Central Oregon Wedding Of Denise & Jimmer At Aspen Hall In Bend, Oregon

August 12th, 2009

What an amazing day this was!  Family and friends all turned out to wish Denise and Jimmer a happy life together as they took the big leap.  An extra special guest that created quite a stir was an osprey that decided to go fishing in the pond right before the ceremony.  Everyone agreed it was a good sign as the huge bird of prey flew off with dinner, (or a snack, since the osprey caught another fish during the reception and I had some time to capture images of the action.  By the way, one of the photos I added today is of the osprey flying off with the prize above the water and what you’re seeing is the reflection of the trees, etc below).  The couple decided to see each other prior to the ceremony so Wendy and I staged a meeting across the street in Shevlin Park.  This turned out to be lots of fun as it was a nice way for Denise and Jimmer to unwind and have a moment to themselves prior to the ceremony.

Denise warned me that I should be ready for the dancing mayhem to commence after dinner was finished.  Well, she wasn’t kidding!  You could tell everyone wanted to get on the dancefloor ASAP and skip all the other formal “stuff” and when they did get it going I’ve never had such a fun time taking photos.  All the love and happiness to you both for lifetimes to come.
