Dennis and Mike called me on the morning of December 31 and asked me if I was free the following afternoon, New Year’s Day, to photograph their wedding– a celebration that they decided on, choreographed and executed in less than a week.
I first met the couple last summer, where they were guests at another wedding I photographed. They were already talking then about “when they get married…” so I wasn’t surprised to get the call. I was amused, though, that they chose to jump in and start the year off by share their vows, with only days to plan the event. Dennis said that he wanted to make sure that Mike would always remember their anniversary date!
After the lovely 15-minute service, guests toasted the new couple with Sparkling cider and ate yummy Red Velvet cupcakes from Burlington’s My Little Cupcake.
Here’s a 4-minute slideshow, recapping Mike and Dennis‘s smile-filled, love-filled day with family and friends. The soundtrack is one of favorite Billy Joel songs, “You’re My Home,” and the lyrics are perfect for this beautiful couple. (This slideshow is in FLASH, so you may need to switch from your iPad to a laptop in order to watch it):
Happy New Year and Congratulations, Mike and Dennis– May you always feed each other’s souls!
