Shannon and Tony were married a couple of weeks ago in an amazing outdoor ceremony. Tiffany (our second shooter and office manager) was able to shoot with me so that Kristin could be at home with the boys for the day. It was toasty outside, but with plenty of shade and happy guests it was ideal. The aspect of their wedding that most presented itself to everyone there was a sense of fun. Tony was the life of the party and Shannon was joyfully sharing that fun with him. It was a great time as you shall see.
From my experience with Tony he seemed like a humorous fellow, as well as a tough individual - so to catch him crying as his bride approached was certainly a delight. When I am able to "catch the moment" like that I like to think of myself as a mighty hunter in our digital age...only for a minute though.
The location was the best!
The ringbearers actually stood up front for the whole ceremony - I was impressed - and Tiffany and I got to catch them at some great times.
Although Tony was the primary football fan of the couple - Shannon was all about showing her skills.
To say that Tony was a funny guy would be an understatement - you can see in Shannon's face how he makes her laugh along with most everyone else around.
This is the first time I have witnessed the best man carrying the groom.
I love this next one.
I wanted everyone to notice the shoes to the bottom left. At the beginning of the day they were spotless and here they had a few scuffs on them. I could have cleaned them up in photoshop, but they reminded me of how marriage actually is. I have been married for 8 years now - I found that you will get your "shoes dirty" with the activities of life, but if you still remember "I do" the scuffs will not matter.
This next guy was just too nutty not to include.
There was a little bit of a Martini theme - so everyone was having a bit of fun with it.
But when you mix a martini theme with actual martinis the results can be dangerous!
