What fun! I met with Andrew, Jessica, and Cindy (Jessica’s mom) last night to firm up plans for their wedding day coverage. First we stopped by Vander Veer for a few quick captures to round out their coverage. Their engagement session was outside when it was fairly cool. Spring! Yesterday was cloudy and gray, but with Spring colors exploding everywhere it was so good to be outside again.
They are so great together! Mom shared they had been together since Jessica was 16. Jessica said nothing, but there was a big smile on her face as her mom talked about them.
We will be at Trinity Lutheran in Moline, and will wind up at The Raddison in Davenport. In between we get to have some fun with a 1931 Ford. After that Luxury Limousine will wisk them away. A stop for some extra bridal party shots, and then on to the Raddison. Ruby Media, Heller Cakes, and SAS Entertainment will all be part of the day. Gonna be great. I totally forgot to find out who the florist is.
They have great mentors in their lives. Jessica’s parents have been together almost 35 years, Andrew’s parents around 40, and Jessica’s grandparents past the 50 year mark….if all our math was correct.
Jessica’s sister is her maid of honor. It was really a lot of fun to sit and listen to plans, and stories about people, and their excitement for the day.
The surprise of the day is my assistant Jordan works under Andrew. You just know I had to ask him to make sure Jordan was off that day.
We are going to have a great day! We have an old car <swoon>! I keep reminding myself I have to put the bride and groom in and with the car …. just kidding! But no joke…..a 1931 Ford!!! I am not excited…no not me!!
The tree is so beautiful, but I used this shot because she was telling me her colors are peridot and shades of pale pink. Spring colors! Then she sprang on me she was coming down the aisle under the blusher! So few brides today use the blusher! It is so romantic!
Two exciting things one wedding? Awesome!
