It’s finally time for the Goose wedding recaps! Before I get into them, I wanted to get one review out of the way, so as not to end with a negative note, and to clarify why I made some of the photo choices I have, so please bear with me. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, and I wasn’t sure how to go about wording it. But I decided it was better to get this out of the way now, and not wait until the end.
You may notice, during my recaps, that I have a mixture of photos from our photographer, as well as personal photos from family and friends. This is because our photographer missed some key moments. As far as the ceremony, he and his second shooter managed to do the best they could with the rules set out by our rabbi and our synagogue’s off-site wedding restrictions, the main one being that they had to be set up at the back, behind the seating. However, some key moments that we had mentioned to our photographer ahead of time were missed during the reception as well, such as Father Goose handing the sword over to Gander during the Sword Ceremony, as well as not getting any posed portraits of just the Geese together. So, while we were happy with the quality, Gander and I definitely felt there was something lacking in the quantity and selection of photos.
