Certain things stand out to me at a wedding as a photographer. The most influential factor is usually the personalities and interactions of people, because that’s what makes each wedding unique in it’s own way. There will never be 2 weddings alike because wrapped up in a 12 hour event is lifetime and experience of so many people, mixed together, gently stirred and sometimes shaken. It’s continually poured out as the day progresses and believe me, I’ve seen a many a mix. If I were to name the end result of Lakesha and Keltric’s wedding day I would have to call if JOY (great happiness) Or maybe GLEE (extreme happiness). Any word that expresses the action of expressing delight would be appropriate because that’s just how it felt…even for me.
Villa Christinaprovided the garden environment and it couldn’t have been more perfect as the random clouds held back the rain and provided shade and ever changing light. (haha, ok, that part could have been better but that’s it!)
Laura at The Perfect Stemdid an amazing job on the flowers and purple was definatly the color of choice accented with emerald green.
I love these photos of Lakesha and friends because it’s a perfect capture of the joy that filled the day. It was uncontainable. Both her and Keltric’s friends just cracked me up all day long. It made the day so much fun.
Gail and Hester of Wedding Soiree kept everything moving along and it’s always such a pleasure working with them and their entire entourage.
Ok, so this is where it went off the hook. For those of you (myself included) who didn’t belong to a college sorority, they all know a certain dance, one that’s been passed down from year to year. Lakesha’s Delta song has her placed in the middle of the dance floor with all her sorority sisters encircling here with arms joined. They serenade her and she is the center of all attention while the song is played, surrounded by her closest friends. I’ve seen it many a times and it’s a very cool tradition but Keltric’s Omega fraternity was so dang energetic and heart pumping that for the first time ever, I took off all my camera gear and danced for at least 2 songs after they were finished. I mean IT WAS COOL!
The dancing went on and on from that point thanks to Urban Legends DJ, DJ TRON I almost had a hard time getting back into “photograper mode”. No thanks to Jerome, either. Lol
