Morgin and Patrick’s Wedding – Part Deux

We’re back! 🙂

When we last left Morgin and Patrick’s wedding, they were getting ready for the big moment and now it’s arrived! You can view the first part of their wedding day here. Morgin and her girls make the sprint to the finish line:

The time is here:

I love here how people are just kind of looking around, but Patrick has “laser” vision for his bride:

We have lift off! 🙂

May I present Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Gonzales:

From there it was on over to the Neches Room in Beaumont – a great venue for a wedding reception and where we photographed Morgin’s bridal portraits. Catered by Holly and Christi with the Beaumont Catering Company, the food was very tasty 🙂

Speaking of tasty… mmmm… cake 🙂

Beautiful wedding cake

Is that not the most beautiful wedding cake you’ve ever seen? It tasted even better 😉

Then it was Patrick’s brother Matthew and Morgin’s sister Meegan’s turn for toasts and speeches:

Then we come to what is probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen at a reception. Patrick was all up for the garter retrieval and toss, but right as he was about to go in for the kill, Meegan stops him and said he had to use a blindfold so the chase wasn’t too easy. The crowd is chanting “teeth!” “teeth!” “teeth!”. While he was being blindfolded, one of the groomsmen had donned some pantyhose and shorts and flopped down on Matthew’s lap and laid Morgin’s skirts over his leg so everything would seem kosher. And… well, you get the idea! 😀

Wow! Both his old and new family can be so cruel.. who’d a thunk it? 😀 Needless to say, he kept both eyes open and uncovered for the second chance. 😉 A couple photos below of the garter and bouquet tosses. You can’t really tell, but there were a few girls who really wanted that bouquet (unless, you notice the dilated puplis, Dana hiking her skirts up, elbows being thrown, everyone ready to pounce! :D)

No-one was injured badly, but it was intense for a few moments. 🙂 Then it was everyone to the dance floor!

Then it was time to leave for the honeymoon in a flurry of bubbles:

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a beautiful day! 🙂
