Abby & Thomas | Holland Performing Arts Center | Omaha, Nebraska

Abby and Tom were married on a beautiful warm day in Omaha, Nebraska.
They had their ceremony at St Patricks Catholic Church, then we took a party bus around downtown Omaha for photos with the reception at the gorgeous Holland Performing Arts Center. I had such a great time photographing their wedding, and visiting Omaha for the first time!

Tom and Abby met while they were both undergraduate students at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Abby opted for the random roommate assignment for dorm life, not expecting that it would play such a significant role in her future. Abby roomed with Audrey, a Gretna native who was dating (and now married to) Cameron, Tom’s roommate for the year. Abby and Tom’s first encounter was in the college cafeteria. Abby was planning to meet with Audrey after class for lunch one day. Tom happened to be in the cafeteria at the same time, so Audrey sat with him and his friends and saved Abby a seat. Anybody who knows Abby would not be surprised that she selected cereal for her lunch, and anybody who knows Tom would not be surprised to learn that his first words to Abby were, “that’s what you’re having for lunch.” Sounds like love at first sight.

Although the cafeteria encounter is everything a Princess could ask for in meeting her Prince Charming, neither Abby nor Tom expected the meeting to progress to anything more than friendship, despite all of Audrey’s efforts to change that. For the remainder of the school year, Abby and Tom saw each other frequently during mutual friend events, but friendship was the extent of their relationship. School ended, and Tom studied abroad in Europe and Abby headed back to her hometown for the summer. The following fall, the couple met up again and decided to further their relationship. Tom made it “official” on January 25th, 2012 when he asked Abby to be his girlfriend. It’s been bliss ever since.
