Gene + Wendy : Washed Away

October 6, 2009

I thought it only fitting that Gene and Wendy’s wedding day was wet.  It went right along with the theme of the proposal!  Albeit their proposal was on the ocean floor where it’s suppose to be wet!  But for a groom that’s not afraid to take his engagement ring 60 feet under the surface of the ocean and for a bride who’s not afraid to say ‘yes’ to a scuba diver rain would be ideal!

And I have to say, it did not dampen anyone’s mood!

If you’re an up and coming bride who’s terrified that rain will ruin your wedding take a look at the Wendy and Gene’s day and fear no more. It was beautiful, romantic and more than unique!

I love this next image of dad putting on his tie and his son’s shoes waiting to be filled.
Meet their precious son Cael, waiting for the big day to start.

Wendy, you’re beautiful!

Cael was a little doll during the ceremony which had full mass.
The happy family just moments after saying ‘I do’!

A trooper of a wedding party. You know you have great friends when they spend a fortune on their outfit and are still willing to brave the elements for you!

We captured this next image, which happens to be my favorite of the day, after their wedding car broke down and caused us to be an hour late for the reception. My car was across town and it was raining to hard for us to go anywhere! These are what memories are made of right?! Of course.

Finally on our way back into town to greet some 300 starving guests.

And one last stolen moment before the dancing began.

Wendy and Gene, I hope you are thoroughly enjoying your honeymoon! You deserve it. It truly was a beautiful and unique wedding day that I was blessed to be a part of!!
