I first met Adam back in 2000 in the Buckingham dorm during our freshman year at CU Boulder. It was an honors dorm, so needless to say we didn’t quite fit in, but we became buddies and ended up hanging out and keeping in touch throughout our four years at school. That trend has continued over the years, even as life has taken us different places. When Adam and his fiancee Rachel asked me to shoot their wedding in her hometown of Scranton, PA, I was honored and excited. Not only was I getting an opportunity to document their special weekend for them, but I was also getting to photograph my first Jewish wedding and I was getting to do it in the hometown of my favorite fictional paper company: Dunder Mifflin.
The wedding was centered around the historic Lackawanna Hotel in downtown Scranton. The hotel used to be a train station and the building has been a favorite of Rachel’s since childhood. It was a great venue for the weekend and provided many great backdrops for photos. Adam and Rachel are tons of fun and the weekend in Scranton was a blast. Even little mishaps like split pants for the groom, or some awkwardly dressed (and awkwardly elderly) wedding crashers, or a bouquet caught in a chandelier couldn’t keep the day from being a ton of fun for everybody (and especially fun for me to photograph).
Thanks to the Bornsteins for an amazing weekend, and I can only think of one way to end this post. Mazel tov!
