Of Beer and Pirates: Jan+Jeanette {Wedding}

February 17, 2011

Wedding of Jan+Jeanette
It’s been a while since I posted a set of an entire wedding and I couldn’t be happier than to post Jan and Jeanette’s.

Jan and Jeanette are the sort of couple who are simply unpretentious, warm, kind and great to hang out with. When we first met, we talked a little about their wedding and then talked a lot about beer – Guinness, Asahi Dry, Kilkenny’s and Stella Artois (It was only through Jan did I learn about the notorious nickname for Stella Artois). Then, a couple weeks before their wedding, we met up to chat about their day’s schedule over – surprise, surprise – beer.

Jan and Jeanette’s wedding was an eventful day, where pirates arrived with rum but were instead made to walk planks. You could just sense the closeness of Jan and Jeanette’s friends – of whom some had flown in specially for their wedding – and how magnetized they were as a group.

And when the Captain finally got his bride, they celebrated the night away with food, drink and great company by the water way.

Wedding of Jan+Jeanette‘Sure. But you’d have to count these coins first!’ Jan had wanted to change 5 cent coins instead, but the bank had run out. True story.

Your heart tells you to stay. And when you do, you capture a moment that happens just once – an uncontrieved moment between father and daughter.
