Carol and Bonar’s wedding was a special one for us since they’ve been our friends for quite some time and I was standing as one of her bridesmaids. It’s tricky having bridesmaid duty and shooting at the same time. You have to be conscious of making sure your dress doesn’t wrinkle or your hair and make-up doesn’t mess up in the process. Besides the getting ready, the bride and groom portraits, and details that I love, Jacob and Josh handled pretty much the rest of the wedding and did a fantastic job.
I remember dress shopping was a huge ordeal for me where I went to multiple shops and was indecisive along the entire process. Carol, on the other hand, found her dress the first place we went to. Of course, it helps when pretty much everything she put on looked gorgeous on her and the dress she decided on was no exception.
Tried something new and merged some of the getting ready photos. What do you think? Viola from Spencer Malay, who did our hair for my wedding, did all our hair for Carol’s wedding as well. We love her.
The venue had a lot of beautiful areas landscaped with ponds, fountains, and bridges, but we pulled them aside and took them into the woods since we know how much Carol loves nature.
But we did take a few by the fountain since Bonar’s dad loved the fountain so much. His favorite shot of the day:
This is probably the trickiest lighting situation at this time of day because of the beams above. There was a split second where they were in the shade.
