Crown Point Wedding Rehearsal

- click image to enlarge -

Last night was Anthony and Beth's wedding rehearsal in Crown Point, Indiana at St. Matthias church.  I don't always get to attend rehearsals, but I like to if possible, as I get to meet the family and of course, take a few test shots such as the one above.

This also gives me the opportunity to take in the ceremony and plot out my positions for various photos.  The example above is a time in their ceremony when I will have to immediately head for the center aisle as they will be pronounced man and wife after this moment.  I will want to be able to capture the first kiss and of course the procession out.

If I'm unable to attend because of a scheduling conflict, I will go over things with the officiator beforehand and of course the bride and groom.

When this post is published I will be already covering Beth and Anthony's big day.  We will start with Getting Ready shots in Lowell, Indiana with Beth, her bridesmaids and mom.  Before the ceremony, my assistant and I will track down the groom for formals at St. Matthias.  Then it will be time for some outdoor winter shots in the downtown Square of Crown Point and then the reception at Avalon Manor in Merrillville.

If you see a bride and groom walking down Main St., be sure to honk and yell congratulations to Beth and Anthony!!
