Earle Brown Heritage Center was the location for the entire wedding for Mark and Corein. Here are some of the bridal details and events that took place in the bridal prep room.
The “first-look” was a touching moment for these two. Photography is hands-off at this time. I’m positioned far from the couple and nothing is orchestrated. Its an organic moment in the day.
After the first-look, we walked the grounds of Earle Brown for photos.
There was a trellis covered in vines that made for a lovely backdrop at this sunny point in the day.
Mark and Corein were great sports throughout their photos. Lots of giggles and conversation got us through this adventure.
On our way back we stopped at a bench surrounded in rose bushes.
The ceremony took place outside. There was much debate about the ceremony placement as rain was projected for the exact ceremony start time.
The rain held off just long enough and the ceremony was beautiful.
Immediately after the ceremony we shot a few bridal party photos. It was the fastest bridal party session ever because it sprinkled on us during the photos and got stronger by the minute. I was thankful to be working with amazing and humble people. Not a single person complained about the rain. Everyone was in great spirits and their wonderful personalities shined.
Back inside the reception room, the candles were lit and ready for guests to enter.
Centerpieces were lovely and reflected the brides bouquet with dainty elegance.
I enjoy shooting the rings during the reception because there’s usually candle light that I can incorporate with the ring photo.
The bride and groom paused for one last set of posed photos as their guests entered the room for dinner.
The self-serve dessert bar offered cheesecake and chocolate tarts.
Dancing was theatrical and full of spunk! I had never seen an entire dance floor serenade each other during the Grease “Summer nights” song.
