I met Kristin and Dave just 7 short months ago. How did we meet? Well, it was over a mutual love of ………..Owls. Yep. Owls. You see, Kristin teaches the Library class that my daughter attends. While registering Phoenix,( my daughter) for class, she saw that my email address was Mamaowl photography. She looked at my website. She liked what she saw. But had my my photography name been anything else, she might not have chosen me! ( Except for Little Panda Bear Photography, Kristin loves Panda bears almost as much as owls). As I’ve gotten to know Krisin these last few months, I’ve fallen in love with her style, her sweet and caring heart, and her creative spirit. She has done design work for years, and she has an adorable shop on ETSY. She is a wonderful Library teacher, my daughter, and all the kids adore her. And Dave, well, he is just as sweet as she is. The two balance each other out perfectly.
I had big dreams about their wedding day, involving lots of gorgeous summer light, and big chester county fields. But alas, dreams don’t always come true. July 8th 2011, was probably one of the worst weather days of the whole summer thus far. TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS. But it can’t be sunny all the time. Rain does happen. And it did NOT put a damper on this day. Thanks to lots of creative whimsical touches put together by Kristin, everything was beautiful. We got creative, we worked it out, and most important of all, two very special and dear to my heart people got married.
Kristin and Dave, love you two. Congrats.
Kristin’s dress was gorgeous. Her headpiece, handmade herself. Flowers, also, designed and created by her. Gorgeousness.
What do you do when there is a giant hot tub in your hotel room?
Get in it of course.
This one is gonna be hard to top for me for a while. Love it!!!
Did I tell you I had a fantastic assistant at this wedding? Well I did!! Miss Megan got these shots in the Lobby while I was with the boys. Love em.
The ceremony was supposed to be outside, but because of the rain it was moved inside. Some shots of the boys before the wedding.
Suspenders and newsboy caps. Love.
Love these ones. The guests all had streamers. Kristin said she did for the pictures. Love her!
Still raining come portrait time. I was able to get some shots of Kristin and Dave outside, but we did something a little different with the Bridal party.
Megan and I worked hard making some fun props that we were hoping we got to use. We did!!
Loved the girls matching cocktail rings, a gift from Kristin. She proposed they be the maids in her wedding with the ring!! What a great idea!!
We did get outside for some sweet shots of the Bride and Groom. There was a small window when it was not raining!!
It was a gorgeous Day, despite the rain. Kristin and Dave, I was so honored, love you both so much.
Hope you guys are living it up, surfing and mountain climbing in Hawaii!!!!
Thanks to my assistant Megan, you rock girlfriend.
