Maybe my favorite kind of wedding to shoot are ones for my former Columbia College photo students. Seeing them go from kids fresh out of high school to doing some serious grown-up getting married stuff is pretty cool. Emily was a student of mine a few years back and she just got married it was so cool. It was also fun for the last year watching her plan and stress about the wedding on FB. Emily and Kostas had the wedding out at Allen Acres Barn which is about 2 hours outside of the city. It was a totally wonderful spot for the wedding every where I looked there was something cool to see. D’s Smoking BBQ did some amazing work for this wedding, some of the best wedding food I’ve ever had, can’t beat a great BBQ. Inspire of the heat people danced late into the night and the bride even saved a toad from getting stomped on the dance floor. This is the kind of wedding I could do every weekend.
