The 12th Rose – Anna & Warren

I have to admit, it didn’t look good on the evening of August 14th. Bands of thunderstorms were sweeping across the state, and they were moving toward the lake side wedding of Anna and Warren. Have a look at the weather radar from the day. The white arrow is pointing right where the wedding was supposed to be. Red, by the way is “heavy” rainfall.

With all of the guests filling every room in the house, waiting, the hour of the wedding came and passed. Rain still falling. But at half past 7:00, the clouds relented and the wedding of Anna and Warren began. They are my first couple to request all black and white wedding imagery. (I think they’ll like the color versions too…) Anyway, here are a few from their very special day.

Sorry, have to break in a second here. On their first date, before Warren knew that Anna does not like roses at all, he bought her a dozen of them. However he took out one rose before their date. Anna, being Anna, noticed that there were only eleven roses. Warren told her, “You only get the 12th rose if we get married.” This is the surprisingly romantic Warren holding the 12th rose that he presented to Anna later that night. (She LIKED that one!)

    Glad to see the rain stopped, also glad you still gave them the color versions… Black and white’s are timeless but color is also nice…. Your a great wedding photographer… Love the Corvette!

    I love these wedding shots! I’m sure your client is thrilled with these, I know I would be! I’m a newborn (maternity) photographer in Rhode Island and hope I convey the same emotion in my images as you do in yours!
