We just shot another wedding, this time right here in the Hampton Roads area. This wedding took place in St. Paul’s Catholic Church in downtown Portsmouth, and it’s beautiful architecture really set the mood for this event. Kevin Bates and Courtney Perkins seemed so ecstatic to start their lives together, and photographing this monumental day in their lives was truly a pleasure. After the ceremony, we headed over to the Portsmouth Women’s Club for the reception. The reception was festive and fun, and had amazing food courtesy of Loaves & Fishes by Dail’s. After everyone had their fill of the delicious salmon, the speeches started. Every speech was as emotional as they were entertaining, but the speeches made by the fathers of the bride and groom were particularly moving. The rest of the reception was full of dancing and bouquet throwing, and there was even a photo booth to add to the festivities. This booth, brought to the reception by Shutter Booth, added so much life to the already lively reception. Kevin and Courtney are now in Jamaica for their honeymoon, and we wish the best for the Bates and their new journey together!
