To say the day that Marios & Julia got married was action packed would be an understatement. Their ceremony was on the same EXACT street that they were filming Batman. You could literally look an see film crew, actors, etc. It was awesome. Awesome and…. CHAOTIC! When I finally arrived onsite I began shooting the guys. They were all pumped up and ready to go. I don’t think I stopped laughing for one minute. They were lots of fun.
The ceremony was absolutely mesmerizing. The exchanging of the rings was beautiful.
After photographing some at the church we wanted to get some shots at the carousel in Oakland. Fortunately, Marios is smooth talking and actually got permission for the trolley (and myself) to drive through the set. It was so cool! I don’t think they were filming at the time, but if in the movie you see a Molly’s Trolley that was us!!!!
I’ve heard good toasts and I’ve heard bad toasts. Most of the good toasts are heartfelt and actually cause you to cry a little. I’ve never heard a toast like Julia’s sister, Catherine gave. It was one of the most amazing things that I have ever witnessed. She rapped the toast to the “Fresh Prince of Bellaire” intro. I really hope that someone got that on tape!!!
I loved spending the day with everyone and want to thank Marios and Julia for selecting Amber Marie Photography =)
