Branden and Sol – Madison, WI

My cousin Branden and his bride Sol were married about a month ago in a very private setting. They decided they still wanted to have a party so they basically had a whole wedding day, minus the ceremony, for all of their friends and family to come and celebrate. Most of Sol’s family is from Mexico, and about 40 of them made the trip up for the wedding.

The Morgan family has music pumping through their genes… so there were definitely some times for that to be demonstrated. My uncle is a percussionist for the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Ryan and Branden are both involved in the band Misery Signals. Not for the soft of hearing. Branden’s dad and brother surprised them with two songs during the receptions. Branden was certainly touched.

Sol on the other hand is a trained dancer and got Branden into shape for their first dance. They had quite a number. I never imagined a heavy metal drummer shaking his hips like he did haha

Other exciting parts in the evening included a drum circle, a bongo solo by Elec Simon of Stomp, and some capoeira. If you don’t know what capoeira is… look it up!

First person to guess Sol’s favorite color gets $100

Tom and Kaleigh
Tom and Kaleigh had a wonderful group of people surrounding them on their big day. It was great to see such a large crowd having so much fun all day and all night. I could tell how big of a day this was both for both of the families, and despite their limo driver heading to the wrong city (and I mean WRONG city.... 45 miles away wrong)... and some rain threatening the early part of the day, everything went off without a hitch and they sailed smoothly to the end... and then some. Last I saw them they were headed to the bar afterwards. Poor Kaleigh was so tired, but you could tell she wanted to make the most of it. I love the photos in front o ...

Chris & Ashley – Pittsburgh
It's not often that you get such a charming location for a wedding. An old golf club on the outskirts of Pittsburgh set the perfect scene for Chris and Ashley's wedding. It rained early on in the day, but by the time the ceremony started the sun was shining. Everybody in the wedding party was a great sport and it was good to hang out with all of them. The party later on was highlighted by a great live band... it was one of those nights you didn't want to end!

Abby and Steve – Pittsburgh
Early in June I made a second trip to the charming Morning Glory Inn, which rests softly in the hard streets of south Pittsburgh. I photographed a wedding here a few years ago and have always remembered the Inn fondly. I was so happy to hear that Abby and Steve had seen the photos I did there and wanted to hire me to shoot there again. Abby and Steve are amazing people, with so much going for them at such an early age. In the evening I asked them when they would be having kids and they said 'ohh... we have a while.' I asked them how old they were because they seem so grown up and learned they were both 23! Steve is currently working on proje ...
