Melanie and Patrick

Celebratory – that’s the word I would use to sum of up their wedding. The camaraderie and the excitement exuded from every single person in attendance. All came prepared to raise a glass, to dance, and to usher in Melanie and Patrick’s marriage with a grand beginning. Before the night was over, Jesse was palls with the groomsmen, scheduling pool nights. It was just one of those weddings we forgot that we were just photographers.

Some of my favorite things?

  1. I loved the hotel that Melanie and the bridesmaids got ready at. The midcentury/modern look created an stylish background for the preparation photos that I don’t often get to work with.
  2. The downtown jaunt with Melanie and Patrick. For their photos, we got to walk some of downtown’s alleys and roads, and it was a lot of fun.
  3. Their dance floor. Everyone, from toddlers to grandmothers tore up that dance floor.
