It’s a blog entry like this where I wish it could have a sound track playing in the back ground. What song? “We like to party.” Yes, the Venga Boys are old school but I’m pretty sure this bride and groom are the only two that can keep up with it. (: They are an absolute riot! I loved watching them go absolutely crazy on the dance floor. At one point the groom even pulled me to the side to say: “Sit back and enjoy the show.” And enjoy I did. It was great!
One highlight for sure was the garter…I know I know…It’s never anyone’s favorite part of the night (Well, except for the grooms) (: buuuut this was no ordinary garter experience. The bride and groom being the two most fun people ever thought they’d play a trick on the guests. They pretended that they couldn’t find the garter on her and eventually they switched roles having the bride be the one to seductively take it off of the grooms leg!
These two know how to laugh…I’m confident that in the highs and lows of life they will be the first to pick the other up with a light hearted joke and a genuine smile. (:
Something else that made me smile…Seeing how much Brent & Lisa’s friends and family love them. Often times, in the chaos of a wedding day I find bridesmaids self-absorbed in mirrors doing their own make-up, their own hair, their own agenda. Not this group…They love Lisa, (I can’t blame them!) and made sure it was the most special day for her. And the guys…they are as true as they come. It’s easy for guys to skim over the wedding day with the assumption that the groom knows how tight they are and it doesn’t really have to be said. Again, not this group. These guys are the best of friends and they truly were there for Brent on this day and I know they’ll be there for him in the future.
So…I should probably wrap up this wedding novel. (: I am truly glad that I got to witness such a day as this.
Side note photo wise…Right when I walked up to this little church (that’s been a part of the bride & groom’s lives since they started dating when they were like 13!) I was inspired to do something different. I’ve wanted to do some vintage work for some time now it just wasn’t the time but this was. And I’m pretty stoked about it. (:
I often times joke that my husband is so Italian he’d put parmesan on his cereal if I’d let him. For once, hes been topped. Jackie and Vinnie are just the cutest second generation Italians I’ve seen. We took pictures in the same same neighborhood and even on the same street that their parents immigrated to. How cool is that?
Despite every possible distraction and loud noise known to man, these two manage to make everything seem serene. From construction workers to people literally going and sitting in my shot, they were super flexible and made what could have been a tricky situation completely work. I think their wedding will be a piece of cake. (:
