Soooo, I'm trying something new here with this blog post! Ya know how I've been a HUGE slacker this summer when it comes to blogging? Its mostly cause I'm a BUSY girl and blogging takes, well, darn near forever!! However... I am hoping that I have come up with a much easier, less time consuming way to give you a great wedding story. Instead of storyboarding then uploading a picture at a time, I used photoshop to make one huge long storyboard, then I only have to upload ONE thing!! OMG. Why did I not think of this sooner! The only big downfall is that I'm not going to be able to give my commentary in between pics... so I'll have to just tell the story at the beginning and let you guys sort it all out yourselves. I think perhaps this is gonna be harder for me than it is for you. Oh, how I love giving commentary. ;) Hopefully, if you have the time you can let me know how this works and if you like having it all in one big story...
So... meet Erin and Brad. You might recogize them if you've been to the website lately... they are one of the couples on the homepage slideshow. They hired me last year JUST for an engagement session. Lucky for me, we hit it off and they called me back and invited me to shoot their wedding too!! I honestly think I jumped up and down when we were able to nail it down, because not only are they like, the nicest people ever, they are also BEAUTIFUL and have amazing style and taste (Erin is actually the one who got me hooked on pinterest)!! I knew their wedding would be nothing short of amazing, and I was soooo right. Plus they had the help of a fabulous planner, Meris Gantt with The Whole Shebang.
Among my favorite things for you to look for in the pics: The invites! Brad is an uber-talented graphic designer, so he did these himself with their silhouettes.
The BEST candy table EVER!! I LOVE how they did 'Erin's Favorite' and 'Brad's Favorite' cookies.
Their crazy-big wedding party!! OMG! 15 groomsmen and 10 bridesmaids! Luckily, they were seriously the most LAID-BACK folks in the world, so they were awesome to work with! And I totally loved the guy's hats and suspenders!!
I also loved the venue! Girls in the Tri-cities area looking for a fabulous place for a wedding... the Allendale in Kingsport is not only super lovely, but also super affordable! I almost passed out when they told me what they rented it for!
Anywho... on to the pics!
Thanks SOOO much Erin and Brad! I loved being a part of it!! ;)
