Greetings from Florida! I just flew in yesterday for my first destination wedding! So exciting! My very good friends Jessica and Craig are getting married tomorrow! I’ve never been to the south before, at least not in the East. I took this picture as we pulled into Fort Lauderdale. Once we got over Florida, the clouds were beautiful. From up here the high heat and humidity just seems worth it.
This evening we had a quick rehearsal, which I was thankful for because the light was a bit tricky, and I was invited to dinner as a guest at Buca di Beppo’s. Tomorrow, the lovely bride is getting ready at La Playa Resort and we have an whole hour to go around and take some pretty pictures! I could not be more thrilled! La Playa, you will find, if you follow the link, is such a beautiful and elegant resort, with lots of natural light coming through many high windows. I have to say that I really don’t mind if it rains. Not only will it quell the (feels like) 102 degree weather, but the rain clouds and possible utilization of umbrellas would be so awesome to work with! Some brides worry that it will rain on their wedding day, but I say bring it on! Let’s make some beautiful, unique wedding photos, lets get some umbrellas for kissing under, let’s get some rain clouds for setting scenes. I have informed Jessica of this, and she is happy to oblige if the situation warrants. That’s why I care for her very much.
Husbone is in Tennessee at the moment, making sweet music with various strung instruments. Weekends like this are nice, when both of us have to go away, and we miss eachother a little bit, and are excited to see eachother when we come home, but we’ve both been busy doing other things. I am a little bummed he won’t be around for some dancing time tomorrow evening, as he and I have been known to cut a rug beyond recognition. If I had nothing else in common with that man, I could have married him just for that!
And on a side note, Jessica and I are going to be on the Rachel Ray show! All I know is that it will be on a Thursday, and beyond that, I am not at liberty to say. I’ll tell you all about it when it airs. We already filmed it, and though brief, we got to hang out on the stage for a minute with Rachel Ray herself and a Celebrity Guest. Who is it you ask? Well… I can’t tell you that…
Check back Monday for pictures from this weekends wedding! See you soon!
