Andrea & Fernando

To bring the month of September to a close we have Andrea and Paco. Andrea was a bridesmaid in the wedding of Karly & Scot which I photographed last March. You may recognize their wedding - the first photo you see on my website was from their ceremony. It's always neat to see familiar faces who become like old friends... not to mention there is already a comfort level established since we've worked together in the past. Karen (my assistant) second shot Karly' & Scot's wedding so she was eager to join me again for Andrea & Paco's.
This wedding and reception were both to take place at the same location Forrestal's Gallery in Middleton. To avoid too much down time for their guests Andrea & Paco decided to do all of their family and wedding party photos prior to the ceremony. We had a ball shooting on the Capitol lawn and got tons of great photos. Back at Forrestal's the ceremony took place in their outdoor garden. It was an incredibly moving ceremony as both Andrea & Paco wrote their own heartfelt vows.... Paco took his a step further and even vowed to love Andrea unconditionally when she cheers for her Chicago teams! The love between these two filled the air and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Andrea & Paco it was a pleasure working with the two of you. I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing time in St. Lucia.

Not only is this cake gorgeous but it smelled like you just walked into a chocolate shop.... yum

The evening highlight was a heart wrenching speech by the brides younger brother..
