Up next in our flashback series of wedding posts is a visit back to June of last year – the first weekend, to be exact. Now, the only thing that I have ever remembered about the first Saturday in June is that it is always the date for Grand Old Day back in good ol’ Saint Paul, Minnesota. But now, I have another reason to remember the first Saturday in June!
And that reason, you might ask? That reason is that it was the wedding day of a lovely couple that is called Amy & Matt! The Otis & James Caravan of Love loaded on up and headed down to B-Town (that’s Bismarck, for all you squares) so we could join up with their wedding adventure!
As soon as we started taking the sweetlysnaps, we knew it was gonna be a good day, as this wonderful couple and their equally wonderful wedding party was a true joy to work with! Looking back on the day now, the thing that sticks out in my head is the delay that occurred while we were all waiting for the limousine to show up.
We waited a real long time – got a lot of really cool pictures of the wedding party during this time too. It was a beautiful day out, and the sun was shining. After a bit, I sat down on the grass along the side of the church while Jamie was photographing the group. Well apparently the sun & the grass felt too good, as I began to struggle to keep my eyes open. Just as I was about to enter the blissful place that is a nap in the Sun, I heard the familiar voice of Queen James telling me to wake up. Total Buzz Killington. She went on to chastise me about how it is not appropriate to fall asleep during a wedding (she was right.)
I suppose I shouldn’t tell that story, because it makes it seem like we (more like I) are a bunch of napping loafs. No, that’s not the case – we really did wait a long time for that limo, I just had a moment of weakness (damn you…Sun!) As soon as the limo came, I sprang back into action and we all headed to the reception where the good times rolled, I got jacked up on caffeine, and had a most wonderful time! The moral of the story: If you fall asleep at any point during a wedding, expect Jamie to (deservedly) hand your ass to you on a silver platter.
Well, I’ve rambled on too long – it’s time for us to send MuchLove to every one that was a part of this wondrous day – especially Amy & Matt, and to the rest of you out there in Land of Blog – Enjoy!
