We at Fotowerks always ask our brides if they would like an unplugged wedding. And that is simply that ALL the wedding guests are asked to put away their phones, pads, digital cameras etc. so that the professional photographers and videographers can do their jobs.
Seems that this bride didn’t tell her wedding guests to put away their digital devices. Take a look at what turned out to be the brides step-mom deliberately walk in front of the paid photographer during the kiss! We give kudos to photographer Ashley Easterling for shouldering her way past this intrusion to ensure that she got the shot!
Brides, we ask all of you…consider having an unplugged wedding. There are no do overs for you wedding day.
Wedding Photographer Pushes Stepmom Aside to Get the Shot
On September 27th of 2018, Cathleen and Vince got their fairytale wedding at The Sterling Castle. Their ceremony was as unique and fun as they were with a handfasting and a maypole dance.
The couple wanted their guests to have an active role in their marriage so the guests danced around the maypole, braiding the cord that would be used in their handfasting during the ceremony.
The reception hall was beautifully decorated with candles, books, and roses. During the reception, you could see the love that Cathleen and Vince had for each other and anyone that even glanced at the two would see that their marriage would be a loving and caring one.
Kortney and Grants journey started years ago when they met through mutual friends when they were just teenagers. They’re friends invited both to their lake house and apparently tried setting them with different people. Thankfully for Kortney and Grant, neither of them came on the trip and they spent all day in a kayak baking in the sun.
Then one day Grant took Kortney to her favorite restaurant where he had requested a private booth. She always joked around about him proposing so when he looks at her and said, “I have to ask you something,” of course she jokingly said, “Alright. Go ahead and propose.” Well, she just about choked when he actually starts getting down on one knee and pulled out the most beautiful ring she’d ever seen. It was the most magical and surreal moment she’s ever experienced.
When the big day finally came, they couldn’t have been happier. They had a beautiful ceremony at Red Gates at Kelly Creek decorated by the staff at Red Gates and flowers by Flowers from the Heart. When Grant, dressed in a handsome blue suit by Mr. Burch Formal Wear, saw Kortney in her dress from David’s Bridal for the first time that day, the love that was radiating off of him could be felt by all of their family and friends. After the ceremony, the couple had a private moment to relax and eat the food provided by Happy Catering before they went to the reception to dance in front of their friends and family to songs played by their DJ Puttin’ On the Ritz. After dancing the night away and having fun with friends and family, Kortney and Grant were sent off to their honeymoon under a shower of sparklers.
On September 8th, 2018, Cameron and Austin tied themselves together in holy matrimony at South Highland Presbyterian Church. Cameron was a vision when she walked down the aisle in her dress from The Vows bridal shop.
After the “I do’s” everyone followed the couple to the reception held at B&A Wearhouse where the couple danced and celebrated the night away to music played by Even Odds. At the end of the night, the couple was sent off under a shower of sparklers where the drove off in a horse-drawn carriage.
We wish them all the love, laughter, and happiness in the world for the years to come.
