Most blogs keep you up to date with the current work that is happening, as it happens…but as I get the ball rollin, there is so much that I’ve shot in the past year that I’m excited to share, I might have to work backwards for a little bit. I’m going to start with my most recent wedding of 2012 and continue to post some of my favorite moments and stories from this wedding season.
Ellen & Matt.
As the months, weeks and days approached to Ellen & Matt’s wedding, I was like a kid the night before Christmas. Combine two amazing people, surround them by equally amazing family and friends, and you’d be excited too! I absolutely couldn’t wait. From the suspenders and bow ties to the Manolo’s and lace… every detail, every part of their day was pretty incredible. I often say I wish I could ride my bike to my weddings, (and I sometimes have) but with the gorgeous St. Agatha & James Cathedral only 4 blocks away from my house, and Penn’s campus across the street, I was on my own turf. I had my talented friend Russ by my side, and, well…it was just a really, really great time. There was a lot of high-fiving.
For me, it was one of those days I will always remember in my career. At some point during the day, one of the bridesmaids pulled me aside, and as we both talked excitedly about how great the day was, she said to me, “You were born to do this!” I feel that way at every wedding, but to hear it out loud from someone else was pretty awesome.
Stay tune for part II, and many more stories to come!
