claire and jon.....the wedding

claire and jon's wedding was my 16th wedding in 16 weekends! phew..... what a run of absolutely FANTASTIC weddings I've had. a totally awesome summer and fall. and claire and jon's was another totally wonderful day. i enjoyed it all.....the gorgeous weather (it was a wee bit chilly, but given the nasty rain the day before, the sunny blue skies were a welcome site)......the beautiful details......the adorable couple. it was just lovely. thank you SO much claire and jon for having me to share in your special day! hope you had a lovely time in mexico.....

 

 i loooooove fall colors and details

and claire's sisters

seriously check out that blue sky

handsome fellows....

  

and the shoe obsession strikes again....


and......shadow shots....love those too!


jon and some groomsmen fix the ring bearer's hair.....

being the father of the groom can sometimes be just too tiring.....

the whole ceremony spoke "warm and coziness" to me.....

  

 

  


such a gorgeous couple

   


this next one? DEFINITELY in the running for my favorite wedding party shot....




i love this one....one of those balloons on their truck? well i nabbed it for a couple pictures. (if you couldn't tell, i have a soft spot for balloon pictures)

  

reception details


claire's dad and grandma

one of those little details i love to stumble over.....the best man's speech notes on his napkin....


dancing....lots and lots of dancing.... some of these people may look familiar....because i shot claire's uncle dave's wedding to the lovely jody earlier this year. and SERIOUSLY, I ADORE the Knoble family and their dancing. they are too much fun. in fact i want to shoot all future knoble family weddings (hint, hint) to witness more of their super fun dancing! 

 

i love the concentration of the little kids in this one, not on jon and his mom dancing, but on their nintendo game....

even claire's grandma was whooping it up on the dance floor



thanks claire + jon for such a fun day! i was so happy to be a part of it! 

 

and phew! it has been a busy CRAZY year. i do have one more wedding in december that i am totally pysched for, but between now and then i have time for a much needed rest. i plan on taking some nice down time. (well after getting all of you fabulous couples your wedding pictures, of course!)

i will be still posting on the blog--i have lots of different things lined up to post during the off season---just maybe not as much.

thank you again to ALL of my superbly awesome couples. i still can hardly believe that i am so lucky to have my "job" be to hang out with fun people who are insanely in love on one of the best days of their lives. you all totally ROCK!!!!!!!!
