Oh oh oh oh oh! That’s the only way I can think to start this blog post. This was just the most amazing day for more reasons than one. First off, it was a big ol’ family affair for Jamie Delaine. November 1st was the wedding of my beautiful cousin Angela to her fiance Darren. To make it even greater, the day’s festivities took place in the church I grew up in! I have probably known more than half of the day’s 200 guests for more than ten years, and was related in some way or another to a quarter of them. Hah! I am still just so honored that Angie, who is a photographer herself, chose me to do the photography for her and Darren’s day. Angie is a huge fan of Autumn, and the day didn’t disappoint. We were just all so, so blessed on Saturday–first of all, the forecast totally, completely called for rain and seen as I’ve yet to had a rainy wedding day, I thought (as I have before!) oh no, here goes! But, the whole family was a-prayin’ and the morning was absolutely beautiful. We photographed portraits before the ceremony and the rain started to come down about ten minutes after we went into the church. So awesome. :)
Don’t you just love this shoe shot? The pattern behind is actually two funky lampshades side-by-side.
These flowers were so fitting with the Autumn day.
The photo on the left is one of my favourites; it was such a true reaction from Angie’s dad the first time he saw her in her dress.
The back of her dress was my favourite.
Angela and Darren chose to have a “First Look” and do all the photos before the ceremony–which always makes the day go sooooo much smoother! She was so excited and so was Darren; adorable to capture.
Doesn’t she look like a stinkin’ model? Ridiculous.
I loved all the lights Angela had hung behind the stage during the ceremony; it was gorgeous for photos. I also looooove this shot; at almost every single wedding my favourite image is the recessional photo of the couple.
