UPDATE: Krista sent me a nice e-mail just minutes after I sent her a preview of her video: “Thank you SO MUCH for sending this out! It totally made my day and I can’t wait to send it out to everyone, especially those people who couldn’t be there! Laurie did a fantasic job and I can’t wait to see the rest! Have a great weekend!”
UPDATE: I just got some quick feedback from Ann Marie: “The sneak peak is fantastic!! You did such an amazing job! We can’t wait to show it to everyone!” Me neither, Ann Marie – thanks!
I’ve always enjoyed traveling to Fort Wayne, whether it was to shoot graduations in the old days, shoot weddings each of the last few years, visit Amish country nearby, or bring the kids to the awesome Children’s Zoo and Science Central. On this particular weekend, I drove up there to cover Heather & Sean’s beautiful wedding mass at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. Heather was recovering from a recent spate of illnesses, but she looked gorgeous nonetheless, and quite relieved to finally be able to kiss the groom and not care about getting him sick anymore. The reception was in what appeared to be an “inflatable” banquet hall adjacent to the Marriott Hotel. Sounds strange, I know, but the inside was very nicely decorated, and the prime rib during dinner was delicious! Everyone had a wonderful time, and I’m sure that Heather & Sean are feeling perfectly fine in Maui right about now.
While I was working in Fort Wayne, Laurie worked a little bit closer to home, covering Jill & Stephen’s ceremony at Northminster Presbyterian Church. Then everyone made their way to the reception at the Meridian Hills Country Club, where photographer Dawn Fisher of Galleria Studios (who referred the couple to us – thanks, Dawn!) got some great shots of the couple while Laurie captured lots of candid moments at the cocktail hour. The reception was a lively affair, and this was interestingly the third time Laurie worked at this venue this year. (Her next reception will be her third at the Conrad Hotel this year as well – pretty strange but cool!)
Here are the highlights from Kim & Adam’s beautiful 6/16/07 wedding and reception in the Ashland, KY area:
UPDATE: Kim just e-mailed me with some nice feedback: “The highlight video is amazing, you did such a great job…thank you so much for helping us remember every detail of our wedding!” My pleasure, Kim!
