So I got out of the car to walk into the bride's home and I look up and there is their neighbor Jay who I went to Ithaca College with in New York. I also photographed his wedding way back. I walk into the home of the bride and sure enough their next door neighbor Laura pops in to say hi, we went to grade school together. This is all in a part of Scranton I never set foot in. Molly's father and I lamented the property tax situation and the wedding day began.
Just minutes away the ceremony was performed at St. Ann's Basilica. As I ascended the back stairway I found myself amongst the music and surrounded by the pipes of the organ. Jeff Leas an accomplished trumpet player popped into view. Before heading downtown we made some family photographs in front of the basilica. We worked our way around Courthouse Square in the Electric City before heading up the valley to Fiorelli's.
DJ Marquis set the scene and the celebration of the wedding kicked into high gear! They had a really cool slow-motion photo booth which had everyone howling.
