First off I’d like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of our family, friends, and awesome clients! Our 2011 was challenging but great and we are looking forward to what 2012 will bring.
I’d also like to say CONGRATS to all the couples who are celebrating your recent engagement! We have only a few dates left for 2012 so don’t wait to contact us!
So, I’m finally finding the time to post about one of our favorite weddings ever! We could not have asked for a better way to end our 2011 wedding season! Melissa and Jim pulled out all the stops from the dress down to the decorations. Their colors were black, purple, and glitter! Melissa created mostly everything herself and we were really impressed with how she incorporated the colors, the glitz, and tiaras. Everything was perfect!
The ceremony at the exquisite St. Peter’s Cathedral in downtown Erie was the start of the awesomeness. The ambiance in that church is just fantastic to shoot in and we really enjoyed capturing the entire surroundings and celebration.
After the wedding vows the bride & groom left us plenty of time to visit a few locations for some super fun pictures. I absolutely love couples who are up for not-your-average backdrops and a different look. We had a great time playing on some train tracks at Union Station, moved on to a graffiti wall [done by some amazing artists!], and then we stopped at Frontier Park for pictures with the fall leaves.
This was possibly my favorite part of the day! Anyone who knows me knows I have a love for butterflies. We released monarch at our own wedding 6 years ago. This was the second time this year that we were graced by these beautiful creature. Check out Kim & Brian’s engagement pictures at Goodell Gardens for more butterfly pics.
The reception at The Avalon Hotel was spectacular! The decorations and table settings were great and DJ Posey’s up-lighting made everything come together. Reception pictures have so much dimension when there is extra low light in the room and we loved it!
I have seen candy bars before but this one “takes the cake”. Melissa put the entire thing together herself. Nice job girl!
The bride & groom’s 2 year old daughter was the cutest flower girl ever! Every time I pointed the camera at her she was ready with a big smile to go along with her pretty blue eyes.
We had such a blast at this wedding and ended up staying until the very end. Our favorite part of the job is meeting awesome people an the friendships we make. Melissa and Jim are the exact type of people we love to work with and we are so grateful for meeting them. We wish you the very best in your marriage and best wishes for your family!
Happy New Year!
