The day started out very drizzly and rainy, but thankfully everything was being held at the Toll House, so once arrived – everyone could break the ice over the wet trip over here and stay warm n’ dry the entire wedding night. The bride Mika was so extremely beautiful with bright floral bridal kimonos for her girls and herself – perfect for pictures! And the groom was ON SPOT with his posing when his turn came around.
Yeah, he pulled these poised poses off on the fly; as soon as I said what feeling I wanted from the picture, he just slipped into position and BAM! Perfect pose! A natural model. 🙂
They were this beautiful all night, all night!
Sometimes it’s really interesting to see how funky the guests get during the reception-dancing side of things. Everyone just lets loose…
As the bride and groom met during a dance class, he brought their common passion back to the floor with his entrance for the garter-toss being a sexy swirvy dance in front of his blushing bride. It was so hilarious to hear how the guests starting screaming their encouragement and she kept blushing, covering her face, and yelling for him to “Behave!”
As you can tell, the guests were great party fodder; with the garter-toss winner sporting the prize across his forehead all night long.
