Sarah and Joe!

"I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold....
All I wanna do is be the man who
Grows old with you."

This weekend I had two beautiful weddings. The first, on Saturday, was for Sarah and Joe - the coolest police officers around! Special thanks to my excellent second-shooter, Peter Bang!

This song, sung by Adam Sandler nonetheless, is pretty much the perfect one for Sarah and Joe! They had this playing when they cut the cake, and it honestly captures them perfectly. A little sarcastic, a little whimsical and very, very real at the same time.

When I arrived, Sarah already had her hair done. Her make-up was done in about 5 minutes. Pop that veil on, jump into the dress and she was set! Honestly, the fastest bride ever to get ready!
Police-officer-brides are efficient that way, I guess :D

Poor flower girl... they switched baskets on her last minute, and it was quite disappointing :(

The wedding went perfectly, and the new husband and wife rode to the reception in a horse-driven carriage. How romantic???

The reception was in Joe's parents backyard. It was like something straight out of a movie. Absolutely beautiful!

He was my favorite. I hope that I am as happy and kickin' when I am the grandparent at a wedding!

When the announced the first dance, Sarah gently grabbed Joe's pinky and led him to the dance floor. He smiled a quiet little smile and the music began to play. It was probably the sweetest moment of the day.

Sarah looked so elegant dancing with her step-dad. But, she couldn't keep her eyes off Joe for long...

And he was pretty content to just watch her, too :D

I also thought it was so sweet that she danced with her grandpa. I hadn't seen a bride do that before, and it was such a great time!

So, I am kind of in love with her rings....

During the reception I grabbed Joe and Sarah for a few more pictures, because that light was heavenly!
