I met Candace at my doctor’s office. I’m not sure if she saw me going through the back door in a moo moo and fuzzy slippers for three days after my surgery, but we did end up talking about her wedding day. Candace is extremely talented and decided on a DIY wedding for the reception and chapel. She chose a clean red and white theme and made all the table decorations herself. The cake was designed and made by a close friend and her musician was a friend from back in the day. A pool of talent combined with friendship equals awesomeness and it really doesn’t get any better than that. It was a wedding full of laughter, family, and close friends and one of the most amazing intimate wedding’s I’ve ever been to. As a wedding photographer, I often shoot weddings with 150+ family and friends and sometimes it’s like taking a breath of fresh air to shoot in a more intimate setting.
Candace and Marc have amazing personalities and both love to laugh. To me, that’s a must if you want to dance through this life with all its ups and downs. They are truly an inspiring couple.
No, Marc really didn’t get stuck with the pin.
I love Marc’s expressions.
Candace has known Todd since high school and he is definitely going on my preferred vendor’s list. He provided the music during their ceremony and plays the guitar beautifully. He also has a voice that would win him first place on American Idol.
Marc brushed the side of Candace’s face and it was so romantic.
Heading to the reception.
Thought I’d try my hand at a little HDR. I took three different exposures, combined them, and used a filter called Topaz. Not a work of art but I think it came out looking pretty cool.
Oops, need champagne for the toast. Cassie was all over it. She must have ran track in high school because she moved so fast, it was like a blur going past us.
I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this picture because the girls look scared of the bouqet. Kinda like “bombs away” or someone yelling “duck!” They look so darn cute.
