Tracy and Scott - November 10th
Wednesday, November 14, 2007 - WeddingsWhat a weekend! Saturday we arrived at the historic Mountain View Inn, where the reception was held, to see what everyone was up to before the ceremony - Tracy ran up and gave us a big hug and smile when we arrived and off we went.
We didn't have much time prior to the ceremony for portraits, so we only grabbed a few, but later had a lot of time to get what we needed. The ceremony was held at the spectacular, Saint Vincent's Basilica, in Latrobe, PA. It was a shorter Catholic ceremony than we are used to, but that was fine, we were excited to get to spend some alone time with Tracy and Scott. As we were doing their couple portraits we finally had a chance to really talk, and Tracy and Scott are huge movie fanatics like us. I love finding out these little things that connect us to our clients, it just makes the whole experience so much more fun and relaxing for everyone.
After we froze out in the cold for a little while, we headed back over to Mountain View, where there was a break before the cocktail hour. Everyone warmed up and started the party early, while we whisked around down in the ballroom grabbing some details.
The cocktail time (it wasn't a full hour) started with our astonishment at the amount of cookies in the room. I have never in my life seen so many cookies and pastries in my life. The entire right side of the ballroom wall was lined with tables and tables of cookies. It was a cookie feast!
The other highlight for us at the reception was the dollar dance. It was one of the most fun events we have seen in a long time. Tracy did it the RIGHT way with a polka, and handing out shots - she ended up polka-ing (yeah made that up) with just about every guest in the room. I felt so bad for her too, because she was having problems with the bustle in her dress, so she ended up having to hoist her huge dress up and cling onto it with every person she danced with. She was so exhausted, hot and sweaty until the end I thought she was going to pass out! But once Scott broke through all of the guests crowded around Tracy and "rescued" his bride, they ran out into the lobby for a breather and their last shot with us!
Thanks so much to you both for inviting us to travel out to be included in your super-special day, it was an honor!!
Scott's working on getting all dashing looking. Joel was having some fun with the guys while I was over with the gals.
