Matt Groves married Katie Rogers this past weekend. Fun wedding! So glad to be part of the celebration!
I brought along my Olympus M10. It’s lightweight and easy to grab & go. I also didn’t want to look like the professional wedding photographer, so I used a smaller camera. Drawbacks, however, are that the Olympus doesn’t produce the quality images of my Canon 6D, and it doesn’t do an excellent job at high ISOs in low light conditions. I did my best with the camera I had with me, and used Nik Define to clean up some of the noise.
The Groves family are long time friends we met in GA when we all lived in the same neighborhood. I have fond memories of our time together. Matt Groves is one of my son’s best friends. His other best friend is Matt’s identical twin brother, Nate. The three met when my son, Trevor, was 6-years-old and they were as thick as thieves during our 7-year-stay in GA.
Matt was in Trevor’s wedding 3 1/2 years ago. Trevor was honored to be in Matt’s wedding.
The ceremony took place at the city’s old courthouse. It was scheduled to be outdoors, but inclement weather brought it inside.
After the ceremony, guests gathered on the first floor for appetizers and beverages. It was great mingling with the extended Groves family and my immediate family.
There were a few laughs……actually, many laughs.
We enjoyed dinner, more drinks and dessert. I caught Katie as she was moving from table to table after dinner.
You can’t beat fun in a photo booth – What a hoot!
Hurry, grab different props! The automatic camera is about to take another photo!
Congratulations Katie & Matt! #gonegroves
