Wedding Story: Becca and Paul

This wedding was just fun.  The bride was fun.  The groom was fun.  Their people were fun.  David and I met Paul (and many of his people at the wedding) at Campbell, so it is always good to be around familiar faces.  Paul and Becca have so much positive energy and huge love for one another that I am sure their love lit up Richmond on their wedding day.  

Paul had big plans for taking David and the groomsmen all over 
Richmond to tons of funky spots for pictures- he delivered...

One thing you are going to learn about Paul (and the company he keeps) 
is that he has a fabulous sense of humor- enjoy.

The feel of this edit-and their action-makes me think this is a still from an old movie.

There were so many other places Paul took the guys but hey, 
I gotta start showing you the rest of the wedding at some point, right!?
(yes that cloud is real)

Becca and several of her ladies are dancers (you will see more about that later!) and the Richmond ballet was next door- had to work that in!

The ring bearer (his daddy was a groomsman)
 made quite the entrance down the aisle in this remote control car.

After the ceremony we took the hotel shuttle to Brown Island where there were several awesome bridges, fountains, grass fields, etc and so on.  Just like with David and the guys, I think I need 5 other posts to show you everything we accomplished here...

There were all these boring quotes and I just happened to ask 
Becca and Paul to stand on this one... I leaned over to read it and WOW!  
We all fell in love with it.  I want this on a canvas ASAP.

The girls put this together all by themselves.
I told them they look like woodland fairies in those flow-ly dresses, barefoot.

Ok so I like both of these... which one is your fav?

Becca and Paul did a "traditional" first dance... 
then Becca, being the fabulous dancer she is, put together a little 
something-something with Paul.  PLEASE check out her arm muscles.

Two highlights from the reception:
1. Scott wrote a wedding song for Becca and Paul to the tune of Thriller.  Apparently Paul did something similar for Scott's wedding.
2. They did the "married couple dance" and found that Becca's grandparents were the ones that had been married the longest... 63 years!!  We've seen this dance many times, but have never seen a couple that had been married this long!

The guests were instructed to come up to the mic and sing a song with the word "love" in it, 
and when they said "love" Becca and Paul were supposed to kiss...

Look at Becca's form!  
This is a rare occurrence, but there I am in the shot- 
just thought I would put that out there :)

It's a shame these two never changed their facial expressions 
(whew I hope you know I am being sarcastic!)

Becca and Paul:  What a great day you two had!!  We were thrilled to be a part of the fun.  You two energized us and kept us creative- we loved it.  Hope Jamaica was FABULOUS!
