Rain, rain GO AWAY! On the real, haven’t we all had enough of the rain? It was cute a few weeks ago but the honeymoon is over. Move out, go home and stop raining on our brides and grooms! That being said we still went out and did our thing for Erin and Tim while getting wet and almost blown away by the tropical storm, I think her name was Andrea?

Can I just start out by saying I love these two? I’ve known them since 2010 when Tim’s sister, Natalie (& Ryan) tied the knot. Since then we’ve all hung out and frequented many Dave Matthews Band concerts together, plus they also have a French Bulldog (Lucy) who is awesome.

June 7th, 2013 was Erin and Tim’s big day. We hopped in the car around 9:30am and headed south. Around 12pm we were greeted in the hotel lobby by wedding planner Katie O’Malley and her team! (I’m going to go on a bit of a “I love wedding planners rant here”.) I’ll say without the help from Katie O’ and her team a lot of what we captured would have been extremely difficult, if not impossible. Not only did they have an umbrella everywhere we went, they managed to keep everyone on time and photo fresh. The biggest thing they did was when I had the brilliant idea of bringing Erin and Tim over to this castle on Glen Island in the rain, Katie made sure the bus was ready to go and many umbrellas were there to keep them as dry as possible. Mind you it was raining SIDEWAYS! I certainly could not have done that by myself. I could go on and on but I’ll again remind all you brides and grooms out there how valuable it is to hire a professional wedding planner.

Erin and Tim’s ceremony was great, the music they chose was very much them. I’m sure the church lady would crack me in the knuckles catholic school style with a ruler for saying this but I love when couples tailor their ceremony music around their style and move away from your traditional church music. It’s what we all remember. After the ceremony it was off to the Glen Island Harbour Club for a party! But before all that photos needed to be taken. I believe the rain forced us to get more creative inside and for that reason we all especially love their bridal party photo. Once all photos were done the cocktail hour began and it was time to have fun. Their entertainment, The Jay Biddy Band rocked this one. Again, a perfect fit for Erin, Tim, their friends and family. I very much enjoyed shooting this party.

I’ll wrap up by saying it was an honor shooting our second wedding for the Staples family. You guys are my favs! When the time should come we’re all ready for Becky and Carmine’s, and no it’s not a buy two get one Natalie ;). The Peterson’s as well were such a nice family which makes sense because Erin is such a sweetie. Mr Tim and Erin Staples, we all wish you the best in the years ahead. Here’s to more French Bulldogs (or babies), DMB shows and lots of crazy love. THANK YOU!

My #1 favorite from the day….
For like 5 minutes it stopped raining but the wind was on some other stuff and damn near blew us away so we went back inside.
The ballroom…

Instead of numbers their table names were appropriately names of Dave Matthews Band songs.
