We wrapped up the month of June with 6 weddings! Some were preplanned, and some were last minute. It happens like that sometimes. Like the guy who called me one morning and asked, "Do you accept walk-ins?" I replied, "well, I would if I had a place to walk into, but we are location only." I went on to explain to him that I certainly could do a last minute wedding, but that my "chapel" was wherever he wanted to get married, not a brick and mortar permanent location. We set the wedding for later that afternoon, and it was wonderful. No photos though.
Unlike Gordon, who although he was planning to elope, wanted a bit more lead time and photos. He called a few weeks before the wedding, wanted the Elopement Special, and said he wanted a religious ceremony. I got a bit more information from him, while fiance Sairie, participated in the background of the call. I was already getting a sense of the connection between these two and suspected this might be a fun wedding.
Sure enough, we showed up at the appointed time and place to find a huge presence in Gordon, a serene presence in Sairie, and both of them exhibiting a sense of humor.
I told Gordon that he reminded me of John Wayne and he said, "I get that a lot."
It was a beautiful day for a wedding! Here are some of the photos, I hope you enjoy them.
Venue: Logan Shoals Vista Point
