jimme and austin

I’m a fairly good judge of recognizing charmed lives. Living one myself, I call it as I see it, and Jimme and Austin are right up there. Their wedding was already our third shoot together – a beach engagement, and steamy, victorian boudoir session meant we were very comfortable with each other. Plus – my frequent visits to Donckers in Marquette (which employs both of them) meant the Brockit crew and I have shared a lot of chocolate, sandwiches, coffee, and hugs with Jimme and Austin. And by hugs, I mean – wrap arms around you and squeeze the air out of your lungs until you see stars kind of hugs. Their wedding day started out very laid back and ended in a bang. Many bangs. Because: New Years Eve. Jimmy and Austin chose a Gatsby themed wedding and they pulled it off effortlessly, naturally, beautifully. From gold candles to gold glitter eyeliner (yes – I of course wore it also) the theme played perfectly against a backdrop of old train depot surrounded by white winter. After a first-look, we toured just a couple of their favorite spots in downtown Marquette before they exchanged vows at the end of an aisle of birch branches, surrounded by their closest friends and family who huddled together in the 20 degree snow. Sweets from Donckers, beer from Blackrocks, and live music from our friends with Frank an Da Beanz… the line between wedding photographer and wedding guest got a little more blurry than usual – and that’s a pretty fuzzy line to begin with. Personal highlights: watching Austin sweetly and delicately help his new bride change out of her wedding dress and into an evening gown, and wedding guest yell, “… it’s not a party until Austin takes his shirt off!” He already had.
