Saturday May 23rd was the much awaited wedding date for Erica & Joe. After months of preparations the day finally arrived and we were all blessed with warm weather and storm free, slightly overcast skies. I can’t be much happier than when mother nature provides me with a wonderful soft light. For those of you who follow my blog you may have noticed I obsess just a tad about weather. Part of the obsession comes from the fact I grew up on a dry land farm in Montana and the weather affected my families livelihood. I’ve in a way been trained since birth to be constantly searching the skies & pondering what is coming my way in the upcoming day. Now that I’m a photographer I find myself monitoring the weather because I’m concerned about the quality of light it produces.
You might remember Erica & Joe from an engagement session I photographed earlier this year. Unlike our first outing together, their wedding day went smoothly. No one was in need of a band and mother nature cooperated with us.
Thank-you Erica & Joe for inviting me to be part of your special day.
Erica’s day began in Meridian at Avante Salon. Her stylist Carrie Miller did an excellent job with Erica’s long locks.
After a relaxing morning in the salon we were off to Spurwing Country Club to complete the process of getting ready for the wedding.
Joe was worried about the first dance, but as you can see he did great.
This is one of my favorite shots of Erica dancing with her father.
Brad Rowen of DJ One One always does a great job. This crowd had a great time.
Sadly all great parties must come to an end. Luckily for this couple the fun was just beginning.
Sunny beaches and tropical drinks are in their future.
Jamaica here we come!!
