Ok, I love all my weddings! But I do have to admit I do have a few favorites every wedding season! And Team Shake was by far our favorite Erie wedding in the summer of 2018!
I met with Heather & Tim just before the holidays for coffee. Hiring a photographer was the last item on the “big things to get done” checklist! And when they mentioned they were having the band The Groove as their entertainment, I knew this was going to be a great wedding!
Shannon and I met Heather and her bridesmaids at the Marriott Hotel on the Bayfront to start our day. The Marriott is also where the ceremony would be taking place. So it was a smooth transition from photographing details and getting ready candids to setting up and rolling into the wedding ceremony.
After a hot but beautiful wedding ceremony, the bride, groom and their wedding party boarded a bus and headed out. We followed with the air conditioning blasting to Erie’s infamous Whippy Dip! The Whippy Dip was a special location for Heather and Tim, so it was a must to include in their wedding photos!
And everything that followed was nothing but fun! Laughter, jokes, photobombing, confetti popping, and a bottle of Fireball, to name a few happenings! This is what I live for as a wedding photographer! To experience and photograph how a couple can truly be authentic with each other and their friends!
Once we arrived at the Concourse of Union Station for the reception dinner, toasts, and first dances were a must. A bridesmaid made a charming little cake for the cake cutting, and then the party continued!
Now if you are on the fence on deciding whether or not to have live music for your wedding, let me tell you a little secret. IT IS A MUST!! What a night! The floor was full. Guests of all ages were having a great time, and the band The Groove was insanely talented! Coming from a girl who’s dad played in a rock band most of her life there is nothing like a live show!
