Wow!  The Bartlett-Shoemaker wedding was a blast!  Kara and I went full throttle all day, the weather was great, and the families were just awesome!  We were exhausted, but it was really fun…

I am just now downloading the material so we can begin editing.  There were no big surprises, so our planning seemed to work well.  We started with the girls prep at the hotel in the morning, and then we headed out to catch the guys having breakfast at Waffle House!  We had some lunch and then split up, meeting later at the church.

The ceremony was a little challenging with camera positioning, but we coped.  The surprise (and there always is one!) came when Father Walsh announced in his authentic Irish accent, the couple as “Mr. and Mrs. Shoemaker,” while they are actually “Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett!”  Thankfully, my camera was mic’d with wireless receivers; otherwise it would have captured my “Whoop!”

The reception was really fun.  Both families were relaxed and let their hair down.  I can’t wait to see the footage.  I think I’ll take a nap first…

Mike
