Weddings: Chris & Kim in Nassau


It was Chris and Kim's wedding that Tammi and I were heading to during the snowstorm last month. Chris and I have known each other for just about 15 years. It was a pleasure to see him so happy that day.

Due to some technical difficulties, I was shooting all film, which limited me somewhat, but I think left an interesting, vintage look.

The ceremony was at a local resort in Nassau at the end of a long pier. The scene was gorgeous. I hope my photos managed to capture even a fraction of that.

One Year Married!

_MG_1988 - Version 2

Tammi and I got married a year ago today. It's a little jarring to think about it. Sometimes it seems like it was just the other day, sometimes it seems like we've been together forever. Today, we celebrate in Kauai.

Happy Anniversary, baby!

We're Married!

It's been over a week and I still don't know what to say. Last Saturday, Tammi and I gathered our closest friends and family to declare our commitment to each other and have the best party we've ever hosted.

Seriously, it was awesome.

More on that as time goes on. Right now, I'm sitting in our apartment in Paris unable to sleep at 2am and finally getting around to doing what I should have a while ago.

Stay tuned for Wedding, Honeymoon and Paris Travel posts.

Wedding: Licensed!


Last Friday Morning, Tammi and I braved the bureaucracy of the City of New York, pale flourescent lights and surly city workers to obtain our Marriage License. We're nearly there, which feels great and terrifying at the same time. Terrifying only because there's quite a bit left to do and mere weeks to get it completed.

The Honeymoon Decision

Paris, originally uploaded by ultraclay!.

After a year of hoping and wishing and just about giving up, Tammi and I have decided to go to Paris for the Honeymoon.

You'd think that the travel portion of the wedding would be something I'd be all over. It's certainly the area I'm the most comfortable with and knowledgeable about, much more so than paper and printing styles or what kind of suit I should wear.

Yet, I've been putting this off for a while. Mostly because, given the economy and the weak dollar, Paris has been out of reach for us.

Instead, we were going to go to Brazil. The tickets were on hold, awaiting the final click. Then my Aunt - my wonderful, fantastic Aunt - called me to let me know that she would be entering a large donation to the honeymoon fund. We were elated.

Nothing against Brazil, but before I had even figured out how to propose, the idea of a honeymoon in Paris was nearly fully formed. It would be a change from our standard expeditions, something familiar and relaxed. I wanted to defy my habit of spending my vacations on my feet trying to see every single thing possible before leaving. Instead of exploring all the time, we'd live there if only for a couple weeks. We'd go to the markets, I'd cook, we'd wander the streets leisurely instead of intently seeking out the next place on the list.

There is a visible difference in our attitudes toward just about everything wedding-related since deciding on Paris. This morning I gathered up my Hemingway and Orwell along with various other books about or set in Paris and started looking at vacation rental sites.

We're so excited!

The Wedding: Line Dancing

IMG_3682, originally uploaded by ultraclay!.

One of the few hard rules Tammi and I set for the wedding was that there was to be no "Electric Slide" or any other such line dancing. This has already caused some static as, to some members of my family, this seems to be as important as the actual vows. I've been less concerned with this since I am required to be on the dance floor for exactly one song and I will not be there again after that. Generally though, banning such banality is something I can get behind. Besides, we couldn't imagine any of our friends actually being into such a thing.

Yet, at my cousin's wedding last weekend, each of the -several- line dances seemed to be the only songs that brought the Jamaicans and the Americans out on the floor together. We'll have to see how that all works out.

Today's photo is wedding themed, as Tammi and I are down here in Atlanta for my cousin Demetria's wedding this afternoon. It's our first wedding since getting engaged, which I'm sure will change our perspective considerably.
