It’s been a while since I posted a wedding, dear Reader! I have been obsessed with building up the newborn and child photography part of my business – but never fear, my brides and grooms-to-be, I haven’t forgotten you! I have a number of weddings I want to share with you, but I thought I would start with my most recent wedding. (My photog friend Amanda would be proud of me for setting aside my Obsessive Compulsive Chronilogical Blogging Disorder.)
Maureen and Art were blessed with a beautiful afternoon of sunny weather for their ceremony at the outdoor garden at Phipps Conservatory; the weather forecast was threatening rain, but it held off just for them!
Aren’t this little lego bride and groom adorable??
Maureen’s dress was simply stunning. There is no other word for it.
Their wedding was full of sweet little details.
They had their rings custom made by a local artist – how cool is that?
Art and his son had awesome Lego cuff links.
Love this reaction to seeing Maureen in her dress.
A moment between mother and daughter.
Before the wedding, Maureen told Art that she just got a “simple dress”. I loved the look on his face when he saw his gorgeous bride walking down the aisle in that amazing dress. Wowza!
Art’s brother explained the meaning of a special part of the ceremony, something akin to the unity candle or a sand ceremony, but truly unique. He began by telling the story of how Maureen, Art, and his kids went on a hike together, and they each found the perfect stick. They took them home and decorated them, adding ribbons with words and phrases written on them, like favorite pastimes, memories, and other things that were meaningful to them personally. Then they placed them in an urn full of sand, until the wedding day when they would bind the sticks together.

My second shooter, Jenny, was so thoughtful to bring coins for Maureen and Art to make a wish in the fountain. I am sure it brought back some fond memories for Jenny, who had her wedding ceremony in the Broderie Room, photographed by yours truly. :) Thanks, Jenny!
One more look at Maureens fabulous dress, which had so many cool details.
Jenny and I took a moment to have a delightful caffeinated beverage. :D
I just love this shot of a romantic kiss in the pouring rain.
Maureen and Art, thank you for allowing me to capture your amazing wedding day! (((Hugs))) Sandy
