Wedding: Sarah & Tazren: November 13, 2010

Thinking back to when I spoke with Sarah about the date for her wedding I was convinced it was going to be cold and the trees would be bear on their wedding day.  In fact the day was completely the opposite.  All you brides-to-be, keep that in mind that November can actually be quite mild and still great for getting some photography outside.

Sarah and I are old friends from high school, Carlisle High School to be exact.  We are part of the Thundering Herd forever. (Thundering Herd is plural for kick ass group of bison just so you know).  A couple other friends from high school were in the wedding as so it was extra special to be able to capture moments for all of them.  I had another surprise as I was taking shots during the reception and began to notice some other familiar faces but these were faces from my years at Kutztown University.  It was fun to catch up with a couple of guys that I had taken education classes with…though I never became a teacher as you can see.

The day began at Sassy Cuts Salon and Spa in downtown Carlisle where Sarah and her 9 bridesmaids all got spectacular styling and make-up jobs.  From there we headed to the church, Grace Baptist Church, right across the street from our high school.  Sarah and Taz decided to do a first look before the wedding which allowed us to capture some really touching moments.  We were also able to get the formals out of the way so that they were free to go right to the cocktail hour and hang out with everyone.  The reception was held at the Carlisle Ribbon Mill.  This place was full of character.  Over the past 5 years it has been renovated into a great space for special gatherings.  I visited it before the wedding and got to see them working on the downstairs to convert it into a home-made pretzel restaurant.  I was sad it wasn’t finished but hope to go back and get my hands on what is suppose to be the best pretzel around. (better than Auntie Anne’s if you can believe that)

One of the most interesting and original details about this wedding is that Taz decided to get his ring tattooed on instead of having an actual ring.  Although it was still healing I took a couple of photos

I wanted to also send a thank you to my co-pilot, Thomas Marshall.  I couldn’t have captured everything without him there.  This was his first wedding and he was able to give me some really great images to give to Sarah and Taz.  He took a great of one Sarah getting her make-up done and the really cool shot of the cross on top of the church.  That detail had escaped my eye so I was very thankful he had been so observant.

Without further ado I present you with my favorite shots from the day. (it was extremely hard to narrow down shots for this…I may have gone overboard with the amount this time!)
