I capped off our busiest summer ever in style last Friday with Lindsay & Brian’s elegant wedding and reception at the Omni Severin Hotel downtown. While Julie Acheson of Royal Creations was dressing up the ballroom in a stunning black and white floral motif, I joined photographers Bobbi+Mike for some fun shots in the bridal suite, on the big staircase, and outside on one of the nicest days we’ve had all summer. While the guys were fairly subdued behind the scenes, the ladies were having a blast, thanks to Bobbi’s energy and some hoppin’ tunes on an iPod. This spirited, easy-going bride didn’t want or need any accessories and was ready to party!
Dr. Scott Toussaint presided over the beautiful ceremony, giving us the backstory on each of the ceremony’s traditions as the couple went through them. After the couple recessed under a shower of petals (my favorite of Julie’s special touches), we took Lindsay and Brian outside for some more fun shots as the wind really picked up. The dinner time was as lovely as always, and the Omni’s Carrie Sprague (who along with Bobbi referred the couple to me – thanks, ladies!) spoiled us as she always does. Jeremy Gearries of DJs Direct kept the music relatively contemporary much to the crowd’s delight. The dessert bar was to die for – a perfect ending to a perfect summer wedding season!
