Blake and Bridgette

I shot Blake and Bridgette’s wedding the day after Mike and Courtney’s.  I was a little nervous because I had never done 2 weddings in 1 weekend before, but it was the perfect pair of weddings.  Blake and Bridgette were so easy going and laid back.  We were at Whitestone Inn for the wedding and reception, so we had a ton of time to play around.  They had a surprise for me and I have a surprise for you.  They’re the first couple to get a fun little surprise from me because they were so willing to, well, have some “atypical” fun.


So I’ve been trying to do something different with dates this year.  I don’t always have an opportunity to do something, but my girl Katie came up with the idea to make the date out of the bridal party.  So we took the easy road and did the roman numerals.  I hope that makes sense!  I think it turned out pretty cool.











The girls were not going to be out done!


So here is fun little surprise #1.  They busted out a little thriller during Blake and Bridgette’s first dance.  



They left the reception in a horse drawn carriage.  


Since we had some pretty sweet light, we took advantage of it in the wildflower garden.



The church they were married in is the one in the background.


SURPRISE #2!!!!!  We were discussing where we wanted to go in the carriage and I jokingly said that if they wanted to jump in the water, I wouldn’t stop them….as many of you former bride’s have heard!  I saw a little sparkle in Bridgette’s eyes and knew she was sold.  So we went down to the boat ramp and just played around in the water some.  I have to tell you that water has never felt so good!  It was about 100 degrees all day and we all just wanted to chill in the water for a little while.  




I know that you brides and mothers are freaking out a little bit.  Yes, the water looked a little nasty and the boat ramp was not clean.  HOWEVER, when Bridgette came out of the water, her dress looked the exact same, just wet.  Her dress was not ruined and will clean just fine!  As I’ve said before, they are going to get a lovely little surprise from me.  Everyone who does something will get something different depending on who they are and what they desire.

I need to reword the Comment contest.  The contest is for people who have a session or wedding posted.  Whoever has the most comments left on their session post are the ones who can win.  It’s not who leaves the most comments over the course of the year.  I’m sorry to all of those who have left a comment for their individual tally.  There’s no way I can keep track of who leaves the most comments.  Once again, it’s the shoot post that has the most comments by the end of the year wins.  The contest is only for sessions shot in 2008.  I hope this all makes sense.  So (1) posts only in 2008 and (2) the post that has the most comments wins.

Ok, so I said I was going to announce and re-announce some contests I’ve come up with.  These require a TON of planning and campaigning on your part.   CONTEST #1 – THE FIRST DANCE Pretty self explanatory.  For my future bride and grooms.  Come up with a creative first dance and win a prize.  You don’t have to tell anyone that it’s coming, but you HAVE to let me know that you have something up your sleeve so I can be ready and on point.  It doesn’t have to be your first dance, it can be something planned during the reception.  Just give me a heads up.  Here are a couple of inspiration videos from youtube.  THRILLER , BIG BUTTS . CONTEST #2 – COMMENTS    I love it when people leave comments on my blog.  It makes me feel good to know that there are people actually looking and that all of the work I put into the blog isn’t for nothing.  I know that the people who get the comments from their shoots love to know that people like their pictures.  This is for any session posted regardless of what kind of shoot it is.  Whoever has the most comments by December 31, 2008 will win a prize. WHAT’S THE PRIZE???I don’t know, what do you guys want?  A canvas print?  Album credit?  Another shoot?  A slideshow of your shoot?  Chime in and let me know what you think.  So start planning and campaigning!  Good luck!!
