I met Kristie a few months ago when she came by my studio. After she booked me, I knew I was in for a treat as she is a very creative person, but I had no idea how fun her wedding was going to be.
This was the perfect example of a Do-It-Yourself wedding, and while I am sure it was a lot of work, this talented bunch of people made it look like it was a breeze to make this happen.
The weddding theme was a carnival and there were games with prizes... This monkey was one of those prizes.... I watched him chill on the grass by its winner's chair, get drunk with its winner's drinks while he was dancing and pass out pissed-drunk at the end of the night. These people and their monkey gifts definitely knew how to party!
When it comes to sweets, my life is a roller coaster. Sometimes I enjoy'em, but most of the times I couldn't care less about them. While my preference tends to lean towards a flan, a cheesecake or a chocolate fudge cake, this roller coaster and Ferris wheel of cupcakes definitely awaken some cravings.
Before I introduce you to Kristie and Mikael, here is the wedding party....
Now that you met the entire wedding party, it is time for you to fall in love with the couple as both my wife and I did...
The silliness... The authentic everything... The humble approach.... The loveliness.... I adore these two!
This kissing booth was made by a couple of friends. Everything was made by this couple and/or their friends and family.
While I was on location, I saw this really tall ladder (more on that later). And I mentioned the idea of a group picture to this lovely bunch and they were thankfully all game!
Sometimes it's all about being at the right place at the right time AND being READY! Right before the uni-sex bouquet toss, one of the groomsmen jumped the gun.
Here is that ladder shot. I truly had some serious fun on top of that ladder. The regulars of this blog know how I always mention to change your angle... Well, I changed my angle and my wife caught me in action.
Speaking of my wife... Kerem Hanci Photography team is ALWAYS in action. We cover your events from different angles and we make sure you get your story from very different points of view. Here is one of those rare cases we did not mind being in the frame. As Mikael serenades Kristie with his fancy air guitar, my wife Jen captured the general action and I walked in for the detail shot.
Let's finish on a ridiculously high note for all involved. My wife prepared and composed this shot, in which I only assisted her. I must also say that both Jen and I were incredibly honored to be the photographers to document Kristie and Mikael's wedding. May you prosper in love, health and abundance!
