Stephanie and Joe’s Grounds For Sculpture Wedding

Clearly fate smiles on Stephanie and Joe — every wedding I’ve had so far this year have had outdoor ceremonies moved indoors by rain, cold, or blistering heat. And it did rain on their wedding day … 30 minutes after the ceremony. So they got all the luck of folk tales as well as a gorgeous outdoor wedding at the incredibly cool Grounds For Sculpture, a wide area where sculpture is integrated into not only wide park areas but also the surrounding town.

It also is apparently home to a family of some very tenacious peacocks, who I feel were the mascots of the wedding in sort of a “groundhog-from-Caddyshack” way.

Stephanie and Joe were awesome; the wedding was touching, fun, and crazy on the dance floor, just how I like it. Congratulations, you two.

    Superb collection. I have to say that the tree-lined path shot is possibly my favourite wedding shot EVER! Magic!

    Damn. You have captured the whole wedding with a true painterly feel – A little Degas in the tree lined path, a little Money in the ceremony, and perhaps a touch of Dali in the dancing.

    Ha, that should totally read “Monet”. I guess it is money as well :)
