Having the wedding ceremony prior to the actual wedding day? Man oh man, does that ever relieve a lot of stress! 😀 So often, brides and grooms get wrapped up in the moment to moment stresses of the wedding day – from ceremony start to making sure dinner is at the proper time, a most special event can be lost to micromanagement. A ceremony seperately, followed by a celebratory reception? Now that’s where it’s at! You’ll notice this set of images lacks that ceremonial portion, and simply captures two people in love, starting their lives together – door games, tea ceremony, and party. Once again, the amazing Nathaniel D was my secondary photographer for this event.
Man of the hour.
Door games! Loretta listens in from upstairs while her husband starts his assault.
This image deserves a huge print. From Loretta’s makeup work (cheers Peggy Lee Bridal), the soft light, and the stunning expression.
This just makes me happy.
Another shot that I just felt deserved a lot more space to be appreciated. There were about 10 versions of this frame shot from slightly different angles, and this one just seemed to pull everything together.
Spencers at the Waterfront always has amazing backdrops.
A bit of play with light and shadow helps create a bit of mood here.
Nate helps out as a light-test subject with one of Loretta’s lovely BMs.
This bridal image just sings.
Just a capture that I couldn’t help but share from our groom.
This helps to give an idea of just how great everything looked.
Sometimes a slideshow is great laughs for every other person at the wedding. 😉
Strapless dresses make for tricky tosses. Thankfully our bride is an awesome sport and didn’t mind at all that we post up this shot, which is pretty damn funny.
