Scene & Heard: Amber-Joi Watkins Tommy Domalski Wedding, Mike Vick, Shawn Bullard & Kijafa Vick

I really goofed this weekend, I was supposed to attend Miss Pennsylvania USA 2011 Amber-Joi Watkins wedding to Tommy Domalski at the Ritz-Carlton (10 Avenue of the Arts) on Saturday, but I hadnt RSVP’d, she wrote me the day before, and I found I had double booked myself, I was so bummed, but excited that these photos popped up so quickly.

I know that’s no excuse, I really do feel bad. Anywhoo.
Their photographer Ron Soliman  captured some amazing photos
 Amber Joi and Tommy, and bff Kate Beaver 2nd from left.
I took some of the very first shots of Amber Joi and Tommy when they first started dating. I got the privileged to see them fall in love. 
Here’s a shot of the happy couple in 2012 at Hair of the Dog.
 Ashley Johnson, former reporter at CW Eye Opener, where Amber Joi worked for a bit. Now Ashley is at myfoxhouston.com
Amber-Joi and her sisters from the Philadelphia Sixers Dancers where
they all used to dance for, including Beyonce’s right hand dancer Kimmie Gee
(next to her on the left). I remember photographing her with Beyonce
during one of her Philadelphia concerts during my newspaper years.
(The above quote and photos are from photographer Ron Soliman who also has more pixs on his site.)

 Another casualty of Saturday, me covering the opening of Pink Elephant at 828 N. Broad Street. Now I will say I did a drive by at 5PM and the place was packed. But I couldn’t find a parking spot anywhere (Ugh 5PM was the time I was supposed to be at the wedding. What happened was I got stuck in traffic in NJ and then never made if back into Philly ontime to attend the Wedding or properly cover this event, zoink and I had a migraine.)

 Congrats to Hadas Kuznits, Dan Reinherz, Geffen on the arrival of little Axel.

 Christine Maddela has settled into Las Vegas nicely, and completed a little makeover.


Newly Engaged Christine Maddela Leaves NBC 10 Philadelphia and Heads To Sin City and the Little White Chapel?

As I tweeted this week CBS3 traffic reporter Jessica Boyington going to @NBCPhiladelphia, now we hear @christnemaddela going to LV station. She just got engaged last week, so could it be a Little White Wedding Chapel ceremony.

I photographed Christine in the first weeks when she arrived at NBC10 Philly, out with friends including Philly native Erin Como who does traffic reporting in Nashville, Tn

Then this past December I ran into Christine enjoying South
Street and her now fiance Christopher
Goss, GM Morton’s KOP with their friend Miguel Mendez. Christine came to us from Nashville where she was an anchor/reporter. She started at NBC10 as a traffic reporter. After a few months a new News Director Anzio Williams, came along and made some changes. One was ending the shared helicopter agreement they had with other stations. Christine agreed to do the traffic, and cover breaking news in the helicopter; and eventually began filling in for vacationing anchors. On the slower news days you could still find her back at the traffic map helping us navigate the highways. All these positions, her sunny disposition, and her team player attitude takes her to the next level as the evening anchor at Fox 5 in Las Vegas. Don’t be surprised if someday you see her on national news back here in Philly. This young lady is making moves. Congratulations Christine and best of luck.

With the exodus lately at NBC10, and this prediction (3/16) coming true, makes me wonder about Anzio , thoughts?
