Tom and Dorothy - Glenview Mansion Wedding / by Denise McMahon

HELLO to a different type of blog post than my usual of families and travels, WEDDINGS!

Since September last year, I have been assisting and third shooting with Traci, my life twin, under her company, Lock and Co. This was the first wedding I got to help her with, primarily as an assistant and doing a bit of third shooting. I could never thank Traci enough for inviting me along as an assistant/third shooter. It has been a truly great, not-scary way, to get my feet wet in the wedding world and to see if second shooting is something I want to do more of. And now, with four more weddings with Traci under my belt already, I think it definitely is something worth pursuing :D I will be shooting a few more weddings later this fall under Traci, and I am so excited for them!! 

This was such an awesome wedding to be present at. Tom and Dorothy had a traditional wedding ceremony followed by a Thai water blessing ceremony. The water they used for the water blessing was blessed by Buddhist monks - they traveled to a temple to receive the blessings for the water! I thought that was incredibly cool. And it was so unique to see how they tied two different cultures together so perfectly into one beautiful wedding day. I hope you enjoy this little blog post!
