The other side

Me and the kids live!

It was so weird.

There I was, as usual, enjoying the experience of being with the bride and groom on their wedding day. Only this time, I was on the other side.

My dear friends Gabriel and Carly asked me to be the officiant at their wedding. Yep, that’s right. I was the guy who said “you may kiss the bride”. And it was crazy. I was nervous but in the end it was so fun.

One of the reasons I had such a blast was because my good friends Jasmine Star and her husband JD were shooting the wedding. The wedding day itself was cool and the couple were gorgeous. But, it was the superstar photographers that really stood out to me. If you don’t know Jasmine yet (which I doubt), you soon will. She is literally bursting on the scene this year and is tearing it up!

It was also a total treat to sit back and watch someone else’s slideshow at a wedding. Good times!

The funny thing was, I didn’t know what to do with myself. The whole time I’m thinking, “I’m supposed to be somewhere right NOW!”

Anyway, at the end of the ceremony, I couldn’t handle it any longer and before I “announced for the very first time Mr. and Mrs. Gabriel Davis”, I literally stopped everything, whipped out my own camera and got shot of my own (see above). Jasmine got one too … so fun!

Getting in the game

Keep it simple.
