Close to a month ago a good friend of mine got married (you may remember their engagement pictures here). She married a wonder Christian man that was raised in a nurturing Christian home, same as she. I was honored when Danae asked if I'd be interested in taking "candid" pictures throughout their day - getting ready all the way to the reception. And I willingly accepted. Because face it, I'm a sucker for all things weddings.
The day was filled with friends, family, God, and of course love. So without any further ado, may I present to you Danae and Adam - the Candids Edition.
Hair - check! Make-up - check! Beaming bride - check!
Nothing like a little help getting, ahem, garments clasped. (Danae, I'm working on removing Janelle from the picture for you, it's proving to be a little more time consuming than I thought.)
The 3 bridesmaids. Thank goodness for those shawls. It was a chilly November day!
The dashing groom, soaking in the sun, anxiously awaiting his bride.
Danae ready for their "first look". Doesn't she look so happy!?!
The flowers were beautiful! The colors were great and so fallish.
The entire wedding party. Notice Danae had a "bridesman", that's her brother Hans.
They've kissed. It's official. They're husband and wife. I love the cross stain glass window above them.
How cute and quaint is the Hickman Community Church?
Speaking of feet, check out the bottom of my dress and my 9" heels! Man they were tall, not quite 9", but a good 4" I'm guessing.
Adam and his band/group of friends had a little jam session. I love/hate that the only picture I got of Adam with his head up is on the video recorder. Makes for a cool shot, but not as cool other shots.
I love, love, love pictures when photographers place the wedding rings in/on unique items. I'm gonna have to work on this more, but not bad for my first time...
