This is it. My last wedding to share with you from 2017. 16 couples, 16 families, 16 special celebrations. What an honor it is to be with people on the most special day of their lives and document it all. I’m still in awe that this is my job. That I get to spend all the special moments with my brides as they get primped for the day of their dreams, and the grooms as they share in a few good laughs before walking down the aisle. That mothers-of-the-bride & grooms ask my opinion on how they look, and that sometimes I’m a pinch hitter florist and pin the boutinears on the lapels of the fathers. That in years to come, my pictures will be shared with future generations and some day, years from now, a bride will ask to recreate a picture of her grandparents wedding day and will reference one that I took. (Of course I’m sure photos will be in 3D by then and will probably be taken by a robot). It amazes me. And I feel very blessed.
It’s truly an honor to introduce to you the newest Mr. & Mrs. Scribi, Christine and Joey. Being part of their day was extra special because I’ve photographed this couple together at their brother and sister-in-law, Danny and Ashley’s wedding last November and I am very familiar (and in love) with my Quincy crew who filled the seats and dance floor at this event. I felt more like I was a wedding guest on this day than a photographer as I was familiar with the bridal party and many of the faces in the crowd. Christine was so calm and cool as she got ready in her parents house on an extremely freezing Veterans Day weekend, and her and her mother had every single detail coordinated from her blue and gold polkadot wedding binder to her monogrammed table cloth. You can tell they put so much love into creating a day that would be memorable for all who took part.
I met Joey and the guys at the church, where he had the most adorable and appropriate amount of wedding nerves. And as his bride walked down the aisle with her dad on her arm, I could see all the Scribi men well up a teensy bit. Joey said he knew from the minute he saw Christine that she would be his wife, and I think that moment when the church doors opened, was everything he imagined it to be.
A special shout out goes to the bridal party and family for braving the horrible cold on this day to get photos of the sunset at Granite Links, which never, ever disappoints.
My beautiful girl, Christine.
The first wedding where someone actually objected…
You two. I love you. I know your life is going to be so much fun and I hope every day is as special as this one. Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me be with you! Beach this summer?
Happy first married Christmas, my friends!
