kara & dan: the desmond

Gosh it sure feels good to get out there and shoot! What better than a bride and groom who wanted to go into the snow too? Love that! Kara and Dan, brought their A-game to this one folks...

Saturday March 23rd was a beautiful day. Who would think in late March there would still be snow on the ground? I know! I thought we were all done with the snow. The snow on the ground actually hooked us up quite nicely, all the extra light and the fact that it hid all the dead grass was a plus. Did I mention Kara was awesome about going in the snow? Oh I did? Well I’m gonna say it again. This bride to be (at the time) was all sorts of game for fun in the snow. I hope this continues to be the trend for 2013 (not the snow). After our first look and all the bride and groom photos it was time to head inside, warm up and get married. After that it was time to party! That’s where Kara’s “Uncle Cap” as in veteran and legendary DJ Cap Capello came into play. Anyone who knows weddings in this area knows of Cap Capello and as always he rocked the house.

Kara and Dan, thank you both for trusting us with your wedding! Hayden and I had a blast working with you both, your friends and your family. I wish you many many years of the very best. Congrats!
