Amy and Eric’s ceremony was held back at Le Meridien, on the lovely “rooftop” terrace there (it’s actually just on the third floor, but it feels like you’re a lot higher up!) Because Amy and Eric chose not to see each other before the ceremony, it was particularly important that I capture Eric’s expression as he watched Amy walk down the aisle. I love it!
The ceremony was short and sweet, with a reading from The Hobbit by Amy’s brother and Eric’s sister.
The vows started sweetly … just as they always do …
… and then Eric erupted into giggles. I was dying! In fact, I think we all were – including the fantastic JP. 🙂
Even the ring exchange became hilarious. Love it. 🙂
The recessional filled with bubbles and happy faces was followed by some fun portraits (and lots more belly-laughing) back in the little park behind the hotel.
We had fun making some moody portraits with this giant wheel in the park:
The reception room looked really pretty with blue uplighting and gorgeous centerpieces by New Leaf Flores:
Giggles turned into sweet smiles for the first dance:
Amy hand-painted this adorable little bride and groom. They were originally going to be used as cake toppers, but they ended up guarding the guestbook instead (and of course I had to use them for a quick ring shot):
Speaking of cake … this was the best cake-cutting ever. I love a good cake-smashing! 😉
Then, there were some fantastic parent dances (including an impromptu dance between Eric’s mom and her father):
And the rest of the night was spent dancing to the super cool tunes spun by DJ extraordinaire, Nate Oinonen (see his site White Label DJs for more info). This crowd was super fun:
Thank you all for a ridiculously fun night, and for looking after us so well. I cannot tell you how much I loved working with you all – I am pretty sure I have never laughed quite so hard in all my life. 🙂 Hope you’ve enjoyed the teasers!
