so… I’m behind on blogging. there, I said it. Julie and Ryan have had their photos since Christmas, but in the rush to try to get as many people their photos as possible the blog kinda got ignored. There will probably be a lot of catch up blogging around here in the coming weeks :0) This was a fun day (as you will see)…Julie and Ryan are crazy about each other and have a fun loving group of friends who were hilarious & full of laughs all day long….AND I had the lovely and talented Alecia Hoyt second shooting with me!
grandma’s purse and hanky… something old can still be cute!!
I am resisting the urge to put a photo of one of the bridesmaids in who’s dress zipper broke… I have some hilarious photos of her being sewn into her dress.
the lovely Julie
good Job Ryan on making everyone cry with your gift…
these two photos sum up Ryan to a T… always smiling.
Julie’s gift (an X Box 360) was received with equal joy, but less tears
how awesome is this organ?!?
so while some people are getting hitched… certain others are passing the time watching spongebob video’s on mom’s phone with earbuds in….
mine and Alecia’s view of the bubble send-off!
there was a skull flask… I heard rumors it was from the bachelor party..there were also photos of people drinking from a doorstop and a “yard” container. Gotta love people who don’t take themselves too seriously.
love this one!
and this one!
the “rufflemaster” at work….(a nickname Ryan earned by much dress carrying)
impromptu dance party (see the “yards” below…)
