Well, the new year if finally upon us. Kristin and I were able to spend the last night of 2009 celebrating with Jeremy and Anessa. The day went very smoothly. Due to the weather and the timing of the event, we spent our time shooting in all the nooks and crannies of the ceremony and reception location. With such a loving couple and great guests, it was no surprise that the evening was so wonderful. One thing that did pleasantly take me off guard was a speech by Anessa. Anessa, a French teacher, gave a thank you to her French speaking guests. She gave it with so much emotion, I could understand clearly what she was saying without being able to decipher a word of the French. I learned a lot about communication that evening, and I am so thankful we were able to be apart of their great day!
The pic below is one of my favorites from the evening. I wish I were able to put it on the blog full size. It has a depth to it that really draws you in.
In my opinion, the best man would have earned his title on the merits of the look in the pic below alone.
Of course, it being a New Year's party as well, we had to have a little silliness.
