Josie and Romeo’s Deer Creek Wedding was one of those days where the last minute call had to be made to move the ceremony indoors. It was the right choice, as it started pouring about half way through. Thankfully it did clear, and gave way to a beautiful evening, so we snuck in as many photos as we could before being called in for dinner, and then snuck out again in between courses for more!

I love those late-night photos, where we just head out and experiment with some off-camera flash, gorgeous skies, and the ambient light of the venue.

Huge thank you to our second photographer – Jo-Anne from Haley Photography! She was fabulous as always, photographing the guys getting ready, keeping me organized, and getting so many amazing angles through out the day.

I know these two have been dying to see some more images, so let’s get right to it!

We watched the rain fall with anticipation as Stephanie’s mom and bridesmaids helped her into her gorgeous gown. Sure, they say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day, but who wouldn’t take a gorgeous sunny day over a rainy one? I always say it can rain all it wants while we’re indoors, as long as Mother Nature gets it out of her system in time for the outdoor photos!

And magically, it all worked out, as it often seems to. After the church ceremony we went to a little park around the corner that I had not been to before. I totally fell in love with the gorgeous light on this one pathway – it was perfect! The leaves were just starting to change at this point, and the late afternoon sunlight started poking through the clouds. Oh, how I’d love to be back in that time right now! We had a such a beautiful fall season this year.

It’s clear that these two have an amazing group of tight-knit friends and family surrounding them. I think Stephanie had more bridal showers than any bride in history! Her brothers set the standard pretty high in the awesome sibling category, stopping in to the house before the ceremony to make sure everything was good and to grab a quick photo with the bride, running back to the limo to grab flats for the bride’s poor feet when she couldn’t walk anymore, and then surprising her with a Photo Booth during the reception! There were plenty of heartfelt speeches, lots of friends and relatives that travelled from far distances to be there, and the dance floor was PUMPIN’ when we left, and I’m guessing the party continued all night long.

Thanks for letting me and Monica join in the fun, we had a wonderful time documenting your beautiful day.
