Sometimes being a good photographer in Stillwater (or anywhere) means you know when the bridal party needs to just stop taking pictures and chow down on mac ‘n cheese pizza from Quickfire Pizza… Their ceremony was on The Avalon Riverboat without food, and when we started the creative time it was pretty clear that almost everyone needed food. So we spent 45 minutes just feeding our faces and having drinks in downtown Stillwater on a balmy day, and man did it hit the spot!
From the moment we met Brason and Lindsey, we had the feeling that there was going to be a whirlwind of fun, craziness, and spontaneity surrounding their wedding. We showed up for an engagement session, got to meet “Pile” the dog, and five hours later we had taken about 600 engagement pictures (mostly due Jason’s erratic driving while Lindsey and Brason were tubing!). Epic.
Lindsey had an AMAZING statement piece designed by Marlaina Stone, and she had them made for each of her bridesmaids’ personality. The massive clasp is what we put the rings around for the ring image. We also grabbed a very cool image of Lindsey laying on the ground that I love – it was inspired by the crazy carpet pattern on the Avalon. It was funny that a couple of her relatives though she had fallen or passed out when we were taking the shots – sorry about that! 🙂
Some other fun random memories: Brason had a puppy pattern tie, the bridesmaid threw their wilted bouquets over the edge of the boat, Chris polished of many people’s beers at the pizza place, the bridal party was flown into the groom’s dinner on Jimmy Buffet’s former plane, the 45 second ceremony (after processional), the bottle of Dom Pérignon on the bride’s room, Lindsey spilling pizza on her dress, rooftop after after party, but MOST of all was the HEIGHT of the bridal toss images at Pioneer Park! So the award for this wedding goes to the highest bridal toss ever, by any wedding party anywhere I’m sure.
It was such a pleasure working with you guys, Lindsey and Brason – thanks for letting us be a part of your lives to capture these images! – Judd and Josh
