Hollee and Justin's Wedding - 2/23/2013

As you can tell from the non-chronological order of our posts , I am catching up on blog postings.  Sometimes our Adventures come in bunches and it takes a while to get the photos and the posts ready to go.  There are also priorities associated with the topics as well.

Here are just a few of the nearly 1,000 photos that Sigrid and I took at Hollee and Justin's wedding.  Hollee is my brother Jim's step-daughter.  The family relationship is the only reason we agreed to take the photos.  We don't really don't want to be a wedding photographers.  The work is hard and the pressure is high compared to our usual types of Adventure photos.  Normally, if you take photos and then don't like what you have, you can just pitch them all and say, oh well, better luck next time.  When you shoot a wedding, you have the hopes and dreams of a young couple and all their family members in your second chances.

Sigrid and I want to wish the newly weds all the best in their new life together!

The wedding and reception were held in Davis Hall, a very rustic building in Wyandotte County Park in Kansas City, Kansas.

 Holle and her mother, Sondra, made all the table decorations themselves...very neat.

Sometimes Black and White looks pretty good.

This color version was made to look like it was done in Water Color using Photo Shop.

Here, only the Bridal Bouquet and the rings are in color.

It was a great wedding for a really nice young couple.
