Coming to you on the blog today is Celine and Andrew's October wedding, which is a serious contender for one of the most fun weddings I have ever had the chance to not only photograph but also attend. Mostly because October is one the most EXCITING months in a calendar - carved pumpkins, leaves, Halloween...you get the picture. AND it was by the water....there was everything to love about this beautiful fall day. Not only that, but the wedding attire the wedding party donned for the occasion was season perfect. The wedding colors were Navy blue, Burgundy with touches of Burnt Orange and Forest Green were visible through everything from the flowers to the decoration.
From 12 in the early afternoon when we started the day to 9 in the evening, it was a non-stop stream of laughing, dancing and merrymaking. (Do people say “merrymaking” still? If not, this wedding is def bringing it back).
These two lovebirds met during college and have clearly been having the time of their lives ever since. And, as you’d expect, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were just as much fun. I mean, there are wedding parties… and then there are wedding PARTIES.
Mingled in with the uproarious events (like dancing with a pizza box)were some genuinely sweet moments, tooo. I loved when some of Andrew's favorite songs played and everyone gathered around them and belted out the words and did little groove moves. Just goes to show that fun and love go together really, really well. I asked Celine prior to the big day what 3 words would she use to describe her day. She said " Fun, laid-back, and colorful." I think they nailed it, don't you?
Congrats again, Celine and Andrew, and is it too much to ask that you put me on the invite list for any of your future get-togethers…? Ha!.
