After photographing more and more weddings, its a nice treat to be off-duty and play “guest” every now and then. This was the case when good family friends of ours got married this past weekend. I grew up with Lindsay’s family, and had the pleasure of meeting Steve when I photographed their engagement session. Two of the nicest people I know got married, and it was beautiful!
One of my favorite things about weddings is how people personalize them. Lindsay did a great job with this, and I’m glad I got to play a little part in it! Each guest received a photo of the couple (from their engagement session with me) telling them which table they were seated at. There was a larger, matching photo on the table as part of the centerpiece display, and guests took home their smaller print as a keepsake.
The next cool way they personalized their reception, was by including the three minute Snap Cinema Fusion Video we had made for them! After the bridal party was introduced, the DJ directed everyone’s attention to the projector screen which played the video about how Steve and Lindsay met, dated, and got engaged. As it ended, Mr. & Mrs. were introduced to great applause! It was really a great moment to be there as a friend, and as the photographer! I’m sure my dad (who filmed and edited the video) felt similarly.
Here are a few of my other favorite moments from your day.
All I can say now, is CONGRATULATIONS LINDSAY AND STEVE and THANK YOU for letting me be a part of your once in a lifetime day! Wishing you many years of happiness and great memories.
All my love,
