Tabitha and Adam have spent a very busy year planning for their wedding. Tabitha described herself as “a planner” and she couldn’t have been more accurate. One of the challenges of their wedding day schedule was a long break in between the ceremony and reception since the church could only accommodate an early wedding ceremony. We had a detailed plan to execute in our long break that included bridal party photos, family portraits, and a meal for the bridal party. I was thankful for Tabitha’s planing (along with extra time built in) because we needed every minute due to some lengthy thunderstorms during our portrait time. Through all of this scrambling and reshuffling, Tabitha and Adam were completely calm and relaxed. What a great start for their marriage to be calm in the face of stress on an important day!
Tabitha and Adam were married in a Catholic ceremony at Mary Mother of Hope Parish in New Castle, Pennsylvania. Their ceremony was held at Avalon Golf and Country Club. They spent the first part of their cocktail hour greeting all of their guests as they entered the ceremony. You’re not seeing double–Adam has an identical twin brother. During his speech at the reception, he humorously joked “Thank you to all of you who wished me ‘Congratulations’ today, I will pass on the message to my brother, the groom.”
Nicki and I had a great day taking photos of such a happy group in some very nice (indoor!) locations. I was thankful that the weather cleared later in the evening so the guests were able to enjoy a cigar bar. I do love shooting photos that capture this relaxed environment away from all of the action on the dance floor.
Congratulations, Tabitha and Adam!
