I’ve been looking forward to Teddy and Janet’s wedding ever since they traveled to Tahoe last summer to visit and take engagement photos with me. They picked an amazing, fairly new venue, an unbelievably fantastic rustic barn in Quinlin, TX, just outside DFW, for their White Sparrow Barn wedding. They really wanted a big boisterous epic party and I knew they could bring just what they desired to their evening. I have to admit, I was woefully underprepared for what was to come at Teddy and Janet’s wedding day and to be honest, I think they were as unprepared as I was! Teddy’s family is large and hails from Liberia, Africa and even Teddy wasn’t sure how many of them were going to be in attendance. Over 200 wedding guests later, half of which were clad in beautiful and bright traditional African wedding attire, I came away with some amazing photos and a strong need to drink a beer. That being said, what seemed chaotic and disorganized while I was standing in the middle of it, went off in a wonderfully planned day that went exactly as it should have and insanely delicious food, all prepared by Teddy’s mother and her church group. The end result is going to be some wildly colorful wedding photos for this adventurous loving couple, but since I’m buried under editing, they probably won’t be ready until Thanksgiving week. Until then, here’s a few more than I normally share to hold you over.
Oh, and I almost forgot the best part: there should be no age limit to being a flower girl. Grandmothers as flower girls may just be the best thing ever.
