By the time Steven and Tricia got married we knew each other very well. A few years ago I photographed Steven's younger sister's wedding at Skytop Lodge. Steven and Tricia are regulars at our restaurant so I get to see them often. If you know the two of them, you know they are truly best friends. Tricia is a fantastic person and Steven is a proud Air Force veteran who served our county during several tours in the Middle East.
Without Tricia knowing, Steven commissioned a local artist, Anna Kaszupski, to secretly create a painting to be unveiled at the wedding reception. Steven's idea went like this. At the end of their first dance, he planned to hand Tricia a bouquet of flowers as he dropped to one knee. He anticipated Tricia's reaction and asked Anna to create painting of the scene, including her reacting to the surprise unveiling. The result was phenomenal. Not only is the painting stellar, but Tricia's reaction was right on target. The staff, disc jockey and I all knew in advance about the surprise. Steven and I met to coordinate the specifics of the unveiling. Please scroll down to see whether or not I captured the moment.....
