before i arrived to met-up with the bride, i got lost in the streets surrounding the venue and along the way captured this little nugget of the palace hotel from afar.
stunning floral designs...
i got to spend the morning with karin and let me tell you she is an absolute delight. and gorgeous to boot.
check out her hair... a hair stylist's dream to be sure. this shot on the top is one of my favorites from the day.
the tying of the sash was quite complicated but with some perseverance and some collaboration we finally figured it out. and karin just smiled all along the way.
they must have thought i was rediculous when i was directing with wild gestures from way across the street. but hey, you do what you got to do.
another fav...mmm. buttery backlight and a city bus. AND those authentic smiles. yes please.
and now, it's time to celebreate...
and finally, some fun dancing shots from the reception. let me tell you, this crew had some moves. hilarious and wildly entertaining. my favorite? the mother of the groom. she's awesome and was smiling the entire time. love her!
and i'll end with this. because really, there is no better way.
gary and karin, thank you for inviting me to capture your wedding day. it was such an honor and pleasure.
