An amazing wedding with a spooky theme party
Had a great time with Amanda & Matt all day for what tuned out to be an amazing weather day for their Fall beach wedding on Topsail Island. While the beach wedding had the fall color theme, the wedding reception took a spooky twist with a Halloween style wedding reception. It was great to see everyone having fun and so many people changing into costume for the wedding reception. Along with Halloween table decorations, the walls were covered with movie posters of some of most scary movies ever made.
Now to a funny story about this Star Wars composite wedding photo above. Amanda wanted to surprise her husband with something Star Wars theme photo. However, she did not want him to know about the pictures she wanted to surprise him with the photo for Valentines day. As always with weddings, not much time to work with the bride and groom so had to sneak it into the twilight set which was limited to this one area with minimal working space. At the time, I really had no idea what I was going to do in post other than trying to do something with light sabers. As we were shooting this series I told the groom to hold out his hand like he was holding his beer can. He looked back at me like “what.” I advised that he was blocking out part of the background. Got one shot and continued the twilight set.
