Come on…how often is an 80’s song title going to be applicable for a blog title ? In this case, BINGO. Morgan IS a scientist, a marine biologist getting her DOCTORATE in the subject as a matter of fact. But wait…don’t order yet because TODD IS ALSO the super smart science guy. This coule had Giant brains AND good looks, AND were fun and gracious and kind….YES ! The whole package folks !
Bonus : Catrina Maria Designs was their coordinator, she is just a gem, so talented and great to work with, a true professional. My BELOVED Matt from Extreme Pro D.j’s did took care of the entertainment. Matt is one of the best in the area, if you can get him to D.j your wedding, DO IT !
They were married at St. Francis Church and had their very elegant party in their Grandmothers STUNNING river front backyard. The talented and so very helpful Dustin Whitehead did the wedding with me. Thanks Dustin, you are one of the coolest people.
And we had Miss Tiffany ( who is just about the cutest most perky person in the world ) getting even MORE great images.
FEEL THE LOVE:
I promised Morgan that I would make her look like a super model….mission accomplished !
How priceless are the expressions on Mother and Daughters face ?
/a> Todd is doing his ‘ precious moments’ pose as that was his nickname in college. He DOES bear a striking resemblance.
The rare yawning and beaming in the same photo.
We loved how silly and play these two were, just an amazing match !
Talk about a view !
Cute shot by Dustin W ! Well…..ALMOST everyone had a great time ( funny, I love his teen angst )
FUN FACT : I realllllllllllly wanted to use the song ‘she blinded me with science’ for the SLIDESHOW, but it did not go with the photos. When will I ever get the change to use that song again ?
Just to be around these two, you truly FEEL THE LOVE. I absolutely adore these two ! Their wedding was FABULOUS. Yes, it was hot as could be, but we barley even noticed as the photo love was flowing and we had so much FUN.
While I was taking the getting ready photos, I realized I had taken photos of the wrong earrings, that started us talking about ‘fun facts’ about the wedding day. Here are a few of my favorite ‘fun facts’:
Shawna bought $50 dollars worth of lottery tickets to cash in on her wedding day good luck, but left them in the machine. So some lucky person got a big chunk of her wedding luck.
Her sister and mom sewed 1,000 flowers for the bouquets and wreaths.
The brides something old was her grandma’s AND great grandma’s virginity pin which was sewed into her bouquet.
Shawna was ALSO engaged to her best friends 6 year old son Gavin, who bought her a mood ring with his own money.
Their d.j, D.J Blaine The Sundance Kid , was a friend from grad school. He was a HUGE hit, great energy and really got the crowd moving.
Tim is an amazing person as well as a pilot, hence the location of their reception: the Areospace Museum.
Shawna has a blog where she tells everyone how cool I am ( she may write other things too, but I usually just focus on the ‘ I am cool’ parts.)
Not only does she get mistaken for Megan Fox, but Shawna is also one of the neatest people you will ever meet, and she has a giant brain and is in school to get her doctorate degree.
Tim and Shawna rule…and again I HAVE the photos to prove it:
So ‘ hot fashion model’ right ?
i thought this photos was just stunning.
I LOVE both of these photos
How much to you just love this gal ?
I was GOO GOO GA GA for this big bank of windows.
The image on the right took my breath away.
Note the sun flare is shaped as a heart, no photoshopping there, that was a natural occurrence.
FUN FACT: MY BOYFRIEND BRAD HAYNES LOVES IT WHEN I MENTION HIM IN MY BLOG : )

Liz Berkley ( a.ka Liz Biz-zerk-ley as Shannon and I nickname her ) is not ONLY smart and pretty, she is ALSO a talented opera singer and quite possibly one of the nicest people on earth. Her now husband Joe, also super nice, is also a talented musician, so how perfect is that. He really held up well while taking photos in the extreme heat : )
This was one of the best weddings ever, a match made in heaven. Yes….Liz IS a nice Catholic girl….but that did not mean she was not up for some of my ‘funky stuff’ on her special day.
The amazing Shannon of Flourish and now Fancy Pants Weddings blog made the day beautiful with her floral art and fresh ideas. and Brandon and Kami from Sound Image are just a BLESSING to any wedding. Super duper great to work with, Kami was even helping me with my equipment whilst 8 months pregnant. I love my vendor friends, they make my life and photos more beautiful.:
Ahhh, there were sooo many of these from the Sac City Ink tattoo shop that I wanted to post, priceless. How much do you LOVE Liz Berkley ? The owners of this shop went out of their way to be nice to us. MUCH APPRECIATED !
See….I CAN shoot a super traditional style too : )
These are the moments that melt my heart !
Fun fact :
the lady with the great expression is my aerobics instructor, she is the BEST !
More fun facts you ask ? Liz’s friend handmade the earrings to match each girls personality
