I have been too slow about posting pictures from the weddings that I have done these past couple of years. I need to start posting more often to catch-up on sharing with you the amazing weddings and events with which I have had the pleasure of being involved.
To start with,I need to borrow from Photo Love Stories blog (Amy and Natasha are great to work with) the story behind Anthony and Kristi’s wedding. “Anthony and Kristi met over six years ago (well,this year it’s over seven years ago – Olga) while working at the fire department. Initially they were at odds with each other. Kristi explained that at one time,her favorite line was… “Shut up Miller!” But he was a goofy man,and he made Kristi laugh. Kristi became Anthony’s lead instructor for his EMT-B class and he was hot for teacher. Since those early days,they’ve been on numerous calls together including structure fires,car and motorcycle accidents,life-saving medical calls,gas leaks,rescues,etc.” I think this perfectly describes the unusual roots of a wonderful relationship.
The ceremony and reception took place at the Garden’s Bed and Breakfast. “Anthony and Kristi’s Scottish inspired wedding included elements of fire to honor their profession. Their white wedding cake was trimmed with “flames” and topped with a firefighting bride and groom. The bouquet included orange and red flowers. The bride wore red shoes and a wedding dress detailed with red. There was even a fire engine … all to honor the men and women who put their lives on the line each day.
The “Bridesmen” (not Bridesmaids) and Groomsmen lined the path taken by their friend and co-worker as she descended the staircase to tearfully embrace her father. Kristi was gorgeous as she walked toward Anthony,followed by a line of men dressed in kilts … and yes,the sound of bagpipes filled the air. What a marvelous ceremony to honor their union,the circumstances which brought them together,and the brave individuals with whom they work!”
…and please remember,never play with a fire
