I had first met with Cathy back in January, and from our first chat, I was super excited as she was sharing withe me the details her & Ray were putting into their rock n roll themed wedding day!
I started the morning with the couple at a local hotel, where to keep in theme for the wedding day, they requested the room Elvis Presley himself had stayed in
Cathy absolutely loved her flowers
The ladies were all having a great time hanging out
Watching as the final details were being put into place
Next it was time for the dress
Finally the shoes
The cremony was held at St Peter's Cathedral in Portland
Ready to go
Cathy's dad was proud
The ceremony began
Though it was a bit drizzly, the couple wanted to go to the Eastern Prom for photos
Rock n Roll!
Guests were seated at tables named after 80's Hair Bands, were given CD's made by the couple of their favorite rock songs and ballards, and were able to sign this guitar- guest "book"
Toasts by the Maid of Honor & Cathy's dad were funny!!
After dinner it was time to cut the cake
And then the dancing began
Cathy enjoyed a dance with her dad
And then the band Boyz Gone Wild played Cathy & Ray's first dance song
And Ray, who sometimes plays with BGW in addition to his own musical projects, sang along on the chorus
After the formalities, the couple changed into comfier clothes for dancing and rocking!
Everyone was having a great time!
Lots and lots of air guitar!
And of course singing along!
Ray picked up the bass, to join in on Crazy Train!!
And Cathy took the mic to sign a tune or two
Ray was smitten with his wife!!
Finally the couple joined the band for a last song of the evening
Cathy, Ray & Boys Gone Wild!
You know what they say, a couple that rocks together, stays together!!
Cathy & Ray, it was an absolute pleasure to be chosen to photograph your wedding day for you, much love and happiness to you both!!!
