A Halloween themed Wedding not a detail missed….. Cleopatra Photography {i do} Fort Myers Sydney & Berne Davis Center – Wedding Photography

omG!!!! so where to begin.. this day was soo much fun, different and full of little surprises…

Let me start by saying I had my first ever, early and on time Bride, and,  late…. Groomzilla (self proclaimed.. 😉 )

On his way the groom was pulled over ! Luckily he was let go, and made it on time for some awesome shots!

There were bystanders looking on at the blocked road, wondering what all the commotion was about…..

I had a great time, I love THEMED weddings and of course this one took the cake for creative….

from the cupcakes with dry ice to the horror flick seat table names… they did a great job at making this their day…. They didn’t just look in some wedding magazine and say “I want that….”

T, FYI is my hairdresser and one of my  long time friends, long time friend.. if that makes any sense….

I’m so glad to have met this couple and been asked to photograph such a cool wedding! what a breath of fresh air!!!

CONGRATS R and T!!! xox-A

A and K tied the knot… and I was a guest!!!!! Cleopatra Photography – Rhode Island Wedding photography

Hi Everyone!!!! Ok sooo, this is a special event to me because I’ve known the groom for 10 years…

He was the first person my husband introduced me to from his world, (and fittingly my husband was the best man standing proudly next to A)

I tell people the story all the time about the first time I met A, and how he danced around with a plastic ice cream cone top on his head for 15 minutes….

(from a kids piggy bank…. you know the big kind, with the sugar cone bottom, swirled “ice cream” top, complete with the slit for the coins…)

Anyhow I thought two things…omgosh he is hilarious, and what would a chick see in this guy?? hahaha but over time I soon realized why he was Chris’ friend…  he was funny, loyal, smart as all hell, and an all around great guy.

When we met K for the first time… I remember riding home from Naples and saying to Chris… I like her A LOT!!! I wonder if they’ll get married….?

Well they waited and waited… j/k… then A stood at our wedding in April of 2007, and then boom… 2 years and 2 kids of our own later… we found out A had popped the ?

So How excited was I??? when I got to be a guest!!!!

We almost didn’t make this trip… (thank you K for making it happen… )

The wedding was gorgeous, decorated beautifully and the food was amazing!!!  I met some amazing people, danced with my love for the first time in a long time.. and reunited with two amazing people and friends.. A and K.. thank you so much for allowing me behind the scenes….

Enjoy your..  NOT working the wedding.. candido’s as I call them… oh and a few detail/miscellaneous shots too…

We’ll start with the groom!!! Since that’s where I was the majority of the “getting ready” time

yes ladies… she got him a rolex… classic time-piece

there was a moment when I saw the bride and groom rushing away to this room before their entrance, hehehe sneaky little me… caught them in the middle of “practice”  😉

13 year old “V” sang her heart out… shocking everyone at the party! so adoreable and a special treat…

and last… a fun one of the bride at the end of the night!!!
