What I found out is that over the years weddings usually fall into 3 categories. The couple either went to a friends wedding or saw another one online and just had to copy it right down to all the details, no problem with that. Then there is the other type of couple who's says, We want our wedding to be different, unique, we don't want it to be like so and so. Finally the couple who just goes with the flow who are not striving to out do or to be someone else or be over the top.
So now enters Marel & Andrew's wedding.
The Ceremony and reception was held at the Glen Manor House Portsmouth RI, one of my favorite venues.
The following is just a smattering of images of the many I captured, many on the normal side but others well, you be the judge as I make notes on them.
So the above image is just getting them warmed up for the next picture. To capture a something different group picture, have you ever thought about re-acting the West Side Story Rumble scene with real knives?
So traditionally after the first dance it's expected to have the toasts for about 30 minutes or so and you hope that there might be a few good laughs in there some where, but wait, how about having a couple of friends come and do their Burlesque Routine in their skimpy outfits instead? This is absolutely guaranteed to be different. It did raise a few eyebrows too!
Next up is the Father Daughter dance, now look close to who is invited to see it!
Marel & Andrew you win the "Let's do something different at our Wedding award" by a long shot, as far as I am concerned.
