[Rockstar Couple] Kelly & Joe's Heavy Metal, Hula Hooping Wedding! (Windham, NH)

I met Kelly many years ago, on various roadtrips to various music festivals with various boys in their various bands. I did a lot of youthful drinking with Kelly and when she asked me to shoot her wedding, I knew our no-drinking-at-work policy was in for a test.

I also knew the photos would be absolutely hilarious...

Kelly and Joe chose Castleton in Winham, NH for their ceremony and reception site and elected to do a First Look with us. It was a cool, overcast day and everyone was smiling.

Kelly wore her Grandmother's garter and a beautiful dress from David's. Her party was clad in navy blue and tattoos.

Their ceremony was BEAUTIFUL. They were wed by their friend John(on his birthday). They combined sand from Revere Beach and Pearly Pond, where they each grew up. They had three beautiful readings: Harmony read "In the Arc of Your Mallet" by Rumi (Sufi poet), Carolyn read "sonnet xvii" by Pablo Neruda and Tim read 1st Corinthians 13. Anne sang a beautiful rendition of In This Heart by Sinead O'Connor. It was divine, there were many tears and everyone had a laugh while Joe left Kelly anxiously waiting for her ring.

The Photobooth was a big hit during the cocktail hour. Maid of Honor, Angela and Groomsman Tom model some mustache...

And then it was time to party! Kelly and Joe had their first dance to Patience by Guns N Roses and invited their guests to join them on the floor. The toasts were full of laughs and tears and not long after dinner the hula hoops came out!

We ended the night with a college group shot! Kelly and Joe
We had a GREAT time. Thanks you Kelly and Joe for allowing us to photograph your wedding, we were honored and we wish you a lifetime of love!
Oh and thanks for screwing up our no-booze-at-work policy.
