work for a half day. did some interesting stuff. then i went home and changed into my suit for
shawn and sil's wedding.
met them and her sis @ their house and took pics, that shawn won't let me post.
we drove to city administrative buildings:
building #1 told us to go to
building #2 told us to go to
building #3 (they called ahead for us) two ladies in building #3 pointed out
building #4 the correct building!
woo. s+s filled out their apps, her mom had hired a professional photographer, so the stress was off of me for photo taking. which meant
i took video. it was a sweet little affair. silvaniecried throughout. a short time later (less than 3 minutes) they were vowed, ringed and married. zoe and i filled out our necessary witness fields and then we went to luther burbank gardens for more photos. on the way back to the car we went througha garage/clearance sale from jake's vintage shop over by moxie on south a. he had closed shop so the entire yard and drive were filled with neat things. silvanieand shawn bought something and got a newlywed discount. we went back to their house and shawn and i quickly moved out of suitcoat +shirt down to wifebeaters. huzzah. i left them alone and went back to my house to collect the girl for the receptional dinner later. it took a surprising amount of time between leaving work and getting back to my house. 5hrs. the photographs took the largest amount of time. i'll talk about the dinner later.
