Some of the best images from a wedding come from the moments surrounding the ceremony. Sure, the ceremony is what the day is all about, but a wedding is so much more than the legal/religious portion of the day. Claire knew this well. Right from our first conversation, it became clear that Claire knew what kind of wedding she wanted to have. From the reveal to the party, Claire’s wedding was personal and fun.
The day started out Claire’s friend’s house on the brick paved streets of Claire’s childhood neighborhood, which made for a very sentimental reveal with the bride and groom. Everyone, (the bride and groom, the wedding party, everyone) were so fun and up for anything when it came to photos. After the reveal it was off to the Marland Mansion for some fun shots of just the couple.
The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Grace Episcopal Church. Afterwards it was off to the the manion, which was decked to the nines thanks to the beautiful flowers from Carriage House Flowers. Affairs to Remember provided some amazing food for the reception and A Sweet Success lived up to its name with the gorgeous cake.
The bride and groom had a photo booth set up which brought lots of laughs and great memories for the bride and groom as the photos were placed in a scrapbook for them to keep. The family and guests were amazing in participating in the fun of the karaoke machine. But nothing could compare to Claire’s rendition of “Bobby McGee!” What a truly personal and amazing night.
