Sarah and Josh’s wedding took place on possibly the rainiest day in 2012 at Dewberry Farm in Kernersville. When we arrived at the site to shoot anticipation and pre-wedding portraits, it was raining off and on and arrangements were being made to get everything under shelter. We all agreed to play it by ear and wait out the rain before trying to shoot. By the time Sarah was ready to walk to the ceremony site, the rain was coming down so hard it was difficult for guests to hold on to their umbrellas. Water was everywhere, but Sarah, Josh, and the wedding party took it all in stride. They never stopped smiling and laughing all the way down the aisle.
Even though the ceremony site had to be relocated, family and guests didn’t let the rain keep them from celebrating their love for this couple. One of the bride’s maids had even written a song and sang it for the couple’s first dance.
Since Sarah is a member of the Greensboro Roller Derby league where she is known as “Pinky La Pain” on The Battleground Betties, many of her league and teammates were there to party with her and Josh until late into the night.
Frayed Edge did Sarah’s Roller Derby styled bridal portraits a week prior to her wedding. The images spent a bit of time being shared all over the “internets”, once Buzzfeed got a hold of them!! That was pretty awesome! You can check the complete session here on our blog.
For now, these are a few of my personal favorites from their wedding:
Saturday, April 30th, Greensboro Roller Derby sponsored its first Greensboro Roller Derby Flat Track Alleycat Race. It was a huge success! If you aren’t familiar with what an Alleycat is check out this link. Alleycat races consist of several task checkpoints where participants must complete a specific task before moving onto another checkpoint. Frayed Edge was thrilled to be a part of creating a task for one of the checkpoints located at Seven Sagas Tattoo in Greensboro. The task was called, “Match the Tattoo to the Derby Girl“. Seven Sagas featured several girls from the Greensboro Roller Derby League who have had their artwork completed in their shop.
Feel free to take a moment to play the game for yourself. Can you match the correct tat(s) to the Derby girl?
