I took this one at the kid’s wedding in January 2010. I love this. Dave, the father of the groom, is enjoying a beverage and smiling at the kid’s dancing. This photo captured the feel of the reception all in one shot.
So I thought I should start posting random pictures I’ve taken just for the fun of it. This one was taken at a wedding in Chicago. I happen to have also been the Rev for this wedding so I wore two hats that day. Marry the happy couple in between taking before and after shots.Continue reading “Wedding”
What It Was All About, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. At the end of the day, when the vows are taken, the rings exchanged, the cake cut, the dinner eaten, and the dances danced the most important thing is really this… these two people found each other, fell in love, and decided to marry not justContinue reading “What It Was All About”
Funky Town, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. In the foreground are Don and Carolyn, famous first dance orchestrators. Wow… that’s quite a handle.
Eileen and Dave, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Martin’s parents getting down.
More Than This, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The first dance. They did very very well. They’d been practicing for days. The kids sent their song, More Than This by Roxy Music, to Mary’s aunt and uncle. Don and Carolyn, Karen’s brother and his wife, had then worked with their dance instructor to come up withContinue reading “More Than This”
Dave, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Martin’s dad, Dave, getting some refreshment between dances.
Brothers, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I have to say that, besides the wedding, of course, it was a great pleasure of mine to meet Martin’s brother and also to meet Karen’s son, Thomas. Needless to say… I cried.
Charles, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Charles worked the room like a pro with that camera of his. He had it down, moving around the ceremony and the reception without making a spectacle of himself. Stealthy and unobtrusive. It’s an art form he’s obviously mastered. Until, that was, he put the camera down and started shakin’Continue reading “Charles”
No Ball Playing, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Mary, Martin, and I had a bit of fun while we were wandering around outside near the Glessner House taking photos after the wedding as evidenced by the photo here. We had a little laugh about this and of course had to take a picture. I love hangingContinue reading “No Ball Playing”
Walking Into The Future, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Ok, this is the corniest title for a photo I might ever have come up with, but what can I say. I think my witty well has gone briefly dry. So, Walking Into The Future is what it shall be and remain.
Speechless Reaction, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There were some great speeches. Karen gave an amazing one that included a poem she wrote for Mary. I think everyone got teary during that one. Way to go honey! Martin’s speech was also good. You could tell, as he got going, he went into professor mode. Very engagingContinue reading “Speechless Reaction”
With This Ring, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.
Wedded Bliss, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is what wedded bliss looks like. Martin and Mary and I ventured outside, just the three of us, after the wedding was over to get some shots. It was cold, hence the coats, etc., which I was sort of glad for. Otherwise they wouldn’t have been able toContinue reading “Wedded Bliss”
Tasty, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Again, the kids did an excellent job choosing the cake. Not overly fancy. Just simple, understated, and elegant.
Let The Good Times Roll, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The wedding venue was magically transformed into a reception hall in under two hours. Not bad. The Glessner House Coach House ended up being the perfect place for both wedding and reception. Simple, elegant, and a really nice atmosphere. Yay Glessner House.
The Topper, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I loved the cake topper the kids chose. Non-traditional, and cool.
The Party, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Introducing… the wedding party. Pretty awesome looking group of people.
Conquering Marriage, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Martin immediately after conquering the institution of the marriage ceremony. He is the veritable Rocky of marriage.
The Lineup, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.
Mr. Suave, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Martin, of course, was all suave and debonair surrounded by the ladies.
Beaming, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There was a shaft of light coming in through a golden window. It made for the perfect funny little photo. Here’s Mary, glowing, and the guys all looking up at her. We were all sort of chuckling. Turned out to be a great shot.
The Guys, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. And then there were the guys. Martin, like Mary, has great taste in friends. These guys were so much fun, and also very sweet. And yes, I know saying a guy is sweet is nearly the kiss of death, but I don’t care. They were sweet. Every one ofContinue reading “The Guys”
