Katie and Tripp’s Wedding!
WOW! …another amazingly beautiful couple AND wedding! How lucky can one person get?!!!
I probably should title this post “Everyone’s Mad About Katie!” And who wouldn’t be – what a doll she is! And Tripp? An absolute sweetheart! I know Tripp will probably take some heat by my saying that he is a “sweetheart,” but he is! What can I say?!! Sensitive is “in;” Macho is NOT!
The couple was beautiful, the day was beautiful – even though it rained all day (lol!) – the ceremony and reception were beautiful… EVERYTHING, everyone and every minute was simply spectacular! I even had the joy of unexpectedly running into colleagues and good friends of mine, Robin and Brenda of Belissima photographing the previous ceremony at the church, and another one of my couples that I photographed five years ago, Sherri & Bob who were guests at Katie and Tripp’s reception; it was a really, really great and fun day!
Epiphany Church is one of my favorite churches to shoot at – John (the church-guy) is so helpful and nice to work with and the church is so beautiful inside and out with such great lighting that it is always just a joy to shoot there! And The Pennsylvanian was glorious and “dressed to the nines,” per usual! Simply two excellent choices for a wedding. I believe the name of the band playing at the reception was the Grand Concourse Band, featuring the extraordinarily talented Pittsburgh Jazz vocalist, Maureen Budway – man that woman can sing! Google her; her accolades are numerous! And that first high-energy dance set really set the mood for the entire night. And speaking of singing! Katie wowed the crowd herself when she took the stage to sing to Tripp. Did I mention it was a fun night?!
I have so many fabulous images from the day that I don’t know where to begin to choose which images to post in a slide show or individually, but I’ll do my best. I believe at least two images from the day are going to be award-winning photos; I do hope you’ll enjoy my art!
