A Swanky Secret Society Wedding

It’s not every day you get to fling sexual innuendo at your clients’ closest family and friends. When Katie told me there’d be karaoke at their wedding I jokingly mentioned that one of the only songs I can sing is Shoop by Salt-N-Pepa. The mere suggestion to do karaoke at their reception quickly turned into a mandatory request. Before I knew it, I was rapping my heart out in front of Katie and Marshall’s entire community of loved ones.

I took solace in the fact that just moments prior to stepping on the stage, I had photographed everyone doing whiskey shots on the dance floor. And also the fact that this wedding was full of just about the nicest people I’ve ever met.
