lauren & joe…

a few days ago, we blogged details of the church of st anthony of padua.  i wanted to show off the cathedral that lauren & joe were married at as well as show off their amazing smiles and beautiful personalities.  their day began at the perfectly lit st anthony of padua catholic cathedral.  it is such a great church to shoot in with the natural daylight streaming through the giant stained glass windows.  after some bubbles and a quick slip on the front stairs, we spent some time in klehm arboretum.  our evening ended at venuti’s ristorante where lauren and joe glided across the dance floor to the sounds of the tvk orchestra and enjoyed the fine company of friends and relatives.  we hope you enjoy seeing their wedding as much as we enjoyed being a part of it.  enjoy.

we shoot quite a few weddings at st anthony of padua catholic cathedral and we have two that will be featured in the next few weeks on the blog.  when we blog weddings, we try to concentrate more on the individuals at the wedding instead of the details of the church.  but we love shooting in this church and we have compiled a few shots that we would love to share with you.  these photographs are from lauren & joe’s wedding, and from tarina & joseph’s wedding.  enjoy.
