So just for the record, this wedding was not only that of which I had a dear friend involved in, but it was one of the coolest, raddest outdoor weddings I've ever shot. My high school theatre pal, Val got married to her soul mate, Adam. It was the most beautiful thing, watching them all being in love and what not. I couldn't get enough of it! Not only that but during the beginning of the reception, they actually gave a shout out to all the background people (even me) and could not show more gratitude for all of their family and friends who were involved. It was such a *real* and beautiful wedding.
It was easy getting along with all the groomsmen as they loosened up in the backyard with a drink and Adam gave them all gifts. Meanwhile, Val was upstairs in her home holding back tears with the anticipation of being with the man of her dreams. The ceremony was one to remember. The reception, even more so. Their cake cutting was a BBQ themed cupcake style dessert spread. Check it out. Last but not least we used their tire swing in the backyard to get some awesome silhouette-style photos of just the two of them, though keeping them away from the rest of their party was hard 'cause it was awwwwesome!
