When you are shooting the wedding of your brand new office manager who happened to be a bride before she became your office manager, you better hit it out of the park. So here’s to crossing our fingers, closing our eyes tight, and hoping we did just that.
Summer has spent some of the last few weeks at our office getting oriented for her new job with us so we have had the opportunity to hear of some wedding planning issues that tend to creep at the last minute. Brides, I feel for you. As stressful as it may have become, it all seemed to dissolve away when the day came. I’m sure it’s part good planning, and part just letting things go, but the day seemed effortless despite the usual craziness surrounding family portraits, but hey, how you are going to avoid that?
Having an outdoor ceremony in October is a bit of a gamble, but if it pays off, it pays off big, and it did for Summer and Justin. The weather was perfect all day and by the time the ceremony came around, the temperature was very comfortable and the light was perfect, cool, late evening light that seems to flatter everything. After the ceremony, we got a bit of twilight time with just the couple with the vintage Caddy which was a lot of fun. From there, we headed over to Greystone all for a great dinner and a kickin’ reception.
We’ll start off with some of Genevieve’s favorites:
