Your Not So Average American Wedding (And Jessa's First "Session")

(For all who don't know, Jessa is the name of my NikonD3000 and this was the first wedding where I shot with a professional camera.)

Some people may not get this. Actually, I don't think anybody will unless you know about Radical. Our pastor has been preaching on this subject for awhile now and he wrote a book on it. So, this sweet couple decided to have a Radical Wedding. Yes, you read that correctly, a Radical Wedding. An average wedding cost over $28,000 and they pulled it off with $1306. Yes, you read that correctly, $1,306.00. There were some differences than what an average wedding looked like. First, it was an outdoor ceremony and reception at the groom's mom's house. Second, the ceremony only lasted 10-11 minutes. Yes, you read that correctly, 10-11 minutes. (There were only two bridesmaids and the aisle was pretty short. :) ) Third, their parents cooked all the food for the reception. And last but, not least, they served zero alcohol.

I really enjoyed this wedding and hope that there will be more like this in the future! :)

Please enjoy the pictures and please bear with me as I am not that great of a photographer.....yet :) 

Stay tuned for Part 2 - The Reception! :)
