Yesterday I shot the wedding of Brinsley Thrash and Beau Thigpen. It was a total treat. In fact, after attending their rehearsal dinner the night before, complete with whole pig ( apple in mouth and candy cane at the other end!) and possibly more roasting of the couple than the pig himself, I fell was in love with both families and really felt honored to know both Brinsley and Beau, let alone photograph the most important day of their new lives together. I felt like it couldn’t get much better.
I was wrong. It got WAY better.
Just to give you a highlight of how fun it was to be around these two, take a look at one of the Reception highlights. Now keep in mind that Brinsley is a city girl, she lived in New York for 6 years and practically took over while she was there, and Beau is a total Augusta Redneck who LOVES to hunt. ( I mean that in the nicest way!) Needless to say, these two know how to party, and so do all their friends! So around 11:00 p.m. things started getting a little crazy on the dance floor as you can see below with Mo, the father of the bride gettin jiggy wit it. Now I’m not sure if he was doing a particular dance move or if he was just re-livin some younger years but it was among the top 10 funniest things I’ve seen at a wedding!
The band was totally working the atmosphere and keeping things hoppin and I was one of many who were astounded when Brinsley herself worked the crowd and with her new husband cheering her on, busted out the WORM…..not once…but TWICE!!!!
Stay tuned for the whole story…I couldn’t resist putting this one up now! I love you guys!!
