Gherid and Rikki met through their work and then fell in love while playing board games. A match made in nerd paradise.
I grew up with Gherid. He was part of the neighborhood crew that would run through yards at dark playing capture the flag, and all pass around the controller in Mortal Kombat 3 and play 250 rounds in a row, so that we could play Pong.
Gherid messaged me telling me that he and Rikki were getting married in a small wedding at their church but would love to have me capture their formal family pictures and a few images of them as a couple. How could I say no to an old friend.
Two of his best men were more of the childhood friends, so there was lots of goofing around going on when I was working with them.
After the formals, we snuck outside to get the gorgeous sunlight (and them some quiet time)
Their reception room at games at each table, and of course their own personal Magic decks at the head table. So why not play around a little bit before everyone gets there and the time just flies by.
So happy that these two found each other and I wish them all the best!
