Sarah & Damien… where do I start? This wasn’t a typical wedding for me. These are my friends. It was casual. I cried A LOT.
Sarah is a budding photog herself and some of you may recognize her as my right hand lady at various shoots and weddings. Regular blog readers have seen them both on here shortly before they became engaged, when I snapped two of Sarah completely enraptured at one of Damien’s shows (you will be too when you hear his music). At the time Sarah was managing his tour and about to embark on one together, just the two of them. We ran into each other at Whole Foods and I think it was Damien who said they’d come home either miserable or married. I had no doubt it would be the latter and thankfully they waited to do the ceremony in town so I could shoot it!
They threw one of the last hurrahs at the McLeod Residence on a Sunday, potluck style, with friends contributing in every way possible. I’d list the total amount they spent on their wedding but I don’t want to give my brides a heart attack. Let’s just say they put the resource in resourceful.
Sarah & Lauren warmed up by belting “Since You Been Gone” out on the street for arriving guests.
With the bride ready to settle down, Christine Cherbonnier took over make-up duties.
Damien is not your average tie wearing guy.
Hott lady shoes!
Getting it together.
I think she’s ready!
Maybe not. One last touch up! (and a chance to show you Christine’s sexy dress)
Some mother love.
Waiting patiently for his first look.
Pretty darn cute.
Damien’s son Myles served as the panda / ring bearer.
I dare you not to cry in the face of this. He said it was the happiest day of his life.
Logically, a smoke break follows.
Damien is such a cake tease.
Speaking of this delicious vegan cake, it was handmade by Jamie from Husbands Love Your Wives.
Myles gets the toasts going.
We can dance if we want to.
Sandy mom starts the party!
Ms. Roper (who happens to be responsible for getting Robin & I together) gets down. Go Roper!
Scary lady. Don’t let her near a camera.
Congratulations Sarah & Damien!! I love you both to pieces. Now let’s start the baby makin. I need more Jurados to photograph!
