I had the best time photographing Caroline & Stephen's STUNNING wedding yesterday. I had so much fun with these two on their engagement shoot and I knew that their wedding would not disappoint. They put so much thought into every small detail and really made the day unique:
1. The groom had a man cave set up with a big screen TV, sports paraphernalia, and an ice cream bar. The groom's best friend recently passed away and they had a candle lit for him in this room (so he could be hanging out with the guys).
2 The couple had "fun facts" cards posted all over the venue about themselves.
3. When the DJ played "Sweet Caroline," the bride took over the dance floor surrounded by all the guests serenading her.
4. The bride and groom led almost their entire group of guests around the dance floor in one of the longest dance trains I have ever seen. Hilarious!
5. In lieu of favors, the bride and groom made donations to two causes very important to them. Two sets of books were donated to Caldwell Enhanced Option Elementary school since Caroline is a great advocate of literacy. Stephen, an advocate for baseball, made a donation to RBI Nashville--an organization aimed at encouraging teamwork and opportunity through sports.
We got very lucky that the rain held off all day, and that ominous sky made for a terrific backdrop for photos. I had an extremely difficult time narrowing down favorites, but here are some shots I loved.
Congratulations Stephen & Caroline! I hope you have a wonderful time in Hawaii--I am so jealous. ;)
