Wedding Date: August 10, 2013
My first Real Wedding Feature is near and dear to my heart. Not only do I get the opportunity to share this couple’s stunning photos, but a friendship I cherish. From big family, to big venue, to even bigger love – these pictures by Christopher Joslin Photography (the Groom’s uncle) captures the mad, crazy romance between the couple, the bride’s classic beauty and the old Hollywood theme. (You would never know that the bridal salon lost power and the transportation to the church caught fire leaving the bride and her bridal party stranded on the side of the highway!)
Greg & Vicky – Thank you for not only letting me be a part of your special day, but for allowing me to share it!
From the bride: As soon as Greg and I walked through the cathedral doors we fell in love with the church and its easy to see why. I remember us smiling ear to ear because we knew this was the place we were going to become man and wife. It was the same amazing thrill that we felt when we found our dream reception venue.
Greg and I share a love of movies and anything old Hollywood. Whether we are on our couch or at the movie theater checking out the latest flick, we seriously cherish this time spent together. It only made sense to have a wedding that encompassed such a big part of who we are as a couple. We decided to go with a movie theme wedding at the gorgeously, elaborate Warner Theater in Erie, PA. We had so much fun making this wedding our own by keeping with the old Hollywood movie theme. As guests walked into the venue they were greeted with our names in lights on the marquee. A feeling I will never forget. We traded traditional table numbers for black and white photos of our favorite actors/actresses (new and old). On the table for each guest awaited our favorite movie theater treats, popcorn and sour patch kids. Greg and I loved creating our movie film strip photo booth, where guests dressed themselves fancily all night long. My favorite personal touch (besides our signature adult root beer float) were the posters Greg’s uncle Chris created for us. We had so many laughs replicating the Titanic and Dirty Dancing posters and to see our guests enjoy them as much as we did was truly rewarding.
