Where It All Started
Catherine Fiehn LeStrange is an ordained non-denominational minister and lover of all things wedding!! A full-time professional photographer for over 20 years and an actress in her spare time, she has attended over 2000 marriages.
My start- When I was a child my Aunt Sheila was a Justice of the Peace and married couples in her rose garden often. Since I lived next door and was a nosey, curious child, she usually considered me a menace. BUT, but one day she saw me lurking and called me over to take a photo of her and the happy couple. I'm doubtful that that photo even turned out well, but I was hooked and a career was born.
On Valentine's Day 2017 I married the love of my life Eric LeStrange (no relation to Bellatrix) on top of the Empire State Building, I threw my bouquet in Time's Square and had our reception dinner at Carmine's & cut our cake at Sugar Factory with our three children and our grandson.
Cool fact: You can see me as an inmate OTNB or running around being merry in Hallmark holiday movies!
