The twittersphere has been a buzz with LeicaGuy wedding postings. I appreciate the commentary – though, a bunch of you had mistaken facts… but such is life on the internet. At least you spelled my name right.
Additionally – thanks to Gaelan for letting me use his photos and of course making such an awesome ring.
Lastly… Thank you to Emily Therese – aka The Leica Lady – for being my amazing bride… and the ring.
The Leica Guy (Matthew B. Harrison) and The Leica Lady (Emily Therese) were married in a small ceremony in central Massachusetts on July 31st, 2011. The wedding consisted of a brief ceremony performed by the couple’s close friend and was followed by a lovely Sunday brunch attended by close friends and family. The couple could not have asked for better weather or a better turnout. It truly was a beautiful celebration of their love.
The night before, at the rehearsal dinner, The Leica Guy was presented with his groom’s cake: a replica of a black paint Leica M9 mounted with a f/.95 Noctilux. This amazing cake was baked by Dianne Rockwell, The Cake Lady, for just this special occasion. It was such an amazing cake, that it was truly a shame to have to cut it up and serve it. Though, it was the best tasting Leica, either the bride or groom had ever had.
As is tradition, the bride and groom exchanged gifts prior to the wedding. While Matthew purchased Emily the watch that she had always wanted. Emily commissioned a custom ring for Matthew’s shooting hand (as opposed to for his wedding band). This one of a kind band has the depth of field scale from his favorite lens, the .95 Noctilux. On the sides, the ring features both Matthew’s name and The Leica Guy moniker on one side, and the Lens information including name, filter size, and serial number on the other. It truly is a unique piece of art and jewelry – perfect for the occasion.
After the wedding, the two left for their honeymoon to Praiano, Italy. Each equipped with a Leica M9-P and a variety of lenses – the honeymoon was captured exclusively with Leica brand equipment. While most of the photos are still being edited, a few samples are available in the gallery below. Emily’s M9-P was mostly equipped with an F/1 Noctilux, while Matthew’s was equipped with his .95 Noctilux.
