GRACE + DENNIS: PEARL RIVER HILTON WEDDING

We’ve been excited to shoot Grace and Dennis’ wedding ever since we learned they were planning an outdoor ceremony on an autumn afternoon. Indeed, their big day was beyond everything we had hoped for and we couldn’t have asked for better light and foliage – what a perfect backdrop to a Pearl River Hilton wedding!  We started our day with the bride and groom getting prepped in separate hotel rooms. The bride and her bridesmaids were all very easy-going and had a great time getting their makeup done by Vicky C5.

(We must take a moment to thank bridesmaid Faye for this wonderful idea of setting the dress on the green chair in this next photo.)

While the ladies were getting ready, the groom and the groomsmen were doing the same. The whole prep for the men was filled with laughter, stories, and jokes.

After both sides were ready, Grace and Dennis’ got to see each other for the first time on their big day.  Their reveal was very powerful and tender at the same time – we can’t enough of first looks!

Their beautiful ceremony and a fun session with the couple and the wedding party followed – the natural light just before sunset was absolutely perfect.

And then…it was time to party!  The energy this whole group had throughout the night was unbelievable!  The music (provided by Craig Scott Entertainment) and an awesome photo booth (operated by TapSnap) guaranteed a great time for everybody!
