Hitchin' Time

Kara and Shawn, good friends of ours, were married last weekend. We were some of the few and lucky non-family members invited to attend.

They rented an out-of-the-way cabin near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and had a family reunion style weekend event. Althought it looks nice in the photo, by mid-afternoon the sky had darkened and it was raining. The wedding was moved indoors.

I had a dual role behind the scenes of the wedding. Long before the wedding, I altered the dress. The inset on the skirt was a drab champagne color that just didn't agree with Kara's color theme. I removed it and replaced it with a gunmetal silver crepe finish satin.

Once the appointed wedding time rolled around, I was the official photographer. The only reason they hired me was the fact that Kara, a fairly accomplished photographer, couldn't take her own wedding photos without them missing that little "something" that makes wedding photos beautiful.

Obviously Shawn wasn't dressed for the big occassion at the time this photo was taken. He did don his silver shirt and shined boots in time to exchange vows before their families.
Don't they make a handsome couple?
