Oh, goodness, this was a lot of fun. I don’t usually show so many “wedding details”. Don’t get me wrong, I love flowers, I love cake, and I certainly take photos of dresses and shoes and table arrangements. But, generally, they don’t tell the human story that is the heart of a wedding – the community of people who have come to celebrate. Plus, I sometimes view showing wedding details as a kind of cheating in wedding photography- flowers don’t move, shoes can be placed into better lighting, and I can control the conditions. In short – they don’t tell the hectic and demanding lighting conditions, the people management, or the anticipation that go into photographing a wedding.
But, sometimes details aren’t just the pretty adornments that make a wedding “pinterest worthy” – sometimes they are wonderful expressions of two people’s lives together, and that is certainly the case with Elisabeth and Brian, and their Pop Science Fiction meets Library Science meets New Orleans Second Line March wedding – where things have been thought out, planned, and crafted to be just right.
And between all the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy references, and the library ceremony, and the 20 sided dice that decided if they would kiss, there was just a lot of Elizabeth and Brian there. A lot of celebrating, and a lot to celebrate.
