The England Wedding ~ John & Lisa

“What on earth is a ‘Mad Dog Circle???” I wondered as I read an email from Lisa detailing some of the events her wedding reception would include. I would soon find out 🙂 The whole event took place at one of our favorite venues in Anderson, SC, The Bleckley Inn , & featured what became one of my favorite bands, Green Vegas . John & Lisa’s friends helped make this a memorable & photo-worthy good time for all – they were not afraid to show what a blast they were having! It was a beautiful ceremony, a pumping reception, & slightly crazy exit 🙂 Oh, & the MD 20/20 flowed like…well…MD 20/20.

Lisa’s girls were perfect….they gave Lisa their full attention, there were no divas 🙂 & they smiled a lot!

Ok, Lisa’s dad is really, really, really tall; when he saw my obvious wheel-turning as I tried to figure out a way to make it not so obvious, he kindly said, “You can’t fix it; it is what it is.” That freed me up to just take the photos, bless him!

Ok, this was like the sweetest thing ever – Lisa & John’s male friends got down on one knee surrounding Lisa, & serenaded her with “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'”, just like in Top Gun.

Oh, Lord, it’s MD 20/20 time. Ok, this is the Mad Dog Circle; they all got in a circle &…well, chugged some MD.

This was the crazy exit; there was so much smoke from the sparklers the guests couldn’t see Lisa & John coming, so they were like right in front of me (ergo, the camera ) until the last second when they parted & Whoa! There’s the bride & groom! Lol! I was able to get one quick shot before they rushed past me! So, no these 2 photos are not out of order, I took the last one after the couple was past me just to show the freaky conditions 🙂
