Very Velour

“This wedding portrait was taken at my father’s best friends wedding. My pop is the mustachioed man wearing the burgundy velvet suit in the top right corner. I am the one on the bottom holding the taco-like basket. Why is there wheat? I do not know.”

“We had the worst wedding photographer in the world. I think this says it all.”

That Magic Moment

“Where to start…the wind blowing my hair into my mouth the exact moment of our kiss? My husband’s amazing glowing mullet? Our preacher digging the moment? I just can’t decide!”

The Bride of Mulletstein

“This photo is from our wedding which took place on March 7th, 1987. For some strange reason our wedding photographer thought it would be really romantic if Shirlee acted as if she were crouching inside my mullet. What was he thinking?”

Tops Off Dance Off

“My Wedding: August of 2004. In what has become know as a “family” thing, men from his side shed clothes as the night goes on. This is me and my husband’s Uncle about half way through our reception at a local restaurant/bar.”

Captain Hooked

“This is my husband and I the night of our wedding. His “friends” thought it would be funny to put a fish hook on the steering wheel of the car, because I “HOOKED” him. In our celebratory state he got the hook stuck in his hand. We had to go to the ER to get it removed and he had to get a tetanus shot. The ER staff took this picture and gave us back the hook to keep.”
