And we're gonna get married.
Well it wasn't actually a chapel it was more like the local park but we did go to a wedding on Saturday. The wedding was scheduled for 11:00 am and at 10 it was raining. This was supposed to be an outside wedding. Luck was with the bride and groom though and the skies cleared and made way for a beautiful day.
I wasn't asked to take pictures but you know me, I can't pass up an opportunity to snap some shots. They didn't have a professional photographer there so I felt perfectly comfortable standing next to the girl who was snapping away with her point and shoot. It was fun for me and the couple will get a few extra shots from their day.
I'm going to show you a few of my favorites today and then a few more on Thursday.
I started with the bow on the chairs while we were waiting for everything to begin. After all they had raindrops on them and I can't resist raindrops.

And of course the kiss. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a shot without the truck in the background. Across the street from the wedding there was a medieval joust going on and people were parked all along the road.
I took the above shot, cropped in close, copied part of the right hand side of the picture and pasted it on the left. Then I faded out the edges and lowered the saturation. Not great but at least there is no distracting truck in the background
Tomorrow I will hopefully have sometime appropriately red white and blue for the day and then Thursday it's more wedding.
