What a whirlwind day! My favorite part of the day was the 45-minute break we took with the wedding party on the patio at the Water Street Inn. It was a gorgeous cloudy day with the river being absolute glass, and we had just finished taking the stunning image of Nicole and Joseph in the gazebo. We were way ahead of schedule so we all had a chance to sit in the sun and just take in the awesome day. Of course then we realized it was 4:15 and the game was on again!
Nicole had some many awesome details planned that it took a small army to coordinate all the movements of the day. Here is a list of the incredible attention to detail: Colten’s custom bro/sis cuff links, surprise gifts for each other, light-up “LOVE” sign, “Mint to be” sign, blanket shield, little kid pictures on chairs at ceremony, Nicole’s bedazzled purple shoes from a garage sale, custom locket, McKenna’s custom kerchief, live music first dance, custom watermelon with a golf ball for Joe and volleyball for Nicole from Marna’s, and probably 25 other details I didn’t mention…
When we were in the gazebo, Nicole was talking about how heavy her dress from Posh was, but we got the shot of her holding it to the side – good thing you are ripped, Nicole! Many of the bridesmaids were 6-foot volleyball players so I had to wear my tall boots so it didn’t look like I was shooting in the redwoods haha.To calm Nicole’s nerves a bit I put “Jock Jams” on for the reveal of her dress to her bridesmaids and that is some of my favorite video we have ever taken! We just love that kind of spontaneous randomness, but more than that I love shooting couples who are totally into each other and that was the case with Joe and Nicole today! They had a hard time being serious because they always make each other light up.
On their plane ride to Mexico, they were on flight 5-15 and they were in row 15. Now that is some cosmic karma for sure for a 5-15-15 wedding – congrats you two and it was so awesome shooting with you today! -Judd and Josh
