Earlier this month I was able to shoot this wedding for April and Erik. April is the sister of my friend/boss/sometimes-look-alike Kristi. This was such a fun wedding to shoot because it was super laid back. Everyone at this wedding had fun, enjoyed themselves, and celebrated with the couple. I hate a stiff wedding. This was not a stiff wedding. To make matters better, there was a dog in a suit.
Erik and April met in Memphis, where they both live. Erik owns and operates a food truck called Fuel Cafe, which is where he first met April. If you're ever in the Memphis area be sure to stop and check Fuel Cafe out. Fuel Cafe catered the rehearsal dinner for this wedding so now I can personally tell you that it is delicious. Everything they served was amazing.
I'm not quite finished editing this wedding, but here's what I have so far. Enjoy!
April's dress was really cool - it was basically TWO DRESSES! The sheer overlay is detachable so she got to do two separate looks for the ceremony and reception. Pretty cool idea...
Meet Zoom. He dresses fancy.
Here's some of the food from the reception, catered by Fuel Cafe. The wedding cake is a traditional Norwegian "Ring Cake" made by the groom's mother - who happens to be Norwegian. It was kind of like a cookie cake, but more like a biscuit than a chewy cookie. It was very almondy and delicious. I highly recommend it, even for non-Norwegians. :)
Miles hanging out with his dad Brad while he works on the script for the ceremony. Warning: There will be a disproportionate number of pictures of this kid. You might start to think "Hey, is this the kid's wedding?" No. I just really like him.
The bride's brother Robbie and sister Lexie sang a little song for the couple during the ceremony.
