Recently my… hmmm… second cousin twice removed?… got married down South. They had a beautiful fancy wedding and have been enjoying wedded bliss since. Her mother, my…. second cousin???… decided they needed a party up here for all the people who weren’t able to travel to celebrate on the big day. So they threw an intimate, more casual affair right in their hometown. Close family and friends came and danced and laughed and it was an incredibly joyful night. Now, second cousins twice removed would not have been able to get on the small guest list… but when certain second cousins twice removed are professional photographers, they’re able to be hired to photograph the event for an incredible family. I’m so lucky I got to be there!
Aren’t they the most lovely family?!?!!? At their wedding they had a local professional photographer so they didn’t need intimate portraits of the couple or families. But I had to zip the immediate family outside for a couple shots. The grounds of Anthony’s on the Green at the Pinecrest Golf Club were too lovely to ignore!
P.s. I love that the bride snabbed a more casual white dress for this shindig. She’s wearing her original veil and came in on the same scooter (yes, you read that right, they entered their receptions on scooters), but the adorable shorter dress on this hot July day was the perfect switch.
So here’s the family connection: This beautiful lady below is my Mum (dancing with my Dad). She is first cousin of the Mother of the Bride. Making the Mother of the Bride my second cousin (I think) which I assume makes the bride my second cousin twice removed. If you know whether my summations are right or wrong, I’d love for you to comment either on this post or the Facebook page because I would love to know! Hahaha.
Thanks for asking me to be a part of your special day, my lovely cousins! I had the best time!
