As I’ve previously mentioned, my wife and I were recently married. I’d like to share some of the pictures and offer a quick note on them. Our photographer (Britt Lakin) did a wonderful job and we couldn’t be happier.
The first picture is of me right after I got dressed for the wedding. I went with a suit from Banana Republic and a tie from Express for Men rather than renting a tuxedo.
We decided to do what’s called a ‘First Look’ before the wedding. The thought behind it is that we would get to spend more time with our guests after the ceremony rather than have to worry about the photos. I’m squinting a lot in this picture, but Sarah looks amazing. She took my breath away.
After our First Look, we went to a topiary park nearby that is based on Seurat’s ‘Grande Jatte and Circus‘.
Sarah’s favorite picture. I like how the street is completely empty except for us. She calls it her ‘Beatles Crossing the Street‘ picture.
Before the wedding, the groomsmen all hung out in ‘The Ice Bar’ in the basement of the venue. We all had a drink of the Johnny Walker Blue Label (pictured on the table). I am incredibly lucky and thankful to have such great friends and family in my life.
Our first kiss as husband and wife.
A great picture of us sharing a moment before cocktail hour.
The dress was absolutely stunning (as is the bride). This is Sarah overlooking the table setup. The venue went from Ceremony to Dinner while everyone was upstairs at cocktail hour. This was the first time she saw it all come together.
Our first dance. The song was ‘The Book of Love’ by Peter Gabriel
Instead of having a traditional wedding cake, we hired Graeters to provide an ice cream bar. Instead of having a cake cutting, we each got our favorite flavor and had what we called a ‘First Scoop’. In all, we had seven different flavors for guests to choose from and was a huge success.
Instead of a DJ, we hired the Naked Karate Girls. Glenn was amazing leading up to the wedding and came up with a minute-by-minute program and helped us out every step of the way. Their professionalism is unmatched and their music brought the house down!
This is my personal favorite picture. NKG had just taken the stage and it was just Sarah and I on the dance floor with our favorite band in front of us.
