ALAS. this is last wedding of 2009! what a great wedding season. oodles of awesome bride and grooms met, tens of thousands of fun moments captured, and lots of new places seen. now lets talk a bit about evie & ruben…
I love this wedding and this couple because: the entire ceremony was in romanian (holy awesome!), evie hired me and broke tradition instead of hiring the same romanian photographer everyone else hires (evie is awesome), evie and ruben bought an ikea couch for their engagement session that they used in their ceremony (see below..), evie is the smart-girl who puts comfy pads in her heels (seriously girls, consider your tootsies), they quite randomly scored a yellow volkswagen van to use in portraits (story below..), their colors were a totally rad blue and yellow, they had millions of cupcakes instead of the traditional cake, and best of all; foregoing dancing the night away because there were so many family and friends in attendance that there wasnt any room for it, evie and rubens loved ones put together this totally awesome hour long slideshow complete with interviews, live skits on stage, bloopers, tender moments, and funny stories. it was amazing. ben and i were crying! well, i was crying.
ok before i write an entire novel..on to the pictures…congrats evie and ruben! ben and i love you both.
ben was with the boys ofcourse. they had a good time, obviously:)
custom converse? yes please.
so the story of the van: evie and ruben wanted SO BADLY to find/rent a yellow volkswagen van for the wedding. but they couldnt find one, anywhere. then a few days before the wedding, they were taking a walk in a random neighborhood. lo and behold, in someones driveway was a perfect yellow volkswagen van. it was too perfect. they went to the persons door, introduced themselves, explained how they were getting married in less than 48 hours…and yep, you guessed it, the guy said…sure, use it…i’ll bring it to your wedding site day of…for free. what??? how awesome is that.
more perfection from the day, a first look. i love love love when my couples do a first look and we can get images like these!
this was bens view. love it
ben was with the boys when they stopped for a quick blessing on the day
my view of the prayer at the end..
this is evies dad. his tie was tiny little cats…because (and correct me if im wrong evie), when evie was a little girl, he used to call her his “little cat” in romanian.
these next two are my favorite images from the day.
rubens toast from his brother was amazing…they were both really emotional.
ben caught these of the live skits. they were hilarious!
Evies best friend couldnt make it to the wedding, and there was a whole portion of her on the slideshow…interviews, tears, well wishes…evie was really choked up!
boys are really funny. rubens friends are really really funny.
love this one ben caught. perfect end to this wedding.
