Welcome to the long awaited wedding blog post of Chris and Maria!
One of the things you'll recognize right away is how close this couple is with their family as well as their friends. This is Maria's brother... making sure that his suit is straight!
And then the Man of Honor is one of Maria's closest friends from her school years!
Next I should introduce Maria's son! Check out these awesome cuff links!
One of the things we realized as their wedding day approached was that there really wasn't any way that it wasn't going to rain that day. It had been pouring for days before and the forecast called for rain days for days afterwards. So we got super creative with the photos! We did a few indoors, we did some underneath the porch that had a roof and then of course, we brought umbrellas!
And here are the guys that stood up with Maria on her side! I guess you can call them her Bridesmen!
And now let me introduce Chris, the groom!
What a fun bunch of guys... the kind that are super helpful and don't give the poor photographer a hard time about taking pictures.
I think Chris is helping Maria's son with a Superman pose!
I thought it was the sweetest thing that Maria's son walked her down the aisle and then gave her away to Chris.
A great alternative to getting married on the deck when its cold, rainy and windy is to hold the ceremony in front of the cozy fireplace.
Way to dip her Chris!
And here's an impromptu family photo... snapped when no one realized I was snapping!
Like I said, we got creative with our photos and Chris and Maria really played it up! I love the expressions in some of these photos!
Umbrellas are typically a good idea unless its really windy... and you're walking against that wind! Then they tend to be rather useless.
So in that case, you use your umbrella as a shield against the wind!
And then with just Chris and Maria, we made sure to make it down to the forest where they especially wanted to do pictures.
Introducing the new Mr. & Mrs!

Purple suspenders!... but wait until you see what shirt he has on underneath his dress shirt!!!
Cutting the Wedding Cake
It was all around a really great party!
Being the crazy Harry Potter fan that I am, I couldn't let this one go! Maria's son had a shirt on with the Marauder's Map on it! So awesome.
Chris and Maria even got their sparkler exit pictures in!
We braved the wind and rain for a few last, romantic photos.
Congratulations to you both! Molly and I had a great time with you,your friends and family and were also so glad to be able to capture your wedding memories for you!
