Well, as you can imagine, our wedding was one of the most photographed in history I believe. Haha. At one point I looked out and 3/4 of the people had their cameras (sometimes 2 per person) trained on Mad and I... pretty weird to be on the opposite side of the lens I've got to say! It was really hard not to make stupid faces the whole day like we are used to doing. Our good friend and photographer Drew Noel did a great job capturing the day for us with our other friend Jim, as we have tons great shots from all angles. A couple of these are also from our friend Nick Evans and Uncle Pete as well! I'll post a few of my favorites, and link Drew's post on his website when he gets it published! Hope you like them as much as we like reliving the day.
a perfect shot by drew to sum up the wedding and reception - as mad themed it 'once in a blue moon' which took place on the 31st of August.
my sister emily helping mad with the dress through her Kodak Brownie (it's the name of the camera, not the snack)
of course maddie had her cameras with her ;)
a shot i grabbed as we got up for sunrise on our wedding day and realized we were going to have another day of beautiful weather!
loved this digital double exposure i got too
i couldn't imagine my wedding without a pizza, for real. thanks nick. guys have it tough getting ready on the wedding day :)

tilty snag of the guys by nick
great shot by drew of my beautiful maddie :)
lots of hugs, smiles, and tears
good spot for a dinner! couple details from nick
we did a lot of personal touches ourselves, but had to keep it minimal because bringing a wedding with you to fiji isn't a light task! many thanks to my family for lugging extra suitcases and bags around the islands with them :) ...and of course franks red hot made it on all the tables
great shot drew got of mad and i having a moment in the sunset
uncle roger, working wonders for the conga line
mad, drew, me and em
it was pretty awesome to watch friendships form over the week... like this pearler of a crew
so much time spent laughing and smiling our cheeks hurt the whole honeymoon
maddie looking beautiful having a dance with her dad
as a showing of gratitude and love towards their guests, fijians sing a song called "Isa Lei" to everyone. it is one of the most beautiful harmonies, and definitely brought out some late night tears when the reception was over!
and mad and i finishing it off. such a good day!!!
