The guys took a few minutes to warm up inside the venue, and then Zak quickly gathered the whole wedding party to go back outside for a group shot. With snow accumulating very quickly, dangerous driving conditions, and the early arrival of some guests, we had a record-setting quick shoot with the 20 people who made up our wedding party, and of course the dog.
Zak recruited a couple brave volunteers to stand on the two corners of the road and request that drivers slow down for our wedding-party pictures. We got friendly honks and a few celebratory hollers from passing cars. Or maybe people just thought we were nuts?!
The snow was coming down so hard at this point, so kudos to our wedding party (especially the little ones!) and the photographers for sticking it out with us and providing these shots!
High on our list of photo requests were pictures with Zeus, our dog-of-honor. We made it a priority to be able to have him at our wedding, and it was like he knew he had a special role that weekend. He was such a good boy all weekend long. He rocked that tie proudly, he listened to anyone who requested he behave, and he even posed for important pictures. We felt so lucky to have him there with us, representing all of our pets on our wedding day, and I have no doubt the day wouldn’t have been the same without his big, goofy presence. After our wedding party booked it for the warmth of the venue, we took a few special moments with Zeus and got these amazing pictures.
We got him situated and gave him lots of praise…
At which point he rewarded me with a big sloppy kiss…
All the stars aligned, and insisting our big dog be a part of our wedding was all worth it when Zak captured this perfect picture.
ï»¿And with that perfection, we called “formals” a success and got to head inside to mingle with our wedding party and family before the ceremony.
