A happy wedding celebration. Alexis and Jarrett exchanged vows and rings in a beautiful ceremony, witnessed by family and friends. They were declared husband and wife………..
then they jumped the broom (the bride’s mother had decorated it in the wedding colors)
Alexis and Jarrett granted me permission to post photos from their Saturday March 31st wedding.
Wishing them every happiness!
(You might remember the Christmas party of Pastor Garland (his mother) when I photographed their church dinner. They’re in that picture too!)
Somehow I got the whole congregation in the frame. Maybe I needed a wider lens for so many in a group shot but it didn’t matter. Pastor Karen Garland is seated to the right of front and center. She asked for this shot and everyone gathered together. This is her congregation. They felt the love and squeezed in together, getting rid of the air! I stood on a chair. This is the fifth year I’ve photographed the Zion Apostolic Assembly Christmas Dinner. Tonight it was at the Churchill Country Club. There was a choir, mimes, preaching, gift baskets and a good dinner and dessert. My friend Yvette invites me every year. Their church is in McKeesport. It was a former Catholic church and has a beautiful stained glass window of a saint but the name escapes me for them moment.One time I went there and shot a wedding. They do a lot of good for many. Tutoring, Boys to Men and Girls to Women Youth Programs. It is an honor to be invited to share the evening together and I know they appreciate the photos I shoot.
