When we met Sarah's family, I thought, "Grant is going to marry one of those girls." I wasn't sure which one, but I think I get credit for correctly predicting which family he'd marry into several years in advance. :-)
I was honored to document their backyard wedding (this was my first time shooting a wedding as head photographer! Whooopie!). Thanks to Wendy for second shooting with me - several of her images are used in this post! Grant & Sarah, may God bless your marriage and use you to further His kingdom!
They couldn't have me take their picture... :-)
They wanted to do a guitar shot... my dad says it looks like a band from the 50's. :-)
Sarah's ring is a family heirloom from Grant's family
The ring bearer has got this down pat!
This was pretty hysterical. Grant built this obstacle course in their woods so they thought it would be cool to get some photos of the guys on it... except Grant kept falling off. :-)
Sarah, you are so beautiful!
Everyone kept joking to Sarah that it wasn't too late to run... so Bekah wanted to get some funny shots of Sarah "escaping." :-)
Don't you love the pom poms in the trees?
During the ceremony they did an old Scottish tradition where the groom presents the bride with a sword, and the bride presents the groom with a Bible, as symbols of their pledges to protect and provide for their family
Grant had to pose like this when he was a ring bearer so he subjected his little brother to the same treatment. :-)
During dinner we slipped off for a few minutes to do Grant & Sarah's portraits.
They came up with this one :-)
Gotta love the naughty smiles :-)
