Ever see a photo of someone and want to give them a hug? That’s how I feel about the guy who gives the shaves at Red’s Barber Shop… I haven’t met him as Mike is always the one who photos the guys getting ready… but I just know I adore him. So, to any of you out there who actually DO know this guy, give him a hug from bobbi, k? k.

I love Marie! I love her dress! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and I love window light, too ๐Ÿ˜‰

…something blue! There was not ONE detail that didn’t have serious thought put into. EEEKS! I ended that with a preposition… Let me try again. There wasn’t ONE detail that didn’t have significant meaning. Yeah… that sounded better… but still awkward. Oh well. You get what I’m saying, right?!

Coming from a bride who had a bouquet of red roses herself… I LOOOOVED all of the red details!!!! How cool are those leaves wrapping around the bouquet?

My FAMOUS hilarious jokes ๐Ÿ˜‰

OHHHH JAY! You are SO damn CUTE!

Marie’s engagement ring. I just learned that her diamond was Jay’s grandmothers reset into a custom setting.

This photo gives me goosebumps… it was such an awesome moment.

Right before the ceremony, for a split second… Marie’s dad leaned his head on Marie’s… didn’t say a word… but that gesture was all that was needed to tell her everything he needed to say.

This makes me laugh. ๐Ÿ˜€ Some trivia: ๐Ÿ™‚ The girl standing next to Jay… that’s Jessica, his sister ๐Ÿ˜€ We photographed her, along with her husband Ken, 3 years ago in our first ever “trash the dress” session. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m SUCH a fan of those two. They will forever and ever be in the bb+mk family. ๐Ÿ™‚

MEEEEEEEET TAYLOR… the bestdog ๐Ÿ˜‰ How stinking cute is this?!


Mike’s view… and his favorite โ“


I know what you’re thinking… “why fire socks?!” Marie gave them to him right before the walk down the aisle with a note attached, “these are so that you don’t get cold feet.” On that note… GROOMS… personalize your look with fun socks/your own shoes/an interesting tie/etc. Turn your rented tux into something that’s more you ๐Ÿ˜‰

I can’t get over how gorgeous you two are!

…Marie’s mom during Dad’s speech…

The first dance. And yes… I’m so predictable… this is my favorite โ—

What was your favorite moment?
All our favorite moments are totally cliche, you know the first moment, toasts blah blah blah. However I (Marie) did love Jay’s dance before the garter toss. Jay loved finally seeing what his gifts were from me. I bought them a loooooong time ago and they were sitting in the bedroom so he was being teased by them for awhile. You should know we are not very patient people.

Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Forget about your dream of a big wedding, pack up bobbi+mike and head to a tropical island with a small group of friends and family. Being around only your closest friends and family will make your day less stressful and so much fun.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Marie covered her dinner so that she could enjoy it after she got into her more relaxed reception dress. While on the dance floor, we noticed one of the groomsmen ate Marie’s entire dinner. He approached the table and looked around… then took just a small bite…. then another. After that, he just took a seat in her chair and polished off her whole plate.

Would you change anything?
Of course not!

What was your favorite wedding purchase?
We bought a brand new computer just so we could make the DVD slideshow shown during cocktail hour.



What was our favorite part of the day?
bobbi: I LOVED all of the red details, Marie’s gorgeous dress and Jay’s sweet smile. I also really enjoyed the portrait session time of just the two of you. The light was MONEY and you guys gave us plenty of time to make it happen. BOOOOYA!
mike: I’ve seen plenty of neat gifts for grooms, but Jay takes the cake for wedding swag!ย  New sunglasses, cologne, socks with huge flames (ostensibly to prevent cold feet), shirts for the honeymoon, AND a bottle of Blue Label Johnnie Walker. Sign me up.ย  Maybe for my tenth anniversary…

HAHAHAHA!!!!! See how those people are looking at him as he’s running past… ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I suppose it’s not every day you see a man in a black suit running through downtown with two big cameras! HAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!

When I’m posing others…. It seems that I like to pose it up, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

They’re all looking at me like I’m crazy. Maybe I am. Oh well, the resulting shot’s fun… SO BOOOOOYA NAYSAYERS!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
