“Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won’t adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words “make” and “stay” become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.” -Tom Robbins

I had the wonderfully unforgettable pleasure of photographing the wedding of Sydni & Scott, which was the coming together of two people completely in love, as well as the coming together of a community of artists, performers & friends. It was magical, to say the least, and involved the love & support of friends & family members to make it what it was… helping hands that took care of flowers, music, lighting, organization, a seamstress mentor (for Sydni’s handmade three-piece dress of 450 yards of tulle… oh that dress!!!) and a reception performance (produced by Sydni) that could have easily been rated as the best burlesque entertainment show in 2011.

They asked their guests to dress “elegantly outrageous” and they delivered… I was overcome with the sense of love & magnetism & resounding energy & creativity that was their wedding… it was almost sensory overload! The burlesque performances were like no other, and I was seriously trying my best not to geek out over my favorite drag queen Waxie Moon, and found myself screaming along with the guests at his amaaazing bridal performance… ugh. my favorite. EVER.

This is what Sydni told me… “We did everything in our power to create a space that all of our guests could see how we share our life together in love, and to share with them that magic. Our wedding was a love letter to each other, and to our community that we had join us.” I love that. I feel like amid all the performances & glitter & falsies everywhere… the most important aspect of the day was the celebration of two people in love, and their village.


I am pleased & so very thankful to have this wedding–that is so special to me–featured on JuneBug Weddings.
