Teri + Brad Wedding, 22 May 10

I am happy to share the beautiful photos from Teri and Brad's wedding. They had an intimate ceremony at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Chili, then we headed over to Teri's grandfather's senior living community for some photos (where I got some great group and individual shots), then finally stopping at the reception at the Wildwood Country Club in Rush. I love it when my clients give me lots of time for photos :) The DJ at the reception was someone I worked with in the past-- very professional and does excellent work as a DJ- Joe Quatela at Q Music Productions - and I had recommended him to Teri. It was a pleasure to work with him again (albeit briefly, since Teri and Brad chose my coverage times to end when the dancing started).

Getting ready

The ceremony

Sneak in a family portrait

One thing I always noticed with old family group photos (and yearbook/activity group photos) is that often in the small print sizes it's hard to discern faces. So, I always shoot group shots two ways-- wide to show the whole person, and close up, like below, to show everyone's faces.

Onto the reception.. some details:

Everything had a purple theme.. many of the guests dressed in purple or purple/lavender accents (vests, ties, shoes etc)

First dance



This was funny. The man on the right had jokingly told Teri to "go away!". This was her reaction :)

After dinner, the father-daughter dance

And the anniversary dance to round out the evening

Thanks for a fun time- all the guests were really friendly and I had an easy time with everyone. May your marriage be blessed.
