Cody & Jenn's awesome concert wedding...

Thursday, September 4, 2008

One of the greatest things about my job is that I get to see how everybody chooses to live life, down to the most personal details. Theres no better indicator of the personality of a couple than their wedding day, it's like a microcosm of their take on life. Some of us enjoy a luxurious, grand wedding with hundreds of guests. Whereas, others of us enjoy a elegantly simple backyard ceremony with close family and friends. And then there are those of us who enjoy getting married in the middle of a rock concert. My friends Jenn & Cody took the idea of letting their personality shape their wedding day to a new level. Cody and Jenn both love art and music, good food and drink and having a great time with their friends and family...and thats exactly what their wedding day was! I remember in our consultation when Jenn tried to explain her vision to me, half way through I said " I'll be there, even if I'm not the photographer!"
It was the most fun I've had in a looong time.So here's how it worked... They invited all their guests to a concert, told them to wear their concert t-shirts and come ready to have a good time. Grandpa Griffith and Lisa Curl brought the thunder with their hilarious musical stylings. They tied the knot right in the middle of the concert. There was even a feature song written just for them performed by Lisa Curl and GG lead singer Aaron Copeland. In the true sense of celebration, the ceremony included a free for all dance time where guests were invited up to the stage to cut loose.

On a serious note, I'm not sure I'll ever be part of a more fun, genuine and personal celebration. It was legendary. I could probably blog three times the photos here, but you probably have a real job and I'd hate to get you in trouble with your boss. Now on to the photos, I'll provide a little commentary along the way...

Whitney said...

"offbeat" that's jenn! i certainly wouldn't say she is trend setter though, jenn is a trend destroyer :)
