Amy & Wayne: The Wedding!

Hello all!

This post is a little long. It will have lots of words and lots of images and 3 slide shows at the end. Please be patient it might take longer to load than usual.

So first I will show you what is possibly my FAVORITE image from whole day.

I have known Amy..my whole entire life..practically. We met back in grammar school and went to the same high school. When she contacted me via facebook to meet regarding her wedding photography I was so excited for her. And I was excited to see her whole entire family starting with her mom to her sister Necy (my long lost friend) to a teacher’s aide I had way back when to an old classmates mom. You see with Amy’s family once you meet any member of the McEntee clan you pretty much become family and are forever a member. This is something Wayne didn’t read in Amy’s profile.

Wayne and Amy met online. And from the best man’s toast – Wayne has a long history of doing lots of things online from finding online game buddies, to roommates, to a place to live…and now with Amy he has found a his soulmate . If you remember from their surf engagement session they radiate happiness. You can’t help but to be happy around them. On their wedding day there was nothing but happiness!

Fashion before comfort!

The day was gorgeous! They were married in San Juan Bautista’s breathe taking Mission.

The beautiful ladies

And the handsome guys

We took a stroll through town and ran into a Harley Davidson Bike festival!! Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE Harleys?? The couple looked pretty hot modeling on some bikes a few guys were kind enough to let us use. Thanks guys!!

The reception was an awesome b-b-q at Casa Maria’s a few blocks away. The reception was a blast. Did I mention the piñata?

Or the gorgeous and very Yummy cake:

At dusk things really started to shake rattle and roll with the first dance immediately followed by lots & lots of dancing and even some kareoking.

The following collage CRACKS me up! Necy who is a total clown and can be very embarrassing decided it was time to shake her groove thing, and embarrass her son since he was just “standing around”.

Embarrasing her son

please note if noone ever hears from me again – it’s because Necy killed me for posting this! 😉

Congratulations Wayne & Amy!!! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

and now….

I ask for a moment of silence…..

Amy’s sister Mona lost her battle to cancer just a few short days ago.

My heart goes out to the whole family.

Here is a picture of the newly weds with Amy’s mom and all her siblings.

In honor of her sister Mona, Amy is “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” in an American Cancer Society walk against cancer. She had goaled herself to raise $350.00. Let’s help Amy meet and EXCEED that goal! IF you can please
donate by clicking here to reach Amy’s pledge page.

As an incentive I will be raffling off a family session once she hits her goal. If you donate please leave me a note in the comments section in this blog or on my facebook page (where I am also running this raffle). I will announce the winner Nov 1 after her walk.

Last but not least the slideshows!
