January 05

Remember that pesky hurricane Irene that came by back in in August?

The same hurricane that slammed a good portion of the Jersey Shore & Jamaica Queens? Not to mention the Carolinas?  And sent both Home Depot & Lowe’s stocks flying through the ceiling for the rest of 2011?

Yeah, the same one that literally put a damper on a lot of people’s weddings.

Well, Hurricane Irene (The storm) was not stopping Hurricane Ashley (The Bride – no, really, that was her name in college…) from getting married that day. Rain, sleet or shine, and it might’ve been one of the wildest nights I’ve been through. The drive home was interesting to say the least.

The entire wedding was ran on backup generators, but still experience period power outages and oh…did I mention the massive amount of rain & wind? =)

But this was truly truly…meant to be. They’ve known each other since they were toddlers…Ashley even told her mother that she was going to marry that boy Steve one day. Their worlds split after Steve moved away till they reconnected in college with very nostalgic reunion. Long story short, they lived happily ever after.

I like veils in unorthodox positions. =)

It might just be me...but I like a bright back lit shot...it just tricky to not overexpose certain areas.


Unfortunately, the first look had to be moved indoors for obvious reasons

But it made it no less special. Especially with the history these two has.

We were able to sneak out for a decent 5 minutes.

Love me a happy go lucky kinda bride.

Brooklake. I've gotten into lots of trouble with this place on getting on the greens. Notice the sign on the right...it says no passing beyond that point...but I never listen.

I really wanted that olive oil bottle. =(

Well, we had to use the sunglasses that were purchased for the outdoor ceremony one way or another.

Steve's mom was breaking down during the first dance. =)

I love seeing a daughter-parent dance.


we were having a flash blinding competition, guess who won. =D

Ashley's brother was getting into it.

I don't know if that'll help the beer flow any faster...

Overzealous. Love it!

Typical right? NO. Relationship: Nephew & Aunt. = Hilarious!

Brought them outside during the heavy portion of the storm.

Literally a 3 second shot, but I was drenched.

Though they didn't want a full Hora, you couldn't have a Jewish wedding without at least the chair raise. =)
