Ruthie and Kevin at St. Henry's

Ruthie and Kevin were married at St. Henry's Catholic Church on October 2, 2010.  I occasionally photograph the weddings of high school sweethearts but this couple went to the same grade school (St. Henry's), same high school (Father Ryan) and same University (Tennessee Tech).  Ruthie told me that she and Kevin held hands on the swings in the playground when they were children so they decided it would be appropriate to do their wedding photos there in the playground and grotto.  I discovered that Kevin and I not only both went to Father Ryan but were both Eagle Scouts who pledged Fiji in college.  Half of Kevin's fraternity was there and I took a fun video of his buddies singing Don McClean's American Pie for the last song.  The bride and groom didn't see each other before the ceremony and it was dark after the ceremony so we couldn't use any natural light for the photos but I found some pretty great spots in the church which had been renovated since the last time I was there.  I'm looking forward to hearing how the newlyweds' honeymoon went.  Ruthie won the trip to Hawaii as a contestant on the Price is Right last year.
