A 4th of July Wedding - Randi and Ben!
Oh yeah, oh yeah! If we were going to spend the 4th of July shooting a wedding, it was going to be for someone special. And who else than the Larson family? We photographed Kelly and Greg's
wedding last summer, and when Randi contacted us for her wedding, we certainly wanted to accept! We loved working with their entire family and knew that another wedding would be a blast - and we weren't disappointed!
Randi and Ben were just so pleasant and easy-going - nothing really phased them about the wedding day. We had gorgeous weather right up until the reception - and then it rained steadily the rest of the evening. The ceremony was at their church in Morrisville, and the reception followed at Normandy Farms in Blue Bell. To follow tradition, we had some friendly athletic competition between members of the wedding party (fence-climbing, what else?) - and then spent the evening tearing up the floor.
I wish there were more Larson girls to be married, Randi is the last - we just love working with them all so much!
Randi has a really stunning dress, she looked just amazing in it.
Randi's dad and Ben's dad - there was serious business going on with the men getting ready...
And the gals arrived and were ready in no time flat - I really like this shot of all 3 sisters together.
Ben trying to figure out his cuff links in the church corridor.
These 3 are just so fun together!
We found this great barn right next to the church, it goes perfectly with their dresses, and I just love how they are all standing, just fits so well.
The beautiful Randi!
Ben was a pretty serious guy. We kept on trying to get him to bust up laughing, and we would only really get a quick smile for a split second - until this shot that is! Joel of course did something very Joel-like - and Ben reacted accordingly. I was so glad I was there to get this, what a great expression!
How rad are these shoes?
Ah, yes, the ceremony and first glimpse!
As soon as these two recessed down the aisle, they snuck into a room and Joel caught this...
They were having WAY too much fun up there...
This is not something you see your average bride doing on a daily basis. All of the sisters hopped the fence, and Randi of course couldn't let them outdo her...even in a wedding dress - off she goes!
A little bit of July 4th theme - flags were all over the place, and Kelly and one of the groomsmen were using them to their full potential.
Instead of your normal blank guest signature book, Randi had a book of photos from New York, and had guests sign in the book. It was a really cute idea. We did a couple of ring shots using some of the photos in the book. I liked this one the best. :)
These guys were great - and kept the floor full all night!
I love this shot...
There are ALL of the Larson girls - Randi and her sisters and her mom- they were carrying on something fierce while Ben was dancing with his mom!
Cupcake cutting time!
ooooh and these looked sooo yummy! Mini ice cream cones!
I don't even have a clue...really I don't...
Even though the guests weren't able to use the sparklers earlier because of the rain, we had a pack to play with at the end of the night for Randi and Ben's last shot. This one is so cool!
