Anthony and Michelle's Wedding

The eternal optimist that I am, I have to say, this whole being behind on my blogging thing is really kinda cool because now enough time has past to give me that "re-living" feeling when I go through the pictures! Every wedding event is such a personal experience for me. Photography is not a job to me, it's a way of expressing what I feel about what I see. I get to know each and every one of my clients and by the time we get to their wedding, I'm as (...ok, more...) excited than the little flower girls! We just celebrate in our own unique ways...they throw petals, I snap pictures!


Anthony and Michelle got married in June and their wedding was really fun because it was my first Serbian Orthodox wedding! Michelle tried to prepare me for all the partying that takes place in a Serb wedding, but there was nothing she could have said. lol! It was one GREAT. BIG. PARTY. from dawn to dusk. And beyond. I don't think I stopped smiling all day!


Michelle prepared at home and behind their house is this gorgeous old oak tree and a big open field. She loves this tree and I love that she loves it! It made a really great place for some pictures before the ceremony.

Anthony is one of the most down to earth, real guys I've met. When you meet him, you just feel comfortable and at home. But I love how he pulls off a good mobster look too...the cigar was really fun to play with!

All the little cousins wore matching dresses! And I love how the painting behind them depicts all the children on Jesus' lap. How perfect!

Michelle's dad doesn't look too upset about giving her away, huh? Who would when she's marrying a guy as awesome as Anthony!

When asked if he was promised to any other woman, Anthony paused to think...resulting in this great reaction from everyone! LOL!

Michelle's daughter, the flower girl, watching her Mom get married...I love this moment!

Anthony grins boyishly at Michelle...it's adorable! :)

I think Anthony was amused by the crowns. As a side note, my son saw this picture and his jaw dropped, "Are they the REAL king and queen???" It took everything in me not to say, "YES, honey, mommy shot the king and queen's wedding last weekend!" lol.

When Anthony and Michelle exited the church, everyone greeted them with shots and chucked quarters at them! Seemed kind of dangerous to me, but I guess Serbs are pretty resilient!

The kids swarmed the quarters...presumably to chuck them at the bride and groom again.

Then the accordian music began and the dancing ensued. I absolutely love the storytelling of this picture!

Michelle's daughter was the flower girl and Anthony's son was the ring bearer. Both were really fun to goof off with...
