Josh & Laurissa’s Britannia Yacht Club Wedding
I’ve been looking forward to shooting Josh & Laurissa’s Britannia Yacht Club wedding since we first met and talked about their wedding plans. I love when couples bring sentimental notes into their wedding plans. These guys have a great little story. They had their first date at Britannia Yacht Club, so it was only fitting to come full circle and tie the knot at Britannia too.
The weather forecast for their wedding day had been threatening a thunder storm for several days, due to a severe heat wave. And let me tell you, it was quite the scorcher. However, we were blessed that it didn’t rain at all. Yay! They had sun with some clouds and a nice breeze coming off the water. It was such a pretty scene by the water, with the boats going by and the birds flying above.
It was hot the entire day and everyone was trying to keep cool. I must mention how nice Laurissa’s mom was with Michelle and I. She made sure that we stayed hydrated in the heat by bringing us drinks. And later on she told me to make sure to drink and eat. If she’s like that with complete strangers, I can only imagine how much of a wonderful mom she was and is to her children and family.
I liked at the end when Josh and other family members dressed up in tuxedo t-shirts. It was awesome. So they were free to let loose on the dance floor and still be in their suits. Wink. Wink.
Josh and Laurissa, it was a pleasure to shoot your wedding photos. You both looked fabulous and it was a truly beautiful day. Good luck in all of your future adventures as husband and wife. 🙂
