CAROLINE + JOE - Thompson House and Gardens Wedding

Joe & Caroline had a touching Episcopalian ceremony with... yes, yes... wait for it... a masquerade reception! Caroline & Joe are theater folk and wanted this to be the inspiration for their big day. With the help of Jessie & On from the Thompson House and Gardens, the decor was spot on! Throughout the entire day, I kept thinking... I feel like I'm in a dream world of The Phantom of the Opera (great show). Congratulations to this rockin' couple!

And a minor tangent: how fitting that I should post this wedding today when the hubs is taking me to the theater (again!) tonight? : )

Love this shot of Joe and his bro.

This lil man had everyone cracking up during the ceremony...

...including the bride's brother. : )

Gotta LOVE a good jumping shot. Props to the ladies for getting UPS in those long dresses!

Caroline & Joe had a romantic side and a playful side... so endearing to document this dynamic.

Hilarious shot of Joe about to "toss" the garter. NOTE: he did NOT actually let this go at the baby. : )

Oh, you know... impromptu wrestling match in the middle of the dance floor. Happens at every reception! (Sarcasm at its finest.)

I was kinda obsessed with this kid. SO CUTE!
