I find it a little boring to talk about the weather when it comes to a wedding because there’s so many other, way more important things going on…but planning an outdoor wedding in August is a gamble. Some of the hottest, stickiest weddings I’ve ever photographed were in August – but this day was a dream. Sunny, breezy, barely 80 degrees and a blue sky full of fat, fluffy clouds. Even after sunset, an enormous moon floated above the outdoor dance floor and if I could get every single wedding to feel just like this one…well, I wouldn’t complain. ;)
If Shane and Morgan look familiar, you can find them over at Cullan and Taylor’s wedding last summer where Shane gave one of the best toasts of all time (and, of course, Cullan returned the favor this time around). When Morgan was getting ready, I told her she seemed super calm and not stressed at all. She smiled, shrugged, and said, “It’s Shane, I don’t have anything to be stressed about.” YUP.
On a side note, Mrs. Ganley – if there’s some type of award for Most Precious Mother of the Groom she has won it twice over. I’m just hanging out in the corner with a zoom lens sobbing through the Mother/Son dance because now that I have a little boy the entire world looks different than before. I hope Brooks smiles and talks to me during our dance like your boys do.
Morgan and Shane – I love you both! Thanks for having me celebrate alongside you, it was one of the best! Also – huge shout out to Lettie + Selena at Elmwood B&B for taking the best care of not only the guests but the vendors, too. Hugs!
