Ahhhh, Emily and Vincent. Lovers of dinosaurs and snark.
I’ve known Emily for a long time – 13 years? 14 years? Something like that. We went to the same junior high & high school. Did you know that over 30% of Emily Porter Photography brides/grooms are former classmates of Emily’s (George Washington High School/Ohio University) or Bobby’s (Capitol High School/WVU Tech)?
I actually just made that statistic up, but it’s a pretty safe guess.
Anyway – back to Emily and Vincent, lovers of dinosaurs and snark.
Vincent rode into Emily’s life from the frosted mountains of Canada. He was draped in the uniform of the Canadian Royal Mounted Police and waved a flag bearing the symbol synonymous with delicious maple syrup. His voice bellowed the proud national anthem of his country. Emily fell head over heels for this stranger from the Great White North. The rest is history.
Their wedding took place the day after a crazy derecho storm came through and left many locals without electricity for weeks. As luck would have it, their church (First Presby in Charleston) and reception venue (Edgewood Country Club) didn’t lose power.
There was a lot to love about this wedding- Emily’s fun fingernail paint, Vincent’s Air Force Ones and gifted dick towel.. (officially the best wedding day gift I’ve ever seen), the flowery orb things decorating the altar, the small-to-ginormous balloon switcheroo during the ceremony, the antique family wedding dresses on display at the reception, DINOSAURS, the Fleetwood Mac drinking game….. I could go on. Belle from B.Belle Events really outdid herself with the planning and event design on this one. Also my dad is in at least two of these photos since he played the trumpet at their ceremony and cocktail hour. So basically, this post is full of awesomeness.
So here you go…. Emily & Vincent’s wedding.
