After realizing how one-sided planning can be, groom-to-be Tommy Gaynor used his save-the-date as an opportunity to get more involved in the wedding planning with fiancée Shaina. He came up with the idea to pay homage to one of the couple's favorite obsessions.
"I was shocked when Shaina actually bought into the concept and began looking for football jerseys to order. I had to promise to pose for a few beach and boardwalk shots along the way, but it was worth it," said Gaynor.
When the couple presented the plan to their photographers, Debbie and Denise at art+life photography, they turned their idea into a romantic Friday Night Lights remake. They created exciting, impactful shots that were a big hit with friends and family.
"With a March wedding planned at a golf resort, I can't help but think I made out pretty well with the wedding planning. Of course I did, I found my teammate for life," said Gaynor.
