Yes that's me there in the corner - hightailing it out of the photo, just a little too late.

Mike, in kindness and good faith, let me assist him at my cousin's wedding this past weekend. I mostly tried to stay out of the way (occasionally failing, as the above photo bears witness), fix Kristin's dress, marvel at Mike as he perfectly executed the photoshoot portion of the day (read = extremely attractive), and carry bags and coats. I did manage to snap some photos as well, of which Mike was highly complimentary. (Seriously, that man is just the nicest!)

The wedding was gorgeous, colourful, and crazily creative. Thanks for setting the bar so high for mine, dear cousin! ;) These two lovebirds have been dating forever so it was awfully nice to see them make it official.

There were some additional fun twists to the weekend which included somehow getting my seatbelt twisted around my waist. I got completely stuck, laughed hysterically until I cried and a convenience store employee had to use a wrench to undo the seatbelt.

I also chipped my tooth last night as I was tickling and playing with my niece and nephew. Never chipped a tooth in my life, so why not do it less than two weeks before they wedding?! It's not a huge trip, but it will unfortunately will be bit of a tricky fix.

In an effort to make me feel better, Mike commented that we can now go by "chipped tooth" and "snaggletooth" - an attractive combo, n'est-ce pas?

  3. the first photo shoot i ever assisted on I ended up in some of the shots. Now I've got one in pride of place in my office, it's a good memory. (and a great shot - in my opinion)

  4. Aww I love this post! And as for the whole chipped tooth situation, it never ceases to amaze me how little things like that always seem to happen the closer you get to the big day! I love the little nicknames too!

  11. i should clarify:
    "tooth smooth", in the sense that you will be so beautiful no matter what and it is nothing in the big picture... not "tooth smooth" in the sense that you are silly to care about it...

    i would have been so frazzeled had that happened to me!

    whos taking your photos again?
