Silly Monkey Story - Weddings are for Running

Running kids

Do you see a nicely assembled wedding party waiting for the ceremony to begin? And then the two crazy kids running around like mad?  Yup, those would be mine.  They were enjoying themselves so much it was hard to say no.  It was a beautiful day for a garden wedding at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY.  After a LONG drive, with the last 7 miles through Brooklyn taking 45 minutes, it was good to finally stretch our legs.

Here's Dova wagging her tongue in the wind. Wait, that would be a silly dog, not a silly monkey.

Just before the kiss

Truth be told, I had a hard time standing still during the ceremony as well (we ran out of seats during our romp in the grass) , so I walked around with my camera pretending to be the photographer (see the full set here). I was happy to capture this kiss with my 70-300mm lens. Dova followed me as a circled the ceremony, but Adam was completely bored standing with Dad.

Later, Adam took to climbing trees amongst the turquoise bridesmaids and flower girls.

Adam came home with massive grass stains on his pants, but magically Dova had no stains on her white skirt. The shoes, however, were another story.
