"Married married married! Ok, night-night."






This afternoon my friends Cameron and Kate got married! It was of course, a beautiful wedding and the bride and groom couldn't stop grinning. This was one of the two pictures I snapped before they got showered with hugs and good wishes. It was nice to see some friends from high school, and a wonderful day for a wedding, not raining! The ceremony was held in an old church, and the reception in the historic part of town at an old re-furbished red cross building. Very cute all around. Congratulations Cameron and Kate!

I brought my thirteen year old cousin Ruth with me, we always have fun together, silly as can be. She's also my own personal photographer! So when things got a little crowded at the reception we explored the area a bit and took some pictures. We share an interest in old buildings and just history in general (she knows more about the civil war than I ever will) and get geeky when we can explore one. One building we've always wanted to take a closer look at is an old military hospital, locked up, run down, closed to the public, and oh so haunted. So even though there were thick chains on the doors, we peeked in the windows and took some random photos :) The third one is so Nancy Drew don't you think? I think the last one is pretty cool, she was quite dedicated to getting just the right shot, laying on the ground snapping pictures for the two minutes the sun was hitting the building just right :)
Thanks Ruth!

What a great photographer she is!! I also love the pin up shot on the stairs!! I used to work in an old assylum. Of course, they can't call it an assylum anymore because that's not p.c. but insane and/or ill people lived there and it was seriously haunted. The building was over 150 years old and I worked in the part that they used to lock people up in back in the day...creepy!! But, there was never a dull moment!!:)

I know I've said it before, but it bears repeating...you are too stinkin' cute! Love all the photos and I'm jealous that you got to go exploring in old surroundings.

oh rita and her tiny teddy.

Coedith said...

I showed the pin up photo to Uncle Mav and told him "this is what happens when you expose them to this imagery since tiny children" Solanah's a pin up and Ruth the photographer. Very fun.

Peldyn said...

Your friends look adorable! I am totally coveting your suit. You hit just the right note with the red gloves. Tres chic!

Miss Woody said...

Casey said...

Oh my golly, Solanah! I cannot believe how utterly perfect that suit is... The pockets with the bow detail are killing me!
