modern classic feel
From Taylor Cole Photography: I loved the design of this wedding because it matched the venue perfectly. It was classic yet modern, clean, bold and timeless. Everything from the bride's dress, to the florals to the groom's white tux.
Love and laughter
A couple of highlights from the day were when the bride was literally brought to (happy) tears when she saw her florals for the first time, the light hearted ceremony full of warm love and laughter and when the groom, his father and brother jumped on stage and played some songs for the guests. The story of their beautiful day unfolded right in front of us and it was a dream to capture.
from one bride to another
From the bride: If you are staying at a hotel for your wedding weekend, I would splurge a little and go stay at the hotel an extra night before the rehearsal dinner night. We were rushed checking into the hotel on Friday (wedding was Saturday) and then immediately had to get ready for the rehearsal dinner. It would have been nice to be checked in Thursday afternoon and be able to unpack, unwind and relax!
mind your bustle
Another piece of advice: Make sure that your bustle hook is strong. Maybe even double hook it! Someone stepped on my dress on the dance floor on accident and it broke. I ended up having to hold my train while I danced the rest of the night. I have seen this happen way too often at weddings!
