Thanks to a recent inquiry about shooting a wedding at Scott’s Restaurant I realized Joseph and Mary’s wedding never got posted to the blog! How could I forget the couple with the most interesting combination of names? It was an especially fun wedding for me because I photographed Mary’s cousins wedding (Rose and Archie) a few years ago and have since become really good friends with them. So seeing Rose and Archie and all the other familiar faces from their wedding made the whole event really comfortable for me to photograph. The only hiccup was in the rush to leave the hotel, the bouquet was left behind! Note to all the brides out there: have a checklist of things never to leave behind for your wedding! The highlight by far was hearing Joseph pull off a special number for Mary — he’s quite the romantic and left all the ladies in the house swooning. Joseph and Mary – a year has gone by but I hear Southern California is treating you well — best of luck to you both!
A few words about the venue… Scott’s Restaurant in Walnut Creek is constantly booked for weddings for good reason — they’re old pro’s at putting together small to mid-size wedding celebrations. At the past two weddings I’ve photographed there, they were actually pulling off simultaneous wedding parties in different parts of the restaurant. The staff was efficient and courteous as one would expect, but not always receive from just any wedding venue.
