Kerry and Nick’s wedding was one I was looking forward to for a very long time.  Nick and my brother have been great friends since highschool, so having the opportunity to photograph Nick’s wedding to Kerry was so special to us.  They started with a gorgeous, formal Catholic Mass at St. James Cathedral and followed it up with a rockin’ party at The Palace Ballroom.  321 Foto was there with their awesome photo booth (that Ben and I enjoyed, as always!) and the gorgeous details were endless.  Tamara of Simply by Tamara Nicole was on hand from start to finish and made sure everything ran smoothly.  All in all a perfect day.  Enjoy.

I sure do love a downtown wedding.  Especially because I can get shoe shots like that.
