our wedding: family and wedding party portraits

Of course I have to share our “formal” wedding portraits with you. Unfortunately, the rain came back shortly after we began, so we didn’t get as many family portraits as I would have liked. After running to find shelter and touch up after the rain, we resumed with photos of the wedding party and later with the bride and groom portraits. Our wedding party somehow gathered all of these umbrellas from miscellaneous guests to use as props (the white umbrella I’m holding is actually the photographers’ light reflecting umbrella ;p). Hopefully it’s not tooΒ noticeable that we were shook up a bit by the rain (rain and our hair was not a good combination).

We had two photographers for our wedding (Jerry and Jona Blackwell, husband and wife of Forever Photography Studio, as I’ve mentioned before). The left was taken by Jona, and the right by Jerry. It’s so interesting to see that though they work collaboratively, each has a different style of photos (both beautiful!).

For whatever reason, we always have photos of Michael standing off by himself. So naturally, we had to get one at our wedding.

From left to right: Alex (best man), Michael, and Frank. Whitney has known Alex since 7th grade and Michael since high school (together they formed “The Tripod”). Frank was his roommate for three years in college (and mine as well for a year).

Our improvised attempt at “Bridesmaids” (we know those aren’t the right poses). ;p

Next up, “The Reception” (finally)!
