kimberly + ben

Just got home from our road trip to Michigan for my little bro's Labor Day weekend wedding. I must confess that I was a little nervous about the 16 hour drive, with Graham stuck in the car seat...But guess what? He was a rock star--he either slept or played for most of the trip. He exceeded my expectations and we had the best time! Anyway, let's talk wedding. Everything turned out to be absolutely beautiful and we were so happy to be a part of Ben + Kimberly's special day. There's still tons of editing to do, but I just had to share a few pics! I loved Kimberly's idea to get a picture of the ladies from the church's balcony: Hard to see in the picture, but we had the most elegant floor-length plum bridesmaid dresses with a little side ruching and some embroidery and beading on the front. Very form forgiving. This shot of the guys was just supposed to be a light-test, but we loved how it turned out! So relaxed and fun.
Best for last: Ben is a complete motor-head, car geek, engine freak. So his '84 Trans Am getaway mobile was a big highlight of the day. When it was time for us to start pictures right before the wedding I couldn't find him anywhere in the church. I almost began to panic, thinking that he was chickening out and checking out. Case in point, I found the tux-clad groom under the hood of a vehicle surrounded by guys in the parking lot. Nothing like a little pre-nup tune-up. ;)And this, my friends, is the rubber he laid pulling up to the reception venue.

Such gorgeous pictures, great job Jeff! I love outdoor photos on wedding days (and am still just a tiny bit sad we didn't get any due to the time and the snow). They look really great together!!

Jessica, I just dropped by to say your school scrap book picture could not have been more appropriate since I JUST dropped my little one off at her first day of preschool! Thanks so much, I'll be making one immediately :) I love your photography, I'm excited to go through and look through your posts.
