Lori and Mike - August 17th

Sunday, August 19, 2007 - Weddings
Addition: 8/29/07

I have to apologize to a few of our couples as I wasn't able to get their full blog entries up before we left on the 19th. Now that we are back I can give you the lowdown on the images below.

Haha! Lori and Mike, we were sure looking forward to this wedding. Lori was the Maid of Honor in Alicia and Jamie's wedding last year. We had gotten all of these funny and goofy shots of her at Alicia's wedding. When we met with her and Mike late last year, she said that was one of the reasons she wanted to hire us. Because we caught her exactly as she is! She wasn't ashamed of being her silly self, and was looking forward to what we would capture of her on her own wedding day!

They had their ceremony and reception at Riverdale Manor here in Lancaster, and we were nervous that the ceremony would have to be moved inside. Around 1 PM a HUGE thunderstorm swept through the area and we thought for sure we would be indoors later that day. Fortunately its bark was worse than it's bite, as everything cleared up and was ready to go for the ceremony later in the afternoon.

Lori had some really kickin' details, and black and pink were thrown about the day. Lori also looked totally awesome, as her gown was a bit on the less traditional side and really flattering. She was a dream to photograph! We had a blast with everyone and got some great portraits and moments throughout the day. One of my favorites is the cake shot of Lori - there's that goofiness! Mike was a good sport through it all, and we even learned that they had been together for 11 years and were high school sweethearts. Even after all that time they were still lovey-dovey with each other!
