Listen. This blog isn't about me...but it's going to be about me for like three seconds. When I was growing up, I watched Father of the Bride with my dad every other weekend - rotated, obviously, with What About Bob. I always wanted my wedding to be just like that, minus my dad losing his mind and getting thrown in the slammer over hot dog buns. Needless to say, this wedding is as close as you could probably get. It was classic, gorgeous, full of sentimental touches, and I loved every minute of it. And I might have lived vicariously through it. No big deal.
As soon as Coreen contacted us I knew we had to shoot this wedding. Oh, you're getting married in your parent's backyard overlooking the river? Where do I sign? The whole set up was just perfect - a cocktail area leading into a tent reception, where the bride and groom made their entrance via boat. We couldn't have asked for better weather - a perfectly breezy, sunny August evening. The guests made their way around to different snack stations and danced to a live band until sending off the newlyweds with a sparkler exit.
I'm not telling you this to make you jealous. But if you're not, there's most likely something wrong with you. Congrats Shawn and Coreen!
Oh, and my favorite part was that Coreen wore her mother's wedding dress!
Yes, of course, the groom arrived to the ceremony on a boat.
Coreen's parents own Paninos, by the way. And Panizzas did show up at around 10 o'clock. I thought that was pertinent information to pass along.
