This past weekend I had the privilege of shooting stills for my brother-in-law's wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado. The wedding was entirely DIY, with my wife, my in-laws, and the bride-to-be taking on most of the preparation all by themselves, which made capturing all of the small details of the day that much more special. This is the sort of wedding that reminds me just why I love shooting them so much.
In addition to the photography, I streamed this wedding for Bailey and Jonah's friends and family that couldn't make the trip. We had more than 20 people watching from 16 computers around the country. Both Jonah's grandmother in Washington and Bailey's grandmother in Arizona, neither of whom were able to attend, were able to watch the ceremony online. I am so excited to be able to offer that service to other couples, because i saw how much it meant to my wife's family.
I ordinarily list the names of the various vendors involved in the wedding, and here, that means listing just about my wife's entire family. The flower bouquets were put together by my mother-in-law. The tent for the dinner and dancing, as well as the tables, and the arbor the bride and groom stood in front of were made by my brother and father in law. The officiant was the groom's grandfather. The catering was provided by my mother-in-law, her sister (aunt-in-law?), and the non-cake desserts were baked by my mom. The groom even forged the wedding bands himself. Every single aspect of the wedding was DIY. There were so many incredible details, and they all just fit perfectly with the attitude of the couple so perfectly.
Congratulations to my little brother, and my now official little sister!
