Erin and Faisal got married on a rainy day…. probably my rainiest of the year, but they took it like champs & we still managed to get some gorgeous photos!! We started out at the Chase Park Plaza (and we will end there as well!) Erin had a ring that belonged to Faisal’s father made into his wedding band as a surprise– awesome!
here is a better view of the rings!
quite the transformation!!
the guys getting their suspenders on. I LOVE wedding suspenders and bow ties, though admittedly, this is primarily because I love seeing the undone bowties later on the dance floor!
a non first look, vow, and ring exchange
the girls goofing off before the big moment
the always beautiful Shrine of St. Joseph
we just had to use the big, pretty church doors
um, okay… so it rained. a lot. and dude… I don’t know who you are, but I admire the fact that you looked up and saw me getting drenched in my poncho with my camera gear in plastic covers and still tried to smile at me LOL
phew– under cover!
the wind actually made these shots twice as pretty!
bonus of the dark rainy-ness…. they turn on the lights!
and the ladies
how pretty are these flowers by Tina Barrera (The Special Event Florist)
still smiling, even in the rain
bam, blue socks.
Time to head to the party!
I love the twinkly lights around the Khorassan Ballroom at the Chase
more stunning flowers… love those cabbage-y tulips!
a few traditional things…
a little father daughter dance invader LOL
aaaaand party time.
When Mer and I went out to set up for the bubble exit to a car that was picking up Erin and Faisal…. we were quite confused to find a horse and carriage there… turns out they were just using that spot to load the horse and carriage into a trailer so we had to shoo them out of there in a hurry, but not before a few guests had time to pet and blow bubbles with the horse LOL
congrats you two!
Thanks for letting Mer and I capture your special day and for being so happy and fun even if the weather tried to drown us! with love, kate
