While Mr. Toadstool and I were taking our couple portraits, our three groomsmen arrived, right on time. In the distance I could see them occupied with something, and it was not until two days later while checking my sister’s facebook that I found this pics and figured out what they were doing.

Then, we took a little break so they could say hi, and by that I mean ambush Mr. Toadstool.
Then it was time for them to join the fun.
We call this one the bowling pins shot.
I once saw (I am sure it was in one of Mrs. Doe’s recaps) a photo of the dapper dudes walking all manly towards the camera, and I had to have that shot. I mean, when am I going to have them all dressed up in front of a photographer again? So, I lined them up and told them to walk towards the camera.
And then, I lost it. My brain couldn’t process looking at them all dressed up, all grown up. So I just broke into a crazy, I-can’t-breathe laugh.
Right after this, I was on the floor gasping for air.
And then, they just got goofy.
Let’s play “Throw the groom into the air”
A bit later the girls arrived, and it was go time. We had very little sunlight left and it was time for guests to arrive, so we had to be fast.
Sex And The City shots.
And one with everyone.
And finally, my favorite. I am so glad Alberto remembered to recreate this shot, because it wast in my forgotten “must have” list. Remember the importance of sharing your photo list with your photographer.
In our video, you can see the guys succeeded in pulling Mr. Toadstool all the way to the ground.
Married ladies, did you find it odd to see your friends all dressed up on your wedding day?
