I have a lot to share, so I’ve split this wedding’s images into two posts. Here we go!
I have been to some hot places in my life. Africa, Malaysia, Thailand…I remember a morning spent photographing the grounds of the Singapore Botanical Gardens back in 2003 that was so hot I had to change my shirt three times during the day. This is what came to mind as I started the day’s photography for Laura and Ian, because I think it was even hotter and more humid than southeast Asia!
How hot was it? This started off as a bag of gummi bears:
Not as tasty when they are all melted together
Everyone in attendance was in too great of a mood to notice though, and the day went off as one of funnest weddings I’ve ever attended…made even better because my good friend Melissa was there to help me capture the day! Thanks Melissa!
We started with the guys having a late breakfast together…
Vegetables always taste better in liquid form.
Then it was off to the Chagrin Valley Hunt Club to meet up with Laura and the ladies as they prepared for the big day.
Laura and Ian planned a late afternoon ceremony, which meant that we did a lot of the couples photography before hand. The first time they saw each other was a special moment for them both, quiet and away from the crowd. I love it when this happens.
We spent some time walking the grounds of the club, and then it was off to explore the village of Chagrin Falls 🙂
Then it was back to the club for the main event…but that will have to wait. More tk…
