reidsville wedding: mary taylor+drew 12.11.10

last saturday i had the pleasure of working alongside the super talented anna of anna paschal photography at a beautiful christmas wedding held in reidsville, north carolina. it's been several years since i've been commissioned as a second photographer at a wedding and it was truly an enjoyable experience! i not only found anna to be professional, she was great fun to work with and had so many creative ideas!  mary taylor and drew, the bride and groom were wonderful to work with as well.  

the late afternoon ceremony was held at woodmont united methodist church, which was decorated with an enormous christmas tree, poinsettias, and candles & magnolias in each of the stained glass windows. it made for a very festive occasion!  i arrived at the church a couple hours prior to the ceremony, joining mary taylor and her eleven bridesmaids, three junior bridesmaids, and flower girl for some pre-ceremony photos, while anna ventured downtown with drew and the groomsmen {can't wait to see her pics!}.  

the reception was held immediately following the ceremony at the pennrose park country club, a fabulous 1920's english tudor style structure. the venue was adorned with twinkling white lights, plenty of greenery, and a gorgeous christmas tree. i love weddings at christmastime!  the couple's friend, a pastry chef, made the gorgeous wedding cake and the wedding favors for the guests were chocolate-covered {iced with sprinkles!} krispy creme donuts, a north carolina original! 

anna added a fun touch at the reception, setting up a photobooth complete with props she handmade herself.  guests enjoyed grabbing a prop such as a silly moustache or santa hat for some seriously hilarious photo ops. if you visit anna's facebook business page you can see a sample taken in the booth at this very same wedding.  what a clever idea! i'm toying with the idea of offering a photobooth in the new year at the weddings i'm commissioned for.  stay tuned for details!

keep checking back anna's blog to see her beautiful photographs from mary taylor and drew's wedding. thanks so much anna, you were a joy to work with!
