This is not something we'd be into upon first glance. However, I figured it would give us some good insight into the whole wedding thing and some good contacts. I volunteered us. We chalked up the experience to trying something new -- an adventure!
We can't talk too much about the experience, but hair was done (lotsa hairspray and bobby pins for me - slicked back for Travis) and makeup applied (yep, fake eyelashes). Travis got a bow tie, wore his actual wedding suit and I wore a borrowed wedding dress. We both had borrowed rings and shoes. Photos were taken in all varieties at Dolores Park, 24th Street and City Hall.
The weather was seemingly perfect. Until we had to stand outside in it for hours. Anyone that knows San Francisco knows that sunny days are not necessarily warm days. Everyone was super accommodating and sweet, but boy was I glad to get into a warm steamy shower at the end of the day and stop shivering!
Travis and I don't necessarily like to be the center of attention so we were definitely outside of our comfort zone. There was a lot of awkward and stiff posing, but the photo shoot team was gracious and embraced our square selves.
All in all, Travis and I agree it was an interesting experience and we'll get some fun photos out of it. We won't be modeling again soon, though -- that's checked off our life lists! It was also fun to place wedding dress up a few months before the Big Day!
