Thank you and Congratulations to Katelyn Carveth and Kenae Brooks on their recent wedding reception at the Hilton Honors Providence Biltmore Hotel.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding reception!
From the setting, the ballroom on the 17th floor of the Hilton Honors Providence Biltmore Hotel[caption id="attachment_1452" align="aligncenter" width="1014"] Providence Biltmore Hotel[/caption]
to the love story brought to life by the welcome to the family, by dads, Eric Carveth, and Walter Brooks and toasts by Maid of Honor Anne Marie “Sissy” Skiffington & Best Woman, Monica “OJ” Cooley! Keefer Dowell grabbed the microphone to do a parody of all the things the bride & groom should do if they want to stay married! (Such as always go to bed angry with each other). Additional toasts after the cake cutting from Brendan “Scumbag” Powers and Geoffrey Lake led into traditional parent dances and a special song to Katelyn’s mom Dawn Carveth.
The traditional bouquet and garter toss included a cold one for Kenae! (Who chugged it down to cheers from the guests!) And Pedro putting the garter on Jacob![caption id="attachment_1455" align="aligncenter" width="274"] Putting on the Garter! (jbarros image)[/caption]
I had been looking forward to this wedding receptions dance party. (my favorite part of any wedding! Just saying) And I was not disappointed! The music guidelines that Katelyn & Kenae provided was spot on. The guests I had a chance to talk with at their tables and later had requests that everyone wanted to hear! The dancing never stopped! Don’t tell anyone they were even dancing on the windowsills![caption id="attachment_1493" align="aligncenter" width="625"] Dancing in the Windowsills! (jbarros image)[/caption]
Thank you to Monique Bernard Avila and Norbert Avila (Norbyyyy I didn’t know that was you till after the reception!) for referring this wedding to me.
Thank You Eric Carveth for your generous gratuity. I almost feel guilty for getting paid for doing what I love to do for such a great group of people!
Thank you to the staff at the Hilton Honors Providence Biltmore Hotel! Excellent food and superior presentation! From the beautiful ballroom to the sychronized “popping bottles” the atmosphere was outstanding;
Kudos to Ray Conaty (photographer) and Bryan Way of Bright Birch Films. I never saw you guys! (One of the greatest attributes of a wedding photographer or videographer is their ability to get the ‘shot’ without becoming the shot.) Great Job guys. Following is a little teaser of Katelyn & Kenae’s wedding day by Bryan.
