One of the things I love about weddings is that no two weddings are completely alike. While we may not have “seen it all”, Ryan & I’s combined wedding experience either as a guest, a bridal party member, or photographer brings us pretty close. Last weekend, though, we witnessed not one, but two wedding firsts. While a lot of couples choose to exit their ceremony to bubbles, Courtney & Blake had their guests shower them with…birdseed! Let me tell you, I was picking birdseed out of my hair all night long. Then, during the reception, all the single ladies hit the dance floor for the traditional bouquet toss. Normal, right? That is until I realized Courtney’s grandmother wanted to test her fate as well. While she may not have caught it bouquet, it was the sweetest thing to watch. Weddings are just the coolest. Congratulations to Courtney & Blake—I hope you had the best first day as husband & wife.
