Mary + Josh Get Married! {by Kitty}

So um, the images from Mary & Josh's beautiful wedding have been sitting here forever waiting for me to write commentary.  And I've said this (to myself and on this blog) several times before - I'm not hired for my writing skills and I'd much rather the images tell the story themselves.  However, I don't really want to be so impersonal (because while I'm a spectator, it's still personal to me) as to simply post images and say nothing, I'm going to try something new: Cliff Notes.  It will be funny to see if I can make a long story short (verbally, at least.) :)

So...Mary and Josh:

Great Idea: Mary gave her bridesmaids these beautiful matching kimono style robes to wear while they were getting ready.  You'll have to wait for the slideshow to see them (and I plan to make a "where to get them" post in the near future) but it really made for pretty photos!

Awesome thing about the ceremony: Very accommodating priest who allowed us to use common sense and good taste in regards to moving about the church to get good angles.  There was also a fair amount of laughter (and plenty of tears in the pews.)  Mary's mom's face as she watched her come up the aisle was priceless (that's a slideshow moment...)

Favorite thing about Mary and Josh's portrait session: they never stop kissing. :)

Second favorite thing: they weren't afraid to get their feet wet or dirty.

Best decor detail: of them.  Pretty, pretty, pretty!
See that lovely lady in the second photo from the left?  That's Mary's mom watching the first dance. Favorite quote of the day: Mary saying how her mom and grandma are her two favorite ladies in the world.

Thoughts as I left the building: I wonder how badly Mary and Josh's faces are going to hurt from smiling and kissing all day. :)
