This past Thursday we had the honor of spending the day with James & Erin; and wouldn’t you know it – it was their wedding day as well! The Otis & James caravan of Love pulled into glorious Stillwater, MN, on an absolutely beautiful day!
Before we get too far with this, we need to backtrack to the day before (which was not such a lovely day – click here for an article about the storms.) As we hunkered down at our friends house (click here to see our friends), surrounded by hundereds of candles (seriously – when in need of a candle, just mention this to Deb as she can provide about 219 in four minutes flat), it didn’t look too good for the wedding the next day.
The high winds, downed power lines and torrential rains made it hard for us to escape our confines, so James actually had to conduct our last meeting with the Bride & Groom via candlelight and cellphone – bridging the gap from the 19th and 21st century. Old Otis & James didn’t even know how they were going to be able to charge their many batteries in preparation for the wedding (drama, suspense, etc.)
They awoke on Thursday to find that the power was back, and the skies were clearing. By the time we made it to Stillwater, they day had revealed itself to be glorious. When we made it to the actual location – we knew that this day was going to be absolutely beautiful!
We had a great group of people to work with, a beatiful couple, a beautiful day, and a beautiful location! Well, seeing as how this post is running at about 1000 words, I will stop running my mouth – or moving my fingers – and let’s just get on to some snaps from the day. James & Erin – thank you, and congratulations! Enjoy!
