Valerie and James came to me a year ago with their hearts set on having me photograph their wedding. I have never been so honored in my life. They told me all of their plans sitting in my studio and I totally fell for them. They were so freaking cute, totally in love and exactly the kind of people I try to surround myself with in my business and my personal life. I was so excited they chose me.
The Bride and her Father walked down the isle to Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" and of course there wasn't a dry eye in the place. Not even mine. A family friend officiated their ceremony and multiple people braved the spotlight to give heartfelt readings.
Revolution Hall was a photographer's DREAM. Every place I turned my head I found a new spot that had the perfect light, the best design, and even some raw elements of the building that had been there for decades. We hiked to the tippy top of the building to the attic for their first look. With stairwells the height of 3 normal ones put together this was no small task. But once we got up there, and caught our breath, it was so worth it. Outside we found brick walls covered in climbing ivy and bushes and trees filled with spring greenery and flowers. The front of the brewery offered the best urban scene with painted brick buildings, cool signs, and vintage storefronts. We used every inch of the brewery, even the basement, where we got creative with barrels filled with craft beer and some off camera lighting.
The Newlyweds danced their first dance to Bright Eyes' "First Day of My Life" and the tears flooded back for everyone watching. Val and Jimmy had a beautiful outpouring of love and support. I wish them a lifetime of love, light and laughter.
