On Friday I was so excited about shooting at Timberlodge at Arrowhead Golf Course for the first time. I had driven by and knew that it was a pretty location, and I was just hoping for good weather. Mother Nature was good to us – sunny blue skies, not a drop of rain, and temperatures below 80. Right on.
We started out at St. Mary’s in Swormville, where I was surprised to find a beautiful new AIR-CONDITIONED church! The last time I shot at St. Mary’s it was 3 years ago in the old church building which was on the dark side and HOT. The new church is gorgeous – the light is awesome, the pews are this gorgeous wood, and I was so happy to shoot there.
After the church, we went straight to Arrowhead and got our poses on. I apologize to the groomsman (Matt?) who asked to do a pyramid… I forgot. Next time.
Yes, there is a story behind this photo, but I thought it was just as funny uncaptioned. Thank you for your help, Rob.
Cupcake tower – brownies in cupcake form! Delicious.
Why yes, that IS a barcode on the sleeve of Steve’s tux. Why yes, he DID know it was there. When one of the groomsmen pointed it out to him during the ceremony, he just shrugged. Steve struck me as that kind of guy, and you know what? That’s not all bad.
Steve & Emily did their first dance to a song played & sung by Emily’s maternal grandparents – that’s them in the background.
When the dancing started, it got going fast. The band that played (I forget the name) did a great job of getting people out on the floor.
Sometimes “drunk” just isn’t a descriptive enough word. This guy was uber drunk. He started talking to me and asking if I was having a good time. I said yes, and he said something about there not being anyone to dance with, and I said, “The floor is full of pretty girls!” He said, “Yeah, but like 95% of them are my cousins.” Bummer, dude.
Steve plays bass in this band that took over when the hired band took a break – think Ramones & stuff like that. It was definitely a departure from the wedding music I’m used to, and it was a welcome break!!
I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of the patio as I left – ISO 6400 and some definite post-tweaking, but I like it anyway:
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Duckworth! I wish you much, much happiness!
