These two did it perfect. They knew themselves and knew their families. I think that's all you really need to throw the perfect wedding. Point of importance number one: Dog must be at ceremony. Decision: Central Park. Point of importance number two: All family from midwest and has never been to NY. Decision: Rent a Site Seeing bus with tour guide to transport guests from Central Park to reception. Point of importance number three: Casual, down-home and non-traditional party. Decision: Have the reception at a Burger Joint. Everything was so well balanced, and people had such a damn good time. Guin and Tom, thanks for including us in your celebration. We will forever remember the night we shared with your family and friends.
We weren't sure if we should take them to Dead Horse Bay. We hadn't met them yet, and the place isn't necessarily for everyone. Based on our phone calls, it seemed like a fit, but we couldn't be sure they'd be into a beach littered with thousands of glass bottles, toilets and shoes. We wouldn't know until their zip car pulled up and we said our first hello. The telephone rang. It was them. We peeked outside to the street through the curtain, grabbed our gear and headed downstairs. They got out of the car to greet us as we walked up with handshakes, hugs and hellos. Chellise and I collapsed into the backseat and looked at one another knowingly.
"So where are we going?" Amanda asked.
"Dead Horse Bay." We replied in unison.
It took only this:
"I am a big fan of Wong Kar Wai's movies, his overly saturated stills. I think 35mm color will do the job." - Christine
Then we all fell in love.
Below are the film shots I took after pulling a month long marathon watching the aforementioned director's work with Chellise.
Stay tuned, digi's coming soon…
