Krystina & Joe
were married in June of 2022 at one of my favorite venues out in Prospect, PA called White Barn. I've photographed a few weddings there now and it is always a pleasure. I started the day out at Hampton Inn Butler where I got to hang out with Joe and his groomsmen while they got ready for the day. They were a riot, so much fun to photograph. The toucans on Joe's custom suit made for such a fun and unique detail.
From the hotel, I made my way over to White Barn where Krystina had a first look with her dad and then with Joe. I always enjoy first looks, they never fail to bring a tear to my eye. While the beautiful couple was outside getting portraits done with Joe's convertible, it began to rain, so they made the decision to move their ceremony inside, which ended up beautifully.
I only stayed for the beginning of the reception, but the introductions were amazing with each pairing doing something unique and well thought out. One of the pairings did a tango dance for their introduction, another stumbled in like Captain Jack Sparrow, and yet another came in dressed in an inflatable t-rex costume. When Joe and Krystina were introduced, they went straight into their first dance, which was done elegantly and skillfully.
It was a beautiful day and I'm glad to have second shot this wedding for Nadine Photography.
