My First Wedding

First off, I want to thank you all for your encouraging comments about my first wedding.

I met this weekend's couple at my parent's restaurant after the bride recognized my dad from our wedding photos. I offered my services and they gladly jumped at the opportunity. The bride has a very simple, classic aesthetic and we worked together to create a classic, elegant wedding.

When their photographers post pictures I'll be sure to let you know but for now here are my very non professional looking photos (don't worry, we're saving for a dSLR).

The ceremony took place at the lovely Lutheran church down the street from the Behemoth. Aisles were lined with ruscus tied with cream ribbon.

The ceremony was in the lovely Spohn Ballroom. I spent 5 hours decorating the space Saturday morning followed by 10 hours of running like a mad woman. The ballroom is on the 3rd floor so I found myself hauling gifts, flowers and everything else up & down the stairs dozens of times.





The day went beautifully and all in all I can't wait until my next wedding.
