Christin & Kyle – 6/9/07

Photo by Nantz Photography

Christin exchanged vows with Kyle yesterday in her hometown of New Castle at First Baptist Church Family Life Center, a huge state-of-the-art worship facility that used to be, surprisingly, a Wal-Mart! Christin is one of the sweetest brides I have ever worked with, and that lovely spirit was reflected as well in her groom, family, friends and over 350 guests. The photomontage I created for her was shown immediately before the processional, which was unusual but set the perfect tone for the rest of the ceremony.

Afterwards, photographer David Nantz (who referred the couple to me – thanks Dave!), the wedding party and I headed out to Memorial Park for some fun photos. I rarely suggest ideas for poses, but this group was so fun, and Dave so accomodating, that I couldn’t resist throwing some wacky ideas out there that I hope worked out well. (By the way, Dave’s residential loft, which was converted from a three-story brick lodge, is going to be featured on HGTV’s “reZONED” this Wednesday night – too cool!)

Then we drove up S.R. 3 to the Cornerstone Center for the Arts (which was beautifully converted from a Masonic Temple – I’m sensing a renovation theme here) in Muncie for a fun reception catered by MCL Catering. The chicken-over-stuffing thingy was one of the tastiest creations I’ve ever had, and the family-style serving of the food was a unique touch that added to the sense of community. My good friend, DJ Jim Cerone presided over the formalities with his usual spot-on class and professionalism, and everyone, including the many kids in the crowd, had a terrific time.
