Alex and Rachel: Then Comes Marriage

I have one disclaimer to make before I get on with my post: blogger hates me! Well maybe just my pictures, but anyway it has done terrible unlovely things to my photos due to some "compressing" and formatting mumbo jumbo. Anyway just thought I'd get that out in the open now on to the post.

The day was beautiful(and cold). The bride was stunning. The groom was handsome. And now they are wed. Here is just a tiny peek at the wedding day of Alex and Raquel:

there is more irony to this photo than meets the eye...

Alex and Raquel had a "first meet" where the bride and groom see other before the wedding and have a few moments alone. Here Alex is seeing her for the first time:

Raquel's one request was to get a picture in the middle of this road where countless brides have before:

and yes guys, you get your very own foot shot

these two cracked me up with their antics of carrying the dress just right

the bridesmaids' "bouquets"

a couple of snapshots after the ceremony

then on to the reception...

Can I just say I could do a complete post on the reception alone. There was so much detail put into it. Everywhere I looked there was something more cute or clever than the last. But I won't bore you with too many pictures. These are all you get.

they put fake snow on the floor of the reception site

and of course the kids loved playing in it

well some loved...
 I love the contrast of the snow in her hair and on her feet while she is sitting in Florida's green grass

I love the flower girl's oh so hopeful face here:

oh and like is said, blogger hates me so that's why this picture is completely and randomly out of order

Thanks again Alex and Raquel for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. It was a great first experience!
