i was on my own for this one since jon was busy teaching pottery up in castine, maine that week. i knew that i must shoot this wedding after shaylah told me that her wedding planning inspiration was the movie "big fish" and that she was thinking of her wedding as one giant art project! i think that's how everyone should approach wedding planning, with the same enthusiasm and excitement as a new art project. shaylah is also a talented photographer, each time i fired my hasselblad she would squeal with delight and say "oh, I love that sound!" i asked my friend susan adam to join me on my little wedding adventure roadtrip from maine to massachusetts. it was so nice to have her there as my helper in jon's absence (since i must admit, i feel a little lost without him). it was a humid rainy day, but shaylah and jonathan never let that dampen their wedding spirits. if anything the raindrops brought all their loved ones closer together as they put puzzles together, played cards, ate pie and danced to lady gaga records in the cozy living room of their friend george's house. it was as sweet as it looks.

(oh, and that ice cream truck just happened to roll by the church during family photos!)
