Rob and Kelly were married on October 31st, (HALLOWEEN!)
Rob is my first cousin, and the closest thing I have to a little brother. When, his twin sister married three years ago, I was the maid of honor. This time I traded in that role, for the one of photographer; one I'm admittedly more comfortable with, but I know if I don't post some photos from the wedding soon, I'll be flooded with emails and phone calls from my relatives. Patience is not a trait that runs in my family. So, this post is to pacify my family, who I know are eagerly awaiting.
Although, the temperature had been in the 30's earlier in the week, things had warmed up by Friday and we had a beautiful fall day. There ceremony took place outdoors under a gazebo, then everyone moved inside for a casual reception at Gilbert's Party Barn.
The wedding took place, quite literally down the road (or gravel path) from where I grew up. My parent's house quickly became the meeting point for everyone before the wedding. I ended up doing quite a bit of these pre-ceremony shots of the bride and groom there.
Kelly even got ready in my old bedroom, which photographed much better than I ever would've imagined. Then again, after living there for nearly 20 years, I guess I you could say I was familiar with the location.
(For some reason I LOVE this first image of Kelly. It reminds me of something you would see in a magazine, although, I suspect my family won't love it as much as I do.)
Admittedly, these are more of the artsy-shots. I'm still working on the rest, and to any family out there reading this, I'll let you know as soon as the rest are finished. I hope these will tide you over in the mean time. Enjoy
