Melissa and David are great friends of ours. They had been planning on getting married next year, but shifted their plans to a very relaxed spur-of-the-moment nuptial…. this is a screen capture of their actual decision-making process:
(Notice the time-stamp on those messages).
Anyway, I had taken the weekend off for my 30th birthday… but Melissa asked if I would come out for a few hours and take pictures of her wedding, and we wouldn’t have been anywhere else. You may recognize the tall lady in the background, helping Melissa get ready. You know what I love about this wedding? Everyone is having fun. Nobody is hung up on appearances, and everyone is thrilled to be there. Even when the zombies showed up, everyone kept having a good time.
Oh, the zombies?
Melissa & David had checked downtown Nashville’s schedule for Titans games, Predator games, and other various events…. but they neglected to realize that 10/10/10 was also the scheduled date for the Nashville Zombie walk, and Riverfront Park was ground zero. So we had a ceremony surrounded by zombies, although they were mostly fairly considerate flesh-eating ghouls.
Tech note: This set was shot entirely on film.

The carriage driver’s dog was awesome
‘Lissa doesn’t seem impressed with the ice cream
Let me tell you, this zombie was motivated. Low-crawling on pavement is rough.
