They did it. On June 16, 2012, they finally said "I do". Planning a wedding seems to take forever and then suddenly it's over. Without pictures, I dare to say most of it is a blur, especially for the couple. (At least that's how much of it was for me...I won't age myself by telling you how many years ago.)
I was "Aunt Gail" this past Saturday. That was my job so that I could truly enjoy the day (plus keep three kiddos in line, my daughter being the adorable flower girl, of course). But, if anyone thought I'd be able to go to my niece's wedding and not take at least some pictures, they don't know me at all. All from my seat or weaving in and out of the crowd, I didn't use flash at all so as not to distract and I certainly wanted to be respectful to the other photographers/videographers. Official wedding photography by Soul Echo Studios. )Alex, whom I have met before and who's wife I went to HS with, is truly a nice guy and gifted photographer.) Amy called me a ninja after seeing some of these shots. Ha! I like that. I have been thinking of new business names. How does "The Nikon Ninja" sound? Tag line: "I can see you, but you can't see me". Haha! Totally kidding.
Okay, you came here to see pics. Enough of me.
Not wanting a traditional wedding guest sign-in book, Amy and Greg opted for a lay-flat book which I designed for them using some of their favorite images from their engagement photoshoot at Vizcaya and Coconut Grove (CocoWalk). It turned out beautifully and was the perfect alternative. (Seriously, where were lay-flat books when I got married? Photography has changed sooo much...style and products! I demand a re-do, but I'll keep the same husband. ;)
Here's where things get hilarious. I was super stealthy trying to weave in and out of people to get these shots. I was determined not to miss the hilarity of this show. It seriously was a show. Check out the lady laughing in the background. Even she thought it was funny!
They are ridiculously cute...and they are my family. :)
Love you, two!
Now I'm looking forward to Kristin and Federico's wedding in September! Thanks again for booking me! Truly an honor. Can't wait!
