condition that drove them to the ceremony.
That is the mighty Mississippi in the background! This is Pam's immediate family.
The wedding party...
Sara and Pam with Sara's folks....
Their beloved pup! I was bummed he was not the ring bearer... but I think it would have been too much pressure for him!
The ceremony was so great as everyone was involved and the story of this couple and the things that are so important to them and life were all bought into the day.
I just love this shot!!!
Yup it took a while to get that ring on that finger!! Ouch!
Yup this is Sara's immediate family.... all 75 (approx!!)
And finally comfy shoes and party time!
Music by Sara's amazingly talented nephew Tim Stop (https://www.facebook.com/tim.stopulos)
And these people knew how to dance and party!!!
Sara and Pam thank you so much for including me in such a magical day.... truly an amazing four days... Love you, can't wait to see you here in Montana. Crackle
This is a short photo video of the wedding day if you want more!!
I have not been photographing weddings in order to spend time with my family. However every so often its just too hard to say no! This was one such special day I could not miss out on.
Meet the lovely Rylea and Kory who chose Fort Missoula as the spot for their special day, and handily they organized some beautiful weather too!
Who can resist the train?!! I just have had this Mark Knofler song going through my head ever since, now I need to go back and find that song and put it to these images or build a series that illustrates the story of the song...
Love the classy groom!
The gorgeous bride!
Thank you Rylea and Kory for having me there on this special day, I hope the honeymoon was awesome and I wish you all the best for the future! Talk to you soon! Crackle
John and Monica got married in the beautiful 9 mile valley.
This was such a great day - lots of handmade decorations and a feeling of friends and family coming together to truly support the next step in John and Monica's relationship. Both the bride and the groom just glowed!
The nine mile.
Such cool table placings all handmade by Monica.
Chillaxing before the ceremony.
Delicious cupcakes from Bernices
And my favorite band played which was truly awesome! Tom Catmull and the Clerics
Congratulations John and Monica wishing you much happiness!
Here they are the delightful Lindsey and Dustin who had the most beautiful wedding on a hot hot day but before the smoke rolled in, up Rock Creek. They have known each other for 12 years from college days, but never did they or their friends think they would be a couple. Things changed a few years ago - and the make the most rockin' couple!! Congratulations Lindsey & Dustin!
With their baby Chester.
Who every one sung to and then he sung back!
The light was just gorgeous at the ceremony spot on the river.
The getaway vehicle - had me sprinting to catch up!
Lindsey's little brother Dylan made a great speech.
Who wants cake when you can have ice cream!
The day got away from us so we went back a few days later for some river shots, by then the smoke had rolled in, but it did make the light gorgeous.
Yay Congratulations!!! Wishing you much happiness and joy!
The wedding had a vintage theme so most of these images have had a vintage effect put on them in post production - if you are wondering why my color looks different this time. Just keeping in the style of this great fun wedding.
