"I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance." -Annie Savoy, Bull Durham
I began writing this blog before I actually began editing Pesarakphorn and Nick's wedding photos. I talked about how these two seemed so opposite in appearance but how they are actually completely perfect for one another. While I still totally agree that they were MFEO (that's a Sleepless in Seattle reference...), once I went back through the images from this amazing day I was reminded of just how awesome it was and basically started over.
As any of you who read my blog regularly know, I have had several weddings this year, each one unique and special in its own way. This wedding was no different. We met that morning at Nick's grandmother's for getting ready pics and their first look. Side note: Nick's grandma officially gets first place in my book for the sweetest family member of my 2010 wedding season. I was there about 5 minutes before she popped into the room as I was shooting the wedding dress to ask me if I'd like any pancakes. That's right, would you like some pancakes? SO incredibly gracious and sweet! Sadly I did not partake in any pancakes that morning, but I have no doubt they were delicious.
After leaving Grandma's the whole bridal party headed over to the University of Washington for a few fun photos in the weight room and some of my mandatory jumping pics. These guys had some of the best jumps I've seen all year, although I shouldn't be surprised since their party was full of athletes.
After the U, we made our way over to their venue. The Georgetown Ballroom could possibly be my favorite venue of the year. There have been lots of cool spaces (you'll see a couple more in the next few weeks) but this one is just so unique, eclectic, and funky. It has a ton of character and personality, and you guys know I'm all about personality. :)
The wedding ceremony itself was quick and simple, beautifully stated yet concise. The food was wonderful as were the speeches. Nick's dad quoted Bull Durham which is one of my favorite movies of all time. While everything leading up to this point was wonderful, my favorite part of the evening was the official announcement of the Bride & Groom. All of the bridal party came out from behind the curtains like a starting line up. It was completely awesome, from MLB theme and smoke machine all the way down to the huddle and confetti toss.
The rest of the night was a bit of a blur with tons of great music and lots and lots of fantastic dancing! Thanks to Pesarakphorn, Nick, and all of their friends and family for allowing me to share in this incredible day. I had such a blast with you guys and am super excited to follow Nick's journey to the Big Show!
Congrats and much love,
