I really loved this day. Super chill wedding, really sweet people, ninja turtle cufflinks and amazing family. Thanks to the Martin event center for playing host and to the couple for trusting me with the day.
So, Artemis’ parents are from Greece, and they’re pretty awesome. Her dad is a tailor by trade, and no-one was safe from his tie inspections for the day. But you could see how much he deeply cared- about his trade, about his daughter, about his new son in law and about the day being perfect. His authenticity and emotion were beautiful.
Doug’s mom isn’t typically a big fan of photos. but she worked hard to give me a good smile when I pointed the camera her way and we soon became pretty good friends, I think. 🙂
This next set of photos, the dad seeing his daughter in her dress for the first time… I DARE you to look through them closely w/out a tear…
It was a beautiful, tiny ceremony with only the closest family. The reception later served as the giant party for EVERYONE to come to. I loved the setup of the day- it flowed really nicely.
Someone had trouble sitting still. but that’s ok.
They let me take part in the toast! Now that’s hospitality. Thanks guys.
The dad insisted I take a photo with the couple. 🙂
Doug made this ring box himself. He had to make up a lie and make it up quick when Artemis noticed the bandaids after Doug had been secretly working on it…
We lucked out and had a train go by while we were shooting.
The wedding venue was just down the road from a local brewery, which graciously allowed us to come in and get some shots in their facilities.
There’s no story here. Airstreams are fun. That’s all.
The Martin event space has a sweet hidden speakeasy hangout downstairs. I’m in love with that jukebox.
turtle cake. His reaction to it later is priceless.
It was a classy affair!
One of the employees remarked this was the first super classy wedding he’d seen that had a pizza buffet as the dinner. 🙂
this is my GAME.
These two were running around snapping their own pics the whole night. I’m being directed here and it cracks me up.
Seeing the turtle cake for the first time.
This is the couple with Caitlin & Phil, whose wedding I shot almost exactly a year ago. Without Caitlin and Phil, I wouldn’t have been at this wedding- and I’m so very glad to have been there for both days. 🙂
This man was afraid of neither the camera nor the dance floor.
Some traditional Greek music was played, and these older fellas got out and showed us the moves. It was amazing.
So these two have been best friends for 70 years. They immigrated to the states together. I’d love to shoot a documentary of these guys!
This sweet couple did a traditional Argentian waltz. You’re never too old, guys.
