MORE Wedding Stuff?

I was able to catch a few decent pictures... However, I must state that it's nearly impossible to get a non-blurry picture of a groom who's too nervous to stand still, without the use of flash, in a dimly lit church. Our particular groom 'Jerry', had a side to side rocking motion to fight off the nerves. A previous wedding we attended, the groom, 'Paul' kept his nerves in check by chewing gum throughout the ceremony... His mother-in-law was not thrilled until Paul was able to explain that without the gum he was, "Going down." Funny that the guys get so nervous when all they have to do is walk a short distance from the front of the church to the altar. Whereas, the bride must walk the length of a center aisle in a gown that ways sometimes half as much as she does AND walk in heels while doing so. Believe me, there's all manor of things that can go wrong with that scenario, not to mention the fear of tripping over a 4 ft. train. So p'shah I say to all those nervous grooms!

So, here's some pics of the happy couple...

Jerry - The Nervous Groom

Jessica - The Beautiful & Excited Bride

The Happy Couple

It took what seemed like an eternity for them to cut a slice out of the cake. There were a mess of people standing around with their cameras at the ready waiting, and waiting, and waiting... Finally Jerry's dad hollered out, "Are you guys doing surgery or cutting the cake?" I guess they'd never cut a cake before.

Here's a favorite shot obviously taken post-feeding the cake to one another.

And a picture of one of my favorite moments of the evening.

I just LOVE Weddings!

What a fabulous picture of your dh and dd! And the bride & groom were pretty too, LOL. I'm so glad you had a good time, even after the embarrassing moment. There are a million of us out therewho are more than socially awkward, so don't beat yourself up, I'll bet theres more of us than them!

my favorite moment in a wedding is watching the groom catch his first sight of the bride. everyone else is checking the bride as she glides up the aisle but i am looking at the groom. i've seen some really beautiful reactions. that last picture is indeed sweet.
