I met Sarah and Marty at a local coffee shop. We sat on extremely uncomfortable metal chairs, and kept laughing at how no amount of readjustment would make our butts and backs feel less numb.
With Sarah being a former beauty queen, I knew that my job would be a piece.of.cake. And damn, was I right. Her effortless beauty, combined with Marty’s humor and epic dance moves, made for the best.day.ever.
Their day started off with an exchange of meaningful gifts, including the groomsmen receiving personalized socks (scroll below to see what I mean), and Marty receiving a gift from Sarah that made him blush. Sarah also gave her mom a handkerchief that read “Keep your shit together”. I knew that this day was destined to be great.
During the ceremony, a little snake made itself at home in a nearby puddle to watch the two get married. Their sweet dog, Berkeley, totally stole the show…and I 100% wanted to take her home…as is my reaction for all dogs at weddings.
The evening continued with amazing speeches, complete with life size portraits from embarrassing stages of the grooms bad hairstyle choices. When the dance floor opened up, I eagerly awaited Marty’s notorious hip thrusting moves. I literally had a part on my timeline labeled “Marty’s hip thrusting, time TBD”. He finally whipped out these moves during the second to last song, and it.was.a.TREAT.
Sarah and Marty, thank you thank you thank you. Your day was already so meaningful, but now that coronavirus has eliminated the rest of my spring wedding season, I’m holding onto the fun memories from your day until I can photograph another one.
