A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing a very good friends wedding. Meghann and Rick’s big day was by far the funnest wedding I have photographed to date (and I’m not just saying that because they are friends)! Both Meghann and Rick were calm and relaxed and the whole day was about enjoying themselves and having fun. Exactly what every couple should do on their wedding day!
The girls started the day getting ready at Meghann’s house.
Sometimes being beautiful isn’t so glamorous! Ha!
The girls decided that some Mimosa’s were in order, so Meghann pulled out the bottle of champagne from the freezer. It was frozen. Apparently this is what happens when you open a bottle of frozen champagne.
Awesome photo bomb from brides-man Zach btw.
Meanwhile the guys got ready at Rick’s cousins house. Rick’s son Rory was the ring bearer for the wedding and there were so many good moments between father and son.
Meg and Rick left lots of time BEFORE the ceremony for portraits since we didn’t have too much time between the ceremony and reception — which I obviously LOVED. We headed downtown to look for a special “gift” that a friend made to honor their wedding.
How much more Rock -N- Roll can you get than to have your own personalized wedding graffiti?
Meg wanted some special pictures with her best friend and Maid of Honor Tamera to show their matching tattoo’s. Lock and Key.
We headed to the Warner Theater where the ceremony and reception were being held to do a little freshening up before heading back out for more portraits.
Meghann hand made her guest table setting tickets. How adorable and crafty are these??
Meghann’s cake was made by her good friend Bethany. Bethany also happens to be Meghann’s partner in their cupcake business 814 Cupcakes (which I am a HUGE fan of).
The ceremony was beautiful and short (thank you guys) HA!
Then it was off for a few more portraits before the reception started. Meghann and Rick killed it in these and they are some of my favorite images from the day.
This is what happens when you tell a bridal party to start fighting:
Meghann and her dads first dance started off pretty traditional, but then the sappy father daughter dance music stopped and was replaced by guitars, sunglasses and a little AC/DC.
Mr. Bill was really getting into it:
Bride’s Man Zach helped out with the show, and after seeing some of his moves I think Zach missed out on his calling of becoming a rock star.
Oh yeah. And if you make a dare at a wedding and put down $100 wager, this will happen (I love the groom’s face in the background):
Thanks to Meghann and Rick for letting me be a part of your big day. It was truly perfect and you two are definitely meant to be together.
Love you guys!
