Justin & Melinda | Wedding

Last month we witnessed the union of Justin Ryken and Melinda Sanford. It was a lovely wedding (I have not been to an unlovely wedding to date) with a beautiful outdoor reception at the bride's home. It was a little chilly, but bearable. :-)

I was not the official photographer, but Melissa and Jessica, who were, kindly let me snap away as much as I wanted.

The lighting in the church was difficult, with the yellow tones of the lights plus the blue tones from the stained glass windows! Someday I am going to build The Wedding Church, which will feature perfect lighting for any setting. :-)


All right, forgive me as I indulge my love for detail and give you multiple cake pictures. :-) The gorgeous cake and cupcakes were made by the talented Grace, who should go into business, I think.

The maid of honor giving a very sweet speech.

I love that naughty expression on her face!

And they're off amid showers (and in one case, a deluge) of birdseed. :-)

Congratulations, Justin & Melinda!
