City Wedding: Karen + Trey

His best man stood up underneath the tent, donning his red vest and champagne glass in-hand. He held the microphone, and Trey prepared to listen to his speech. What did his brother have to say to him on his wedding day?

And as he started, Trey realized that his brother’s speech would take little planning. Trey was the one who did all of the writing. And then.. his brother read to the entire wedding crowd what Trey had written on Karen’s Facebook wall earlier in the day…

March 1, 2005 I decided to ask out a girl I thought was cute.. I never dreamed I’d be experiencing my last first date, my last first kiss, and even my last first fight.. You can’t really plan for meeting your soulmate at fifteen. But that’s the thing about this girl. She changed me so profoundly that I could not imagine living one second of this life without her. She’s my best friend, my confidant, and the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.. Today I get to experience another last.. Our last first dance as husband and wife.. “You see me, love me, just the way I am. For you, I am a better man” I love you Karen!

I can’t say enough how much I love shooting at Phipps Conservatory. It’s an absolutely beautiful venue for a wedding.
