When I look at my 2011 calendar, I am overwhelmed with this huge sense of gratitude for the clients I get to work with this year. Happy, fun, artistic and altogether delightful people. This wedding….well, this couple…they truly kicked off my season in a glorious way. First of all, the weather was so unbelievably warm and sunny….it was on the miraculous side. I mean, perfect weather in February? So God smiled down on them from the start. And speaking of smiles, Jennifer gives them out freely and liberally to everyone. That would have to be one of the first things you’d notice about her. She glows all of the time, not just on her wedding day. So….Jennifer never gave me a list of pictures, not one request or order. She just had the time of her life and let it all unfold to be documented naturally and easily. Can I get an “AMEN”?! : )
It’s not just Brett and Jennifer that made this wedding so special. We had our dream team, a.k.a. Luke Wilson Special Events, involved from the day they were engaged. Luke and Megan did what they do so well, that is, make it look effortless. But even better, since they were such good friends of the bride, I got to photograph LWSE breaking it down on the dance floor later that evening. It was a treat!! Maybe they’ll forgive me for posting all those dancing shots later.
All the event rock stars were in attendance. The floral designs were by Katie Bell of Timeless Designs; Fish catered the event; Lowndes Grove served as ceremony and reception site with help from the Patrick Properties staff; Luke Wilson came out of culinary retirement with his first cake creation in several years (yum!!); Darrell Connelly assisted with photography and provided the fun photo booth; Pastor Greg Mason presided over the ceremony; wedding musicians were the Bob Williams Duo; and the dj was from Lee Edwards Entertainment.
There were so many goodies that you’ll have to stay tuned for Part 2 later today!
