Alex & Stephanie’s Formal Black & Red Wedding
With a touch of quirkiness!
Alex & Stephanie went all out with their formal black & red themed wedding. The thought put into all the details astounded me. From the red kissing balls that lined the aisle for the ceremony to the very dramatic centerpieces for the ceremony and every little detail in between, everyone could tell that a lot of thought and planning went into pulling off their elegant affair.
But they had hints of quirkiness tossed in for good measure. The bears sitting in front of the bride and groom at the head table were one thing. The dinner was grilled chicken and…burgers! How fun is that! They also had glow sticks for their dancing guest’s fun and enjoyment.
The day started bright and wonderful for late September wedding. The sun was shining and it was just warm enough but not too warm. The ceremony included honoring relatives that had passed, a sand ceremony and some very touching vows written by the couple. The reception had a really fun version of the shoe game and of course dancing, cake cutting, bouquet and garter tosses. We finished out the night heading to the same gazebo where we started the day and took some romantic night photos.
The culmination of it all ended up in their massive, wonderfully story telling, black, leather bound album. Thank you Stephanie & Alex for allowing me to be part of your day!
