Holly & Josh are Married! Picture overload!

I had the honor of photographing Holly & Josh's wedding two weeks ago. (Yes, I know, I have never finished a wedding that fast before...I'm hoping to start a new trend.. we shall see! :) As you can see from the photo above, it was one of those gray drizzly days that we were not sure if we were going to get to do photos outside at all!

It was a very special day, and the love that the bride and groom had for one another really showed! Holly could not stop smiling, and Josh cried when the bride came down the sweet!

The bride had a cute defense against the rain!

This one is a "Where's Jessica?" Can you find me in this shot by my assistant?

I love this; it's a circle of prayer with the bride and groom along with their parents and grandparents. (Johnny and I did this at our wedding, I think it's very special)

This might be the biggest group shot I have ever taken:

This wedding party was up for anything! (By the way, here we are at the groom's house which was next door to the church!)

The groom's cake was pretty cool:

The wedding took place while the groom was on leave from the Air Force, and Holly moved to Italy with him 4 days after they were married!

I know this one below is not focused and it's so grainy it's not even funny, but it is so sweet! Right at the end of the first dance, he picked her up and spun her, and I wasn't ready for it, but I love this photo! :) It's "emotionally in focus"!

Thanks for choosing me to be a part of your special day. You two are so sweet, and I hope you are having a blast in Italy! :)
