More Wilkes/Neely engagements

I feel compelled to point out that James Staddon didn't actually take any of the good couples photos (like the beautiful one of Victoria and what's-his-name). By his own admission, they were taken by another photographer identfied as "Mary".

James' photos are, as usual, shockingly bad. He also has a very tenuous grasp on the English language. Not sure if I'd noticed before how terrible his writing is. But apart from all the grammar mistakes (he does not seem to understand that plurals do not require apostrophes), here's a pro tip: If you're going to be doing wedding photography (and blogging about it), you might want to learn that the word you're looking for is "aisle," not "isle."

And that's enough BEC for today. Maybe. 😇

The Staddons really need to stick to landscape, drone, and real estate photography. Fundie robots typically aren’t great at taking pictures of humans.

Well, they're better than Chris Maxwell's efforts but that's about all there is to say about that.

The less bad Fundie Wedding Photographers seem to be women.  They might be a bit formulaic and Pintrest-y with their composition but they seem to be a bit better with emotion.

I just noticed: Jessica and Susanna pretty much had the same dress: the bodice is the same material, same sleeves, same ruching across the midsection, just different skirts.  Did they make their own dresses?

That wouldn't surprise me. Many fundie brides make their own dress rather than buy one. However, the skirt part of Susanna's dress looks like it wasn't handmade by just one person. I have to wonder if the Neely's have a very good friend or family member who makes or at least designs wedding dresses either by themselves or with a company to help them get a discount.

So, upon closer inspection Victoria's dress is the same dress my mom wore on her wedding day back in 1986. The sleeves, the skirt (not shown here), and the bodice are all the same design of my mothers wedding dress. I wonder if Victoria went to a used bridal store or if this was the same dress her mother or mother-in-law wore.

I could tell Victoria was wearing her mother’s dress. I love the idea of wearing your mother’s dress,  but I would likely want to make a few alterations. I’m just not a fan of the pick ups on the skirt and poofy sleeves.

Victoria's messy updo, hoop earrings, sepia flowers and vintage dress are giving me retro-hipster vibes. It was not her intention but I dig the look.

Her groom, on the other hand, needs a beard and a brown tweed suit.

I like Victoria’s style the best too. I just don’t dig those puffy sleeves. Sorry I can’t get over it. Smash those sleeves down and I would love the look.

I find it rather upsetting that James posted the photos of other photographers on his blog. Even though he stated that he didn't take them, there are going to be others who think that he really did take them. James isn't a bad photographer, he has improved since he shot Robert and Kendalyn's wedding. For what it is worth I hope that he takes some wedding photography classes in the future rather than hosting seminars and writing more how to books.

At first I didn't like Victoria's style when I saw the video. Honestly, her style is the one that I was most critical of. But, after seeing these photos I really love her style.

Susanna and Adam Wilkes are expecting their first bundle of joy on 2/2/21

I’m wondering how close the other sisters will be to that due date. The Bowers sisters got married to brothers in a double wedding and ended up having their first babies less than a day apart. I doubt the Neely sisters could do that. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they were all due within a few months of each other.

Over on the thread about the Staddons someone came across a photo from Abbie Camuso's blog called New Every Morning. In her FEW post there was a photo of the Neely's. It was very obvious that Susanna was pregnant. It did not look like Victoria was there in the photo that was posted of them. As for Jessica, from the camera angle and the way she was standing I couldn't really tell. It is possible that the Neely sisters could all be pregnant at once. But, I do think that they would all be due within weeks of each other. Usually, the way fundies reproduce, as long as everything goes well, the first child usually comes around their first wedding anniversary. Susanna and Daniel are due a month before their anniversary. Although, I am not sure how the sisters from the triple wedding are going to celebrate their wedding anniversaries as they were married on February 29 and that date only comes once every four years.

On another note, I have a feeling that there is going to be at least one more Neely/Wilkes union. Lauren and Bethany Neely are both close in age with the youngest Wilkes boy Mark. Lauren was born between 2000 and 2002 and Bethany was born between 2004 and 2006. Mark was born in 2001. So, I have a sinking feeling that one of them is going to end up with Mark. Also, there is another unmarried Wilkes son Kenan, but he was born in1995 and may be considered too old to marry Lauren. The youngest Neely girl Hannah was born between 2006 and 2008 and may be too considered too young for Mark. Then again, Pa Neely practically forced Daniel and Kathryn together and the marriage pool has gotten smaller for them.

      A few weeks ago, I was telling @HerNameIsBuffy about the generously sized single carrot I received from Imperfect Foods. Well, today I got two more monsters in my box. I ordered a pound of carrots and a pound of sweet potatoes, and this is what they gave me:

      At its widest point, the sweet potato is nine inches in diameter, while the carrot tops out at seven and three-quarter inches. I kinda feel bad about my plans to eat them, as these two are definitely large enough to pursue careers in the adult film industry.

      Fuck. Both of my interns are in quarantine. One is positive, the other is a close contact (her exposure was from her roommate, not the other intern). I know six other people who are or were sick within the last month and at least four other people who've had to quarantine after close contact. Things were supposed to be getting better. 😷

      I think most of us on FJ dislike the way many of the fundies talk about "training" their children. I've often read FJers post, "You train a dog. You teach a child."
      I would also bet that most of us don't think about humans as being "well bred", like a good breeding line of purebred dogs. 
      I'm a bit nauseated right now from reading the phrase "well bred" applied to human beings so many times. What bullshit.
      And apparently, I think too much.

      I feel like we need a Rachel Hollis snark thread. She landed in a lot of trouble recently after a bad TIKTOK video. She isn't fundie, although she is the daughter of a Pentecostal minister.  I've been watching videos on Youtube about her, both from before the scandal and now. I didn't know much about her, but I'm catching up.

      I have a pile of old vintage handkerchiefs with lace crochet edges. Anyone have any ideas on how to display or use them? My grandmother made some of them. Time to get them out of the drawer.

      Attention Massholes!
      There will be a drive-through J&J vaccine clinic in Rutland (near Worcester) on April 19-22, and as of this writing--about 9:30pm on Sunday, April 11--there are tons of slots open on all but the first day. Anyone who lives (or works?) in Massachusetts and is over 18 can sign up now.
      https://www.rrecc.us/vaccine
       
      [And for everyone else: yes, people from Massachusetts are called Massholes. People from elsewhere started calling us that as an insult, but we ran with it. Vaccine demand is wicked high here, so it's hard to get appointments. Hence the public service announcement.]
       
      Side note: I know that J&J allocations are dropping this week, but I presume, or at least hope, that they've planned for that and either already have the vaccines on hand or will get them.
