Erma & Jermaine – Manassas Wedding Photographer

Erma & Jermaine – 8.7.10
Faith Temple Ministries
Manassas, Virginia

Erma & Jermaine had a beautiful, emotional wedding, attended by members of their enormous families.  I can’t remember exactly how many aunts & uncles and sisters and brothers Erma mentioned, but each set was in the double digits!

Look at how pretty Erma is.  That smile never left her face the entire day.

I brought my lovely husband along as a second shooter.  He got these goofy shots of the groom and his brother.

And I have to say, there were some very attractive gentlemen at this wedding.

And some of the cutest, least camera-shy kids I have ever seen.

I mean, look at this one.  Is your heart broken?  My heart is broken.

Erma’s mother runs a catering business and not only baked her daughter’s wedding cake but also provided all the food for the 150+ attendants!  Not a fan of hair spray, though…

Erma looked beautiful in her big white dress.

The ceremony was moving and the tears flowed freely.  I was very impressed by everyone’s unguardedness.  It was beautiful to see them get so emotional in front of so many people.

I love this image.  Look at the pure joy on Jermaine’s face.  This is a man who is excited about getting married!

Then it was time to head next door to a lovely little park for some couples’ portraits.  Erma and Jermaine were really great sports and let George and me drag them all over the place.  They even sat down on this questionably clean bench.

We wrapped the couples’ shots quickly and got them back to their reception.  The speeches were funny, the food was very good.

Thank you, Erma & Jermaine, for letting me be a tiny part of your special day.  It was truly an honor to be there while you pledged your lives to each other.

You’re not kidding about it, those are some of the cutest kids EVER! The bride is lovely, gotta adore a bride with a great smile and a deep dimple 🙂 My fave is the shot of Erma’s mom fighting back the hairspray – a classic.

Can’t help but mimicking the bride as I smile my way through these. 🙂
