My eyes lit up when I heard it..."an aquarium wedding."
She was handing me her AQUARIUM wedding?! I had to suppress all of my desire to jump up and down like a 2 year old! A great photographer friend of mine, Jillian Glaser, had just found out she had a beautiful new surprise on the way. I was so incredibly honored that she asked me to work with Casey and Candy since she was due right around their wedding date, and even more honored that C+C agreed to the change in photographer!
Candy envisioned a "fish and feathers" theme wedding. Having a theme wedding can quickly go from a cool idea to...well, over the top. But Candy stayed classy while incorporating fun and cute "aquarium" touches to her day. She mailed watercolor invitations to give her guests a glimpse at what was to come, their signature drink was a Sharkbite Martini, she hand-drew all sorts of sea creatures as her table numbers, and even her dress matched the theme with "waves" of ruffles.
Favorite wedding party photo ever! How can I top sharks??
And lastly, me with the cuties! Don't judge me for my lack of make-up...after over 10 hours of sweat (and tears), make-up has a tendency to disappear without permission!
want a daily dose of pretty?
