Ok, so I think this post has been my favorite to compose. This is a compilation of the randomness of our weddings from 2011. This is also a good glimpse into why we LOVE our job! So as I always say, this was so hard to limit the number of photos to post. Summing up 1 year in 1 blog post is seriously nearly impossible for me. Too many great weddings! So here are a few of the crazy, insane, hilarious, emotional, adorable and entertaining moments from our wonderful weddings of 2011!
Crazy Reception Dancing- crazy dance moves that shock even the bride
Best Wedding Parties- Jonathan’s fedora on more than one occasion has become a prop for dancing. Here it is making its rounds to Michael Jackson.
Adorable Ring Bearers- this little guy was walking around watching Jonathan take pictures. He was suppose to be getting dressed, as you can see.
Sports Wedding- you never know when a game of baseball is going to break out at a wedding reception
Unity Candle Alternative- who needs candles or sand when you could have a volcano!
Creative Reception Exits- start a silly string war, even the bride came out prepared
Fabulous Dance Moves- can be busted by just about anyone, including the groom
Beautiful Moments- when Robin of Di Fiori delivered the bouquet to the bride, she started to cry stunned at how beautiful it was
Dance Your Heart Out- and that is just what this guy did
Family Fun- we LOVE to see our families having fun & these 3 know how to have a blast! HUGE shout out to the Kiel Crew!
A Family in Love- Kissing Cousins…say what! We have taken a photo together at each wedding & this is the grand finale! The last cousin is now married! Yep that is Jonathan & I on the far left.
Serenade- and that is just what these guys did, it was probably the best worst sang song to date
Sneak Photo- when you are the photographer & family this is how you get into family photos. Yes that is Jonathan taking a photo of my sister and I getting ready for my cousin Madison’s country chic wedding.
Confused? I promise they did know what was going on despite what this photo shows: Brad the amazing DJ of ES Events, Travis the fabulous planner & designer of Functions Events & our wonderful Jonathan
Celebrities- we would like to introduce you to our newest photographer Terence Newman. Big thank you to our 2nd shooter Jamie for loaning him her camera while he worked
Groomsmen Having Fun- this groom was prepping for his big day cheerleader style
Dueling Pianos- the greatest entertainment we have seen at any wedding!
Mariachi Band- an excellent way to introduce the newlyweds while provide entertainment for your guests
Photo Booth- we of course had to include a little photo booth fun in the mix
Deja Vu- Meet Cameron he has single handedly attended at least 3 Jonathan Ivy Photography wedding in the last year or so. Huge Shout out to Cameron, our most loyal guest!
Traditions- now I can honestly say I have no idea what they were doing when they did this but I can say that my ear drums have been impacted for life
Commemorative Dances- I believe this dance seen here is called “Doing the Debbie”. We don’t ask, we just shoot!
After Party Outfit- not only the bride needs an outfit change mid way through the reception
Family Hug- this is what it looks like when you are the only boy out of 6 kids
Runaway Groom- occasionally we run into a runaway such as seen here…and no this shot was not our idea, I’m just sayin’
