Killers rain or shine…

Well, the Killers finally came to town in a long awaited event that basically blew our minds. Only problem is that it rained pretty hard throughout the evening. This seriously impeded our picture taking and/or video recording but the audience was pumped and they gave such a charged performance that it was almost a sin to take the time to shoot any footage of the show because you had to peel your eyes away from the performance for seconds at a time.

Brandon flowers might be my idol now…or at least my ideal model for mens shopping…what  is up with three piece suits???

It was the end of the summer and the show to see. Awesome. We even ran into our wedding band front-man. We asked him if he was mad at us…old habits die hard i guess…sorry shucking bubba…

here are some videos – sorry about the quality…it was raining you know.

and another…the encore i think…

Venue Selected.

Well, i said i would give everyone an update on the wedding…here is what we know so far.

We have pretty much decided on a venue (which is the hardest part) here in CBUS. We wanted a place where all the out of towners and such could have a place to stay and hang out with the wedding party, and where we could spend a few days getting pampered (not to mention drunk) before the ceremony. So we decided on the Great Southern Westin Hotel and Spa (and theatre). It really makes the most sense. We spit-balled ideas like Vegas and Florida for weeks, and logistically, when you get right down to it, this is the best most logical place to have it.

The ceremony will be in the Great Southern Theatre and the cocktail and reception hour will follow immediately after. We are thinking of a Sunday brunch as well…we need time to swap gossip and observations of the night prior…we basically want to stretch this event as long as we can. As far as the rehearsal dinner goes, that has yet to be decided. My pops is coming into town so i imagine we will rough it out then.

The wedding coordinator over at the Westin should be getting back to us soon and then i can give everyone a date. We are shooting for Spring, but who knows when for sure…

here is a link to the hotel for the curious.

we will have a separate wedding site up in a few days that you can RSVP and check our registry, etc…i will let everyone know as that materializes.

Shooting today…love Lightroom…

Went out today…not too far from my house actually – I just ventured around an abandoned warehouse. I fooled around with aperture and exposure to get some interesting results…I edited in Lightroom to bring out more of the color…it’s such a fast editing process i might prefer it to Photoshop (I suppose that’s because i’m more of a purist in terms of photography – i’m such a snot)…
