Wedding Story: Mindy and Dominic

Wow!  Thanks for all the awesome and overwhelming feedback on the boudoir shoot.  I put it out there and held my breath to see what the response would be- and wow!  Thanks for the love J


I know Mindy is about to go crazy!  David and I joined Mindy and Dominic on another cold and windy day to shoot their adorable New Years Eve wedding.  You might remember them from their awesome engagement/bridal shoot.  These two had the cutest wedding in Erwin, NC- the ceremony was their church and the reception at the fire house!  Mindy is a detail girl (she is an elementary school teacher- enough said, right?) and put together some great stuff- check it out…


Let's change things and start off with the men.  Everyone rags on girls for having to get ready together but honestly, I have noticed at weddings that men must secretly love the excuse to help each other get ready…

Yes, one groomsman is actually stapling one of Dominic's brother's pants.  These guys are crafty.

Over to the ladies... Mindy doubles as the bride and flower girl makeup artist.

Her three flower girls were close family friends and their dresses were very similar to Mindy's.  they kept running around saying, "Look! We are all little Mindy's!!"

Here is the point in the program where I stop to obsess over the ring shots- my favorite part of the wedding day!!

Taking advantage of the Christmas decor.

David would have had a heart attack.  I had Mindy's rings all in this little tree and the wind was blowing it around like crazy... he used to get nervous when I put rings in flower arrangements for fear of falling to the bottom!

Mindy and her grandfather:  I feel like she is wanting to say, "Is it my turn?  Can I walk down the aisle yet??"

David got this sweet shot of Dominic looking on as Mindy walks towards him...

Sealing the deal with a smooch!

I have found that one of the hardest pictures to get is fun time with the ladies.  It is easy for David to get the guys as they are able to be ready waaaay faster.  Luckily we had a minute to grab these before heading to the reception...
