I don’t hide the fact that I married into a pretty rad family. My own extended family doubled in size and I ended up with a total of 10 (!) step-siblings/siblings-in-law, not including spouses. But over the last couple of years, many of those siblings have gotten hitched or engaged so the family just keeps growing. I’ve basically lost count at this point.
Dan’s second youngest sister, Dean-Marie, will joining the club when she marries her Prince Charming, Mathew, this summer. We took the opportunity to snap a few photos while we were last together in British Columbia in January.
I’ve been pokey about posting. Not for lack of love for these images, but because life has kept me swamped. But I promised myself I’d get these up before the much anticipated wedding of my beautiful siste-in-law, Dean-Marie and her handsome groom. And since the ceremony are coming up in a few weeks (!) my time is tight.
I’m not gonna lie. This was not the easiest shoot I’ve ever had. I was only half a day over a nasty stomach virus that had me horizontal for 36 hours. It was brutal.
And it was FREEZING. -150, I think.
But Dean and Matt were so good to head out on short notice and brave the cold with me for a little while. As much as it pained me, I could not miss out on the opportunity to spend time with the future bride and groom and to take advantage of the AMAZING backdrop provided by the Rockies and the rising sun.
Dean and Matt, thank you for the time we spent together. People can’t help but smile when they are around you two. I can’t wait to see you all dressed up in your fancy duds, in just a few weeks.
