Tie-the-Knot Tuesday: A Mauckingbird Theatre Company Wedding


Peter and Brandon Wedding

We love when two worlds collide, especially when both of those worlds have to do with gay Philly. Today’s “The-The-Knot Tuesday” is a perfect example of that fusion.

Peter Reynolds and Brandon McShaffrey, both of Mauckingbird Theatre Company, got hitched in a lovely ceremony at the Patrick C. Haley Mansion in Joliet. Although McShaffrey and Reynolds are now both Philly-based, they were originally from Illinois.

Reynolds is the co-founder of Mauckingbird and McShaffrey is the company’s artistic director. Mauckingbird’s mission is to produce innovative, affordable, and gay-themed theater in the region, and have had recent hits such as a gender-bending version of The Importance of Being Earnest and a very gay production of Much Ado About Nothing.

Photographer Luis Fernando Rodriguez was on hand at the special wedding ceremony to capture the happy couple, and shared some of his snapshots with us.
