Thanks, Macaulay Point Park, for having so many backgrounds and lots things to climb.

“Trash the dress” is a fun trend of putting your formalwear through trials normally reserved for less expensive clothing for the sake of fun photos.

For years, I asked my couples if they had any interest in doing a trash the dress session post-wedding.

My request was generally met by raised eyebrows, uncomfortable body language and, in that one case, a restraining order. *

Eventually, I stopped asking.

Then, out of nowhere comes Julie, who up and asks me for a trash the dress session, and man oh man . . . what an amazing time it was.

* – that was a joke

What a ridiculously fun time. How often can someone say they get to do stuff like this?

And, ya gotta admit: most brides won’t ever have a photo like this.

And what do you do when two divers offer to join your bridal subject in a photo while she’s knee-deep in seawater?

YOU SAY YES.

Along one of the docks at Macaulay Point. This was before jumping in . . .

Jon (the groom) had an avid baseball player for a father. He played baseball his whole life, and later coached Jon and his brother Chris for a number of years. He died 12 years ago, and Julie + Jon wanted to honor him in a way that was unique and special.

Jon had given glove to his son, Jack, as a lasting link to his grandfather. So, rather than carrying the rings in on a pillow, Jack walked them down the aisle in this glove.

We did some of the formals at Julie’s former workplace, Boston Pizza. There’s nothin’ like a bride at a pizza shop to garner some odd looks.

This is Tami, Julie + Jon’s marriage commissioner.

Behind her is all the couples in the family she’s married.

She does good work, doesn’t she?

Just before the grand entrance at the reception, Julie agrees that her ringbearer and butterfly/flowergirl have the right idea.

Julie’s married name will be Jones. They’ll be a pair of Joneses together.

Thus, Jones soda was plentiful at their wedding.

NO COMPLAINTS HERE.
