Well.. it's officially the day we are getting married. Wow. Today was a fun day getting everything set up and it's actually still going. At least, I should say, the girls are still going. I decided to let them do their thing and focus on some of the photos I captured from the day.
The day started at Rooster's Bistro, such a great breakfast. If you haven't been, definitely check it out. After some eggs, sausage, potatoes, toast and a couple cups of coffee we were ready to tackle the day. It was then off to Walmart for some odds and ends, and eventually arriving at Cora's house, where the wedding is eventually taking place. Luckily we ended up getting a great deal on a big tent for the backyard which was set up by A to Z Rentals who did a fantastic job. Jamie, Cora's grandson, was the boss the whole time. He helped carry poles and ultimately told the workers what was on his mind the entire time.
Once the tent was set up, Anne, Cora and Jordan worked on the wedding arch. The final touches need to be added tomorrow but I think it looks stunning. I can't wait to stand underneath it with Anne tomorrow. The next stop was a few more odds and ends around town and then home. We only had a quick break before we headed off to the hall to set up as much as we could. The whole room really came together, and with a few things left to do today, I think it's going to turn out perfect.
For the whole day I decided to use my X-T1 paired with the 16mm and 35mm. Just so simple and fun to use with so many keeper images. It will be extremely painful to not be able to take photos of my own wedding today but I'm sure I will find a way to snap a few of the beautiful bride. Either way I'm sure Tony and Chris will do an amazing job taking photographs and video for us.
I simply cannot to wait to marry Anne. I'm a lucky guy to have ended with such a wonderful woman. Plus, this means, I have a model to photograph for the rest of my life. :)
Stay tuned for photos of the wedding in the coming weeks!
