John & Lisa had such a beautiful wedding! Brittany & I were happy to be a part of their special day. Lisa & several of her girls had their hair & make-up done on site, so we had some extra time with the guys. I don't usually get to photograph the guys getting ready, so it was a fun change for me!
John is our friend, Christy,'s brother. I had bag of things from Jamaica to get to Christy (since she only went one week). In it, we had several bottles of Ting-a Jamaican softdrink. John was pretty excited to see some Ting. :) I had to get this shot to send to Dean, Wesley's dad, since he sent all of the Ting.
These guys were one of the funniest group of guys we have worked with. They were like herding cats, but still funny. Collin was deemed "The Responsible One" right away. See, he even had to dress the other guys! ;)
John picking out his special snack from Panera. You'll have to see the slideshow below to see what the guys tried to do to it!
John & Lisa decided to see each other before the wedding (you can see more pictures of their First Look in the early sneak peek). This is one of the best parts about seeing each other before the wedding-the moments of quiet, alone together, time that you have. This is the only time you have alone all day! Such a sweet moment.
John's groomsmen entered the reception to the A-Team theme song, complete with sunglasses. You'll see sunglasses quite a bit in this post.
While we were waiting on the guys to return (told you they were like herding cats!), we had time to run across the street & let the girls catch up on their reading!
I love this one of Lisa & her parents just before they went down the aisle.
Mr. Mikey was having a fun time during the wedding! :) You'll have to watch the slideshow and see him as photographer!
One last funny shot from the reception-I heard a BUNCH of laughter & commotion & ran over to see this. John's friends were dying to know what was in the football on his Washington Redskins groom's cake. So, John cut it open to find out.
(I have tried numerous times to make this one picture the same size as the rest, but it is not cooperating! Sorry!)
*I didn't include a picture in this post, but you have to watch for the bouquet/garter give away. It was so sweet! They had all of the married couples stand up. Then, they sat down by who had been married one year, ten years, etc. The ones who were married the longest got the bouquet/garter. It was the sweetest thing. Lisa & John talked about how in our culture, it's all about the wedding day & never about the marriage. So true & it's so great to see couples who realize that God intended marriage to be for life.
John & Lisa, thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day!
