I couldn't have asked for a better prop and backdrop. Mindi's garter even said "Harley Davidson" and had a hog charm on it. Love it! Marty and Mindi were married at the Wesleyan United Methodist Church in Urbana and then had an amazing reception at the Hilton Garden Inn in Champaign. And I think by the end of the day, even Marty was enjoying having his picture taken!
Here one of Mindi's bridesmaids was applying her last bit of makeup before heading to the church: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. Mindi's bridesmaids and mom are standing there soaking the beautiful sight in and snapping a few pictures of their own! Gorgeous: This is not from their "First Look", but about 20 minutes or so after. It may has well been though! Look at that smile! I found out who all the vendors were but the florist. Does anyone know? I'd love to link to their website if they have one! After the ceremony, the wedding party took a ride in the Z Entertainment Hummer limo and ran out of beer. So obviously, they stopped at Piccadilly for more refreshments. I have to say it was my first time taking pictures in a liquor store with a bride and groom and I hope it won't be the last! This is my favorite of their first dance shots: (special thanks to my assistant, Mimi, for holding up a strobe for me on a monopod!) I am loving the father-daughter dances lately! The rings: A little bit of different processing:
