I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of a military couple this Monday. Yes, Monday. Annie and Keith had planned to get married this summer and had plans cleared. In mid December Annie got notice that she will be deployed in early January, really kinda messing up the wedding plans. Annie’s aunt happened to mention the family dilemma to Cheryl Steinhurst when she was in Cheryl restaurant. Cheryl quickly came up with the idea to reach out to the wedding professional community to see if there were any that would donate services for a hurry up and plan wedding in a couple weeks.
I saw Scott Fader’s request in a Facebook link through my friend Jon Devine and immediately responded. I was able to bring along my friend Rocky Shattuck to shoot video.
The wedding was Monday 12/28/15 at St Andrews in Rochester and the reception was at Steiny’s Restaurant and Banquet Hall.
