Danielle & Andrew -- Aug. 1st, 2009

Dani and Andy (aka. "Dandy") were married at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks on August 1st. And WOW was it a feast for the eyes. Every inch of this event was elegant -- from the gorgeous red roses everywhere and the blinged-out table cloths to Dani's the dreamy Pronovias wedding gown -- everywhere you looked this wedding was breathtakingly beautiful.

I was just a guest at this particular event, but this was an interesting experience for me because it was at this wedding that I realized I can NOT enjoy a wedding anymore unless I'm taking picture of it. I seriously will sit there the entire time thinking about 'what a great shot this would be' and 'oh I hope someone's capturing that' and 'what would that look like from this angle?' Seriously, it's pathetic. So during this wedding I surrendered to my obsession, got up from my seat (luckily I was on the end of a row) and started shooting, making sure not to get in the way of the hired photographers of course.

And here's some of what I got for your visual pleasure...

The ceremony site. Sparkles hanging down from the ceiling, lush white feathers adorning the chuppa and that awesome red ball of roses as an accent. It was heavenly.

The groom's daughter with his father (I think). And his sons looked amazing in their full on tuxes with tails, tophats and gloves.
