Last summer I donated a big gift certificate to the local PBS auction for their annual fundraiser. It was exiting to see the donation mentioned time and time again during the month of the fundraising event. I got some emails with questions about what the coverage entailed, etc. That even heightened the thrill of being involved, as I anticipated meeting the winner and beginning the planning of their big day.
In the end the Martin Henry family won, and their daughter Rebecca contacted me to arrange a meeting so we could get acquainted and talk about her wedding day. Becky was in town from Indy to taste cakes, and look at floral choices, and I met her mom Vicki, her sister Jamie and her at Club Soda for a cocktail (or two) and some delightful chat and love fest. They were so appreciative of my donation to PBS, I was so appreciative of their support of same. I made fast friends that night.
Fast forward to the wedding day. How lucky can I get? Seriously! The handsomest men, the most gorgeous girls. A huge loving family completely immersed in this occasion. The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The Scottish Rite. A trolley for a couple of hours in between and all of downtown Ft Wayne as our backdrop. This was a fabulous day with clients who wanted cool photos just as much as they wanted a rocking party. A photographer’s dream!
Thanks Becky and Steve, and your entire entourage.
Thanks Martin and Vicki for being benevolent benefactors to a worthy cause.
Thanks to ALL for being the perfect subjects.
Thanks to the entire Henry family for their graciousness, that day and every day!
I’ve made LOTS new friends–the ultimate icing on this cake!
