Bride in the pool!


October 1st, 2010

(If you haven’t read our previous blog post detailing Kerah and Moi’s wedding day up to the big splash, start here.)

We couldn’t believe our good fortune when Kerah, near the end of her drizzly outdoor wedding, pulled us aside to tell us that she and her bridesmaids were about to jump into the swimming pool at Orting Manor. We’ve waited for eight years of weddings for one of our brides to do something this extreme, and the time had finally come. Photographically, it ended up being more than we could have hoped for!

UPDATE: We’re proud to announce that the first photo below is an award-winner in a wedding photography contest by the Wedding Photojournalist Association!

The fun (for them and for us) didn’t end with the initial splashdown. Oh no, the pool party was just getting started! Laden down by her waterlogged wedding dress, Kerah scaled the pool slide’s ladder, and with a push from her dad, slid down to another dunking.

Next to the swimming pool is a small, round hot tub. Despite the fact that the hot tub was quite the opposite of hot, Kerah climbed in for a few creative portraits. This one is our favorite:

Not to be left out, Moi consented to join the ladies, and took a memorable leap into the pool alongside his new bride, as the bridesmaids cheered them on.

What a wet and happy group! Thanks everyone for giving us the extreme wedding event we’ve been waiting a long time to photograph! Okay, 2011 Wallflower brides, who’s going to top this?
